Boxing highlights of 2021 for the WBA

Knockouts, consolidations, vibrant performances. The boxers representing the World Boxing Association have had a luxurious year. Some of the figures to highlight for the WBA are: Katie Taylor, Jessica McCaskill, Seniesa Estrada and Kali Reis. In addition, fans will have the chance to participate in the final decision of who should be the chosen 2021 warrior. 

We have the undisputed 135-pound champion, Katie Taylor from Ireland who remains undefeated with 20 fights with 6 KO. In June 2019 she starred against Delfine Persoon an impressive battle of which Taylor ended triumphant where she was crowned with all the belts of the division.  Then, she made six consecutive fights with renowned fighters, among which has been highlighted, in addition to the rematch with Persoon, the exchange against Natasha Jonas in May of this year. 

The next personality to walk this virtual red carpet is the American Jessica McCaskill, who surprised in 2020 when she dethroned Cecilia Braekhus, who was the undisputed queen of 147 pounds, besides having 36 successful defenses.  In March, McCaskill and Braekhus met again and the result reaffirmed the strength of McCaskill who returned to the ring on December 4 and defeated Kandi Wyatt by technical knockout in the seventh round.  McCaskill holds all the welterweight belts. 

And also from the United States, there is the unstoppable Seniesa “Super Bad” Estrada who with a unique style in her guard, movements, has left in the way each of the opponents since her debut in May 2011. One of her most spectacular boxing performances was against Guatemalan Maria Micheo at the end of the year, whom she knocked out in the fourth round. Also, Estrada made the first defense of the WBA minimum belt she won in March after defeating Mexican Anabel Ortiz. 

And finally, also from North America, Kali Reis has harvested and managed to sustain her conquests. This tough fighter, owner of the WBA and WBO Super Lightweight belts, is racing towards the undisputed position.
