On Friday, May 20, at Coliseo Caucasia in Caucasia, Colombia, interim WBA World female bantamweight champion Dayana “El Diamante” Cordero (14-5-2, 10 KOs), from Panama City, Panama, by way of Caucasia, Colombia, will defend her 118-pound title against Maribel Ramirez (9-8-2, 3 KOs), from Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico.

Twenty-year-old Cordero turned pro in 2010. She has made several attempts at winning a world title during the past six years, including the WBA World female super lightweight and vacant WBA World female super bantamweight titles, against Monica Silvina Acosta (16-0-2 coming in) and Yesica Patricia Marcos (19-0-1), both in 2012.

“El Diamante” was unsuccessful both times, but all that changed when she scored a fourth round TKO over Sayda Mosquera in El Salvador in January of this year.

Next Friday’s fight will be the first defense of her interim WBA title.
