The satisfaction of feeling the round winner gave her a smile after every bell. The Mexican Jessica Nery Plata, defeated Kim Clavel in Canada after ten spectacular rounds and retained the World Boxing Association light flyweight championship and the WBC.
With all odds against her, being a visitor and facing the favorite, Nery Plata managed to impose her boxing skills. Plata knew how to take advantage of his physical and technical conditions and aptitudes.
Keeping the counter-punching position, she led Clavel to make a mistake. An unstoppable Clavel was left faded in front of the intelligence, precision and efficiency of the Mexican boxer’s performance.
In each passage the pulse rate rose, the euphoria of the public increased and the seats seemed to disappear. The spectators could not lose any vision while the blows of one and the other boxer sought glory.
Kim Clavel was the one who sought to take the fight to the exchange in a sedate way, but that warrior’s impetus, besides making her worthy of applause, also led her to become inaccurate. Nery Plata held with roots the strategy of a backward offensive making use of the length of her arms as well as the strength of her fists that ended up hurting.
In this way, the Aztec fighter not only continues to hold the WBA super champion title at 108 pounds, but also added to her shoulder the WBC title of which Clavel used to hold.
Nery Plata, 28, improved her record to 29 wins with 3 knockouts and only 2 losses. Meanwhile, Kim Clavel was left with the first loss of his professional career that adds to his 16 wins.
