Mexican Maribel Ramirez will defend her World Boxing Association (WBA) super flyweight crown this Saturday against Chilean Daniela Asenjo at the Gran Arena Monticello, in San Francisco de Mostazal, Chile.
The South American country will have a great opportunity to see its boxer challenging the tough Mexican for the world title in a 10-round bout.
Ramirez will be making the second defense of her championship, which she won in May 2018 and defended for the first time in October of the same year. The 35-year-old “Pantera” has already won headline fights in Peru or Switzerland, so being on the road is not a drawback for her.
This time she will have to face the euphoria of a crowd that will be cheering for the local Asenjo, a 31-year-old fighter who has been Fedelatin champion of the pioneer organization and now will make the leap for her first opportunity for a world championship.
Ramirez has 13 wins, 9 losses, 2 draws and 3 knockouts, while Asenjo comes in with a record of 11 wins, 3 losses, 2 draws and 2 knockouts.
