In the first female fight of the year, Panamanian Yaditza “Tigrilla” Pérez (14-13-1, 6 KOs) will try to snatch the World Boxing Association Super Flyweight belt from Mexican Maribel “Pantera” Ramírez (13-9-2, 3 KOs). The bout will take place in Lima, Peru on the 30th of this month.
After a long period of inactivity, champion Ramírez returns to the ring with a lot of enthusiasm and ready to defend the title she won on May 19th, 2018 when she defeated Linda Laura Lecca at home. That great achievement came after several opportunities in which the same WBA belt was at stake, but “Pantera” had not achieved the desired success.
From the city of Chiriquí, Panama, the challenger Yaditza Pérez is ranked fifth in the WBA ranking and owns the WBA FEDELATIN belt. She won the latter belt in February 2020 at the KO DRUGS program held in her native country. She is also undefeated in her last five fights, which has opened the door for her to fight for a world championship.
“Pantera” will face a great challenge against “Tigrilla” in the same land where she has been consecrated.
