The WBC super flyweight champion, Ana
María Torres, did justice to her sobriquet, "The Warrior", when she
defeated the dangerous Dahianna Santana by a wide margin on all 3
cards in front of a sell-out crowd in the Coliseo Carlos “Teo” Cruz
in Santo Domingo (DR).
The Mexican fighter has had to put up with all kinds of pressure
since she arrived here – not to mention the imposition of two judges
from the Dominican Republic (Pedro Hernández y Ramón Valdez) - but
at the end of the day, the truth was respected and Torres received
her just reward.
Santana confirmed that she is the best of the local boxers as she
stood up to the heavy artillery of the Mexican, although on three
separate occasions it looked like she was about to visit the canvas
Spurred on by more than 7,000 of her compatriots, who never stopped
shouting, Santana tried to box from a distance. Nevertheless, the
strength, determination and superb physical condition of the
champion allowed her to maintain a comfortable dominance throughout
the ten rounds.
At the end of the fight, the Dominican fans recognized the
superiority of the Mexican fighter and gave her a warm ovation.
