Thirteen down
By Ewan Whyte
April 24, 2007

     
   
   
   
   

Last time Jessica Trejo of Querétaro tangled with NABF bantamweight champion Zulina Muñoz, she didn't last two minutes: a right cross that caught her in the left eye set her knees wobbling, and an uppercut followed by a left hook put her down for the count. On Saturday evening in the Arena Azteca Budokan, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl, she fared slightly better, detaining 20-year-old Zulina for all of four rounds, but the result was no different This brings Muñoz's official record to 14-0-0 with 13 KOs.

 

The irony is that she isn't a slugger; at least, that's not the way she thinks of herself. "I'm a disciplined fighter," she told Miguel Scagno of Notiver, "and I try also to be a stylist in the ring". One of Muñoz's great strengths is that her left hand is almost as good as her right. And her finishing, as befits a nurse, is 'clinical'. "When I've softened up an opponent and it's time to take her out," she told Notiver, "I like to finish with her that instant – the faster the better."

 

All this in an interview with the local press in February, when she travelled to Veracruz to confront another of the rising stars of Mexican boxing, 16-year-old Irazema de la Fuente – at that time (unofficially) 8 and 0 – in her home town. A delicate mission, as she acknowledged in an interview with the local paper. "I'm here for one reason," she confessed to Miguel Scagno, "which is to knock your girl out. They're trying to line me up a world title fight and I need a convincing result.

 

" I prepare 100% per cent for all my fights – for each fight as though it were my last – but for this one, I've prepared even harder because she's going to be fighting in front of her own people, and that always provides extra motivation."

 

Irazema, a Rubenesque young beauty "who looks more like a model," noted Scagno, "than a boxer, such is the flawlessness of her complexion," hadn't analyzed videos of 'La Loba' but had watched her shadow box "which gives you a pretty good idea," she explained, "of the way someone fights".

 

"I have tremendous mobility in the ring; I can take a punch; and I have a powerful right hand. I also have good technique, but if ever I do have to slug it out with someone, I can. No one's ever beaten me and I never stop coming forward."

 

De la Fuente knew that if she beat Muñoz, doors would open. But it was not to be. As is reported elsewhere on the site, Zulina took her in the fourth.
