But unfortunately as they say,
"It is...what it is". So with that said, I will

On this date, Maria Salinas, 104¼, 22, of McAllen, Texas,
won the vacant WBC "Youth" World light flyweight title, when her
opponent, Tania Cosme, 105, unknown age, retired in the fifth round. The bout
was scheduled for 10 rounds.
Tale of the tape for ratings and boxing records of these two:
Salinas came into the fight with a
8-1-1 record. Cosme,
2-1-1 (0KO) record. Salinas is ranked #11 and Cosme, ranked
#34 with Boxrec.

fact that Salinas fought in the same month against Esmeralda
Moreno for another WBC title, losing that bout, just prior to
fighting in this WBC Title bout.]
This was a rematch for Salinas and Cosme, whereas in their first
fight, Cosme lost by a six-round unanimous decision.
Cosme's boxing record going into the championship fight:

1-0-0. With only four pro fights on her resume,

Next, one might ask: How do these two rate within
the WBC organization they were fighting for?
Response: In the WBC ratings, in the July 2011
ratings, Salinas is ranked #22 as a light flyweight, and Cosme
is not ranked.
You figure it out folks....WBAN
