(SEPT 9) Ji-Hyun Park is putting
her IFBA Strawweight title on the line one more time. Park, who
hasn't lost a bout since 2007, is going for her ninth straight
victory when she takes on challenger Jodie Esquibel on November
19, 2011 in Goeje City, South Korea.
This match marks the second time Park (14-2, 5 KO) will step
into the ring with Esquibel (6-5-1, 2 KO). Park narrowly beat
Esquibel in a very close unanimous decision in July 2009.
Esquibel, who hails from Albuquerque, New Mexico, is looking for
revenge, but knows facing Park in her home country presents a
"The key for Esquibel is to start fast,” said IFBA President
Judy Kulis. “If Park gets out of the gate early and gains
momentum, the passion of the home crowd and Park’s ability to
close out a fight will make things very tough on Esquibel.”
