Her great charisma and fanbase
around Mexico make Ana Maria Torres a great attraction for
boxing fans, a fact that has made many venues around Mexico to
fight for the right to present her. That was the case with Los
Cabos, Baja California, where “La Guerrera” will defend her
The show was named “Su Majestad, La Guerrera” (Her Majesty, La
Guerrera), and is presented by HG Boxing “The Home of the
champions”, that is led by Hector Garcia, a promoter that has
been distinguished to give impulse to female boxing in Mexico.
The show was originally planned to be held at Guadalajara, but
it was decided to change it to Los Cabos, one of the most
beautiful touristic attractions in Mexico. The date is the
same, which will take place on October 8th.
Torres will fight again after successfully beating Jackie Nava
in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, where she obtained a WBC Diamond
belt for the first time for a female boxer, distinction only
attained by some of the greatest boxers of our time, like Manny
Pacquiao, Bernard Hopkins and Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.
The show will be available for free, on channel 5 on the now
traditional “Sabados de Corona”. The undercard is pretty good
too, as WBF Flyweight Champion Irma Sanchez will defend her
title for the first time.
