Toss Some of these belts in the River

(OCT 5) WBAN has received a press release this morning on an upcoming women's bout that will take place this coming Saturday, on October 8th,  in Los Cabos, Baja California, Mexico.

23-year-old World Boxing Federation (WBF) Women’s Flyweight World Champion Irma “La Guerita” Sanchez is set to make the first defense of her title.

Sanchez, 20-5-1 (6KO), will fight the much less experienced opponent Susana Cruz Perez, 5-2 (2KO).

WBAN checked an impartial world ranking of women boxers on Boxrec, and found that in the Flyweight division, Sanchez is ranked #6, and her opponent is ranked #13.

The promoter of the event is Hector Garcia, of HG Boxing, and the fight will be televised by Mexico Televisa. 

Quotes by Sanchez in Press Release:

“I was actually hoping to make my first defense in Guadalajara, but as World Champion you have to be ready to fight anywhere and I hope we will get a lot of support in Los Cabos”, said Sanchez, who is confident she will beat Perez convincingly:

“I am concentrating on my preparations, and with that I am sure I will get a good result. I always work hard, and never think about losing. I know there are no easy opponents, but I feel great physically and mentally”.   [Sanchez Record on Boxrec]

On Susana Cruz Perez in Press Release:

Despite a relatively short confirmed fight-record, Susana Cruz Perez already has two title fights under her belt. Last year she lost a split decision to current IBF World Champion Jessica Chavez for the NABF championship, and in June she came up short against former WBA World Champion Ibeth Zamora Silva.

Last time out Perez beat Laura Sanchez on points, and she will be fighting hard to win her first world title in her third crack at a world-class fellow Mexican.  [Perez Boxing Record]

A Few words from WBAN, Sue TL Fox:

Personally, I would like to take some of these world title belts, and toss them in the river. Let us just continue to ignore the top women boxers ranked in the sport and for female boxers who have even lost to some of the top boxers and somehow manage to win a world title belt.  In my own opinion, a boxer is a "world champion" when they beat the top contenders in the sport.  Related Story:
