(FEB 26) In an epic combat,
that maintained the attendants at the edge of their seats that
were present last night at the Olympic Coliseum of the
University of Guadalajara, Monterrey's
Arely "Ametralladora" Mucino recovered her condition as world champion after defeating
San Francisco, California's
Melissa "Mighty" McMorrow with a
10-round split decision.
Arely and Melissa did not
hesitate for a moment when they stepped into the ring and from
the very beginning were throwing a barrage of combinations that
made the fight very exciting for boxing fans.
McMorrow throughout the fight
continued to press the action and Muciño tried her best to push
Melissa out with counter punches, succeeding at times and making
Melissa stop in her tracks. Arely went to the body effectively
as she had Melissa in trouble at the end of the eight round.
Visibly exhausted, both fighters
never stopped throwing punches, reaching big numbers in the last
two rounds, in my opinion, Arely getting the best part.
At the end of the fight the
judges scored the fight 93-97 (McMorrow), and 98-92 and 97-93 in
favor of Muciño, getting the win and with that the distinction f
of being a world champion for the second time in her career,
this time as the new Interim WBA flyweight title.
