(OCT 13) Tonight at the Palacio de Deporte, in Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico, and webcasted on the WBC website, Mariana "Barbie" Juarez, 112, 35-5-3 (16KO), of Mexico City, Mexico, and current WBC flyweight world champion will be fighting for the vacant DIAMOND WBC Flyweight world title against Ava "Lady of Boxing" Knight, 9-1-3 (5KO), Chico, California, USA, current IBF Flyweight world champion.  The two will be fighting 10 rounds.

WEIGH-IN - OCTOBER 12

At the scales, both Knight and Juarez had no problem making weight with Knight coming in at a trim 111 lbs., and Juarez, 112. While the two were up on stage at the scales, after weighing in, they happily posed with each other, and there were obviously no glares, or trash talk between the two.

Both Knight and Juarez looked to be in superb condition, and this will in all probability be one of the best matches for 2012, with plenty of action in this high-profile world title fight.
WBAN was told that Knight is predicting that she can finish the bout with Juarez before the fifth round. Juarez on the other hand feels that the Mexico City's altitude will take a toll on Knight, and she feels that she will also get an early KO.

This particular title for Knight and Juarez, who will be fighting for the WBC Diamond Flyweight title, will be the second-ever female bout to fight for such a belt. The first time that females fought for this belt was when Ana Maria Torres fought Jackie Nava.

ardon, in a 12-round title bout for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Featherweight title; Ricardo Alvarez will fight Maurico Pintor in a 12 rounder for the vacant WBC Continental Americas Light welterweight title; and two other men's undercard bouts.
