(JUNE 28) WBAN's rundown
for this weekend's action for female boxing around the world:
To begin with, in Friday action, there are two female bouts on
the Club Sportivo America card, in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina,
flyweight Alejandra Maria de Lujan Rios, 5-3-2 (0KO), of
Rosario, will be fighting Soledad del Valle Frias, 1-3-3 (0KO)
in a four-round bout. In the second female bout, in a battle of
the lightweights, Victoria Bustos, 8-2-0 (0KO), of Rosario, will
take on Yohanna Belen Alfonso, 6-1-0, of San Luis, Argentina.
At the Coliseo Humberto "Toyota" Novoa, Maicao, Colombia, there
is one female bout, and seven male bouts. Undefeated Ana Lozano,
6-0-0 (5KO), of Tachira, Venezuela, will be fighting Yessica “La
Tsunami” Perez, 1-9-1 (1KO), of Barranquilla, Colombia. The two
are scheduled to fight six rounds in the featherweight division.
WBAN hopes that Perez is ready to take on a battle with Lozano,
as she has stopped five of her six opponents, and Perez has lost
her last seven fights being stopped six times out of seven….who
in the world made this matchup?
In the same night in Colombia, different venue, at the Centro
Recreacional Las Vegas, Barranquilla, Colombia, there is a
six-rounder on the card, featuring Glenis Varona, 0-4-1, of
Colombia vs. Dayana “Tigresa” Cordero, 12-4-0 (9KO), of
Barranquilla. Again, on paper, this appears to be yet, another
lop-sided matchup in Colombia.
In Parana, Brazil, at the Centro de Excelência do Basquetebol,
bantamweight Rosilete Dos Santos, 28-5-0 (14KO), of Parana,
Brazil, will be facing Silvia Beatriz Lescano, 8-8-0 (6KO), of
Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, in a 10-round fight. Unknown if the
fight will be a title bout.
In the United States, at the Convention Center, in Albuquerque,
New Mexico, Victoria “La Reina de Guerra” Cisneros, 9-14-2
(3KO), of Albuquerque, win take on Kita Watkins, 7-10-0 (1KO),

interesting to see which one gets that honor.
