(OCT 11) Ava "Lady of Boxing"
Knight, of Chico, California, is between a "Roca" and a Hard
Place! ----But she is as hard as
nails and has already showed a diamond like imperviousness!
Ava's in the final phase of her preparation for the fight
against WBC Lt. Flyweight champion Ibeth “Roca” Zamora, in
Toluca, Mexico, on October 26th.
Knight may be the "Lady of Boxing", but she has earned the nickname
“Mexican Destroyer” for having defeated several Mexican fighters
including Mariana Juarez!
This fight against "Roca", was ordered as mandatory by the WBC and
is the challenging opportunity that the WBC Diamond champion has
been eagerly seeking. She said:
“I'm glad my work is being valued. Female boxing is developing
and of course it can lead a card. This will be one great fight!
“I got absolutely nothing against Mexican fighters, it's just
that I have had to fight them and I have a goal to accomplish. I
now face another Mexican fighter. Ibeth stands in my way between
me and the world title. I do have a lot of Mexican fans who know
and appreciate my quality and they don’t care about nationality.
My victory will be for them!”
This card will be done by Promociones del Pubelo with the
support of Cerveceria Corona.
