Delfine Persoon Wins by a Unanimous Decision over Farias
by Mark A. Jones
April 20, 2014
     
   
   


 

(APR 20)  Zwevezele Belgium: In a battle for supremacy of the lightweight division of women’s boxing, Delfine Persoon wins the WBC lightweight title with a ten-round unanimous decision (96-92/96-92/96-93) over Erica Anabella “La Pantera” Farias who was making her twelfth defense of her former title. The prestigious WBC lightweight title will join the WIBF, WBF, & WIBA lightweight titles around the waist of Persoon. Employing her size and strength advantage, Persoon (29-1, 13 KOs) of Roeselare, Belgium, crowded Farias (19-1, 9 KOs) on the inside not allowing the arguably more skilled Argentine fight from a more comfortable range. During the course of the battle, Farias lost two points resulting from fouls (7th & 9th) and Persoon was deducted a point in round seven for an infraction of the rules.

 

With the win, Persoon calls the shots at lightweight she will probably defend her title against European fare to maximize her popularity in that region. Farias, from Virreyes, Buenos Aires, Argentina, can move up to the talented light-welterweight division which is dominated by Argentine fighters or battle IBF lightweight champion Victoria Bustos (Argentina) or WBO lightweight champion Maria Elena Maderna (Argentina).
