(NOV 1) With a commitment to
showcase "boxing at its best", the last fight card of their
schedule is no exception for California boxing hall of fame
promoter Bobby D. Presents. On Friday, November 21st, San Diego,
CA, will be the host of a world title when Tijuana's Kenia
Enriquez (12-0, 6KO) faces the much more experienced Ana "La
Bronca" Arrazola (20-10-2, 13KO) for the vacant WBO flyweight
The Enriquez vs Arrazola world
title fight is scheduled for ten explosive rounds and will
headline a jam-packed six bout fight card billed as "Dangerous
Divas II". The event is co-promoted with Latin America’s most
successful promoter, Zanfer.
The last championship fight waged in San Diego County was nearly
ten years ago when multi-divisional champion Israel “Magnifico”
Vazquez defended his newly acquired IBF bantamweight title on
December 28th, 2004, at the Sycuan Resort and Casino in El Cajon
via 5th round technical knockout of Artyom Simonyan. The
historic night of November 21st will be the first time a female
world title is disputed in “America’s Finest City”.
The scheduled main event will mark the fifth fight this year for
the undefeated Enriquez who last April stopped former world
champion Jolene Blackshear in seven to capture the NABF light
flyweight title. Along with the regional title, wins over Selene
Lopez, Noemi Bosques and Mayela Perez catapulted Enriquez to a
top 5 ranking with all the major organizations which led to the
world title opportunity.
The title was vacated by Argentinean "Tutti" Bopp who after
becoming pregnant also left the WBO and WBA light flyweight
Arrazola, the first southpaw Enriquez has faced as a pro, is the
most experienced fighter the charismatic Tijuana fighter has
Arrazola is coming off a challenge for the IBF light flyweight
title as well as reigning as the Mexican national and WBF
champion. In a thirty-two fight career Arrazola owns wins
against highly ranked Anahi Torres twice and a draw with former
world champion Jessica “Kika” Chavez and has faced the likes of
the aforementioned Bopp, current world champion Ibeth “La Roca”
Zamora, Susi Kentikian, Ji-Hyun Park and Naoko Shibata to prove
she will be a difficult adversary for the twenty-one year
Local fan favorite Prince "Tiger" Smalls (5-0-1) returns after a
six-month hiatus in the semi-main event in a now classic border
war when he faces Tijuana spark plug Jose Iñiguez (7-18-2, 1KO)
in Smalls' first scheduled six rounder.
In a special attraction, lightweight Leon “3rd Generation”
Spinks III (7-1-1, 3KO), grandson of former heavyweight champion
“Neon” Leon Spinks, will also be featured in a six round bout.
Rounding out the card will be San Diego's Mulapi “The African
Mexican” Enjani (1-0), Los Angeles’ Reece “Pale Horse” Bennett
in his pro debut with one more bout fleshing out the card.
