(MAR 29)  This past Saturday afternoon, March 26th, inside the Perro Salado Hall in the Zona Rio of Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, former WBO female flyweight champion Kenia Enriquez (15-1, 7KO) hosted her second annual all-female invitational amateur tournament. With fighters coming in from all over the city as well as Tecate, Mexico, and Coachella, California, the afternoon was filled with great amateur boxing, raffles and awards.

“This is the second year in a row we organize the tournament and the event but especially the fights have gotten better,” Enriquez stated. “The tournament is not as nearly and as well attended as we hope but we know it’s a process. Just like in female professional boxing, we need to keep working to earn our sport within the sport and we are ready to keep grinding away to make sure this tournament is not only important to female boxing in the city but to the boxing scene in general.”

Bouts were held from under 100 pounds all the way to 160 pounds during the tournament.

The winner of each final would be awarded a t-shirt, a trophy and a special World Boxing Council medal while the sub-champion was awarded a t-shirt and a medal naming her as such. Every participant received a certificate while t-shirts were raffled as well as boxing clubs.

“We have received some great support for the second year running and that is the reason why we can continue to keep having the tournament,” Kenia explained. “The WBC has always been a great supporter of the tournament as well as my promoter Bobby D. Presents. There has been also a number of private sponsors who without them this wouldn’t be possible. I would like to thank all of them for their continued support.”

Enriquez plans to have the third edition of her tournament early next year. She is scheduled to face world-ranked Amaris Quintana (9-2-2, 1KO) in an eight round junior flyweight bout on the undercard of the Gennady Golovkin vs Dominic Wade title fight on Saturday, April 23rd, at the Forum on Los Angeles, CA.
