Da Costa Takes On Macedo In First WBF World Championship Defense

(MAY 20)  World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Light Flyweight Champion Anne Sophie Da Costa will defend her title for the first time on Saturday May 28 at the Salle Frederique Bronquard in Tinqueux, France, only a stones-throw from her hometown of Reims, when she takes on Soledad Macedo from Uruguay.

Da Costa, 20-2 (9), made her big breakthrough in 2012 when she captured the WBF World Srawweight crown. Last November she became a two-division world titlist, winning the WBF Light Flyweight title by stopping Thailand´s Ploynapa Sakrungrueng in five rounds.

The 33-year-old champion has left nothing to chance in her training camp leading up to the fight with Macedo, and has reportedly sparred almost 140 rounds with various sparring partners, including former WBF World Flyweight Champion Amira Hamzaoui.

With a record of 13-11-1 (4), Soledad “La Negra” Macedo (33) doesn’t immediately appear to be a world class fighter, based on the numbers, but nothing could be further from the truth. Having mostly lost to top-notch opposition, she is a two-time Uruguayan national champion, and three times challenged for world championships.

In her most recent outing, this past March, she proved her class by moving up to Super Flyweight to win the Uruguayan national title with a unanimous decision over another former world title-challenger in Stefany Bizquiazo, and she travels to France full of confidence that she can finally become world champion in her fourth attempt.

Da Costa vs. Macedo is the main event of a show promoted by William Guillaume, and will be preceded by four additional professional fights and six amateur bouts. Usually a big draw in and around Reims, Da Costa is expected to have massive support on the night.
