(AUG 25) This weekend WBAN has
listed some of the highlights of women's boxing that will take
place worldwide. We would love to be listing much more
boxing action but it looks like slim pickin's otherwise.
On Saturday night,
August 27, 2016 - Palenque de la Feria,
Gomez Palacio, Durango, Mexico, Mariana Juarez will fight
Daniela Bermudez in a ten-round bout. This will be a great
matchup between these two. This will open up an opportunity for
the two to challenge for a world title with the WBC. Juarez
said she is well-prepared because she knows that this will be a
war with Bermudez.
