(MAY 3) Former World Boxing
Federation (WBF) Womens World Featherweight Champion Stephanie
Ducastel from France will be attempting to become a two-weight
champion on May 12, when she fights Argentinian Maria Soledad
Capriolo for the vacant WBF World Super Featherweight crown.
Ducastel, 7-3-1 (2), has already achieved amazing things in only
eleven professional fights. She captured the French national
Featherweight title in her fifth outing, and then became
European champion in her eighth fight. In fight number ten, in
December of 2015, she won the WBF World Featherweight title.
However, since then she has only fought once, a non-title
victory this past January, and decided to vacate her
Featherweight title to move up in weight and pursue a new goal:
to become a world champion in a second weigh-class.
For Maria Soledad Capriolo, 7-5-4 (0), it will be her first
opportunity to win a significant title. Nicknamed “La Bonita”,
the 35-year-old from Cordoba has never shied away from a
challenge, and since turning professional in 2012 she has
happily fought anyone put in front of her.
The Stephanie Ducastel vs. Maria Soledad Capriolo WBF Womens
World Super Featherweight title fight, on Friday May 12 at
Gymnase Des Malteries in Strasbourg, France, is the main event
of a show promoted by Andre Panza and his Panza Gym.
