Maricela Cornejo, 25, a professional middleweight boxer, is also a reigning Boxing Illustrated Middleweight Champion. The 5'10" Cornejo grew up in Grandview, Washington,  and in addition ot boxing, she excelled as an athletic in volleyball, basketball, as well as pitching for her fast pitch high school team.  When she is not in the ring, she is a television and movie actress and spokesmodel.

When Maricela graduated from high school, she went off to play volleyball at a nearby Community College before moving to Seattle, Washington. She was only in Seattle for two years then ventured off to pursue her dreams in Los Angeles, California.   When Maricela arrived in LA, not knowing anyone, found her networking skills helped her through  certain situations.

During Maricela's two year stay in Los Angeles, she was able to accomplish getting in a handful background movies and Spanish soap opera appearances, including her first speaking role which Eric Roberts in the comedy movie "White T".

In 2012 Maricela set her one goal, and that was to fight in one amateur bout.  She then trained for a year before moving  to Las Vegas, Nevada,  to fight in her first bout.

Undefeated as an amateur, 2-0 both first rounders, Cornejo won a gold medal at The Arnold in 2012 for the middleweight title in a walkover victory.  After the two amateur fights, she found great difficulty finding any more amateur competition in the middleweight division. With that, Maricela made a decision  to turn professional.

On August 4, 2012, Maricela fought Mia Henderson at the Cobb Center in Atlanta, Georgia, won by a four-round majority decision.   The hard fought victory resulted in Cornejo winning the Boxing Illustrated Novice Middleweight Championship. [The BI Novice Championships are for fighters with zero to five fights].

On November 17, 2012, In Maricela's second pro bout, she faced Terri Love at the Four Points Sheridan, in Sacramento, California.  She won by a third round TKO, bringing her boxing record to 2-0-0 (1KO). 

On March 18, 2013 on Sunday Night Spotlight, Maricela was interviewed, where she talked about her journey from modeling, to the Wild Card gym, to the Mayweather Boxing Club.

 

Cornejo  is currently training with legendary Floyd Mayweather Sr. at the  Mayweather Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada.  At this time, Boxrec has Maricela ranked in the USA at #2, and #14 worldwide.
