Katia (Katty) Gutierrez

Katia (Katy) Gutiérrez was born on April 29, 1989 in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. She comes from a well-known boxing family that spans several generations of champions at the Betillo Gutierrez gym in Los Mochis, all of them led to boxing by Katia's grandfather Henry Gutierrez. Katia promised she would become a world champion to honor her late mother Guadalupe Gutiérrez. She made good on that promise in the fourth year of her pro career.

On May 24, 2008 at Gimnasio La Bola in Guamuchil, Sinaloa, Mexico, Katia again defeated Guadalupe Cortes, this time by a four-round split decision.  Cortes fell to 1-3-1 (0 KO's) and has not fought since.

On June 14, 2008 at Auditorio Benito Juarez in Los Mochis, Katia (105¾ lbs) knocked out Flor Verdugo (108 lbs) at 0:37 in the second round of a scheduled four-rounder.  Verdugo fell to 0-2.

On October 2, 2009 at El Forum in Los Mochis, Katia (108 lbs) again knocked out Flor Verdugo (111¼ lbs), this time in the second round of a scheduled eight-rounder.  Verdugo fell to 0-5 with this second loss to Gutierrez.

Gutierrez attempted to go toe to toe with the more experienced Sanchez throughout the fight but was unable to slow her aggressive and well-conditioned opponent down.  From the second round onwards Gutierrez was forced to back up as she tried to weather a storm of hooks and combinations from the relentlessly pursuing Sanchez. Gutierrez was often backed into the ropes where she fought fiercely but took more telling shots than she was able to throw.  Gutierrez finished the fight with a spirited final round but her effort was too late to turn the tide as Sanchez improved her record to 19-4-1 (5 KO's).

Dunaway fell to 23-10-1 with the loss. 

On July 2, 2011 at Gimnasio Nuevo León in Monterrey,  México, Katia (104¾ lbs) retained the IBF Straw-weight title with a ten-round unanimous (99-91,99-91,98-92) decision over Ana Fabiola Arrazola (104¾ lbs) of Tlalnepantla, Mexico.  Arrazola fell to 21-7-3 (18 KOs).
