This Friday night sees two female world title fights, on two different continents. Yesica Yolanda Bopp 33(14)-1-0 defends her belt in South America in her native Argentina against fellow Argentinian Soledad del Valle Frias 13(4)-10-4.
Bopp comes into this fight high on confidence as the thirty three year old has only tasted defeat once in her professional career and that was against Jessica Chavez back in 2013. Bopp in her most recent fight back in November 2017 saw her win by TKO against Deborah Rengifo read about this here Bopp v Rengifo, who then got back to winning ways with an unanimous decision over Endrimar Pirona and got herself a World title fight against Anabel Ortiz which she subsequently lost. Read more on this here Ortiz v Rengifo result.
Frias comes into this fight on the back of a split decision win over Alejandra Maria de Lujan Rios to take home the South American female fly weight title and bagging herself a world title shot. Previous to this she lost to Daniela Romina Bermudez by unanimous decision, who was also beat by her current opponent Yesica Bopp via unanimous decision. To me I believe Bopp will win this fight convincingly she has too much ability to lose this.
For the second title fight we head to Europe where Finlands Eva Wahkstrom 21(3)-0-1 defends her world title on home soil against American Melissa St Vil 10(1)-2-4. Wahkstrom has only ever fought in Finland during her professional career and again enjoys this luxury against opponent St Vil. St Vi is no stranger to having to travel to face opponents as she has previously fought in New Zealand, China, USA and Haiti. On her travels she has won four and drew one of her five fights abroad. So she is used to fighting in hostile environments. St Vil aka Little Miss Tyson gives away five centimetres in height to Wahlstrom aka Eva Rasanen.
As St Vi’s alias suggests she will come to fight but with her being on foreign soil I can the judges decisions going against her and in favour of Wahlstrom who has never fought abroad or tasted defeat. Is this a coincidence or is she just a better boxer? Based on this I do believe Wahlstrom will be awarded the victory.
The last big female fight of the weekend is for the interim WBC world female bantamweight title in Austria where Eva Voraberger 22(11)-5(1)-0 has the home advantage as she takes on Serbian Nina Radovanovic 12(3)-1(1)-0. With the home crowd behind her I believe Voraberger will win the fight.
