Mexican WBC World female heavyweight champion Alejandra Jimenez 9(7)-0-0 (top left) successfully defended her title against Canadian Vanessa Lepage Joanisse now 3(1)-1(1)-0, in the Area Oasis, Cancun, Mexico. With both fighters putting their unbeaten records on the line this was a high stakes fight with Jimenez winning by TKO in the third.
Joanisse although at a significant height disadvantage seemed to start the quicker of the two and set to work dictating the pace of the fight. This quick pace continued into the second round but by round three of the ten round contest she had tired very quickly. Jimenez who had been biding her time seen her opportunity unleashed everything she had on to Joanisse who was on the end of a relentless onslaught. Seemingly unable to defend herself from the barrage and not throwing any punches back the referee and no choice but to step in and end the contest.
