Saturday night sees even more world titles on the line as Germany’s Sarah ‘Baby Face’ Bormann 9(7)-0-0 defends her Woman’s IBF World Light Flyweight and Global Boxing Union Female World Light Flyweight Titles against Belgian resident Sanae Jah 15(2)-3-1.
The undefeated twenty eight year comes into this fight with a very respectable 78% KO rate compared to Jah’s KO rate of 11%. With the home town support and the better record I would expect Bormann to by KO. This fight is held in the Ufgauhalle, Baden-Wuttemberg , Germany, and promoted by Sauerland Event.
Heading to Mexico Victoria Torres Canul 9(3)-0-0 takes on fellow Mexican Jasseth Noriega 24(5)-4-2 for the vacant WBC Silver Female Super Flyweight title.
Although Canul is undefeated I think this huge challenge of taking on Noriega has come too soon. Although Noriega has four defeats to her name the latest defeat was three years ago coming at the hands of Jessica Nery Plata 23(3)-2-0. Canul looks to have an inflated record as this bout will be the first time she has fought an opponent with more wins than loses against their name.
My prediction is this will go to the judges’ score cards and Noriega will be the winner. This fight will be held in Lienzo Charro, Jalisco, Mexico, promoted by Clase y Talento Boxeo and Promociones del Pueblo, televised by Mexio Televisa.
Friday January 25th, 2018 sees Argentina’s IBF World Female Light Flyweight champion Evelyn Nazarena Bermudez 11(2)-0-0 defend her title on home soil against Venezuelan Luisana Bolivar 10(6)-5-1. The undefeated twenty two year old should have win this bout fairly comfortably.
Although Bolivar boasts a better KO rate at 38% compared to 18%, most of her fights have been against fighters who have 5 or less bouts under their belts, the only times she fought someone with 5 or more fights she lost.
Bermudez will look to take this fight the distance and win on points, while Bolivar would be looking for the early KO. This fight will be held in the Club Atletico Sportivo Matienzo, Argentina, promoted by O.R Promotions, Osvaldo Rivero and televised by Argentina TyC Sports.
Finally we travel to Nicaragua where Hanna Gabriels 18(11)-2(1)-1 steps back in the ring for the first time since her UD defeat at the hands of Claressa Shields 8(2)-0-0 in June 2018, she will be defending her WBA World Female Super Welterweight title against Australia’s Sarah Dwyer 3(1)-4(2)-2.
The is only going to be one outcome to this fight and that is a Gabriel’s victory via KO. This fight will take place at Baco Discoteca, Nicarague, and is promoted by Nica Boxing – Pablo Osuna.
