Boxing Result

Acuna tops Nava!

By Lee Bates

In a women’s world title from the Estadio Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Marcela Acuna of Argentina (32-5, 16 KOs) retained her WBA/WBC super bantamweight titles with a unanimous decision against former world champion Jackie Nava (19-3-2, 10 KOs) of Mexico. The final scores were 99-90, 98-91, and 98-92 all in favor of Acuna. Nava was very game and pressured Acuna most of the fight but Acuna’s defense was very tight and she countered with headsnapping punches throughout the bout. Acuna dropped Nava with a double jab in the final seconds of the bout to put an exclamation point on her victory.
