Barbie ready to repel ‘Thai Invasion’

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The final press conference for “Thai invasion” in the Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta on the Nayarit Riviera in an event organized by Promociones del Pueblo and broadcast on Televisa. In the main event the Mexican former world champion Mariana “Barbie” Juarez makes the first title defense of her WBC International super flyweight title against Thailand’s Buakaew Onesongchaigym.

“I’m coming with everything, I did an excellent preparation just like a world title fight. She comes from a land of warriors, a Muay Thai fighter so she’s not new to getting punched, said Juarez. Buakaew told reporters to expect a surprise.

World ranked contenders Julio “Pollito” Ceja and Juan José “Goofy” Montes will vie for the WBC bantamweight silver belt and Juan “Churritos” Hernandez and Saul “Baby” Juarez clash in a featherweight eight-rounder.
