Looks like Mexican WBC female flyweight world champion Mariana Juarez (35-5-3, 16 KOs) will face American IBF flyweight world champion Ava Knight (9-1-3, 5 KOs) on October 13 at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City. The Juarez camp had been initially eying a showdown with WBA super bantamweight world champion Jackie Nava for the WBC diamond belt. “This fight is almost certain,” said promoter Oswaldo Kuchle. “Juarez and Knight are two great representatives of the sport, the fans want to see these fights and we’re willing to make these big fights.” Kinght-Juarez fight would be one of the more interesting women’s fights in recent times.
