Venezuelan glamour model and female boxing champion Ogleidis “La Niña” Suárez was declared new WBA “regular” female featherweight champion after “Defector Girl Boxer” Hyun-mi Choi of South Korea gave up the belt to campaign at super featherweight. Choi made the last defense of her crown against American Shannon O’Connell whom he defeated by unanimous decision on May 8 at the KBS Sports World, Seoul, South Korea. In all, she made seven successful defenses of the WBA world title she won in her pro debut.
Suarez is expected to defend the belt in the summer. She is a world boxing champion, professional model, actress, sports commentator, television presenter and professional dancer.
