In an elite level women’s boxing match, Mexican WBC light flyweight world champion Ibeth “La Roca” Zamora (19-5, 5 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over “Mexican Destroyer” Ava Knight (12-2, 5 KOs) from the USA on Saturday at the Agustín Millán Gym in Toluca, Mexico State. Zamora, the only Mexican female to win world titles in different categories, built a 77-75, 78-74 and 79-73 after eight rounds according to WBC open scoring, meaning that Knight needed a knockout with just two rounds left. It didn’t happen as Zamora won by scores of 97-94, 97-93 and 98-92.
In other action, super bantamweight Rey Vargas (17-0, 15 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Yuki Murai to retain the WBC Youth belt.
