The March battle between Zulina “La Loba” Munoz (44-1-2, 27 KOs) and Mariana “Barbie” Juarez (40-7-3, 17 KOs) for the WBC World super-flyweight title doesn’t have a firm date, but will likely take place on either the 7th or 14th of the month. The venue is also unknown and is drifting between Hidalgo and Mexico City.
To achieve victory, the 27-year-old Munoz is combining physical activity and sports medicine to aid her in improving her physical strength for the epic battle. “I will go to 200 percent; I have a good preparation for this commitment. I will go much better focused because I want to go out with my hand up,” said Munoz.
The 35-year-old Juarez is a difficult opponent for Munoz due to her 340 rounds of ring experience and the quality of her opponents over her 17-year ring career. High profile battles with Ana Maria Torres, Esmeralda Moreno, Arely Mucino, and American Melissa McMorrow combined with the length of her tenure in boxing make her savvy opponent.
Rumors of this fight transpiring have been whispered in women’s boxing circles for 18 months, and it finally appears as if it will happen.
