Super featherweight contender Melissa St. Vil, 132, posted a six-round, unanimous decision (60-54 x3) over Diana Garcia, 136 1/2, the highest weight of Garcia’s 15-year career. With the win, St. Vil wins her third consecutive bout improving to (9-2-3).
St. Vil is ranked #7 in the world at super featherweight by boxrec and owns the WBC Silver female super-featherweight title. She won the mentioned title by upsetting former IBF super bantamweight champion Katy Wilson Castillo in July.
With the loss, Garcia, who fights out of the Dominican Republic, drops to (14-23, 5 KOs). Garcia, on her best day could only aspire to be a trail horse. She’s lost eight of her last ten bouts having been stopped twice in that span.
