Wahlstrom Retains Title

Gatorade Center, Turku, Finland

Eva Wahlstrom (20-0-1, 3 KOs) retained the WBC super-featherweight title with a ten-round, unanimous decision (99-91/99-91/98-92) over former WBO bantamweight champion, Mayra Alejandra Gomez (18-6, 4 KOs). The victory was Wahlstrom’s third successful defense of the WBC super-featherweight title that she won in April 2015. The loss was the third unsuccessful attempt by Gomez to secure a world title since relinquishing WBO bantamweight strap three years ago. The 5’6” Wahlstrom owned a significant height advantage in this matchup and used her physical advantage by keeping Gomez at the end of punches throughout the bout.
