St. Petersburg, Florida’s Noemi Bosques is set for her first taste of Championship action, this coming Saturday, when she challenges Pueblo, Colorado’s Chantel Cordova for the vacant World Boxing Union (WBU) Super Flyweight Championship, at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
Bosques, whose record stands at 7-1-2 with two stoppage victories, including an excellent third round TKO victory over Belgium’s Yolaine Lin De Lauf back in August, will surely be facing the toughest challenge of her career when she takes on twenty-fight veteran and current NABF Super Flyweight Champion Cordova.
Earlier today World Boxing Union President, Don Lewis, spoke briefly about the looming title clash.
“This could well be one of the best female title clashes of the year, both Noemi and Chantel are talented, all action fighters.
On paper many will see Chantel as the odds on favorite, not only has she fought twice as many times in her career as Noemi, but she is also Championship experienced.
She beat the highly rated Patricia Alcivar to secure the NABF title in July and then went on to retain her crown against Gloria Salas in October.
In her career she has fought the likes of Hollie Dunaway, twice, and World #2 Arely Mucino, so really is one seriously tough cookie.
Whilst Noemi may be less experienced, she really made a statement back in August, when she conclusively beat Belgium’s highly rated Yolaine Lin De Lauf.
When I say conclusively I mean it, she had the Belgium girl on the canvas twice before stopping her in the third round.
She then went on dominate and beat Ivana Coleman in a six rounder in October, so she is more than ready for this fight.
Congratulations to Promoter Jerry Reyes, he has put together some great fights to support the World Boxing Union Championship main event, the likes of Charles Whittaker, Joseph Fernandez, Jose Resendez, Ruben Azuma, Alex Roman, Moises Carrasquillo Jr. and former amateur star Hector Luis Colon, who is set to make his professional debut.
I wish all the fighters taking part in tomorrows show, especially Noemi and Chantel, the best for tomorrow night.
Who do I think will win the WBU title fight? Well it’s a hard one to call for sure, but I do know one thing, whoever emerges victorious from this battle will definitely have earned their victory laurels.”
