Monserrat Alarcon will make the third defense of her World Boxing Association (WBA) minimum lightweight championship against Silvia Torres on Saturday at the Polyforum in Leon, Guanajuato.
The WBA 102 lbs. champion will have a nice duel against Torres in which the Mexican pride will come out for the black and gold crown of the pioneer organization.
Alarcón arrives with a great winning streak that has made her the best in the category. She has not lost a fight since 2018 and has won six straight fights in that span to make clear her good sporting momentum.
Torres, on the other hand, wants to complicate the champion’s night and has enough experience to put her in trouble. She has already been interim champion in the past and has faced several good level opponents, making her a strong challenger for Alarcón.
The city of Leon is already living the pre-fight atmosphere and this week there will be several promotional events before the fight. Alarcon comes in with a record of 16 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws, while Torres has 20 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws and 7 knockouts.
