Jackie Nava vs. Mariana Juárez
WBC President Mauricio Sulaimán announced the mega fight between legends Jackie Nava and Mariana Juárez will be in October.
These women’s boxing pioneers, stated that have both been awaiting this moment, for years, and at last… it will determine who is the best fighter!
Before all of this the WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman surprised them, by unveiling the belt that they will be contesting for, a beautiful Diamond belt in pink, since the fight will be held during the month of the global battle against breast cancer.
For Jackie, -who was the first WBC woman champion, the confirmation of this vintage contest was joyful, because she remembered when the official announcement of the fight had been made at that press conference held in Coyoacán. A fight which then had to be postponed, as it was in that same fateful month that the Covid-19 pandemic started in Mexico.
For Jackie, facing Mariana represents an exacting, enticing challenge, because she knows her quality, but especially the warrior heart she has when she steps into the ring. Jackie clarified that this fight comes at the best moment for both, because 20 years ago they were not fighting at the same weight. Furthermore, they’ve built up tons of experience.
On how to defeat Mariana, Jackie says the most important factor will be the strategy, so her team will study the skills, but also the weaknesses of her rival.
Without predicting how the fight will end, Nava was clear in saying that this will undoubtedly be the finest women’s fight that the public can see in many years, and that it will set a precedent for everyone.
Mariana Juárez stresses that being able to get into the ring again and facing one of the pioneers of women’s boxing is a great motivation for her. Once and for all it will conclusively prove who`s the very best.
Two all time greats facing each other for the honor and glory, showing that age is just a number, because despite the years in the ring, both are still in tip top shape.
Mariana commented that the result of the fight will depend on the previous gym work, since she considers that this is where the battles are won. She clarified that she has never stopped training and that she remains fighting fit.
Mariana is thrilled to being fighting for a special belt. Commemorating the month of cancer awareness is very special to her, for as we all know her mother passed due to cancer, so this belt is an extra motivation.
The President of the WBC, expressed admiration and pride that he feels for both boxers, as he recognized them as part of the Green and Gold Family tradition, reminding them that the WBC is and will always be their place.
