WBC super bantamweight champion Yamileth “Yeimi” Mercado, will defend her title for the second time, when she faces the undefeated American Angelica Rascón, next Saturday, June 26, at the ´Rodrigo M. Quevedo¨ in the City of Chihuahua, Mexico.
Angélica Rascón`s goal has always been to win the WBC green and gold title; and she assures that she vows victory.
“When they offered us the fight against the champion we immediately said yes. The opportunity comes to me at the best moment of my life, I have not stopped training, I am preparing in the mountains of Washington state for 8 weeks and I am sure that we are going to offer a war in the ring and I will be the new world champion,” said Rascón (10-0-0, 2 ko’s).
“I have seen Yamileth since she debuted in professional boxing, following every step she takes because I knew that one day we were going to face each other for the world championship.
“I have a lot of chances to win, Yamileth has the perfect style for me, I appreciate that Yeimi went to Kenya, Africa for a world championship, that’s very brave, and then she conquered it in the rematch. Now we go for what you have and now it is my dream and I will achieve it.”
The fight, which is promoted by Zanfer Promotions and 2M Promotions, will be broadcasted by Azteca 7.
