Mexico City’s Zócalo opens way to boxing with world title fight

The Zócalo of Mexico City, in the historic center of this capital, will give way this Saturday to a ring with a world title fight in women’s boxing.
The fight will be starred by the Mexican Mariana Juárez, who will seek the bantamweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC) owned by Catherine Phiri, from Zambia.
Juárez, an experienced boxer, has a service record of 44 wins, 17 on the fast track, nine losses and four draws, while Phiri has just 12 wins, six before the limit, and one loss.
The experience of the Mexican, who has already been world champion, will be a factor in her favor, while Phiri’s inexperience, in her second fight outside her country, will play against her although she must assert her status as champion.
The performance will transform the Zócalo into a boxing arena that expects some 30,000 fans and will also feature a WBC youth world title fight between Mexican Eduardo “Rocky” Hernández (21-0-3) and Argentine Hugo “Dinamita »Santillán (12-1-1).
With the function, boxing joins sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball, American football, wrestling and motor racing that have been held in the Plaza Mayor de los Mexicanos, which is located a few meters from the Templo Mayor, erected in the pre-Hispanic era. EFE.
