Peruvian boxer Linda Lecca, world super flyweight champion of the World Association of Boxing (WBA) from 2014 to 2018, announced this Monday that from this year he will fight in the bantamweight category.
Lecca, 30, explained in a statement that “changing categories is normal in the boxing“Well, your build keeps changing,” so that you will now step into the ring with a weight of up to 118 pounds (53.5 kilos) instead of up to 115 pounds (52.1 kilos) as before.
That’s why I resolved this change for my next fight. I gave my all in the super flyweight category, I won a world title in the WBA and I kept my crown for four years. Now we are going with everything to achieve a second title in a different category, which is the ‘Gallo’, “said Lecca.
The boxer, nicknamed ‘Triple L’ and ‘Princesa Inca, assured that she has offers to fight in Lima, in her native Trujillo and abroad.
“My career is on the upward plane, I feel much better and they will have news soon. There is Linda Lecca for a while and I will bring more joy to my country, “said Lecca.
Lecca’s last fight was last September in Germany against the Teutonic boxer Raja Amasheh, who managed to keep the super flyweight title of the World Organization of Boxing (OMB). EFE / Photo by @Multi-impact
