Mariana Juarez Defeats Japanís Nuki to Retain Bantamweight Belt

MEXICO CITY Ė Mexican Mariana Juarez retained on Saturday her World Bantamweight Championship of the World Boxing Council by defeating Japanís Terumi Nuki in the Arena Mexico stadium.

The 38-year-old champion achieved the 50th victory of her professional career as she completed her fifth successful defense in the 53.52 kilogram division.

Juarez (50-9-4, 18 KOs) for the second time in her career beat Nuki (10-4-0, 7 KOs), after the fight in July last year.

The 29-year-old challenger was looking for the rematch and from the first round gave her everything against Juarez.

In the third round, Juarez changed her strategy and began throwing punches with more aggressiveness, a situation that brought the audience to their feet in encouragement.

The 118-pound champion managed to survive Nukiís throws thanks to extensive training in the gym.

With a conservative plan, Juarez went ahead until the seventh of 10 rounds when the match result was unanimously agreed upon.

The world champion suffered a cut in the head in the 10th round and with a bloodied face endured the final onslaught of her opponent.

Judges marked 98-91, 98-91 and 97-92 in favor of Juarez.

With this result opens the possibility for Mariana Juarez to face off against fellow Mexican Jackie Nava, who also had a successful bout Saturday.
