Mexico City /
After a decade of waiting for the right moment to show off, Jackie Nava and Mariana Juarez will finally come face-to-face in a long-awaited battle that will take place in Tijuana.
The Tijuana will take on a fighter who has been her rival for years, but whose circumstances force them to land nearly identical jobs.
“I expect a strong, strong fight that people will love, and I feel the tactics will go together to deliver a good fight,” he said in an interview during the weekly meeting of the World Boxing Council.
Jackie commented that despite their age – 41 years – they still have a lot to offer in the ring and the desire to please the fans will help them deliver a high-level match.
“You have to be a very smart boxer, with a lot of pressure from both. Which brings more condition, because the experience is in both parts. The one who has the most courage, hunger and heart is the one who will win,” he added.
The match is set to take place on October 30 in Tijuana and will have a special edition of the WBC belt on the line to learn about their careers.
Nava will arrive with a 38-4-4 record with 16 knockouts. While Barbie Juarez with 55-10-4 and 19 Cos.
