The San Juan boxer, who recently lost the International Boxing Federation’s Bantamweight World Championship, will have another chance against a British woman.
On March 26, Cecilia Roman failed to defeat Ebani Bridge and lost her world title in a fight that was defined on a card with a clear panorama for which she was in charge of the venue.
The San Juan boxer gave him everything and did a very good show, which earned him the organizing agency to call him for a very interesting double fight.
On Saturday, May 21, in London, she will face Eli Scottney, a British woman who sanctified herself as the Intercontinental Champion of the World Boxing Association last February.
That evening, the 24-year-old British woman defeated Georgina Guanini of Argentina in a unanimous decision, and after recovering her headboat from Argentina, she regained full combat approval.
This is an important prospect for Cecilia but a higher division. “It’s a division over the super bantamweight (55,300 kg) which is more than I normally fight (53,500 kg bantamweight),” Santa Lucia told Boxer.
“It’s good for me to try myself in Super Bantamweight. Over time, boxers rise into the category due to the increase in muscle mass and how complicated and sacrificial it is to gain weight, ”added Cecilia.
The rival is a young fighter who has not been inexperienced since becoming the English National Champion in 2017 at the amateur level. There is no harm in his achievements in the amateur era.
