Mexican Ibeth "Roca" Zamora who's poised to this put her WBC Lt. Flyweight title on the line against dangerous Ava Knight, has earned her crown the hard way!
Roca aged 24, was born in San Cristóbal Huichochitán, Mexico and fashioned a very successful amateur career.
She has travelled the world looking for the glory. Undaunted, she went to Montevideo in Uruguay, to face undefeated Argentine Yesica Bopp. She put on a great fight losing a UD but earning respect, plaudits and the chance to fight for a world title against Ana Fernandez from Venezuela.
Ibeth has conquered WBC straw and Lt. flyweight youth titles as well as the absolute world title, which she won against Japan's Naoko Shibata in Japan just few days after her older sister passed away.
Roca currently trains with the guidance and supervision of her uncle Cruz Zamora, who's a key ingredient in her success.Tags: Ava Knight
