The defeat prevented Munoz from breaking the 115 pound record of of eleven defenses.

It was the night of Guadalupe Martinez, who saw the judges hand down cards of 95-94 and 96-93 by two.

Munoz is hoping to secure a rematch.

"It was a great fight, I ask for the rematch, it was Lupita's night and we will surely recover the title, we will get back up, we are warriors," said Munoz
