Jackie Nava, Marcela Acuna Battle To a Majority Draw

By Rafael Soto

In a fight of a high technical level, Jackie ¨The Princess Azteca¨ Nava and Marcela ¨Tigresa¨Acuna fought to a ten round majority draw over ten rounds in the baseball stadium ¨Agustin Flores Contreras¨ of Puerto Vallarta in another great function of Zanfer with the support of Code Jalisco, Comude Vallarta and Municipality of Puerto Vallarta.

The cards of the judges were 96-94 for Acuna and 95-95 x 2 a majority draw.

 The "Princesa Azteca" Nava (35-4-4, 16 KO's) in the first five rounds could not enter the distance of a quick "Tigress" Acuna (49-7-2, 20 KO's), who with her counters dominated at distance.


Nava showed her great quality and level by always forcing the fight as she looked to connect, but the speed and counterattacks of Acuna made things complicated.

The fight was very exciting and competitive, with the public supporting Jackie at all times.

Tijuana native Kenia Enríquez (22-1-0, 9 KO's) dominated from start to finish a brave Venezuelan challenger Leiryn ¨China¨ Flores (16-1-1, 13 KO's) and retained her WBC title by unanimous decision.

The cards of the judges were: 98-92, 99-91 and 100-90 all in favor of the Mexican.

Carlos ¨Chuko¨ Díaz won by unanimous decision over a brave Emanuel ¨Panigro¨ Herera in eight rounds, dominating him from start to finish.

In an exciting fight, the Sinaloa-born Melissa Esquivel (9-0-1, 3 KO's) and Nayarit Marisol Corona (12-5-3, 4 KO's) went to a draw over six intense super bantamweight rounds.

The scores on Thursday were 58-56 for Corona, 58-56 for Esquivel and another judge 59-59. 

The prospect René Miranda Jr. (10-1-1, 4 KO's) was surprised by the Nayarit Alejandro Rene Farias (11-3-1, 6 KO's) and lost by technical knockout in the sixth round.

Miranda walked away with a dangerous wound on the left eyelid and the ring doctor prevented him from continuing,  in a fight filled with a heavy exchange of blows.

If there are any boxing fans out there that haven't been sold on females in the sport, watch this bout. If the general public can see talent such as Nava and Acuna go at it, female boxing would sell itself.
