Promise of a very good boxing show tonight with the evening between Laura Griffa and Marcela Acuña, in the long-awaited rematch by the trenquelauco. “La Joya” and “La Tigresa” meet again above the ring and it will be at the Club Ferro Carril Midland.

For Acuña, it will be a return to the ring after 10 months of inactivity. The fight is promoted by boxing de Primera and will be broadcast by TyC Sports.

In 2018, both were the protagonists of the women’s fight of the year for the International Boxing Federation (IBF), where Acuña dominated the result of the fight by points.

How do they get there

Also known as “La Tigresa”, Acuña is the first Argentine to obtain a license as a professional boxer. She and she will return to the ring after being defeated by Débora Dionicius.

For his part, Griffa has five consecutive losses, and will try to turn things around in this fight. He remains in the hunt for a world title and Acuña is an opportunity he cannot pass up. It will be her second meeting in the ring, so far in 2022, after she fell, by points, against Mariana Soledad Ramírez, who retained the South American belt.

The evening

The main fight of the night will star Celeste Alaniz, who will make her first defense of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) title at flyweight, when she faces Venezuelan Débora Rengifo.

In addition, Alan Chaves will have Carlos Santana as his opponent, in super lightweight. Maximiliano Chaparro, son of Marcela Acuña, will clash gloves with Sergio Damián Ponce, in a 4-round battle in the super welterweight division. The rest of the billboard is made up of Dante Ariel Arce and Zoilo Zurueta who will get into the ring in a four-episode duel. Meanwhile, Matías Hernán Zavalla will make his professional debut.
