Where she was dominating from start to finish in each of the rounds.

During her visit to the program “El Matutino”, the “Pumita” assured that she felt the adrenaline before crossing gloves, “I had not competed for almost two years and above with several changes in my technical team.

That leads her to project a start to 2022 with fights on the horizon, “the objective is to be able to start the year competing, if it is not January it will be February, these are the dates that I was talking with the promoter, with a view to competing for a title that enabled me to be ranked among the top 5 in the country to go in search of a world title. ” Also, she thanked the support and accompaniment of Luis Tarifa, the teacher Emilia Ortiz in the physical part, Alejandro Bacán and her partner who assist her in the corner.
