They are Yenifer Ávila and Ana Montemagio, who benefited from the non-presentation of their rivals and qualified directly for the finals of their categories, which will be played on August 12 in Tucumán.

Yenifer Ávila and Ana Montemagio from Rioja advanced to the final of the NOA Regional Women’s Boxing Tournament in the Senior category, which takes place in Tucumán, although they did not even have to get into the ring.

Within the framework of the category up to 51 kilograms, Yenifer Ávila advanced due to the non-presentation of Fernanda Ríos from Salta and therefore entered the final of the contest, where on Friday, August 12, she will face Marcela Acuña from Santiago.

On the other hand, Ana Montemagio qualified for the final of the category up to 54 kilograms, since her semifinal rival, María Fabián from Salta, could not pass the weigh-in. In this way, the Riojan woman will also enter the ring on Friday the 12th, to face off in the fight for the title against Rocío Cruz from Jujuy or Luján Martínez from Santiago, who met in the other semis.

The third Rioja in the Regional was Johana Rodriguez (up to 60 kg category) who for personal reasons could not travel to Tucumán and therefore was eliminated from the competition.
