New WBC international female flyweight champion Jacky Calvo arrived at the WBC weekly press conference, fresh from her victory over Judith Rodriguez, to receive the Green and Gold Belt and to savor the moment with Mum and Dad.
Shedding a tear or two and being bolstered by generous and thunderous applause, Jacky cradled The Belt, which is the reward for years of sacrifice, hard work and dedication.
Her voice momentarily faltered as she thanked her parents who have been at her side at all times, believing in her and urging her to move forward.
Jacky also thanked the President of the WBC Mauricio Sulaimán, saying that without his support this would not have been possible. She also took some time to salute her rival Judith Rodríguez, because it takes two to hammer together a great fight.
Jacky wants to stay busy, defending her title in February as she wants to earn the right to fight for the WBC absolute belt very soon.
