WBC world bantamweight champion Mariana “Barby” Juarez was one of the guests of honor at the “Coffee Crème Tuesday,” where she spoke about the upcoming defense of her crown this coming October 31st in sun kissed Cancun, against dangerous and ambitious rival, Yulihan Alejandra Luna Avila.
For the seasoned and versatile bantamweight champion, it is imperative to convincingly defend her crown against a quality rival, who will really demand the very best of herself, as after so many months of inactivity, the public deserves to have an exciting fight, with an absolute guarantee of a great show, just in a similar fashion to Juan Francisco Estrada and Carlos Cuadras, whom she warmly congratulated for an outstanding contest.
Mariana, stated she`s really looking forward to finally getting back into the ring, despite the pandemic. She has not stopped training and above all, she`s taken significant care of her strict diet, which she`s combined with a convincingly strong preparation. Mariana is confident that her experience, high boxing IQ and her ever vigilant physical preparation, will give her the all important edge of advantage.
Looking forward to 2021, Mariana is absolutely determined to press ahead with the hitherto postponed classic against Jackie Nava that was scheduled for May, but also to make history by becoming the new super bantamweight champion, a crown that is currently in the very capable hands of Yamileth Mercado.
