A career defining opportunity for Diana “Bonita” Fernández, with the avowed aim of becoming the first world boxing champion in the history of Ciudad Juarez, facing the formidable, seasoned and accomplished WBC female bantamweight champion, Mariana “Barby” Juarez
“Fighting in Ciudad Juarez contains a high degree of pressure, because the people of Juarez know their Boxing, so I cannot slip up,” she warns.
Fernandez Ortiz (20-2 and 4 KO’s) who already had a title opportunity in Argentina, now has a rare second chance. It increases the tempo of expectation. As she says:
“My family will be there plus my people, and I WILL go after MY dream to be crowned in my city as a world champion. I already conquered the Latino championship and now we go for the World.”
Having said her piece, Diana continues apace with her preparation in Mexico City, carefully and meticulously supervised by Professor Rubén Lira, where she trains alongside her sister Karina “La Bella” Fernandez and the WBC world champion, Yesenia ” Niña” Gómez.
