World Boxing Council female super bantamweight champion Fatuma Zarika and her challenger, Mexican Yamileth Mercado, showed their talent, with lively workouts.
Kenyan Fatuma Zarika (32-12-2, 17 ko’s) will make the third defense of her WBC 122-pound world title, this time against “Yeimi” Mercado (14-2-0, 4 ko’s) this Saturday, at the Poliforo from Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, Chihuahua, in a historic co-promotion of Zanfer and 2M Promotions that will be televised by Azteca 7 for all of Mexico.
Both warriors offered a public training in the Main Square of Ciudad Cuauhtémoc, which was enjoyed by a throng of fans.
Yamileth Mercado will seek to become the first woman born in Chihuahua, to become a world boxing champion.
