Looking to follow up the biggest win of her career over Alesia Graf in March, WBC Super Flyweight World Champion Zulina “La Loba” Munoz will continue to make her case as one of the top female fighters in the sport today on Saturday, June 28, when she defends her belt against Budapest’s Renata Domsodi in a 10-round main event to be broadcast live on Televisa and FOX Deportes from the Centro de Espectaculos in Epazoyucan, Hidalgo, Mexico.
In the co-main event, it’s another world championship showdown when Guadalajara’s Oswaldo “El Gallito” Novoa puts his WBC Minimumweight Title on the line against Managua’s Alcides “Casco” Martinez.
“Casta De Campeones” is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona. Doors open at 5 p.m. CT and the first fight begins at 6 p.m. CT. The Televisa broadcast begins at 11:00 p.m. CT. The FOX Deportes broadcast begins at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
One of the best fighters the women’s side of the sport has to offer, Chicoloapan’s Zulina “La Loba” Munoz (41-1-1, 26 KOs) is a true fighting champion, having successfully defended her title five times since defeating Maribel Ramirez for the belt in November of 2012. The 26-year-old’s most important victory came in March of this year though, when she defeated the only fighter to beat her, Alesia Graf. Now with that chapter closed, she moves on to even more challenges, starting with Domsodi.
A world champion herself at 118 pounds, Budapest, Hungary’s Renata Domsodi (12-4, 5 KOs) is a fierce competitor willing to do whatever it takes to win another world title belt, even if it means going into Munoz’ backyard this weekend. Fresh from an eight-round win over previously unbeaten Alexandra Vlajk in March, the 35-year-old Domsodi is well-prepared to challenge “La Loba.”
Guadalajara’s Oswaldo “El Gallito” Novoa (13-4-1, 8 KOs) is one of Mexico’s most inspiring boxers, as he bounced back from a 1-4 stretch in 2011-12 that had many questioning what his future was in the sport. But since then he has won six straight, four by knockout, capping off his comeback with a fifth round stoppage of Xiong Zhao Zhong that earned him the WBC Minimumweight Title that he will defend tonight.
Aiming to stop this fistic Cinderella story is Managua, Nicaragua’s Alcides “Casco” Martinez (12-2, 6 KOs) a 22-year-old with championship dreams in his head and the firepower in his fists to make them come true. Unbeaten in five straight, with wins over Guillermo Ortiz, Angel Garcia, and Giovany Rayo, Martinez is confident that he has what it takes to leave Mexico with the title belt around his waist.
