Two female world title fights took place Saturday night at the Palacio Penarol in Montevideo, Uruguay.
WBA female light flyweight world champion Yessica “La Tuti” Bopp (32-1, 13 KOs) retained her world title with a shutout ten round unanimous decision over veteran Olga Julio (25-17-2, 18 KOs). It was Bopp’s third defense of the title in her second reign. She previously defended the belt 14 times before moving up in weight.
In a clash for the vacant IBF female jr middleweight title, Chris Namus (23-4, 8 KOs) outpointed Yamila Esther Reynoso (8-2-3, 7 KOs) over ten to claim her first world title after coming up short in four previous attempts.
