In a WBC/WBA female light flyweight world title unification, WBA champion Jessica Nery Plata (29-2, 3 KOs) hammered out a close, but unanimous decision to take the WBC belt from previously unbeaten Kim Clavel (16-1, 3 KOs) on Friday night at Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada. After ten spirited rounds, Plata was declared a 97-93, 97-93, 96-94 winner.

Unbeaten super lightweight Mazlum Akdeniz (18-0, 8 KOs) successfully defended his WBC Continental Americas belt with a ten round unanimous decision against Cristian Bielma (19-5-2, 7 KOs) in a 10-rounder. Akdeniz dropped Bielma in rounds three, five, and seven en route to a 100-87 3x verdict.

World-rated female welterweight “MPH” Marie Pier Houle (8-0-1, 2 KOs) got a hometown decision against Marisol Moreno (6-4, 0 KOs) in an eight-rounder. Moreno outworked MPH, but the 77-75, 79-73, 80-72 scores reflected some other fight.

Middleweight Derek Pomerleau (4-0, 2 KOs) outpointed Gustavo Magana Rodriguez (3-2-1, 1 KO) over six 60-54 3x.

2020 female Olympian featherweight Caroline Veyre (2-0, 0 KOs) topped Estefania Gonzalez Franco (3-6, 0 KOs) in a six-rounder. 60-54 3x.

Lightweight Eric Basran (3-0, 1 KO) took a one-sided six round unanimous decision over Juan Carlos Ramirez Garcia (4-3, 0 KOs). Scores were 60-53, 60-54, 60-54.

  • That is a great win for Plata, going on the road and winning a unification like that. Estrada’s busy with Rupprecht and Yoka Valle is probably waiting on the winner, but there’re some decent contenders at the weight while she waits to see who comes back up. Maybe Bermudez next?
