Hernandez vs. Acuna

Acuna vs Hernandez 7/13/13


Tucuman, Argentina On Saturday, July 13, 2013. A title fight for the interim featherweight World Boxing Organization (WBO), between Miami based boricua, six time world champion, fighting out of Angelo Dundee’s 5th Street Gym, Melissa "Hurcan" Hernánez (18-4-3, 6) and Marcela "La Tigresa" Acuna (38-6-1, 17) is scheduled to go 10 rounds. The winner of the fight will be the mandatory challenger for Alejandra Oliveras.


"This audience will bear witness to the rough battle of veteran champions".
Says Hernandez’s trainer, Matt Baiamonte owner of Angelo Dundee’s 5th St. Gym.

Hernandez, comes in to this bout on the back of a controversial technical decision loss to Jelena Mrdjenovich back in May in Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada.
   
In her way, is the legendary Acuna, a fighter who has faced a genuine who’s who in the fight game. In fact Acuna’s first 2 bouts saw her facing a loss in 1997 against Christy Martin and again 1998 against Lucia Rijker, where Rijker KO’d Acuna in the 5th round.

One of the great things about these two women in particular is that they aren’t afraid of competition. Yes, they have faced the best of the best and continue to rise to the top.
Argentina Acuna vs Hernandez 7/13/13   
Hernandez is a true road-warrior, she is a fighting machine with a fantastic heart and highly rated skills. She was recently ranked #2 pound for pound in the world by Ring Magazine, with Cecilia Braekhus being ranked #1 pound for pound.
With both women in terms of skills, we are expecting a highly competitive and thoroughly engaging bout from the opening round. It’s not everyday that boxing fans would say this bout is the best fight in the sport this coming weekend. With several major world title bouts taking place around the globe.
 
Fighting in her own backyard, it’s hard to go against Acuna in this bout. The only thing we know for sure is that she’ll have to go through the fire and heat that Hernandez brings if she wishes to record her 39th victory.
