(APR 13) Earlier today WBAN
received a press release on an upcoming title fight that will
feature Peru's boxing star Kina Malpartida in a WBA Super
Featherweight World title bout on May 19th. The bout will
take place in conjunction with the WBA KO Drugs campaign, at the
Miguel Grau Coliseum in the El Callao region of Peru.
Instead of telling who Kina IS fighting on that date, I will
list for you who she is NOT fighting. There are FORTY-TWO
female boxers ranked HIGHER than Kina's opponent.
This is who she is NOT fighting in the world rankings of
super featherweights according to Boxrec's ratings:
Malpartida is rated, 4.
7. Eva Wahlstrom, 8. Jennifer Han, 9.
Ronica Jeffrey, 10. Julie Robert, 11. Marina
Krasheninnikova, 12. Fatuma Zarika, 13. Carla
Torres, 14. Maria Eugenia Quiroga, 15. Myriam
Dellal, 16. Lissette Medel, 17. Nohime Dennisson,
18. Silvia Fernanda Zacarias, 19. Diana Garcia,
20. Areti Mastrodouka, 21. Cynthia Munoz, 22.
Melissa St. Vil, 23. Kristine Shergold, 24. Lucia
Larcinese, 25. Migdalia Asprilla, 26. Agota Ilko,
27. Judy Waguthii, 28. Milena Koleva, 29.
Yoseidy Zarzuela, 30. Bronwyn Wylie, 31. Evette
33. Zsofia Bedo, 34. Nacera Baghdad, 35.
36. Maria Eugenia Lopez, 37. Paola Ibarra, 38.
39. Valeria Jacqueline Castillo, 40. Marison Reyes,
41. Kristen Treadway, and 42. Lizbeth Crespo.
Kina's opponent: Sriphrae Nongkipahuyuth rated 43.
The point: The above-mentioned boxers are just samples of
who she could have fought---not mentioning other boxers that
could have taken a couple of pounds on or off to fight for the title that are ranked much higher
in the sport....
If this is not convincing enough as to why 19-year old
Nongkipahuyuth should have probably not been offered this fight,
just check out her boxing record.
According to Boxrec....
Nongkipahuyuth has fought NINE pro debuters out of her ELEVEN
wins. She has never fought 10 rounds, and she was stopped by
Diane Prazak in 2011. Nongkipahuyuth's last fight was with
a pro debuter. Honestly folks...is that an opponent ready
to fight for a world title? [Her
Need WBAN say more? Probably not.
