Not a History First: Setting the Record Straight
by Sue TL Fox
May 7, 2017
     
   
   

(MAY 7)  WBAN received a Press Release from Golden Boy Promotions, with Marlen Esparza stating the following:  "It's great to make history being the first woman in Nevada to do three-minute rounds....." Apparently Esparza is not aware that she is far from the first.

The four-rounder took place last night at the T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Marlen Esparza and Samantha Salazar fought on the undercard with Esparza winning by a unanimous decision. 

I am baffled that in two separate press releases from Golden Boy Promotions the same claim was quoted before the Esparza-Salazar fight, and now after they reported the results.   This was NOT a History First---Just to set the record straight.

One great example is six-time world champion Layla McCarter who fought three-minute rounds in the State of Nevada previously.  To check out further it is documented on BoxRec, and WBAN....

Summary of Press Release/Golden Boy Promotions:

"In a quick turnaround from her March debut, 2012 Bronze Medalist Marlen Esparza (2-0) of Houston, Texas shut out Samantha Salazar (2-4-1) of Dallas, Texas over four rounds, earning the 40-36 unanimous victory on all three scorecards. The flyweight battle featured the debut of three-minute rounds in women's boxing in the state of Nevada."

"It's great to make history being the first woman in Nevada to do three-minute rounds," Esparza said. "I know it's been done elsewhere-but tonight it feels really special doing it in this fight. I plan on staying at three minutes and not going back to two minutes, so I know we will need to be strategic about how I train and fight.
"
