(NOV 2) RAYNE, LA - WBAN
received a press release earlier today, and in the release they
said that just two days after Halloween, unbeaten female
sensation, lightweight Selina "Aztec Queen" Barrios (2-0, 1 KO),
has spooked her opponent, Zarina Tsoloyeva (Pro Debut) from
Zhaksy, Kazakhstan, as she backed out of their scheduled 4-round
bout, set to take place today at The Rayne Civic Center in
Louisiana. Tsoloyeva refused to step on the scale at yesterdays
According to the press release, Barrios has had not only
Tsoloyeva back out but also prior to today's fight, Ebony
Jones from Alabama, and Alpha Patricia Lopez from Mexico.
They were all signed to fight Selina but backed out to fight her
at the last minute. Jones and Lopez were no shows, while
Tsoloyeva who is from the distant land of Kazakhstan, showed up
to the weigh-in, but declined to step on the scale.
"I was willing to fight Zarina Tsoloyeva, the decorated amateur
from Kazakhstan, but she pulled out at the last minute, like my
last two opponents." said Selina Barrios from San Antonio. "It's
been very difficult getting opponents to fight me. I've always
said, I don't care who they put in front of me, I'll fight
anyone. I have that much confidence in my skills. I have no
choice but to move on, but I'm respectfully sending a message to
everyone in the lightweight and super-lightweight divisions, I'm
not going anywhere, eventually you will all have to fight me."
Nothing will derail Selina as she stays positive and continues
to work hard, looking for that opportunity to challenge the best
the lightweight and super-lightweight divisions has to offer.
Selina's handlers must now move her to six and eight round bouts
right away, to chip away and get to a championship fight as she
gains more ring experience as a professional.
"Looking at all the top lightweights and super-lightweights, I
predict Selina will fight for a world championship before her
tenth fight," said advisor Kerry Daigle. "Possibly by fight
number seven or eight. We're going to move her into six and
eight rounders moving forward. I'm already in talks with the
sanctioning bodies to get her ranked."
"If no one wants to fight me, then I'm calling out all the name
fighters in the division," Selina Barrios continued. "Amanda
Serrano, Mikaela Mayer, Jessica McCaskill and of course, Katie
Taylor, I'm willing to fight you guys anytime, anywhere. Like I
said, at some point, you will all have to fight me."
