"China" Sanchez seeking the super bantamweight interim title

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on February 17, 2014

Venezuelan Alys "La China" Sanchez will fight Mexican Jackie Nava for the interim super bantamweight crown by the World Boxing Association (WBA) next April 19 in Tijuana, Mexico, according to Gilberto Mendoza, president of the boxing organization.

Nava, known in the boxing world as the "Aztec Princess ", is one of the most famous fighters in the North American country, facing opponents of much hierarchy and proving to be a tremendous boxer.

The Mexican will have "China" Sanchez as adversary, who is holding the interim belt since 2012 when she defeated Mexican Maria Elena Villalobos, by unanimous decision, in Kingston, Jamaica.

Nava won the regular WBA super bantamweight belt in January 2012 when winning by majority decision against Chantall Martinez. Afterwards, she made two successful defenses versus Diana Ayala by points and versus Lisa Bronw by knockout in the third assault.

The Venezuelan has a dozen victories, with four knockouts, and a loss to Carolina Arias from Costa Rica, in October last year, where her belt was not on dispute.

Nava represents the greatest opponent that Sanchez has faced during her short career on the ring. The Aztec has won a good position among the best super bantamweight in the world. She is a figure of great respect, shown to be a true warrior on the boxing ring.

Besides being a regular queen of the WBA super bantamweight, she has also worn the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt.

Nava shows a record of 28 wins, twelve of them by knockout, with four defeats and three draws.
