Peruvian boxer Kina Malpartida, remaining, matches with Brazilian rival Alana Dos Santos throughout their WBA awesome featherweight business title battle in Lima, which Malpartida won to hold their name.
Peruvians have gone crazy for all the boxer Kina Malpartida, an unlikely sports figure within this South US nation in which soccer, regardless if not played better, are king. The thing is, Malpartida are a lady but she is idolized by traditionally macho guys of Peru while there is no comparable male jock in the nation.
Malpartida, known as “Dynamite” to her followers, is the World Boxing Association’s female super featherweight champion. On June 20, she effectively defended the woman industry subject in Lima against a Brazilian challenger, Halana dos Santos. She received a packed household for fight, that was a feat of their own. The tickets are costly in a nation where month-to-month minimum-wage is around $200 in addition to venue appeared better fitted to a circus than a global title battle as vendors hawked caramel apples and pure cotton chocolate in the place of alcohol and pretzels. TV ratings, however, establish the story in immense measurements, at the very least for Peru. The Malpartida-Dos Santos fight drawn the biggest solitary TV readers in the country’s watching records. At one point, two-thirds associated with the monitoring readers got watching the fight. (See photos of females best competitors.)
