Duer's Next Defense

Carolina Raquel Duer is posed to make her sixth defense of the WBO super flyweight title. This time, she will face Marisa Johanna Portillo at Tecnópolis in Buenos Aires, Argentina on October 26. This will mark Duer's fifth straight fight in her hometown of Buenos Aires.

Duer (12-3, 5 KOs), nicknamed La Turca and La Colorada, has ten consecutive wins and five knockouts in a row. Her last fight was a fifth round KO of Carina Corlescu (video) on July 6. Duer is ten years older than Portillo, who is also from Argentina.

Portillo (12-5-2, two KOs) lost her lone attempt at a world title in October of 2011 by unanimous decision. She was dominated by Ana Maria Torres in her attempted to pry away the WBC's version of the super flyweight belt. Portillo, nicknamed La Nena and La Piba, has a couple of wins against nondescript co-nationalists since that loss.

The bout between Duer and Portillo is scheduled for ten two-minute rounds.
