Duer to Defend Title on Friday

Carolina Duer, the WBO bantamweight champion, is slated to defend her title against Estrella Valverde on Friday at Polideportivo Municipal La Patriada in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Duer is coming off a decision victory over Mayra Alejandra Gomez in July.

Duer (15-3-1, 5 KOs) is 13-0-1 in her last 14 fights, all of which have taken place in her home country of Argentina. This is her first defense of the WBO bantamweight crown.

Valverde (7-3-1, 1 KO) is from Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl Mexico. She won her last fight, but the three before that were less successful. All three were against undefeated fighters and Valverde came away with two losses and one draw.

Duer and Valverde have a common opponent. Duer fought to a draw against Sabrina Maribel Perez by unanimous decision in May while Valverde lost by unanimous decision to Perez in May of 2012.

The title bout is scheduled for ten two-minute rounds.
