Duer to Fight Juarez for a Strap

Carolina Duer returns to the ring after fourteenth months to face Mariana Juarez on October 12 at the Convention Center in Fresnillo, Mexico. The bout is for an alphabet bantamweight title.

Duer (19-5-1, 6 KOs) is a 41 year old from Buenos Aires. This will be her first time fighting outside of her native Argentina as a professional boxer. She's held world championship belts at two different weight classes and was on an 18-fight undefeated streak before losing two split decisions to Maria Cecilia Roman. Duer has only fought once a year recently, so her last victory was over three years ago.

Juarez (53-9-4, 18 KOs) resides in Mexico City and possesses some advantages over Duer. She's two years younger and has won world title belts from Flyweight up through bantamweight. Nicknamed Barby, Juarez has much more experience. She has almost as many knockouts as Duer has wins and Juarez isn't noted for her power. She fought fewer than four months ago and has battled four opponents since Duer's last fight, all unanimous decision victories.

Experience can be looked at another way, however. Juarez has 495 rounds in the ring while Duer has only 167. Juarez has been stopped three times while Duer has never been stopped. So Duer has a lot less mileage and, though she's experienced her share of tough battles, Carolina has received less damage in the ring.

The fight is scheduled for ten two-minute rounds.
