Duer to Quickly Return to the Ring

Carolina Duer is scheduled to fight in a tune-up bout fewer than two months after her loss to Mariana Juarez in a grueling affair. Duer's opponent is slated to be Marianela Ramirez, and the match will take place tomorrow at Estadio Polideportivo in Villa de Mayo, Argentina, just outside Buenos Aires.

Duer (19-6-1, 6 KOs) has lost her last three fights, all in title bouts. Duer lost via split decision to Maria Cecilia Roman in 2017 and suffered the same fate in the rematch one year later. On October 12 this year, Duer lost by unanimous decision to Mariana Juarez in a rough fight in Juarez's hometown.

Ramirez, a 25 year old from Argentina, is 6-6 with one KO. She does have a few advantages however. She is 16 years younger than Duer and is the naturally bigger fighter. Duer has only weighed in as much as 122 pounds once while Ramriez has weighed in at 126 twice. Ramirez has also been far more active; she's had 11 fights since Duer's first loss to Roman.

This bout is scheduled to take place at super bantamweight and for ten rounds.
