Duer Beat Zacarias Last Month

Carolina Duer won by unanimous decision over Silvia Fernanda Zacarias on August 12 at Escuela de Boxeo Santos Zacarías in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Duer is a former two-division world champion. The legend won her belts at super flyweight and bantamweight.

Duer-Zacarias was actually a rematch. The two, both from Argentina, met in the ring eleven years ago. Duer won a ten-round unanimous decision for the South American super bantamweight title back in 2010.

This bout was a four-rounder in the super featherweight division. Each of the three judges scored the contest for Duer, who is 43 year old, with marks of 39-37. She is now 20-6-2 with 6 KOs during her 14 year professional boxing career. This was Duer's first win since 2016, although she dropped a couple of close split decisions in world title bouts in that span.

Zacarias, a 36 year old, is 8-24-5 with one KO. She has lost her last twelve fights, mostly to very good competition. She last won in November of 2012. Zacarias has only been stopped four times, the last coming in 2014.
