Stefi Cohen Makes Weight

Dr. Stefi Cohen made the 118 pound bantamweight limit for her fight against Karla Valenzuela tomorrow at the Miami Airport Convention Center in Miami, Florida, United States. Cohen weighed in at 117.8 pounds, the lightest of her career by nearly six pounds.

Cohen weighed 124 pounds last week and looked in terrific fighting shape. She amazingly managed to make the bantamweight limit without chopping off an arm, a testament to her professionalism.

The promoter's live Facebook feed cut out during the announcement of Valenzuela's weight, which is never a good sign. Her weight has not been reported as of this writing.

Cohen is 1-0-1 with one KO. Valenzuela is 3-25-3 with one KO. This bout is scheduled for four two-minute rounds. The night's action will be shown as a pay-per-view on Fite.TV in the U.S.  Here is The JBB's preview of the Cohen-Valenzuela fight.
