Coach Erica Farias was unable to enter the United States for Saturday’s title fight
Venezuelan coach Rafael Lindo, Erica Farias’ coach, was unable to enter the United States due to a visa problem, so he will face Argentine-American boxer Michaela Mayer next Saturday, for the WBO super featherweight title, with the absence of weight.
Farías, the former lightweight and ultra-lightweight world champion, will have in his corner Doctor Walter Quintero and mixed martial arts expulsion Jorge “Acero” Cali, although Chino Maidana Promotions, the company that runs Farías, mentioned the possibility of adding Santa Fe coach Pedro Nim , based in the United States, as published by the specialized website A la Vera del Ring.
Boxer Buenos Aires. 36 years old, with 26 wins and 4 defeats. He hasn’t fought since October 2019, when he lost a unanimous decision against North American Jessica McCaskill, although he has been training for several months with the national team that will feature in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
Mayer, 30, a former Rio 2016 Olympian with 14 wins (5 KOs) without draws or defeats, fought for the last time on October 31, 2020, when she widely defeated Poland’s Iwa Prodnica with her decision. The belt will be shown for the first time next Saturday in Las Vegas.
On the same card, unbeaten Japan’s Naoya Inoue, by knockout Omar Narvaez, will reveal his WBA and IBF Bantamweight titles to Filipino Michael Desmarinas. (Tillam)
