Rivas faces Mazerolle for WBC title

T&T’s Loris­sa Ri­vas will con­test for the WBC heavy­weight world ti­tle fight at Cen­tral Re­gion­al In­door Sports Are­na, Ch­agua­nas on Sep­tem­ber 28. The lo­cal box­er will face off against a for­mi­da­ble op­po­nent in An­nie Maze­rolle.

This is the first time in the his­to­ry of this coun­try that a WBC heavy­weight ti­tle fight (men’s or women’s) will be con­test­ed for on home soil.

Box­ing pro­mot­er Boxu Potts said: “We have no doubt she will be able to beat this op­po­nent, she’s, big­ger, she’s stronger, she’s faster, she’s much bet­ter and she is be­ing trained by the same peo­ple that have trained Floyd May­weath­er, so she will not be in short sup­ply of tech­nique.

“That be­ing said we are look­ing a bit fur­ther down the road, should she win this ti­tle, we would be en­gag­ing Claris­sa Shields for the undis­put­ed WBC su­per-mid­dleweight ti­tle of the world.”

Al­so on the card, will be Price-Lee Isidore, who will be con­test­ing Em­manuel Her­rera of Mex­i­co for the RBO In­ter­na­tion­al Light­weight Ti­tle. The un­der­card is as fol­lows: Yu­ray Cis­nero Pre­cal vs Aaron Williams, Kevon Di­az vs Leon Dover, Joel McRea vs Nigel Ed­wards, Ker­ston Man­swell vs Elvis de Je­sus Gar­cia
