Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) Noemi “La Rebelde” Bosques looks to rebound after two very tough loses, when she tangles against Marisol “La Chihuahua” Miranda for the vacant WIBA International super flyweight title Saturday at the Trade Winds Resort in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
The two met back in 2014 and that contest ended in a draw after four rounds. For this eight-round title affair, each round will consist of two minutes, which is standard in women’s boxing. However, some reports had the bout being three-minute rounds, but that is not accurate.
“Last time I played with her and was robbed of my win,” Bosques said to JMB on Tuesday. “This time I will destroy her.”
Bosques (8-3-2, 2ko’s) has dropped back-to-back contests for the first time in her career. She lost a very tough split-decision to Heather “The Heat” Hardy back in May. Hardy was the bigger opponent in the bout and it was no surprise to see Bosques drop down to face Miranda at 115lbs.
Prior to the Hardy loss, Bosques dropped a six-round split-decision over Nydia Feliciano in a very feisty contest back in March. Feliciano, who fights out of the Bronx, New York, was simply more active then Bosques and hurt her a couple of times with cleaner shots.
The 41-year-old southpaw Miranda (5-8-1, 1ko) has dropped four out of her last five contests, including a seventh-round TKO loss to Yesica Yolanda Bopp for the WBO light flyweight title in 2012.
