KINA MALPARTIDA REPULSES LINDSEY SCRAGG, RETAINS WBA FEMALE SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE


PhilBoxing.com




Last Dec. 5 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California, under the Roy Englebrecht promotions, "Dynamite Explosion, Battle at the Ballroom" Peruvian Kina "Dinamita" Malpartida, successfully defended her WBA Female Super Featherweight title with a unanimous decision victory over the United Kingdom's Lindsey Scragg before a wildly cheering and flag waving crowd, mostly the champion's supporters who came all the way from Lima, Peru. WBA Judge Alejandro Rochin scored it 98-91, while CSAC Judges Ray Corona and Jonathan Davis turned in scores of 98-91 and 97-92 respectively. WBA Director Robert Mack and California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) Fight Inspector Mo Noor both supervised the championship fight.

The 29 year Malpartida, now fighting out of Lakewood, California, improved her record to 11-3-0. She had won the vacant WBA Super Featherweight crown on Feb. 21, 2009 by a 10th round TKO over Maureen Shea at the Madison Square Garden in New York and made a successful first defense last June 20, 2009 by stopping Halana Dos Santos in the 7th round in Lima, Peru. Enjoying a 5 inch height advantage, Malpartida kept her bull rushing 5'3" British challenger at bay with right straight jabs and occasional right left combos in most of the rounds. However, in the 6th round, emboldened by her success in their exchanges of punches, Malpartida pressed the action and pinned down Scragg in her corner, but as she went for the kill, she got caught by a counter left hook, and sagged on her knees for a mandatory 8 count, which was the only knockdown of the 10 rounds championship fight. For the gutsy but outgunned Lyndsey Scragg, 10-2-0, who came into the fight as the reigning Global Council Female Junior Lightweight titleholder, tonight's loss , was her second failed attempt to annex another 130 lbs. crown. In November 7, 2007, she lost to Canadian WBC Female Super Featherweight Champion Jelena Mrdjenovich by a close decision in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, but has since, rebounded with three impressive victories, including a win over Kristine Shergold to wrest the Global Council Super Featherweight crown, paving the way for her challenge at Malpartida.

In the first of two chief supports, Jose Armando Santa Cruz, 28-4-0, once a menace in the lightweight ranks, but who faded out of the radar after suffering back to back losses to David Diaz, Joel Casamayor and Antonio Pitalua, sent a message that he is back at a stab for another glory, this time in the welterweight division, with a brutal stoppage of Anthony Mora in the 3rd round. In the companion 8-rounder, Peruvian Carlos Zambrano, 126 lbs. built an early lead in the early rounds, but surprisingly decided afterwards to just ran circles around Carlos Hernandez, 128 lbs., and sparingly counter punching for the remainder of the fight, perhaps thinking of just preserving his initial advantage and in the process, disappointing the crowd in his US debut, with a majority decision win. Scores were 77-75 twice, and 76-76.

The other results:
Juan Zegarra kayoed Javier Romero in 26 seconds of the 2nd round in their junior welterweight bout. Welterweight Ricky Duenas bested Alan Sanchez by majority decision, Oscar Venegas beat Mario Gonzales by unanimous decision in their junior bantamweight tussle, and Emmanuel Castro made an auspicious debut as a Super Bantamweight with a 2nd round TKO of Danny Pantoja.
