Ana Julaton 122 lbs, Yessica Marcos 120.8 lbs for Tomorrow's WBO Super Bantamweight World Title in Argentina (Video)


PhilBoxing.com




Wearing a beautiful light blue bikini, the WBO regular super bantamweight champion Phil-Am Ana Julaton weighed-in 122 lbs (55,300Kg), while her opponent WBO interim super bantamweight queen Argentina's Yessica Patricia Marcos of Argentina registered 120.8 lbs (54,800 kg) ahead of their WBO unification clash of tomorrow Friday March 16 at the Amphitheater Juan Pablo II in Ciudad San Mart?n in Mendoza, Argentina.

After the weights, both girls faced off for the cameras, Julaton looking taller than Marcos. Nevertheless, both fighters appeared relaxed and in good shape during the official weight-in ceremony at el Paseo de la Patria.

After the weight-in, Marcos said "I respect Ana because she a champion, but I have confidence on me. I have had a good training camp and I am going to win tomorrow."

The gorgeous Pinay Ana Julaton, 31, had her last fight in September, in which the Filipina defended her WBO super bantamweight crown by a unanimous decision win over Jessica Villafranca in Yucat?n, Mexico.

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old undefeated Yessica Marcos (18-0-1, 6KOs), known as the "Assassin Bonbon," comes from a fifth round technical KO victory over then WBA interim champ Simone Da Silva of Brazil last October in Mendoza.

Trainers for Ana "The Hurracaine" Julaton and Yessica Marcos have expressed confidence on the work done.

Martin Diaz, Yessica's trainer, has said that her pupil is ready to become the regular champion:

"The last three weeks we had more than 50 rounds of sparring sessions. The last of them went for 11 rounds with a variety of intense sparring partners, in which Yessica came to throw many good punches. The good training has satisfied me, anyways, fights are fights," said the trainer.

In contrast, the Julaton Team has not allowed media access to her training. However, Angelo Reyes, Ana Julaton's trainer commented:

"We know how Yessica Marcos's boxing is, so have trained hard. We are ready."

The neutral WBO fight officials are from Puerto Rico and Panama:

Referee of the combat will be the experienced Roberto Ramirez Sr of Puerto Rico, who was the third man in the Orlando Salido thrilling victory over Juanma Lopez last Saturday.

One of the judges will be Cesar Ramos of Puerto Rico, another official at the Salido vs Lopez fight. Amazingly, Cesar Ramos's had in his scorecard that his fellow Puerto Rican Juanma Lopez was winning by two points, 86-84.

The other two judges are: Jose Roberto Torres of Puerto Rico and Ignacio Robles of Panama.

The WBO supervisor is Rolando Marcos Hermoso of Panama.

Yessica Marcos and Ana Julaton will climb the ring at 22:00 hours Argentina time as the fight will be broadcast live on TyC Sports.

This WBO title fight is organized by veteran Argentina promoter Osvaldo Rivero.

Osvaldo Rivero was the promoter of the fateful fight card in which Filipino Johnrieil Casimero knocked out Argentina's Luis "El Mosquito" Lazarte to become new interim IBF interim light flyweight champion.
