Bouvier Fights Rojas For WBF Title In Uruguay

Gabriela Bouvier will fight Argentina´s Agustina Marisa Belen Rojas for the Interim World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Featherweight title on December 9 in Punta Del Este, Uruguay.

Bouvier, 18-12-1 (4), is a former IBF world Flyweight champion, and challenged for the WBF world Super Bantamweight title in 2018 when she lost a decision to Segolene Lefebvre in France.

The 32-year-old, nicknamed “La Gaby”, is coming off three victories, including a split decision over former WBO world champion Carolina Raquel Duer last April and a stoppage of former WBF world champion Isabel Millan in August.

The local woman will be the favourite against “La Amazona” Rojas, 8-5 (0), who has faced some of the best in the world but so far come up short every time.

In May of this year she lost on points to Licia Boudersa for the WBF world Super Featherweight title, and six months later she was out-pointed by former WBF world champion Delfine Persoon.

But she has always made a good account of herself, and at twenty-five she is the younger and fresher fighter, hungry to spring an upset against the accomplished veteran.
