Wembley Arena, London, UK. promising
Caroline Dubois (6-0, 5 KOs) from Britain, the younger sister of WBA World heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois, in the light weight limit (up to 61.2 kg) did not notice the resistance of a late replacement –
Ferice Mashori (10-8, 3 KOs) from Tanzania.
Lefty Dubois immediately occupied the center of the ring, holding her opponent against the ropes. She hid tightly behind the block, practically did not shoot back, but she did not miss anything weighty either.
In the 2nd round, Mashori took a knee after a protracted attack by the favorite. Dubois no longer combined, but put all her power into each thrown blow. At the beginning of the 3rd round, the referee decided to stop the one-sided beating.
Only a matter of time before she becomes a world champion.#AzimReyes #DuboisMashaury pic.twitter.com/ZweHRo0Gnh
