Guadalupe Bautista will travel to Canada to defend her World Boxing Association junior flyweight title on April 27 against local Sara Haghighat Joo. The about will take place at the Toronto Casino Resort and will be the night’s main event, Jesús Milano reports for The WBA.

 

Bautista, 35, is the champion and will try to retain her crown despite being a visitor. The Mexico City native will be making the third defense of her belt, which she won in 2020 when she defeated Nora Cardoza.

 

In September 2021, she made her first defense, defeating Alma Meraz Rodriguez, and her second was against Gabriela Sanchez in 2022. It should be noted that during that time, Bautista remained active and fought even though the belt was not at stake in some of them.

 

Haghighat Joo is an undefeated fighter who has been going strong since her debut in 2022. A 29-year-old fighter with good technique, she is fast finding herself with a great opportunity and will try to take advantage of her tools and the fact that she is at home to surprise the champion and take the title.

 

Bautista has a record of 23 wins, 11 losses, and two draws, in addition to 6 knockouts. Haghighat Joo has three wins and is undefeated.
