In June 2006, Carina won the NABF Lt Flyweight Title. Then, in February 2007, she became the WBC Interim Strawweight World Champion. Two days before Carina flies to Cancun to accept her NABF Award, she will battle Nanako Kikuchi, the WBC Strawweight Champion, at the Tachi Palace in Lemoore, California, to determine who the real WBC World Champion will be.
We are in awe of Carina’s abilities and determination. She is the proper spokeswoman and representative of Champions everywhere.
