(San Diego) –
In boxing, a belt is not an accessory but an identity. Once a career is over, success is not measured in a win/loss record, money in the bank, magazine covers or possessions but in how many world titles were collected. Ever since Tijuana’s Kenia Enriquez (12-0, 6 KO) laced up the gloves at the tender age of thirteen the dream has been the same.
To capture the world title.
Things since then might have changed, different trainers, different gyms, different scenery but the goal has never changed. Tonight after two years and twelve fights as a professional Enriquez gets her first opportunity for a world title when she faces the much more experienced Ana “La Bronca” Arrazola (20-10-3, 13KO) of Mexico City for the vacant World Boxing Organization female flyweight title in a bout scheduled for ten rounds.
In Kenia’s eyes, the title comes right at the perfect time. “At first my plan was to wait until next year to look for a shot at the title but thanks to my promoter Bobby DePhilippis the opportunity is here. I am ready. My whole life has led to this. All those early mornings, running all those miles, all those afternoons in the gym, sparring, working the bags, the years of learning from my father, my last trainer Gerardo Espinoza and now Don Romulo Quirarte, it has led to this.”
