SELINA BARRIOS WINS FEMALE LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE
The week between Christmas and New Year’s saw one of the most outstanding fights of the year - and the jump start for two young women’s careers in boxing.
Keeppunching Promotions staged the event in Alexandria Louisiana, featuring Selina Barrios of San Antonio vs Lisa Porter of Los Angeles in the main event. Both women stayed strong through 10 active rounds, ending in a majority decision for Barrios. The crowd spent much of the fight on their feet, overwhelmed by the action.
Congratulations Selina - we look forward to your defense fight!
And the Winner Is..!

In the main event at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas Ernesto Delgadillo (10-0-2, 2 KOs) outworked the tough Oscar Mojica (11-4, 1 KOs) to retain his WBC USA super flyweight title.

The belt was successfully defended the following year with a TKO victory over Albert Davila. Winner of the 1987 Ring Magazine’s Comeback of the Year Award, Frankie Duarte called an end to his fighting career in 1989.d
Shields began his professional career in 1974 and won his first 26 fights, all before the end of 1975! He fought at Lightweight, junior welterweight, and finally Welterweight. He fought the likes of Wilfredo Benitez, Sugar Ray Leonard and Pepino Cuevas before winning the NABF Welterweight belt in 1980. The following year, it took a serious cut to stop him in the 13th round of a tough contest with the great Tommy Hearns. Retirement for Randy came in 1983.
