Justice – McMahon and World champ to begin rematch negotiations

Christina McMahon will get to ‘fight for justice’ and the WBC super flyweight World title.

The WBC have confirmed talks regarding a rematch with Zulina Munoz will start next Monday, providing the Mexican successfully defends her title for the eleventh time against Vanesa Lorena Taborda this coming Saturday night.

Munoz is strong favourite going into the clash, but if the challenger does pull off a shock Ireland’s leading pro lady should still get the chance to challenge for the strap for a second time.

McMahon, who could become only the second Irish fighter after Wayne McCullough to become a WBC champ, and Munoz met last December (Watch Here).

The Monaghan star felt aggrieved by a points reverse, but by all accounts her team were disgusted by some of the on goings before the fight. An appeal raised regarding the lack of anti-doping testing, the gloves, and the judges  led to an investigation launched by WBC.


It now appears the former Interim Bantamweight World title holder will get to compete in a third World title fight. The WBC have assured McMahon she will get a rematch and negotiations over where and when can begin as early as Monday.

As the bout has been mandated by the WBC it is hard to see, who has the promotional upper hand, but Irish-boxing.com believe there is a very strong chance ‘Lightning’ will get the chance to challenge for the World title in Ireland this Autumn.
