McMahon promised WBC World title rematch-‘The fight for Justice’ could play out in Ireland

Christina McMahon will fight for the WBC world flyweight title and justice before the year is out.

Irish-boxing.com has learnt Ireland’s leading pro lady will get another shot at Mexican Zulina Munoz and her belt. Even more exciting for the Monaghan puncher and Irish fight fans is that the bout looks likely to take place in either the UK or Ireland, with Ireland being a strong favourite.

The news comes not long after the WBC released a statement claiming McMahon and her team had dropped a rematch appeal despite raising issues regarding the lack of anti-doping testing, the gloves, and the judges with the WBC.

The governing body claim they investigated all issues resolved the doping question and found nothing wrong with the gloves or scoring, yet a rematch is now back on the cards.

The Irish fighter hasn’t gone into much detail regarding said issues raised or the behind-the-scenes workings with the WBC, but her team never dropped the appeal and have been promised a rematch.

This in itself suggests some wrong doing in Mexico despite the WBC’s public claims. In that regard this becomes not just a fight for a World title but one for justice and the boxing little man or in this case lady.

McMahon has elected against commenting on the appeal to date or sharing in dept the wrong doings she felt took place ahead of and during her third world title.

However, she has said she was confident she won the fight and is adamant she deserves a rematch.

“If I was judging the fight I would give myself six rounds and her four. I think I six rounds rounds clearly, because it was a her home show I left four of them too close for comfort. I feel I won it,” McMahon told Iris-boxing.com.

“I believe I already beat her and I believe I could do it again. I believe I am entitled to a rematch. I earn it. I would have possibly retired if I won the title, but I am not retiring until win or lose until I do my part to ensure fair play is given in the sport by having a fair rematch.”
