In 2014, I won a lightweight world title in Argentina by defeating Maria Maderna. That could be motivation for Daniela.”

The ‘Real Deal’ holds the WBC and WBO featherweight titles and wants to become an undisputed champion at this weight class. Post this fight, she is eyeing a battle with her rival, Jelena Mrdjenovich, who holds the WBA featherweight title.

Speaking on her, she said, “Regarding Jelena, I only have to say is that she has her reasons for not fighting (me) and I respect her for all she has accomplished. I will not rest until I have all the titles at 126 pounds. I’m positive great fights can be made that will make history.”

But, before reaching the WBA champion, she’ll have to get past a mighty opponent in form of Daniela Bermudez.
