Unbeaten Argentina warrior lady Nazarena “Capricho” (Caprice) Romero and compatriot Julieta Andrea “La Zorrita” (Little Fox) Cardozo can’t wait to battle each other in an attempt to join the legendary list of Argentine world champions as the two women collide for the interim WBA Super Bantamweight World Title this Saturday, December 5, at the Club de Ajedrez in La Calera, Córdoba, Argentina.

The clash will be the first world-title shot for the 26-year-old “Capricho” Romero (10-0, 4 KO’s), who is the reigning Argentina National Champion as well as South American 122-lbs Champion.

Will “Capricho” Romero also become the world champion this Saturday?

For that, the cute Argentina battling woman will have to defeat 27-year-old Julieta Andrea “La Zorrita” Cardozo (12-5, 1 KO) from San Salvador de Jujuy in Northern Argentina, a relentless fighter who fights for a 4th time for a world title.

Three years ago, Julieta Andrea fell on points to Colombian Dayana Cordero for the WBA 118-lbs belt, then lost another two title tries to fellow Argentinians Débora Anahi Dionicius for the IBF 115-pounds title and Maria Cecilia Roman and Maria Cecilia Roman for the IBF 118-lbs diadem.

Will the affable Julieta Andrea “La Zorrita” finally out-fox her opponent to claim the boxing world crown that she has always been dreaming of?

In the co-feature, 29-year-old Jairo Ariel Rayman (15-1-1, 6 KO’s) from Clemente Onelli in Rio Negro Province, crashes against tough Buenos Aires journeyman Sergio José Sanders (21-11-2, 12 KO’s) in a non-title rumble in the middleweight division.

The complete card totals 6 pro fights ready to thrill boxing fans in La Calera, Cordoba.

The official weigh-in takes place Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the La Calera Headquarters of the Argentine Mining Workers Association (AOMA), on Vélez Street Sarsfield 581, broadcast live on TyC Sports’ Sportia Newscast.

The show, billed as “El Capricho Mayor,” is a promotion of Sampson Lewkowicz in association with Tello Box, live in Latin America on TyC Sports and TyC Sports Play. Telecast starts 11:35 pm (Argentina Time)
