Carina ďLa ReinaĒ Moreno, 104.4, of Watsonville, California,
won a 10-round decision over Yahaira Martinez, 106, of Puerto
Rico. Moreno's fight was made a non-title bout for the WBC due to
Martinez not making weight. In a second womenís bout, Dominga

Julaton, 121.2,. 77-75 (Olivo), 77-75 (Julaton), and 79-73 (Olivo)The two fought for the super bantamweight WBC International title.
Ed Pearson of the WBC said in a press release, "We have some results
from a show last night in Lemoore, California. Moreno
was prepared to fight for the WBC World female Strawweight
title went ahead as a non-title fight because Yahaira Martinez
failed to make the weight." "Martinez weighed in 2.8 pounds
over the 105 pound limit. Another reason why we have to have the 30
and 7 day weigh in results. Some people donít seem to think itís a
big deal, but sometimes, like this, it comes back to hurt them when
they donít do it. Had Carina Moreno lost the fight, the title would
have been vacated. Carina Moreno won a unanimous decision with
scores of 100-90 (x2) and 97-93", added Pearson.
