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 Olivo, 120, of New York, won a close split decision over Ana 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.
