EntSun News/10950223
In what may be the most significant world title fight in Africa since the Rumble in the Jungle, Maricela Cornejo and Noni Tenge are matched in a WBF championship fight that transcends boxing with womens rights and the redemption of two iconic champs

CANTIL, Calif. - EntSun -- Maricela Cornejo, the former WBC International Middleweight Champion who currently hosts the 'Mari!' show on the TVS Television Network, will clash with former WBF Champion Noni Tenge in an October fight that will serve as a pivotal advancement for womens boxing and a personal challenge of redemption for the two former champions. The fight not only focuses on the advance of the state of womens boxing, but also the establishment of South Africa as a championship boxing destination for such fights.

Maricela Cornejo is an iconic story in womens boxing. A model and TeleNovela TV actress, she ventured into  Manny Pacquio's gym in Hollywood to shed weight for a TV commercial and came out an aspiring boxer. Already a top collegiate athlete in softball and volleyball (she once hit a ball out of Dodger Stadium), Cornejo quickly proved no match for amateurs, and quickly became a pro, where she stormed up the World Rankings, won the WBC International Middleweight Champiomnship, only to lose twice in WBC World Championships.

The South African is now front and center to battle Cornejo in their mutual quest to advance the state of womens boxing globally, citing the WBF as a leader in supporting the advance of womens boxing and women boxers. Both boxers have been active advocates for the advance of womens boxing.

TVS has just renewed the 'Mari' TV show for a second season. It airs internationally on broadcast TV, cable TV, IPTV, streaming, and OTT platforms.
