Eye on Womens Boxing Duer Stops Scaranello – Last night in Quilmes, Argentina, an interim version of the IBF world female bantamweight title was disputed between Carolina Raquel Duer (18-3-1) and Aline de Cassia Scaranello (10-4). The fight was the main event of a five fight boxing card that aired on TyC Sports in Argentina.

From the start, it was clear that Duer was the more skilled fighter, but Scaranello came out aggressive in the early going. Scaranello was coming forward and appeared to take punches in order to get inside and brawl. Though it took Duer a few rounds to adjust, she was able to settle in and establish her distance. By the third and fourth rounds, Duer was making itr very costly for Scaranello to come inside as she landed repeatedly to the Brazilian girl’s face. As the fight progressed, Scaranello started to run out of steam, but she was not able to alter her game plan. By round seven, Duer had broken through and was landing punches at will when the corner for Scaranello threw in the towel.

Overall it was a strong performance for the veteran Duer, despite an opponent who was not on her level.  Scaranello deserves credit for bringing the fight and remaining game, but she falls to 10-5 overall and 1-2 in 2016.

Duer, a long-time holder of the WBO world titles at super flyweight and bantamweight,  is now the interim IBF titleholder. Her record is now 19-3-1 as she has gone 17-0-1 since starting her career off going 2-3. At 38 years old, Duer is likely poised to face off against Chile’s Carolina Rodriguez, who is undefeated at 15-0 and currently holds the IBF’s full version of the world title.

The undercard consisted of four and six round fights in the men’s categories.
