Melissa McMorrow fights for WBO title

Ladies and gentlemen Melissa McMorrow is back.

The “Mighty” will try to reclaim her WBO world female flyweight championship Feb. 28 against undefeated prospect and current titleholder Kenia Enriquez at Centro De Convenciones, Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. Enriquez (13-0, 6 KOs) defeated Ana Arrazola to win the vacant title back in November.

McMorrow (9-5-3, 1KO) is coming off back-to-back decision losses over Mariana Juarez and Jessica Chavez. Before those bouts she rode a three-fight winning streak that included a ninth-round TKO against Yahaira Martinez. She first won the WBO title back in 2012 from Susi Kentikian, along with the Women’s International Boxing Federation World flyweight title. She was stripped of the championship by the WBO one year ago after she began her campaign to super flyweight.

McMorrow is in a position like so many previous champions before her and I think she has a good shot to win. Although Enriquez is undefeated, critics might argue that she hasn’t fought that high caliber of opponents, with the exception of Arrazola. The Mighty one is also pretty tough and I’m sure she’ll be able to hang with the rookie.
