The latest triumph of Filipina-American boxing champion Ana Julaton over Mexican bet Yolanda “La Negra” Segura will be aired tomorrow, 11:05 a.m. over GMA Channel 7, a press release from the network said.
Known in the combat sport as “The Hurricane”, the 31-year-old Julaton pulled a successful comeback in the ring against Segura in their fight at Kanasin, Yucatan, Mexico last May 4.
The 25-year-old Segura , though backed by a home court advantage, failed to establish her power punching rhythm and finished the 10-round fight behind on points from Julaton.
The first ever Filipina boxer to bag several world titles and make it to the list of 100 Most Influential Filipinas in 2009, with a score card of 10 wins, one knock out, and three losses, Julaton reclaimed her throne as one of the best female fighters of the renowned sport, the press release said.*
