Marlen Esparza retains WBO NABO Title in California

#GBxDAZN #ThursdayNightFights WBO NABO Flyweight Champion Marlen Esparza (7-0, 1 KO) of Houston, TX defeated Mexico’s Sonia Osorio (13-6-1, 3 KOs) via unanimous decision to retain her title @ Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio. Scorecards: 79-73 (x2) 78-74.

“I think I did okay,” said Marlen Esparza. “I’m always so hard on myself, though. She kept putting her head on my chest, which I didn’t like. The referee never stopped her, which makes me think he was letting us fight. That’s good, but I also figured I had to take matters into my own hands. So, I found my timing and started landing the counter right hand. I want to beat Seniesa Estrada’s ass first, and then I want to fight for a world title.”
