Ducastel Fighting To Become Two-Weight World Champion On May 12
Strasbourg, France (May 3rd, 2017)– Former World Boxing Federation (WBF) Womens World Featherweight Champion Stephanie Ducastel from France will be attempting to become a two-weight champion on May 12, when she fights Argentinian Maria Soledad Capriolo for the vacant WBF World Super Featherweight crown.
Ducastel, 7-3-1 (2), has already achieved amazing things in only eleven professional fights. She captured the French national Featherweight title in her fifth outing, and then became European champion in her eighth fight. In fight number ten, in December of 2015, she won the WBF World Featherweight title.
However, since then she has only fought once, a non-title victory this past January, and decided to vacate her Featherweight title to move up in weight and pursue a new goal: to become a world champion in a second weigh-class.
For Maria Soledad Capriolo, 7-5-4 (0), it will be her first opportunity to win a significant title. Nicknamed “La Bonita”, the 35-year-old from Cordoba has never shied away from a challenge, and since turning professional in 2012 she has happily fought anyone put in front of her.
The Stephanie Ducastel vs. Maria Soledad Capriolo WBF Womens World Super Featherweight title fight, on Friday May 12 at Gymnase Des Malteries in Strasbourg, France, is the main event of a show promoted by Andre Panza and his Panza Gym.
