- Caroline Dubois Headlines For The First Time In Her Career
- 22-year-old Lightweight Faces Mexican Veteran Rodriguez
- Dubois vs Rodriguez Tops BOXXER Fight Card At York Hall
Caroline Dubois (7-0, 5 KO’s) and Mexican veteran Magali Rodriguez (22-6-4, 9 KO’s) clash for the IBO Lightweight Championship in the main event of a BOXXER: Breakthrough event on Saturday, September 30th at London’s 1200-capacity York Hall, live on Sky Sports.
Dubois has been calling out Mikaela Mayer but Mayer looks to be moving up to 147 and challenge for a title there. ‘Sweet Caroline’ progressed to contender status with a conclusive win in June and now must keep active and her name in the spotlight as she plots a route to a world title.
Rodriguez, who drew to Estelle Mossely last time out, should be a similar level for Dubois as Lescano was.
The Mexican has lost six times before and drawn on four different occasions including journeywoman Karla Ramos Zamora in December, who Dubois rival Beatriz Ferriera dominated in July.
Dubois hopes to be the first person to beat Rodriguez in five years and the third to stop her as she fights the championship distance for the first time.
