The outstanding Thai Samson Tor Buamas (27-3, 13) will attempt to defend her WIBA Minimumweight title against young Filipino Aisah Alico (5-1, 4).
The 29 year old Thai, pictured left, is seen by many as one of the outstanding pound-for-pound fighters in female boxing and her record really speaks for it's self.
Since her debut in 2005 Tor Buamas has claimed not only various titles, including her current WIBA Minimumweight title and the WBC female Light Flyweight title but also beaten a relative who's who including Ayaka Miyao, Momo Kosecki and Gretchen Abaniel.
Sadly for Tor Buamas she's had the same issues as her male counterparts in that many of her lesser known opponents were simply raw novices and when you take out her 3 or 4 big wins she has a thin looking record. Thankfully though her big wins are huge and even her losses, to the likes of Nanako Kikuchi and Nadia Raoui are no slight on her talent.
Whilst a lot is known about the talented champion not so much is known about her 21 year old Filipino challenger. Alico made her debut back in 2011 and after scoring 4 pretty easy wins she suffered her first, and so far only, set back being stopped by the experienced Jujeath Nagaowa in 3 rounds.
Since losing to Nagaowa, we've only seen Alico in the ring once, stopping the completely outmatched Jerean Dura in a round. Sadly it's fair to say that the Filipino challenger hasn't got the necessary experience to face someone like Tor Buamas, in fact we could probably go one step further and say she also lacks the skills needed to really challenge the Thai ring queen.
When you have a fighter like Tor Buamas fighting at her natural weight it's always hard to see anyone beating her and we'd be genuinely shocked if Alico managed to score one of the more notable upsets in female boxing.
Former world title challenger Riyo Togo (6-1-1, 5) will attempt to make the first defense of her OPBF Bantamweight title as she faces old rival Kimika Miyoshi (7-5-1, 3) in what will be the fourth meeting between these two rivals.
At 37 years old Togo is certainly no spring chicken though so far as the upper hand on her rival with a record of 2-0-1 (2) against the 29 year old Miyoshi. Despite the history between the two Miyoshi will almost certainly feel this is her chance as she's going into this bout in the form of her life with 4 straight wins (the longest winning run of her career) whilst Togo is 1-1 in her last 2 (including a loss to Janeth Perez in a WBA female Bantamweight title bout).
If Miyoshi ever had a chance to beat Togo this is it, and whilst we favour Togo to finish her hat-trick over Miyoshi, this is certainly not a forgone conclusion.
Note-Boxrec.com list Togo as having a record of 9-3-1 (8), this includes 5 "unsanctioned" bouts.
Kenia Enriquez v Blanca Raymundo
Mexican prospect Kenia Enriquez (4-0, 2) may be only 19 years old but she is quickly becoming one of the young females to watch in the sport of boxing. She will be looking to score her first win of the year when she faces American Blanca Raymundo (1-7) in a 4 round affair.
Although Raymundo has lost 7 of her 8 contests, she is experienced and is certainly a step up from the competition Enriquez has been facing so far, notably however it will be her first fight outside of California.
For the rising teenager this will be a major test and one that she will need to pass in style if she's to remain as the hot prospect that many view her to be. We don't expect her to be able to cruise to victory but we do expect her fight hard for the win, and to maintain her unbeaten record in a thoroughly competitive match up that proves that records aren't everything.
