Mexico vs Canada
The WBA and WBC titles will be united on Thursday when Jessica Nery Plata fights unbeaten star, Kim Clavel.
Nery Plata is the top-ranked fighter in the world and she is favored to win with boxing odds. However, unbeaten fighters always attract attention and Clavel has an upside.
The 32-year-old Canadian scored by unanimous decision with absolute ease, so she’s a top contender to face Nery Plata.
She has been put through a tough training camp ahead of her biggest fight.
“It was an extremely difficult training camp,” Clavel told TVA Sports. “It was the first time that at times I would tell my physical trainer that I didn’t think I would be able to complete certain workouts. I sometimes ended up on all fours, but I always ended up. We were tapping into something that I didn’t know I had.“
We think she has a chance to score a minor upset, but she will need to reach new heights.
Nery Plata Is Battle-Tested
Nery Plata has had by far the tougher fights so far. She comes off a win against Yesica Yolanda Bopp, which was a controversial ruling.
She has also beaten Silvia Torres in 2018 on the back of her second career loss to Kenia Enriquez.
The 28-year-old Mexican has boxing betting markets on her side and with good reason. She won’t be overawed by the magnitude of the event and she has ice in her veins.
However, because both fighters lack knockout power, so it’s likely to go to a judge’s decision. That could favor Nery Plata, who has 25 wins by a decision from 28 fights.
Her experience edge could be enough to win the fight and market confidence could be a telling factor for bettors.
