On Saturday night, Sep. 16, undefeated female flyweight Marlen Esparza moved to 3-0 with a six-round unanimous decision over Colorado’s Tania Cosme inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Esparza, originally from Houston, Tex., is a former Olympian and is held in high regard by those in the sport. She won on all cards by scores of 60-54.

“Even though my opponent, on paper, looked like she had more ring experience, I’ve been in the ring way more than she had,” Esparza stated post-fight. “Because I had three-minute rounds, I was able to think a lot more in the ring and was even told by my trainer I had to slow down.

Esparza didn’t have time to research Cosme, but knew what to expect.

“I couldn’t research much about my opponent, but we knew she was going to be throwing her right often. I’m satisfied with my performance because this was my first 6-round fight,” stated Esparza.

Stay tuned for more updates from the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin fight and undercard, from the T-Mobile Arena.
