The former Wba, Wbc, Ibf super lightweight and Ibf, Iba, Wbf welterweight champion Anne Sophie Mathis entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 27-3-1 (23 KOs=85%) and she is ranked as the No.1 women’s super welterweight in the world but she won just one out of his last four fights. In fact she suffered two consecutive defeats in 2012, against Holly Holm (in their rematch – Mathis won the first bout) and against Cecilia Braekhus (=Braekhus vs Mathis), then she won the vacant Wbf super-Ww title with Yahaira Hernandez in 2013 and her last bout, against Christina Hammer, ended in a no-contest.
Her opponent, the 20-year-old (17 years younger than Mathis) former Wbo super-Ww champion Oxandia Castillo, has an official record of 13-2-2 (10 KOs=77%) and she entered as the No.4 in the same weight class; she lost twice between 2013 and 2014, against Cecilia Braekhus (=Braekhus vs Castillo) and Noni Tenge, but then ‘La Loba’ Castillo came back to win beating Yoseidy Zarzuela. Mathis vs Castillo is valid for the WBF female super welterweight title (Mathis’ first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
