Zapata suffered a series of power punches in the corner of the ring and, after a solid uppercut, the fighter seemed stunned near the end of the fourth round. A final right hook caused Zapata's mouthguard to fly out and left her unable to return to her corner after the bell rang. ⁣https://abc7.com/mexican-boxer....-jeanette-zacarias-z

Groupe Yvon Michel Was Probably Boxing Above Her Weight Class.. Meaning.. She Was Probably A Lightweight That Put On Weight To Fight In The Female Welterweight Category.. Meaning Groupe WAS NOT A Natural Welterweight.. But Marie-Pier Was.. Meaning.. Groupe Gained The Weight, But Was Unable To Develop The Welterweight Muscle Mass And Bone Structure.. Oh Well.. Lesson Learned.. Jus Sayin.. Yep...
