BYB Lightweight Champion Paty Juarez to Undergo Surgery, Out Indefinitely from Competition
Monica “Phenomamom” Medina will now face Jessica Link at BYB 13 Tampa Brawl for it All.
Miami, FL – BYB Extreme announced today that BYB Lightweight Champion Paty Jarez will require surgery and will be out of action indefinitely. Juarez was scheduled to defend her BYB title and the Police Gazette Diamond Belt in a rematch against Monica Medina at BYB 13 Tampa Brawl for it All on November 19. The two had faced off this past August in Biloxi with Juarez emerging with a 7-round split decision.
Instead, matchmaker Mel Valenzuela has announced that Medina will face Jessica Link at BYB 13.
Said Medina, “While I was looking forward to the rematch against Paty, I want to beat her at her best. I wish her a speedy recovery. I commend Jessica for taking the match on late notice, but she’s not going to stand in the way of my ultimate goal, which is winning gold and proving myself the woman to beat in BYB.”
BYB 13 will feature a pair of high profile title matches. BYB’s Desmond Green will take on BKB’s Scott McHugh for both the BYB Middleweight title and the Police Gazette World Diamond Belt. Tony Lopez, undefeated in the Trigon, makes his first heavyweight title defense as he takes on challenger DJ Linderman.
