The bout, staged in Cai's homeland of China, was a rather one-sided contest as the local favourite used her edge in speed and movement to out work and out move the 36 year old Mexican. The Chinese fighter scored a knockdown along the way to widen the gap as she secured the victory with scores of 100-89, twice, and 99-90. Polo did have some success, but looked like she was second best through out the contest and did little to really look like she belonged in with a fighter of Cai's ability.
With the win Cai becomes the first ever Chinese fighter to hold two world titles, which it's self has become part of the story in the Chinese press, and she further establishes herself as a leading female fighter at 105lbs. She does however leave herself open to questions about the quality of her opponent today, with Polo having won just a single bout in the last 24 months, and that came against a fighter with a 3-3-2 record going into the bout.
Hopefully with the win, and her growing reputation in China, Cai will be able to secure the funding and support needed to face better opponents. Her win over Etsuko Tada is almost 18 months ago, and she hasn't really build on that victory like she should have, and that's despite the quality of opponents in region, such as Ji Hyun Park, Naoko Shibata and Kayoko Ebata. As for Polo this loss may well end her career.
