It seems like we're seeing a lot of bouts being added to the July calendar. The most recent addition is the female Light Flyweight title fight between defending Japanese title holder Naoko Shibata (14-3, 4) and Mexican veteran Esmeralda Moreno (30-7-1, 10). The bout, which will now take place on July 17th, was first announce for June 27th but has been rescheduled due to issue of the local promoter.
From what we understand the issue won't really effect either fighter or their preparation and the but is still to be held in Mexico.
At the moment the promoters haven't nailed down a venue though it's expected to be no real issue for the promoter to get one.
Whilst the new date won't be a major issue to the two fighters it does need noting that Shibata was originally expected to fly out to Mexico later this week, something that has now been pushed back until July.
