Maricela "La Diva" Cornejo improved to 10-2 scoring a 4th round TKO against veteran Lisa Noel Garland in a fight that was televised on ESPN. It was a one-sided ass whipping where Cornejo beat Garland down like Garland owed her money. It was the 5th straight win for the 30 year-old Cornejo, who is currently being promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
Cornejo is currently ranked #3 in the world by the WBA in the super middleweight division. An eventual showdown with WBA super middleweight champion and two time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields could be in the future.
