Erin McGowan & Monica Acosta on Weight for Title Bout
WBO Lightweight Champion Erin McGowan and WBA & WBC Light Welterweight Champion Monica Acosta were both on weight in Santa Rosa, La Pampa, Argentina for their title bout set for Friday night. LaCosta weighed in at 63.2 kg/139.3 pounds; while McGowan 62.5 kg/137.8 pounds for their light welterweight tilt for LaCoasta’s titles.
The Argentinian LaCosta (14-0-2) won the vacant WBA title by defeating Alejandra Marina Oliveras in February. All of her fights have been in her home country. She is current ranked #4 in the world in her weight class by WBAN.
The Australian McGowan (14-0) won her own WBO female lightweight title by defeating Lyndsey Scragg for the vacant title a year ago. This will be McGowan’s first boxing match outside of Oceania, but she has been training out of Tampa with the legendary Angelo Dundee and his training team.
