Selina Barrios Returns To The Ring
September 22 In Corpus Christi
Undefeated NABF Lightweight champion, Selina "Aztec Queen"
Barrios (4-0, 2 KOs), returns to the ring on September 22,
2018, against an opponent TBA. The 10-round bout will take
place at Whataburger Field, home to the Corpus Christi
Hooks, the double-A affiliate of the Houston Astros.
In her last bout, Barrios, who is a devastating
power-puncher, scored a sensational knockout against
previously unbeaten foe, Aida "Lady Sparta" Satybaldinova
(3-1-1). Barrios' knockout over Satybaldinova, which many

when she steps in the ring in on Sept 8.

I step in the ring is to give the fans their money's worth.
I love knocking out my opponents, and that will be my
mindset going into this fight."

her managers love most about her.

like Selina Barrios," said Kerry Daigle, Barrios' advisor.
"The Houston Astros organization is very thrilled to be
showcasing Selina to their fans. Corpus Christi will once
again get to see one of the most exciting female fighters in
the world take her career to the next level. I really
believe Selina Barrios will be the next great champion in

"After Selina's last fight, everyone in Corpus Christi was
talking about her sensational knockout," said Charles
Campbell, who co-manages Barrios with his son Colin. "It's
