Lescurat Retains Title and Could Unify With Irma Garcia Next

WBA super flyweight champion Clara Lescurat (10-0, 4KO) successfully retained the title after dominating Regina Chavez (7-4-3, 1KO) in front of the home crowd in Argentina. Looking down the line a unification with two-divisional champion Irma Garcia (23-5-1, 4KO) could be the only option.

The champion was clicking on all cylinders landing punches from different angles. In addition, her ability to be first as the two fighters engaged kept Chavez off balance the entire fight. As the fight continued, the champion’s defense remained solid as she kept blocking her opponent’s attempts only to land sharp counter shots.

When the final bell sounded, two judges scored it 97-93, with one having it 99-91 in favor of the WBA champion. The 35-year-old took to social media with a message for the fans.


Looking at what could be next for the Argentinian should be a unification. There was a belief that she was going to unify with then-IBF champion Micaela Lujan in 2022. Unfortunately, she is no longer the champion as Garcia is now the holder of the title.

There is a case that can be made for WBO champion Mizuki Hiruta. But she has only fought in her home country of Japan, which could make things problematic.

WBC champion Asley Gonzalez has been M.I.A since defeating Lourdes Juarez in a rematch on March 25, 2023. The Mexican more than likely won’t be willing to jump right into a unification before taking a fight to get the rust off.

So, the best course of action is to pursue a unification against IBF champion Garcia, who defeated Stephanie Silva for the vacant title in 2023. She has fought twice in Argentina for the WBO bantamweight and IBF super flyweight titles. Furthermore, she has expressed wanting to unify and could be persuaded to travel to Argentina for a third time.

The time to push for a unification has to be the number one priority for Lescurat and it all starts now.
