Jackie Nava to Say Goodbye To Boxing After Next Fight

In boxing, legends of the sport and the memories they gave us are timeless. It is something fans talk about long after they are gone, and often the boxing community gets to say goodbye. That will happen when multi-divisional champion Jackie “La Princesa Azteca” Nava (39-4-4, 16KO) has her final match on October 1.

Ironically, her last fight, against another legend in women’s boxing and Mexican rival, Mariana “La Barba” Juarez, was in October 2021. That was the last time Nava was seen in the ring, with La Princesa Azteca winning in dominating fashion.

At the 41-years old, Nava’s career has spanned over two decades and she has contested at a high level throughout. She has shared the ring with world champions like Yazmin Rivas, Alejandra Marina Oliveras, Marcela Eliana Acuna, and Alicia Ashley. That is just the shortlist, never mind the countless number of top contenders she fought against during a lengthy career.


After getting the most satisfying victory over long-time rival Juarez, the boxing community knew it had witnessed the end of an era. It was only a matter of time before Nava was going to hang up the gloves.

In her farewell fight, the multi-divisional Mexican legend will be facing a well-deserved light touch against unknown Argentinian fighter Gloria Yancaqueo (9-11-3, 2KO). Fans will undoubtedly pack the arena to show their appreciation and say farewell to the former champion.

Excited about the journey ahead, Nava took to social media to share the news of her last match with the fans.
