Valle Weighs Options for Undisputed While Approaching WBO Deadline

Two-division unified champion Yokasta Valle (27-0, 9KO), after scoring a disputed victory over former unified junior flyweight champion Evelin “La Princesita” Bermudez (17-1-1, 6KO), does not have long to celebrate.

On November 26, Valle added one more checkmark in the legacy column by becoming a two-divisional unified champion. In a spirited battle that saw both champions give it their all, the fight came down to a photo finish.


Despite two of the judge’s absurd scorecards, a case can be made the fight should have been a draw, if not a narrow margin for either fighter. Nevertheless, Valle got the nod and is officially on notice by the WBO to declare which division she wants to remain champion in.

Valle is the procurer of both, the IBF and WBO minimumweight titles. Prior to the bout with Bermudez, the governing sanctioning body approved their showdown. In addition, the WBO committee explained that, if victorious, Valle has 10 days to inform them as to which division she will campaign at.


When looking at the landscape over two divisions, Valle has some good financial options. By staying at junior flyweight, Valle can attempt to solidify her legacy by fighting for undisputed against the winner of the unification between WBC champion Kim Clavel and WBA champion Jessica Nery Plata.

Another option is going back to minimumweight to pursue a fan-favorite showdown with two-divisional champion Seniesa “Super Bad” Estrada. There is a huge backstory to their rivalry as both women used to fight under the Golden Boy Banner.

Estrada wants to unify with WBC champion Tina Rupprecht, meaning a showdown with Valle would also be for undisputed. Honestly, there is no wrong decision as either path potentially leads to undisputed.

3Kings Boxing will continue to monitor this situation and provide any further development.
