Canadian fighter Olivia Gerula would be the next challenger of Peruvian boxing world champion Kina Malpartida. Kina “Dinamite” Malpartida will have to defend her WBA title (maybe in Peru again) in no less than four months.

According to Malpartida’s manager Gonzalo Larrain, “it is likely that Kina’s next challenger would be Canadian boxer Gerula Olivia, who is at the top of this list.”

According to WBA Rules, this time they will choose the challenger and place for the fight.

Larrain remarked that Lima has everything it takes to host a WBA title fight again as it made a very good impression on the boxing organization’s representatives who arrived in the Peruvian capital.
