Alarcon, 25, has been a professional for around 7 years, but his career hasn’t been particularly busy. Her record dropped to 5-2-1 after one bout in 2012, followed by more action in 2013 and 2014. Although that wasn’t a strong start on paper, defeats to Alondra Garcia and Ana Victoria Polo are in no way cause for concern. Alarcon, who fought eight times in just 25 months, has a record of 7-2-1 since the year 2015 began, competing around twice a year. She lost twice during that 10-fight streak by razor-thin decisions to Garcia in a rematch and Arely Mucino. Despite those defeats, she has achieved a number of noteworthy victories, including triumphs over Brenda Ramos,
With victories over Mayela Perez in 2017 for the WBA Atomweight championship and Yoshikawa in Japan for the WBA female title at Flyweight, Alarcon is a two-time world champion. Her quickness, tenacity, and ability to fight small—using her small stature to avoid shots, move forward, and counter—have been the keys to her victories. She is underrated, has a slippery side, and lacks force, but she manages to land cleanly.
Miyao has been a professional since 2004, when the JBC recognized female boxing, making her a true veteran of the female scene. She had a less than fantastic start to her career, finishing 4-4-1, but since then, she has gone 19-3 and emerged as one of the most important players in the Atomweight division. At 36, she is still competing successfully. In fact, Miyao is not only still going strong, but she did so despite suffering a horrifying leg injury that at the time appeared to be potentially career-ending.
Miyao started her career with a record of 7-5-1 before being undefeated for more than 5 years and winning 13 straight games. She really made a name for herself during that run, winning the WBA Atomweight championship for the first time and making five successful title defenses before dropping the crown in a 2015 unification match to WBC champion Momo Koseki. Since then, she has gone 3-1, with the loss coming in the match against Nao Ikeyama in which she injured her leg, a loss that has since been avenged.
