MANILA, Philippines – Filipina boxer Ana “Hurricane” Julaton survived a cut above her right eye to earn a decision victory over Mexican boxer Perla Hernandez in Yucatan, Mexico.
Julaton sustained a cut on her right eyebrow after an accidental headbutt in the sixth round, Ed dela Vega of PhilBoxing reported.
Julaton was still able to come away with the victory, however, as she was the busier fighter.
The judges scored the bout 97-93, 98-94 and 95-95, giving the Filipina the win via majority decision.
The win allowed Julaton to bounce back from the loss she suffered at the hands of Celina Salazar in Mexico last August.
