Jessica Nery Says She’s Now Double Motivated For Kim Clavel Fight

Jessica Nery Plata did not care when the fight with Kim Clavel was cancelled more than a month ago, as this allowed her to prepare more and become twice as motivated with a single objective: to be a unified champion.

The world female junior flyweight title unification bout was scheduled for December 1st, but days before the fight Clavel had the flu and the fight could not be carried out and was postponed to 13th January, which is knocking at the door.

Given the more breathing room ahead of the clash, Nery stated that it doubled her motivation as the WBA champ aims to clinch the WBC belt held by her Canadian adversary this Friday night at the Place Bell in Laval, Quebec.

“As I said, these are things that can happen to me as well as to her,” Nery told local media. “If she was already motivated, now I come twice as much.”

Given the outbreak of Covid in some countries of the world, the only thing that the Mexican asks for before the fight is that they take great care of themselves.

“I want to tell Kim that I hope there are no setbacks,” she went on, “that she takes great care so that on Friday we offer a great fight.”

And she does it all with the sole objective of making her first title defense and adding another title to her career.

“I am happy and grateful for the opportunity,” Nery went on, “I continue with the motivation to 1000, that goal does not change, we come with everything to take the championship to Mexico.”

Accompanied by her father and coach, Óscar Alejandro Plata, the Mexican boxer knows that no one will let go of the title in her first defense, which is why she expects an intense duel from the beginning.

“I expect a super strong fight,” she added. “Both she and I are not going to let the championship go the first time, so it is a fight that cannot be lost.”

Alejandro, meanwhile, said that his daughter’s preparation was to the maximum, as she waits for the best Kim Clavel.

“I want Clavel to be very tough,” commented her father, “To make it a great fight and all Canadians are happy.”

Kim Clavel, who was accompanied by her trainer Danielle Bouchard, also took advantage of the more than five weeks of postponement to improve.

“It gave us even more time to prepare,” Clavel stated, “It’s like if you had a math test on March 2 and the teacher gave it to you again in April: you have even more time to study.”

Bouchard seconded the boxer’s words and said that this allowed them to work on Kim’s strengths, such as power and preparation, and she is ready.
