Alejandra Jimenez vs Franchon Crews-Dezurn in San Antonio, Texas

Texas Review | Ralph Arvesen
Alejandra Jimenez beats Franchon Crews-Dezurn to become the Unified Women's Super Middleweight Champion at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on January 11, 2020.

What a fantasic contest. Jimenez and Crews-Dezurn put on a show for 30 minutes with each woman having their moments. But it came down to Jimenez landing the harder shots consistently, pushing the pace and making Crews-Dezurn compete from behind.

Jimenez called out women's junior middleweight and undisputed women's middleweight champion Claressa Shields. I wouldn't mind seeing Jimenez and Crews-Dezurn run it back as it was much closer than the judges' scorecards indicated. (Source: DAZN)
Alejandra Jimenez - I feel great! This is amazing! I’ve accomplished one of my biggest dreams. I’m getting some action for my family, my daughters; I’ve been away from my family for a long time. This win is for them, my team, and my country, particularly my Cancun that I love so much.
Franchon Crews-Dezurn - I’m heartbroken, but I’ve been here before. This is a learning experience, I have to go back and regroup with my team because I don’t think a decision on my favor was that far. This was a tough fight for me. This was my 8th fight, but I’m still learning and growing in the ring.
