Peru's Famous Female Boxer - Kina Malpartida

Posted by Marco Antonio Mendoza Wednesday, December 9, 2009

If you live in Peru you may have heard about female boxer Kina Malpartida, you may have even seen one of her latest fights.  Well it's know surprise that Kina has become a national sensation and hero in the eyes of many Peruvians.  Kina Malpartida is better known for her accomplishment as the 2009 World Boxing Association Champion in the Super Featherweight division. 

I first heard about Kina in June of this year when I was at a bar in Los Calles de Los Pizzas in Miraflores with a few friends of mine.  There we watched on a large projector screen what was a highly anticipated fight between Malpartida and Halana Dos Santos from Brazil.  That fight was the first time I had ever heard the name Kina Malpartida and when she won by KO in that very same match I would continue to hear her name and see her face everywhere.  Following the fight with Dos Santos, Kina became an overnight sensation in Peru and she started appearing everywhere from billboards to toothpaste commercials on TV.









So who is Kina Malpartida Dyson aside from professional boxing champion?  I did some reading and was intrigued to learn that miss Malpartida belongs to the classification of what I like to call Super Humans, these are people with extraordinary athletic abilities commonly seen in professional athletes.  Kina Malpartida (a Peruvian-Australian) since her childhood has always been involved athletically, earning her boxing reputation from her beginnings in Karate at the age of 6.  Aside from her martial arts activities, Kina also played competitive Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, and Track & Field. 

In 1996, Kina having surfed since she was 10 became the Peruvian Surfing Champion when she competed in the Women's Open World Surfing Championship, it was in this very competition that Kina defeated world renouned surfering champion Sofia Mulanovic (also Peruvian).  Kina has competed in our championships in Peru as well as in Australia where she has placed in the top 10.

With professional boxing as her new athletic challenge Kina is on a roll and with her victory defeating her title from British boxer Lindsey Scragg in Citizens Business Bank Arena in Los Angeles where she won by unanimous decision.  Her current boxing track record is listed below:

Observing her long history of accomplishments it's not hard to understand how this competitive and young (born in 1980) woman has managed to accomplish so much and it is no doubt that Ms. Malpartida has much more in store for us down the road.  

Here are the videos from the last fight that took place in LA on the 5th of December against British boxer Lyndsey Scragg
