April Hunter Wrestling La Tigresa in IWA

Here's a video that was very popular on my old Lucha Women blog.
It's a video posted on YouTube by dindio30 of April Hunter taking on La Tigresa in the Puerto Rican wrestling promotion, International Wrestling Association (IWA).

April Hunter Wrestling La Tigresa in IWA

Of course April Hunter was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and wrestled a lot here in the States, but she still has quite a following in Mexico from the time she spent working for various wrestling promotions there.

The IWA was actually started in Japan by promoter Victor Quiones in 1994.
In 1999, the Hispanic version was created and up until 2001, IWA was a member of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA).
From 1999 to 2001, it was also a WWE Developmental territory.

Anyway, here is a match from IWA's Juicio Final 4 back in 2004 with April Hunter taking on La Tigresa.
You know usually April has a size advantage over her opponents.
But not in this case.
You have April at five foot nine, 150 pounds against La Tigresa at five foot eight, 167 pounds.
