Flyweight champion Arely ("Ametralladora") Muciño was born in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. She has dedicated herself to boxing since the age of 13,. She is managed and coached by her father, Joseph Muciño Ramirez, a former amateur boxer.  As an amateur herself she won twelve championships with a record of 30-3 (22 KO's).  At age 15 she was invited to a dual meet with Argentina but could not take part owing to conflict with her studies. 

She turned pro in 2008, and made her debut on February 7 2008 at Dscoteca Stratus in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, México against Alma Florez Bueno of Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl.  The result of the four-rounder was a draw, evening Bueno's record at 1-1-1.  Muciño says she had expected to fight at junior bantamweight and got weak after weighing in at flyweight.

On June 19, 2008 at the Roots Magic Club in Lomas de Sotelo, Distrito Federal, México, Arely won a four-round unanimous decision in a rematch with Alma Florez Bueno. 

On February 4, 2009 at  Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely TKO'd Magdalena Leija of Saltillo, México at 0:30 in the third round of a scheduled six-rounder. Leija fell to 0-6 with the loss.

On March 4, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely (114¾ lbs) KO'd pro debuter Yasbed Alvarez (115½ lbs) just 20 seconds into the first round of a scheduled six-rounder.  (Alvarez hasn't fought professionally since).

On May 10, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely won by a TKO when Elena Luz Rodriguez of Mexicali retired at 0:10 in the third round of a scheduled seven-rounder.  Rodriguez, who had fought Elena Reid, Vaia Zaganas and Wendy Rodriguez in the USA, was attempting a comeback after a four-year absence from pro boxing but she fell to 3-4-1 (0 KO's) with this loss and has not fought again.

On June 30, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely won a ten-round unanimous decision over Gabriela Gonzalez of Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, México for the vacant Mexican Flyweight title. Gonzalez fell to 5-2-0 (1 KO) with the loss.

On August 18, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely TKO'd Sandra Hernandez in the seventh round of a scheduled ten-rounder defending the Mexican Flyweight title.  Hernandez fell to 2-6-0 (1 KO).

On October 28, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely TKO'd Nancy Yesenia Franco of Jalisco, México at 1:30 in the first round of a scheduled eight-rounder.  Franco fell to 1-1-1 (1 KO) with the loss.

On December 15, 2009 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely (114¾ lbs) TKO'd a game but outgunned Mariela "La Ranita" Catorce (114¾ lbs) in the fifth round of a scheduled ten-rounder. Catorce fell to 1-3-0 (0 KO's) with the loss.

On February 6, 2010 at Arena Monterrey in Monterrey, México, Arely (114 lbs) won a six-round unanimous (59-56,59-56,59-55) decision over Anahi Torres Ramos (110 lbs) of Texcoco, México, who fell to 3-6-0 (0 KO's) with the loss.

On March 23, 2010 at Arena El Jefe in Monterrey, México, Arely won a ten-round unanimous decision over Anahi Torres, who fell to 3-6-0 (0 KO's).

Susi Kentikian and Arely MucinoOn July 17, 2010 at the Sport and Congress Center in Schwerin, Germany, Arely (111¼ lbs) surprised Susi Kentikian (112 lbs)  of Germany in the first two rounds of a scheduled ten-rounder for Kentikian's WIBF, WBA and WBO Flyweight titles.  The bout was stopped by referee Joe Cortez at 0:12 in the third round when Kentikian was deeply cut on her scalp in an accidental clash of heads. The ring doctor attempted to stop the bleeding but said that although the cut was not large, is was very deep. The decision to stop the fight made it a technical draw, but the two-round judges' scorecards were released - 19-19, 19-19 and 20-18 for Muciño.  

Although the three title belts eluded her, the four exciting minutes Arely Muciño fought in Germany introduced her fast-paced boxing style to an international audience and brought her the promotional support of Hector Garcia Boxing at home.

On January 22, 2011 at Arena Neza in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl, México, Arely (111¾ lbs) won the IBF Flyweight title by TKO when Chantel Cordova (111¾ lbs) of Pueblo, Colorado, USA retired at the end of the third round. Cordova, a former US amateur national champion, had no answer for Mucino's high pressure attack and fell to 8-2-1 (3 KO's) in her pro career.  [Video]

On March 19, 2011 at the Gymnasium of the Autonomous University of Tamaulipas (UAT) in Tampico, Tamaulipas, México, Arely (112 lbs) won a ten-round unanimous decision over Carolina Alvarez (111¼ lbs) of Venezuela defending the IBF Flyweight title. Alvarez, who went to the canvas from a hard left n the first round, gamely hung in for the full distance but fell to 10-4-1 (5 KO's) with the loss.  [Video]

On July 2, 2011 at Gimnasio Nuevo León in Monterrey,  México, Arely Muciño (111¾ lbs) retained the IBF Flyweight title with a fourth round TKO of Soledad Macedo (111¾ lbs) of Salto, Uruguay. Muciño broke Macedo's nose in the opening round. At 0:33 in the fourth round, Muciño landed a big left followed by a big overhand right that persuaded referee Ramon Corona to stop the bout. Macedo's record dropped to 10-7-1, (4 KO's) with the loss.

Mucino vs VazquezOn August 20, 2011 at Casino Black Pyramid in Manzanillo, Colima, MéxicoArely Muciño (112 lbs) won a ten-round unanimous (98-92,96-94,97-93) decision over Susana Vazquez (112 lbs) of Toluca, México, defending the IBF Flyweight title. This was an exciting fight in which Vazquez gamely withstood the hard-hitting aggressive attack of Muciño who improved to 14-0-1 (8 KO's) as Vazquez fell to 5-6-1 (2 KO's).

On October 29, 2011 at El Palenque de la Feria in Colima, Mexico, Ava Knight (111¾ lbs) of Chico, California knocked out Arely Muciño (111¾ lbs) in the second round of a scheduled ten-rounder for the IBF Flyweight title. Muciño began the fight aggressively with straight lefts and hooks to the liver but Knight used her height advantage to land a straight left followed by a right hook to the chin that knocked Muciño to the canvas in a corner. That knockdown was ruled a slip but Knight quickly followed through with a digging left to the body followed by a left to Muciño's head that put the Mexican champion flat on her back. The fight was stopped by the referee at 0:34 in the second stanza with Muciño still lying on her her back on the canvas.   Knight improved her record to 7-1-3 (4 KO's) while Muciño fell to 14-1-1 (8 KO's).  [Video]

Mucino vs McMorrow
McMorrow vs Mucino  in February 2012

On February 25, 2012 at Coliseo Olimpico in Guadalajara, Mexico, Arely Muciño won a hard-fought split decision (97-93,98-92,93-97) over Melissa McMorrow of San Francisco, California for the WBA Interim World Flyweight title.  Muciño started the fight in her usual aggressive style but soon discovered that McMorrow was not to be intimidated. Much of the fight then took place with  Muciño uncharacteristically counterpunching while McMorrow came forward trying to corral her against the ropes.  Muciño's defense was tested hard by McMorrow's relentless aggression but she used her hand speed and punching accuracy from a variety of angles to keep the fight close on the scorecards. Most of the rounds were closely contested and there were no knockdowns or injuries, resulting in a badly split verdict among the the judges and much talk about the need for a rematch that would certainly be popular with fight fans after this barn burner.   Muciño improved to 15-1-1 (8 KO's) while McMorrow slipped to 6-3-3 (0 KO's)  [Video]

Mariana Juarez and Arely Mucino

On May 12, 2012 at the Hotel Presidente Intercontinental in Polanco, Distrito Federal, Mexico, Mariana Juarez (112 lbs) of Mexico City won an exceptionally hard-fought ten-round split (96-91,94-95,98-90) decision over Arely Muciño (111 lbs) defending the WBC Flyweight title. Juarez put Muciño on the canvas twice in the second round and Muciño looked unsteady and in trouble when she was saved by the bell at the end of that round. The fight was by no means over, however, and the aggressive and busy Muciño battled her way back into it and got the upper hand at times in the later rounds.  Juarez used her ring experience to keep her cool as she moved well and used accurate counter-punching to escape with the split decision from a battle that was closer than suggested by (two of) the judges' scorecards.  Muciño fell to 15-2-1 (8 KO's) while Juarez improved to 33-5-3 (15 KO's).

Arely Muciño has been dubbed "Machine Gun" ("Ametralladora") by her fans in Monterrey, a name that she considers "not very attractive for a woman", but she admits that she has earned it.  It is certainly an apt description of a fast, versatile punching style that nobody, including triple world champion Kentikian in the two rounds they completed, has yet been able to control. 

Arely is a physical education teacher and is pursuing a degree in exercise science.
