Kina Malpartida was born March 25, 1980 in Lima. Peru. She is the daughter of his Susy Dyson , international top model , and Oscar -Chino ” Malpartida , three-time national from South (1972, 1908 and 1981). He has a younger brother named Alvaro who is a professional surfer (two-time champion of the ‘Cabo Blanco Tube Riders ‘ 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 championship). She grew up in Punta Hermosa with her family where she was a neighbor and friend of Sofía Mulanovich (2004 World Surf Champion). his parents were friends of his and he studied at Roosevelt College.

He had very good aptitudes for sports. At the age of six her mother took her to do acrobatic gymnastics, dance and she decided to practice Karate (she became a brown belt). At school he excelled in soccer (he played with the men), basketball and tennis. At thirteen he began to practice Surfing, competing for the first places with Sofía Mulanovich , the finals were always between them and they won each other. She didn’t take it that seriously. it was more ” Soul surfer ” ( surfer of the soul). I never really liked the competition in the South, it was not my passion, I did it because everyone encouraged me and gave me clothes and boards, but the idea of ​​competing was what I hated the most.

When he was 15 years old, his father died in an accident. jumping parachute. At the age of 19 he left Surfing and travels to Australia with his brother to study, moving to Queensland, managing restaurants and cooking. I chose that career because my family was always linked to restaurants, my dad owned the Mediterráneo Chicken and El Salto del Fraile. Also, then I had the vision that food in Peru was going to develop a lot and. look at you. I got it right . Source:

At 23 he started boxing. after a friend took her to the gym. he liked it and stayed. He made his debut in 2003. After his first three fights he saved money by being a lifeguard and washing boats and went to the USA. California. In 2004 he won his first title the -Pan Pacific Lightweight Championship ”. In November 2005 he returned to Australia to obtain citizenship because he had problems obtaining a visa to go to the USA, he returned settling in Los Angeles , California. In 2006 her manager extorted her by withholding her papers in California. since she no longer wanted to fight there. He trains at the Maywood Boxing Gym California and in 2007 he was offered a fight for the world title but he preferred to wait. My dream regarding boxing is to become a world champion and be the best fighter

She has represented Peru in Surfing by competing in the 1996 and 2006 ISA World Championships, both in Huntington Beach, USA, obtaining in both the 13th position. For 2006 she replaced a selected one that due to lack of funds could not travel (she lives in Califomia ), she had not competed for eight years and entered the sea a couple of times a week, however she did it in the best way putting a lot of heart as she says.

On February 21, Kina , alias -dinamita ”, 28 years old, with 1.77 m., 58 kg. and with twelve fights (9 won, 3 by KO, and 3 losses), he faced the favorite, champion and local Maureen Shea , at Madison Square Garden (the most important boxing scene in the world), in New York (se known as ° EI greatest in the world arena “) and 50000 viewers watching live. She falls in the first round, then recovers and ends up knocking out her rival (she had never been knocked out or lost in her sports history) with her best shot (her forehand).

Despite working in a clothing store to cover his expenses, not having a representative, press officer, support from the IPD (Peruvian Institute of Sport) sponsors or others and attending the fight only with his brother ( Alvaro ) and his American coach (Charles Huerta) became the first Peruvian to become world champion in Boxing, by obtaining the 2009 WBA (World Boxing Association) world title in the Super Feather category. The only Peruvian fighters Those who had fought for the world boxing title without achieving it had been Orlando Romero, Oscar Rivadeneyra and Luis Ibáñez, all in 1983. Always having the desire and not letting that desire disappear from your head, is something very special. The opportunity arises because it belongs to you and it is your destiny, because you did not let go of that thought and that is what happened, because so much has happened to me (manager who scammed her, visa and money problems). And yet, as a result of everything, the moment appeared, that is what it has cost, it has cost a lot. It is not the training, the training is the easy thing, if I had a person who chooses the fights for me and tells me what to do, a manager and a good person who is guiding me well, it is easy. But I do not have that and I have never had that, I have had people who have led me in bad ways and have hurt me but, nevertheless, I have distanced myself from those people and now I have met very good people in Maywood , California and they have helped me so much, so much, so much… thank God I have achieved this, they have guided me a lot.

To overcome the contempt of her rival’s representative in the title fight who told her that she was far below the level of the former world champion (she was telling her that they put her on a ‘package’), training professionally while she had to work, not having sponsors or representatives and to recover from a Knock Down (knocked down) in the first round, to name a few examples. Despite all the aforementioned, she ends up knocking out her rival in the tenth and final round, becoming a world champion.
