(MAR 29) You
wrote a response
to WBAN, in regards to
on the Jelena Mrdjenovich-Biggers bout, and we would like to
address some of those comments.
You referred to WBAN’s article as making “ridiculous comments.”
Was it “ridiculous” for the Canadian news source, the
Sun, to state that
the bout was “One-sided"? Didn't your own
trainer/manager of Team Mrdjenovich tell the Edmonton Sun that the
fight was like "target Practice"? Making that comment in the
news article would lead most to believe that the fight was not
Speaking of “ridiculous”---was it not ridiculous that you stated in
your response that if WBAN, puts up $20,000 that Jelena would fight
in the United States. Why would a news source for women’s boxing
put up purse money?
You talked about “records.” Anyone who has any knowledge about this
sport knows that records can be very misleading. Many of the best
women boxers in the world have checkered records. Why? Because many
of those boxers take risks, and happen to be some of the toughest
warriors in the sport. They will take fights anywhere, anytime.
Keeping that in mind---women boxers with pristine records, may not
necessarily be the best and/or the most skillful.
Lastly, you stated that you would have no problem bringing the top
ranked women boxers to Canada that we mentioned in our ratings. How
about making it simple: bring the TOP fighter, Chevelle Hallback and
fight the very top ranked boxer. Hallback has already said that she
is ready and willing.
CHALLENGES FROM TEAM HALLBACK,
MCCARTER, AND LARACUENTE
To Team Mrdjenovich: In your
recent letter to WBAN you stated that your WBC/WIBF Champion, Jelena
Mrdjenovich will fight ANY worthy contender. In truth there is only
1 worthy contender and that is Chevelle Hallback. When Jelena fought
and won the titles last November she was ranked #5 by the WBC.
Chevelle was at that time ranked #1 and she still is ranked #1 by
both the WBC and the WIBF. She is also ranked #1 by the WBA & NABF
and is the present IBA & WIBA world champion. She is in fact
Jelena's MANDATORY defense. Chevelle is packed and ready to go to
Jelena's hometown of Edmonton to take what is rightfully hers, the
WBC & WIBF titles. So the Gauntlet has been thrown, will Team
Mrdjenovich live up to it's statements and fight the best there is
or are they willing to give up the belts to avoid fighting Chevelle
Hallback, the BEST 130 pound female fighter in the world.

To Team Mrdjenovich: First of all, I did NOT have a "sore
hand" as everybody but Team Mrdjenovich seems to understand. You
only have to look at the x-ray. Secondly, we are all aware of your
careful opponent selections for Jelena, but remember that you did
make a mistake once when I kicked her butt in Edmonton. No
disrespect intended, but I cannot describe it any other way. (I
weighed 129 by the way as Jelena weighed 134). I do not deny losing
the second fight, although I fully attribute that to being injured
for the second half. We cannot fairly speculate what would have
happened otherwise in that fight. The facts are this: Jelena and I
are 1-1 officially, in her hometown. Team Mrdjenovich needs to
forget Tracy Byrd, Belinda Laracuente, and everyone but Chevelle
Hallback and myself. To be the best, Jelena must rise to the
occasion like she did in our second fight, and step up to Round
Three of McCarter/Mrdjenovich. I previously offered Team Mrdjenovich
much more than I made for the rematch in Edmonton to fight me in Las
Vegas. They never responded to the challenge. Could it be that with
two arms, I am too much for them? Let's find out with a good
legitimate fight offer: Team Mrdjenovich claims that they will not
fight in the U.S. for less than $20,000.
Offer by Manager Luis Tapia: “We want Jelena Mrdjenovich in June in
the United States to fight Layla McCarter. Each girl makes a mere
$5,000, but the winner takes an additional $20,000. That is $25,000
for the winner.”
”If you are so confident that Jelena is the best, come here, kick my
butt like you say you did last time, and make $25,000 free and
clear”, Added McCarter.
To Team Mrdjenovich: Get a life - To make things real and
short, Jelena Mrdjenovich Don't get all mouth happy talking trash.
Belinda Laracuente has never been off her feet let alone Kayoed.
Don't get gassed about your win over Biggers. Belinda will put her
purse on the line to fight you. When she wins just give your belts
up like a lady. But... When she Kayo's you give us you purse and the
belts. By the way Jelena Mrdjenovich you're not worth 20k your a 5k
or less fighter. We saw you fight and quite frankly you suck. So in
words of a New Yorican. "Traelo Gringa" (bring it chump").
