(JAN 15) WBAN received a press
release yesterday, with news that Mary McGee, 15-0 (9KO), will be
fighting Jessica Mohs, on January 23, 2009, at the Radisson
Hotel, at the Star Plaza, in Merrillville, Indiana.
McGee's last fight was on August 3, 2008, while Mohs last fought on
September 11th, 2008, but both feel that this fight is shaping up to
be a card-stealer. "If she comes in shape, it's going to be a long
night," said McGee of Mohs.
"(Mohs) has been in the ring with some of the best and I'm expecting
this to be a great fight," McGee added. Mohs has fought the best
woman in the world, including Mia St. John, Jessica Rakoczy and
Terri Lynn Cruz in her last fights.
Mohs is a 5'3" Oklahoma City, OK resident, that has a 7-19-2 (2 KOs)
record, but she has made it clear that the record better not fool
the 22 year-old McGee. "Well I'm a hard hitter," said Mohs of what
McGee can expect. "I feel I'm in great shape and I'm looking to go
out there and have some fun."
There will be seven bouts on the card, and it is promoted by One In
a Million, Inc.
McGee enters her bout with Mohs as the unblemished NABC Lightweight
World Champion, but the Gary native is also carrying a heavy heart
following the recent passing of another World Champion Giselle
Salandy 17-0 (6 KOs). "I have the ultimate respect for her and I
looked up to her," said McGee of Salandy.
McGee will be paying tribute to Salandy in her fight against Mohs.
"This fight is for her and her family, this is one fighter that I
had really respected and there are not many female fighters that I
do respect the way I do Jisselle."
Jimmy "The Fighting School Teacher" Holmes will also be making his
return to the ring following a minor surgery, along with some of the
brightest and talented fighters in the world. Doors open at 7 p.m.,
while the first fight is scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel
