Cooper Begins 2009 in the Hunt for a World Title!
February 6, 2009

     
   
   
   
   

(FEB 6) Climbing through the ropes for the time in 2009, former world champion, Melinda Cooper, 19-0 (11KOs), is determined to make this trip to the ring count more than ever before.

Cooper will not just be getting something she has so desperately wished for and diligently worked towards for more than six years, but she will also be facing a tough hurdle in Monica Lovato, 12-1 (4KOs), when they square off for the IFBA Bantamweight World Title.

The 10 round championship bout is being billed Rock in the Box and will be staged at The Theater at Planet Hollywood, in Las Vegas, on Saturday, March 21st. This site was formerly the Aladdin Hotel and Casino and was, coincidentally, the location where Cooper made her professional debut against Annalisa Middleton on March 23rd, 2002. This should be quite the homecoming for Cooper.

Lovato is currently the NABF and former IBA Bantamweight title holder. Cooper, on the other hand, is finally getting the title shot she has been waiting for, so this match-up is destined to be an all-out war for the coveted belt. Lovato has proven to be wildly popular with New Mexico boxing fans and will bring a wealth of experience, a legion of supporters and unwavering determination with her when she hits the Vegas strip.

The bout will be one of many featured in a night full of exciting boxing action promoted by Roy Englebrecht Promotions. Englebrecht and his team have gained widespread recognition and praise as California's third largest boxing promotions company and hold the distinction as having one of the longest running and most successful club shows in the country. Englebrecht's Battle in the Ballroom shows, hosted at the Irvine Marriott Hotel are in their 22nd consecutive year.

The Cooper versus Lovato match up has all of the makings of a sensational fight. It consists of two talented boxers who are determined to give boxing fans their monies worth every time out. Neither fighter is afraid to go toe-to-toe and give it their all for every single round of nonstop action. Only one will emerge a champion, but both will have earned the right to say "I'm a professional fighter."
