(APR 30) 'Australian author and
amateur boxer Mischa Merz is poised to make her return to the ring
after seven years but needs a female masters opponent in
the 138lb division. There is no masters division in Australia and
like so many women Mischa was a late starter and is keen to take
advantage of the opportunity to fight again without turning
professional and making a career out of it. '
Mischa told WBAN, "This is a great opportunity for me because I
always felt my competitive years were cut short because of my age
and now that's no obstacle. But it
seems it is still hard to find a match, which is a bit frustrating,
especially since I have to travel so far from home to fight."
"Please contact Gleason's gym's matchmaker Angela Querol if you know
anyone who is interested (718) 797 2872", added Mischa.
Meanwhile, Mischa's book 'Bruising - a boxer's story' is due for
release in June.' Here is a link to the new version of
my book Bruising if you want to update it.
