(MAY 8) MANASSAS, VA. Sensational
featherweight prospect Jennifer “THE BOLIVIAN QUEEN” Salinas
returned to action in a big way this past Saturday night, taking
home a third round knockout of Christina Leadbeater at the Patriot’s
Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
Following a two and half year absence after the birth of her now
thirteen month old son, John-Pablo, the 26 year old improved her
record to 10-1 with four knockouts.
Using crushing combinations and excellent defense, Salinas
controlled the majority of the action throughout the first two
rounds. Raising the stakes in the third stanza, Salinas stalked her
previously aggressive foe and dropped her with a crushing right hand
ending the fight at the 2:05 mark.
‘It felt great after the layoff
to get back in the ring and utilize so many new things that my
trainer, Daniel Attah and I have been working on in the gym. I’m
glad I was patient, didn’t rush things and took my time until
the knockout came” said Salinas . “She was very aggressive in
the first two rounds which allowed me to work on my defense and
Salinas plans a quick return to the ring; “I’m in terrific shape
and I’d like to be back in the ring quickly. This was a great
start, but there’s still much work to be done. I’ll take a
couple of days off and then it’s back in the gym with Daniel.”
Salinas also mentioned her co-trainer Lawrence Jones and
sponsors LA BOXING and Max Muscle, all of whom helped prepare
her for the fight.
