(MAY 30) New Mexico’s top female
fighter, Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm will get into the ring
with Brazil’s Female World Champion Duda “The Cameleon” Yankovich on
June 5th, 2009.
Holm’s victory over tough Myriam Lamare in January of this year has
not deterred Holm from challenging another world champion. Holm, who
has not lost a fight since 2004, is relentless in protecting her
WIBA world championship title in the welterweight division. Holm’s
opponent, Duda Yankovich (a native Serbian, but resident of Brazil)
has an unblemished record of 11-0 (5 ko’s).
An explosive semi-main event includes Albuquerque’s own Mike
Alderete 6-4-1 (3ko’s) against Port Charlotte, Florida’s Theo Kruger
9-8-1 (3 ko’s).These exciting cruiserweights are ready to battle it
out come fight night.
The under-card will prove to be
action packed. Hot prospect, Angelica Chavez is getting ready to
display her talent against Ontario, California’s Gloria Salas.
Local talent will be displayed as Albuquerque’s own Michael
Brooks will be making his pro-debut against Marciano Wilson of
Albuquerque. Antonio Zamora looks forward to turning pro against
Manuelo Otero of Albuquerque, as well.
