(DEC 5) What could have been a total
disaster for the “Bad Blood” boxing card that was held last night at
the Isleta Casino and Resort, a warrior (and I mean that literally),
Victoria Cisneros stepped in and fought a 10-round bout against
Holly Holm. Little did Cisneros know that when she went to the
casino dressed in regular attire to see the three women bouts on the
card that she would actually be putting on boxing gear that another
boxer wore in the first fight, and fighting Holly Holm---after
Melissa Hernandez and her Team decided to bail out of the fight over
the wrapping of hands of Holm. That is a story in itself. [Fight

I am sure you will read a lot about the excuses offered as to why
Team Hernandez walked out on the fight.
But through this all….there was a bright light and
that light was Victoria Cisneros….Cisneros was in excellent
condition because she had had a fight scheduled that was
cancelled. Holm defeated Cisneros in a spirited 10-round bout.
In a post fight interview,
Cisneros said that she took the fight in the very last minutes
of this event because she "just loves to box." More to
follow soon on this event...
