Kaliesha's Denmark Experience
by Lori Steinhorst
March 31, 2010


(MAR 31) When Kaliesha "Wild Wild" West left the United States for her title fight with Anita Christensen at the Arena Midt, in Kjellerup, Denmark, she fully intended to bring the title home. However, that would not be the case. West and Christensen battled through 10 rounds only to see the fight end in a Majority Draw. "I kept waiting for them to call my name as they made the announcement in Danish. When the referee raised both of our hands in the air and I heard the word Draw, my heart sank. I was sure I had been the stronger, dominant fighter. I was disappointed....but I am not discouraged."

"I trained hard for the fight and I believe that I did everything right in training and everything right in the fight. Maybe when I have a chance to review the fight, I will see something I may need to do differently, but right now I am convinced that I put everything I had into that performance. I know that I am World Champion material. I love boxing and I work hard at it. My dad is an excellent trainer and I am so grateful to have his experience and guidance. I know I couldn't have a better team in my corner, better friends standing beside me or better fans supporting me.

"Denmark was a beautiful country and the people were so kind. My whole team was treated very well and there is nothing negative I can say about my experience there. The people of Denmark are humble and peaceful, I felt very comfortable. It is the kind of place that makes you feel at home. I was sad that we did not get a chance to see more of the country. I really would have loved that. I was impressed with how well they conserve energy, it was just amazing"

"I am looking forward to another title opportunity....either a rematch with Anita or an opportunity here at home. I feel blessed to have had the chance to go to Denmark. It was my first time overseas. Even though the fight did not turn out the way I had hoped it would, the blessing of experiencing such a wonder place and people far outweighs the disappointment. Denmark will always have a special place in my heart."

"I want everyone to know that this experience is not in any way a deterrent for me. I WILL BE A WORLD CHAMPION......it is my destiny. Boxing is like math...there are plenty of formulas to learn. If you don't use the right formula, you don't get the right solution. Well, I am here to tell you....I have plenty of formulas, and I know my equations!"

There is no doubt in my mind that Kaliesha will reach her goal. She is talented and committed. Boxing is her passion. She has a clear understanding of what it takes to be a complete boxer and works diligently to hone her skills. Kaliesha West represents the best of women in boxing. It is very clear through my conversation with her that she is able to look at this decision (Draw) as a lesson, grow from the experience and look forward. She does indeed have the mind, the attitude and the skills of a champion, the only thing missing is the belt.
