From the WEST Side!

From the SOUTH Side!


(SEPT 17)  Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West is about to find herself center ring at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on the under card of Shane Mosley vs. Sergio Mora. That is an exciting spot to be in for the young fighter.

“This is such an amazing opportunity for us. I know there are people that don’t like this match, but I don’t underestimate Angel Gladney. I am sure that this opportunity means as much to her as it does to me. And I am also sure, like me, that she is doing everything she can in training to prepare for this fight. This fight is important. We are on the under card of a major promotion at the Staple Center in Los Angeles fighting for a title! It is history in the making. It is my dream come true. I have waited a long time for this opportunity and it is finally here. I am grateful that Golden Boy Promotions chose me. I know I am a Champion….and I have worked hard for this.”

Kaliesha’s father and trainer Juan West knows that this is his daughter’s dream in the making. “Kaliesha works hard. I believe in her, not just because she is my daughter but because she puts the work in. Everyday she is in the gym, she is there polishing her skills, and she is skilled. This is Kaliesha’s time and it is the right place. She will go on to do greater things in this sport from here.”

Kaliesha is a student of the game and it is very clear that boxing is her passion. She is inspiring to watch. With every ounce of her being she wants to get it right. The relationship between Trainer and fighter is tight. The relationship between father and daughter is tighter. This relationship is the best I have seen in this business. Juan West is able to mix the tense regiment of training with a healthy dose of humor and produce a balanced and productive training program. He has taught Kaliesha what commitment is and he knows and respects that she is a grown woman. She on the other hand does not seem to mind being a daddy’s girl….but is well versed in the business of this sport. There is a trust that most would envy and a deep abiding love from her stable mates. “I love her said Kassim Ouma as he kissed her cheek, tell that to the people.” Sindy Amador, who will soon make her own pro-debut, called Kaliesha “inspiring.”

So like it or not, when Kaliesha West enters the ring on Saturday September 18th against Angel Gladney, something electrifying will no doubt take place and someone is going to get zapped!
