(JUNE 2) WBO Bantamweight Champion, Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West (Moreno Valley, California, 13-1-2, 4
KOs), will defend her title in a 10-round title bout against Ava
“Lady of Boxing” Knight (Chico, California, 6-1-2, 3KOS), on
Saturday, June 18, 2011, at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, in
Pico Rivera, California.
In this highly anticipated
rematch, West will look to correct the only loss of her career,

round bout. Both fighters will meet at 118 pounds.
West’s title defense against Knight will be featured as the
boxing main event on International Fight Showdown’s fight card,
titled, “IFS8: Mass Destruction,” which also will feature top
