(AUG 12) Yesterday at the Hard
Rock Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada, photographer
Mary Ann Owen was shooting the Showtime boxing press conference,
for the anticipated boxing card to take place this Saturday
night at the Hard Rock. In the main event, Abner
Mares will be fighting Joseph Agbeko for the IBF and WBC Silver
Bantamweight Titles. On the undercard, Eric Morel will
fighting on the card.
On scene at the press conference
was up-and-coming boxing star TaTina "Lil Tyson" Anderson. (WBAN
can safely say Anderson is an up-and-coming star in the
sport---due to firsthand comments we receive about her and her
talent in the ring.)

Anderson did yesterday, what WBAN
has continued to advise women boxers to do and that is----ATTEND
PRESS CONFERENCES, whether you are on the card or not.
In fact, if you are a female boxer, and you live in the area, go
to any and all weigh-ins, press conferences, and mix and mingle
with the boxing folks on scene. Get your name out there
with them, and let them know who you are.

Mary Ann Owen told WBAN, 'We
introduced TaTina to many of the Champs and promoters."
"We like to take our fighters to meet everyone at the press
conferences to get them exposure, we also take them to the
fights, in this case Tina .. she met a lot of great people
including Al Bernstein & our friend the promoter Sampson
Lewkowicz. I think it is very important for the women boxers to
go to the fights and be seen, nothing better than good PR",
