West to defend her WBO Title: Fight will be televised
Source/press release (edited), promoter
August 14, 2011


(AUG 14) On August 20, 2011, WBO Bantamweight Champion, Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West, of Moreno Valley, California, 13-1-3, 4 KOs, will defend her title at the Black Pyramid Casino, in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico, against Jessica Villafranca, Nicolas Romero, Mexico, 12-2-0, 6 KOs), in a 10-round bout.

West’s WBO title defense will be featured on the Mexican television network, Televisa, at 8 p.m. CT. The fight card titled, “Triple Corona,” is presented by the Mexican boxing promotion, HG Boxing.

Kaliesha West, 23, makes her debut with HG Garcia Boxing on the August 20 fight card. In July of 2011, HG Boxing’s promoter, Hector Garcia, signed West to join his impressive promotional roster that includes female world champions, Ana Marie Torres and Arely Mucino.

West said, “I feel fortunate to be signed with an international boxing promoter who takes care of their female fighters. With HG Boxing, I feel that I am in great hands and that I made a great choice.”

Juan West expressed his excitement in bringing Team West to Mexico. “The people of Mexico are passionate about the sport of boxing. In Mexico, boxing is featured on television almost every Saturday and everyone watches. Kaliesha will positively represent her mother’s Mexican heritage.”

Kaliesha said, “Mexico is a country where the sport of boxing is very much appreciated. On August 20, not only will the boxing crowd who attends the fight get a chance to see my boxing skills, but a large television audience as well. I am looking forward to fighting before the Mexican fans that are supportive of women’s boxing. I plan to showcase my boxing talents in a spectacular way.”

Tickets for the fight can be purchased at the Black Pyramid Casino, in Manzanillo, Colima, Mexico. For any questions, please contact Lorin Chvotkin of Team West by email at Lbchoyas@yahoo.com or by phone at (240) 498-1478.

WBAN was also in contact with Kaliesha's promoter, Héctor García, via email. He gave permission to use the information he sent us to talk about the frustration of getting an opponent for West for this upcoming fight. Héctor stated the following:

"This is the debut for Kaliesha, in México and it was a little difficult to find someone for this fight. We tried to find some Mexican boxer for her, but we could not and we looked at many boxers, and no one would accept the fight. We had spoken to Yanina Acuña of Argentina, and they did say 'yes' but then later they declined the fight because she was ill. We then attempted to get Fredee Gonzalez, and it was the same situation. They first said, 'yes', but later declined. Finally we were able to get Jessica Villafranca, 12-2. She fights in different divisions because we know in women's boxing, it is hard to get a fight, so many times they accept fights in different weight classes.

Garcia added, "You know we support Women and try to give them the opportunity and we put Women's Boxing in a high level in México. I have six female Champions and they fight very often. And I now start with Kaliesha's boxing career in México, and I am sure she consolidate her career in México."   Best Regards, Héctor García
