She has a record of 15-2-3 with five knockouts and has fought all over the world in places such as Canada and Panama in addition to fighting all over the United States.

She went 6-0-1 in her first seven bouts which included fighting for the IFBA Featherweight title in just her fourth bout against forty-two fight veteran Kelsey Jeffries.

That bout ended in a draw.

Two fights later she captured the WIBA Super Bantamweight title with a ten round unanimous decision over Lisa Brown.

Two fights later she captured the GBU Lightweight title with an eight round unanimous decision over Layla McCarter.

Hernandez captured the WIBA Super featherweight title with a ten round unanimous decision over Ela Nunez.

On August 14th, 2010 she won the Interim WIBA Jr. Lightweight title with a eight round unanimous decision over Victoria Cisneros.

Hernandez has won two in a row which includes traveling up to Edmonton, Alberta Canada to defeat hometown girl Jelena Mrdjenovich on June 24th, 2011.

Jeffrey of Brooklyn, NY has a perfect mark of 8-0 with one knockout.

She is known as a consummate boxer and is stepping up the competition with each fight.

She turned pro on January 31, 2008 with a four round unanimous decision over Karen Dulin.

Jeffrey has defeated three undefeated fighters in Angel Gladney (6-0-1); Carla Torres (1-0) and Elizabeth Sherman (3-0).

In the win over Gladney, Jeffrey registered her only knockout by stoppong the previously undefeated fighter in two rounds.

In her last bout, Jeffrey won her first of what looks to be many titles as she scored an six round unanimous decision over Ela Nunez to capture the NABF Super Featherweight title on August 19th in Dover, Delaware.

“I am very happy to have these girls signed with Fisticuffs”, said Brian Cohen, who manages both girls.

“Melissa is already established as the best female fighter in the world and I feel that Fisticuffs will help her get her to the next level”

“With Ronica it’s almost the same situation as she is ready for the big fights. She looked flawless in winning her title and I feel she has just scratched the surface of her potential”

“I am happy to announce the signings of these two fighters”, said Dave Escalet of Fisticuffs Promotions.

“These two girls have all the goods to not only win world championships but be the face of woman’s boxing and adding them to our roster only enhances Fisticuffs.”

“I hope to have big fights secured for each of them before the end of the year”
