(OCT 11) Once again,
Chevelle Hallback (28-7-2) will travel outside the United States
to challenge another elite female fighter, Myriam Lamare (19-3)
for the vacant IBF junior welterweight world title on November
5th at the Palais des Sports de Toulon, in Toulon, France.
Chevelle has traveled this road
before, and accepts it as the reality of her career. “I've got
to go far and wide to fight the best,” she said.
“I am so excited about getting
back into the ring and fighting in France is a plus! I've fought
in Canada, Japan, Denmark, and now France. I am on my way to
being internationally known with fans all over the world--LET'S
GET IT. I need to bring this title home, and when I do,
create some more opportunities,” added Hallback.
Bill Calogero, Chevelle's advisor is in agreement. “Chevelle
fighting in France is a means to an end,” he said. “In the long
run, we'd like a rematch with Cecilia Braehkus and so we have to
go to France and win, to make that happen. After that, I'm not
ruling out another fight, a third trip New Mexico. It's too bad
we have to globetrot for the great fights, but Chevy is a
warrior and never has or never will dodge her opposition.”
Chevelle arrives in Marseille, France October 29, and is in the
midst of training at her gym, Fists of Steel Boxing Academy, In
Tampa, Fl. “I'm doing the work, and am ready to go and get the
reward,” she said.
