(NOV 4) The always
entertaining and outspoken Melissa "Huracan" Hernandez has done
it again! Before the WIBA and the "President" Ryan Wissow
strips her for not defending her title against a 1-0 fighter,
Hernandez has decided to not only vacate the title but
physically toss them in the dumpster.
stated, "It's a slap in the face to the sport that I love. It's
a slap in the face to the women who bust their butts everyday
in the gym."
The only way Valentina Shevchenko should be involved in a title
fight is if she bought a ticket."
[Hernandez is referring to the upcoming WIBA world title
bout on December 9, in Peru, that will have a multi-world
champion fighting against Shevchenko]
"I am so sick of
these sanctioning bodies doing this and its time someone stands
up for woman's boxing," added Hernandez.
Hernandez manager added. "Melissa is a true pioneer in the
sport. She doesn't need a title belt around her waist. She is
the most avoided fighter in women's boxing and I support her
decision not to sell out".
