(DEC 1) Today the weigh-in
took place for the upcoming "World Dominance" Boxing Card,
that will take place tomorrow night at the Route 66
Casino/Hotel, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The mainliner
will feature Holly Holm vs. Anne Sophie Mathis for the IBA
and WBAN World welterweight title.

In what is considered one of the
top women's title fights in the sport---WBAN decided to
celebrate this history making fight, by giving back to the long
and forgotten retired boxers of the sport. We ran a Fundraiser,
to raise money for the Retired Boxers Foundation, a non-profit
organization. At this weigh-in a check for $1,500 was
presented to Alex Ramos, President of the Retired Boxers
Foundation, and Jacquie Richardson, Executive Director of the
Retired Boxers Foundation.

Lastly, I was thrilled to see
retired boxer Stephanie Jaramillo at the weigh-in, with her
husband and son. It is always a pleasure to see women
boxers who support other boxers, and attend these events---and
might I add, wearing a WBAN T-Shirt!
