(JAN 27) WBAN has been on a
mission this year, to contact many of the female boxers to
get the latest updates on what they are doing inside and outside
Now usually we know what
multi-world champion Melissa "Huracan Shark" Hernandez is up
too---but as of late she was just a little bit "too" low key, so
WBAN went a huntin' for her to find out just what she has been
Hernandez told WBAN the following:
"I've been trying
to stay busy with these long lay offs between fights.
I'm living now in South Beach, Miami, Florida.
I'm training out of the famous 5th St. gym. I'm also training a
young stable of male fighters with only one female that is set
to have her pro debut soon.
I've decided to not train anymore 'womyn' in my weight classes
that are ranked due to the lack of women wanting to fight me.
I've been keeping in probably the best shape of my whole career by
doing all these races with all kinds of crazy obstacles.
The races have become a very good method for my training and to
spice up the time between fights.
I've also taken up paddle boarding and biking.
My newly added methods for training have really done great for
my love and conditioning of boxing.
I'm looking to pick up the pace in the ring this year I'm
looking to keep fighting at 126 lb. But I'll always keep jumping
To add----I'm back to managing myself and handling all my own
This year marks my decade in boxing.
It's been an awesome 10 years. Six world titles and all the great names to record. I have nothing
but to thank boxing and most of all
