(MAY 30) WBAN has received
a press release update on retired multi-world boxing champion
Holly Holm. In "summary" about the transformation into MMA
they said the following: "Fresquez Productions has
negotiated an aggressive four-fight deal with Legacy Fighting
Championship in order to further develop the mixed-martial-arts
career of 14-time, three-division world boxing champion
Holly Holm (L) is shown here
sparring with her Team Jackson-Wink stable-mate, UFC champion
Holm is scheduled to make her
Legacy debut on July 19, live on AXS TV, from Houston Arena
Theater in Houston, Texas."
"After speaking with all MMA companies," Holm's promoter Lenny
Fresquez announced, "we have selected Legacy because of its
commitment to help prepare Holly for a Super Fight, as well as
getting her the right television exposure."
"We are extremely excited to have someone as talented and of
such strong character as Holly," Legacy Fighting Championship
president Mike Maynard added. "We believe she embodies what
Legacy is all about."
The 31-year-old Holm has already had three MMA fights, winning
all three by technical knockout, and she is a member of the
famed Team Jackson-Wink, which boasts UFC superstar Jon "Bones"
Jones and Frank Mir, among its more notables.
"I'm excited for Holly and Legacy," Holm's longtime manager/head
trainer Mike Winkeljohn commented. "Holly Holm will dominate the
world of women's MMA and strike its fans with a fistful of awe."
