(MAY 23) Diane Lee Fischer-Cristiano, President, Dee Lee Promotions, conducted a press conference, on Wednesday, at the Don Coqui restaurant in downtown White Plains NY, detailing the seven bout boxing card scheduled for Friday May 24 at the nearby Westchester County Center. The ten round main event matches undefeated Ronica Jeffrey and veteran Olivia Gerula for the IWBF super featherweight title.

Gerula (13-13-2), who has been campaigning as a professional for sixteen years, views the bout as a possible turning point in a career during which she has been in with some of the top fighters in the sport: Jelena Mrdjenovich, twice, Frida Wallberg, twice and Kathy Collins. The Jeffrey bout represents a reunion of sorts for Gerula and Dee Lee Promotions, which promoted the Gerula/Collins bout in April 1999 in Atlantic City. "Ronica is a great boxer and I'm happy to have the opportunity to fight her. I'm likewise happy to be reunited with Diane, who is a great supporter of our sport. If I can win this one, I'd like to try for Kina Malpartida's WBA title."

For Jeffrey (12-0-0) in addition to the chance to extend her winning streak against a quality opponent, Friday's bout signals a return to her geographic roots. Following her professional debut in April 08 in the Bronx and a subsequent bout in Monticello, NY, the Brooklyn fighter has campaigned, primarily, in Delaware, defeating, in recent bouts, regarded featherweights, Jackie Trivilino, Lindsay Garbatt and Natasha Spence. "It's always great to fight close to home and I look forward to fighting Olivia who has been in with some of the best in the division."

The Friday night card marks a professional boxing return to the Westchester County Center after an absence of several years. The eighty-three year old building's boxing legacy traces back to the glory days of New York boxing and neighborhood fight clubs such as Sunnyside Garden, St. Nick's Arena and Eastern Parkway Arena.
