(JULY 22) Atlanta Corporate Fight Night returns on Thursday, August 8 for its seventh evening of pugilism and philanthropy. The unique, elegant evening, founded in 2010 and promoted by retired female world champion Terri Moss is called a “black tie, black eye affair. Corporate professionals, both men and women, from the Atlanta area train and participate in a sanctioned amateur boxing match, going toe to toe for their chosen charity.

“Our female fighters are some very fierce competitors,” said Terri, who trains a majority of the ACFN fighters at her gym, Buckhead Fight Club. “It's an amazing process to watch as they endure training, go through all the highs and lows fighters experience, then face their opponents on fight night. Watching them evolve into fighters and get totally out of their personal and professional comfort zone is a very life changing experience,” Terri said.

Four women will step through the ropes on August eighth, all vying for a win for personal gain and for their charities. Who are these fierce fighters? And what brought them to Atlanta Corporate Fight Night? Meet the female fighters of ACFN7!

Makeba Reed Johnson


Known as the “Modern Day Warrior”, Makeba is 44 years of age, from Atlanta, Georgia, and a Wellness, Physical Education & CPR/AED Instructor for Spelman College. The charity she's fighting for is Mental Health America. After witnessing Atlanta Corporate Fight Night 6 in January 2013, Makeba felt ready for the challenge. “I got into boxing after attending ACFN 6. I was very impressed,” she said. “Terri Moss has an excellent reputation. I'm a fitness trainer and I know that women and men learn differently. I'm impressed by the fact that Terri continues to produce so many great female boxers and has so many females who would be intimidated by the sport, taking the chance to train, and ultimately compete”. Follow Makeba's journey to ACFN 7 on Twitter, @makebareed or on Facebook, Makeba Reed-Johnson

Jean Frantom


In the ring, she's “Mean Jean” Frantom, a 39 year old native of Fort Worth, Texas, and from 8 AM to 5 PM, Jean is employed in Human Resources for UPS. Initially Jean sought out boxing to get in shape, but now admits, it's a challenge she's going striving to conquer. “This has become a goal,” Jean said. “about meeting challenges and achieving those goals. I keep telling myself that 'Pain is temporary, Pride is forever'. The charity that Jean is fighting for is Chris Kids, an Atlanta agency that focuses on healing children, families and building the community.

Crys Fagan


Crys is 32 years old, from Dallas, Texas, and a graduate student at Emory University in Atlanta. Her field of study is PhD in Biochemistry, Cell and Developmental Biology. When Crys steps in the ring for ACFN7, she is fighting for The Mad Housers, an Atlanta based organization devoted to providing shelter for homeless families and individuals. Boxing started as a fun workout for Crys, but found it quickly changed her life. “Boxing taught me self confidence, and that it is OK to stand up for myself,” she said. “I want to participate in ACFN7 to show others that it is OK to be a strong female who doesn't always follow society's rules of what is and isn't acceptable.”

Felicia White

“Notorious” Felicia White is 34 years old, and originally from Augusta, Georgia. She is the Director of National Field Training for Church's Chicken, and has made her charity the Church's Partners Foundation. This charity provides support and assistance to employees and franchisees of Church's Chicken, their families and communities. While balancing a busy work schedule, Felicia began boxing for exercise, and says, “I got hooked on the sport aspect.” She also attended ACFN 6, which really peaked her interest. “I attend the last event,” Felicia said. “It was so much fun! The fighters were loved by the crowd. This is a top notch event, and I could not wait to be a part of it. An added bonus was this allowed me the opportunity to raise money for a good cause!”

Women's fights are the highlight of any boxing card, professional or amateur, and Atlanta Corporate Fight Night 7 is no exception. When Makeba Reed “The Modern Day Warrior meets “Mean Jean” Frantom in the middle of the ring on August 8, prepare for fireworks. Expect a toe to toe battle when Crys Fagan and “Notorious” Felicia White touch gloves. See the excitement first hand on Thursday, August 8 at 595 North Event Center.
