WBAN talks with Ada "The Ace" Velez About Her Latest Fight Offer....

(SEPT 26)  This week I spoke with multi-world champion Ada "The Ace" Velez who has been one of the most fierce warriors in the sport.   I first met Velez, when she took a fight in Austin, Texas, where she fought Mary Ortega for a world title---and won.

Velez wanted WBAN and boxing fans to know the latest on a potential fight offer that she recently received. 

Velez told WBAN, "To those of you who do not know what is going on 'really' between me and Marilyn Hernandez.  I was offered a purse that was only a third of what I had been offered before with the same promoter on another card with another opponent.  This potential fight offer was for a world title---AND going into my opponent's hometown."

"I lost two fights in a row, but I have had six prior wins, winning the IBF and IBA world title belts, not having a loss since 2007.  My boxing record is 20-5-3 (6KO)."

"Being offered $2500 to fight a 10-round world title fight is ridiculous.  I do nothing for female boxing to take such a low purse anywhere.  I was offered more money to fight a six-rounder with another fight offer and would have done it if the opponent wasn't heavier than me."

"I have lost five fights in my whole boxing career that dates back to 1999, and I always bounce back, and everyone knows that.   I cannot believe the disrespect that female boxers get in this sport.  I will fight Marilyn ANY DAY--I will fight ANY day in fact-----but $2,500-hell no!"

"I want WBAN to put this out there, I am very tired of these promoters that can get you a good match--but very little pay," added Velez.
