(NOV 18) Eileen "The
Hawaiian Mongoose" Olszewski will defend her IFBA World
Flyweight Championship on
January 16, 2015 against Christina Fuentes. The fight will
take place in Fuentes' hometown of Laredo, Texas. It will be the
first Female World Championship to be held in Laredo, Texas and
is being promoted by Triple A Promotions.
Olszewski is a three-time world champion. This will be her 9th
world title fight in only her 18th professional fight.
The "Hawaiian Mongoose" was only 4-0 when she fought for first
world title. She fought the WBC Flyweight
Champion Stefania Bianchini (16-2-2 ) and earned a hard fought
draw in the champion's home country of Italy.
In February of 2008, her next fight
at the age of 39, Eileen fought WBAN's #1 ranked flyweight in
the world Elena "Baby Doll" Reid. Reid, at
the time was the reigning IFBA and WIBA Flyweight champion
defending her WIBA title. Olszewski won the title by a
10-round majority decision, winning her first world title.
Olszewski later added the GBU World title and on September 25,
2013, she earned her third World Championship with a brutal TKO
win over Patricia Alcivar capturing her current IFBA title.
Earlier this month, Bernard Hopkins lost all his World Titles
at the age of 49. This loss left Olszewski as the oldest current
World Champion at 46 years young!
Christina Fuentes is only 22 years old. This will be her second try
at a World Championship . Despite the 24 year age difference, these two ladies have a lot in common. Both Women have a history
of fighting the best fighters in the world and do not back down
from a challenge. They both have the distinction of never being
knocked down or stopped in a fight. They are both true
professionals who have mutual respect for each other!
