Today at the Mayweather gym in Las Vegas I met up with former
WBC Featherweight Champ Melissa Hernandez.
Hernandez is fighting Layla McCarter in an
eight-round fight. This is
the third time that Hernandez will be fighting McCarter.
They are 1-1.
Hernandez said, "She's not fighting a little girl no more".
Hernandez expressed that she is very confident going into this
fight because she matured as a fighter and a person.
Hernandez in only her fourth fight took on veteran Kelsey
Jefferies 33-9 and fought a 10 round draw, in her seventh fight
she took on 12-2-3 Lisa Brown and won a 10 round unanimous
decision, 2007 was the first fight with McCarter for the GBU
Lightweight title, she didn't come out for the 9th round, a few
months later she had a rematch and won a majority decision
Some compare Hernandez's style to the late Macho Camacho, she
has swag and she is a showman.
Most of her 27 fights were against top competition, she went in
as an under dog and came out the winner.
