Susie Ramadan and Shannon O'Connell to Visit The Big Apple
Source/WBAN News
August 8, 2015

(AUGUST 8)  Former WBC, IBF and WBF  World Bantamweight Champion Susie Ramadan and WIBA World Super Bantamweight Champion Shannon O'Connell will be visiting The Big Apple from September 3-9.  This visit for O'Connell will be just prior to heading to Toronto, Canada where she will be fighting Canadian Sandy Tsagouris in an eight-round non-title bout on the undercard of the PBC's WBC Light Heavyweight title bout between Adonis Stevenson vs. Tommy Karpency at the Ricoh Coliseum.

Their visit to New York City together with promoter Lynden Hosking, of Hosking Promotions, Bendigo, Victoria, Australia, has a purpose, WBAN was told.

With a record of 23-2-0, and after losing her title WBC title in a close decision rematch to Mexico's Yazmin Rivas, on October 25, 2014, Susie Ramadan is said to have adjusted her regimen and has joined Hosking Promotions, with hope of recapturing her title and continuously competing.

"We are headed to New York City and look forward to visiting Gleason's Gym and catching up with WBC Female International Super Bantamweight Champion Heather Hardy, Former WBC Female Super Flyweight Champion Alicia Ashley, WIBA, UBF Champion Ronica Jeffrey, Melissa St. Vil, flyweight champion Keisha McLeod, and Sonya Lamonokis," Susie said.

She continues; "if Cindy Serrano and her sister WBO Female World Lightweight Champion Amanda Serrano are around it would be awesome to meet them too. Being able to meet with these champions and others is going to be an honor, especially because some of these ladies are champions and, potential opponents for me, so yea, this trip is going to be awesome. As for a Trilogy match between Yazmin Rivas and me, I would like that a lot but on common ground, in Australia, New York or Las Vegas," Susie said.

Shannon O'Connell tells WBAN that she is also excited about this trip for two reasons; the first, being able to come to NYC and meet other female boxing champions and possibly train, and the other is her bout against Sandy Tsagouris in Canada.

"I'm am so blown away over what has happened in the past two weeks. My promoter Lynden Hosking and my current Advisor Eddie Montalvo, informed me of the trip to NYC. They have also been working on a couple of fights that I am looking forward to. I know for sure that I will be fighting on September 11, 2015, in Toronto, Canada against Sandy Tsagouris, in an eight-round non-title bout, and that I may have a November 21st date in Australia," Shannon told WBAN.

She continues; "I really wanted to fight Heather Hardy on August 1, 2015, on the Garcia-Malinaggi under card but it didn't happen. Maybe now that I'm going to New York, and might meet Heather, we can create the buzz necessary so that she and I can fight sometime in January 2016, in New York City or Australia, but I prefer New York," Shannon says giggling.

WBAN will be keeping a close watch on their visit to the U.S., and on the fight between O'Connell vs Tsagouris.
