(JAN 16) Tonight at the Laredo
Energy Arena, in Laredo, Texas, current world champion Eileen
Olszewski will be defending her IFBA Flyweight title.
At the Scales yesterday - Olszewski
- 110.6 Fuentes 111 lbs.
Fuentes and Olszweski met last
September in Brooklyn, NY, in a tough 8round fight that went the
distance. Olszweski won in a draw.
Laredo’s Fuentes (3-6-4) was brought into the 2014 fight last
minute, having less than two full weeks to prepare. Yet she was
able to go toe-to-toe with the champion, something Olszweski
(9-5-3) certainly has in the back of her mind as she prepares
for this fight. With both fighters having more than two months
to prepare, fans will see an entirely different battle.
“Laredo has proven to be an exceptional fight town,” said IFBA
President Judy Kulis. “These two fighters have styles that match
up well and will put on a show for the fans in attendance. This
is one you don’t want to miss.”
Promoted by Triple A Promotions, the IFBA championship bout will
be part of a packed Fight Fest 10 card.
Yesterday on the Scales: At
the 1st Draft Sport Bar in Laredo TX, challenger Mandy Fuentes
was first on the scale at 111 pounds. The defending Champion
Eileen Olszewski left her hometown of NY to put her title on the
line showed she was ready by hitting the scales at 110.6.
Supervisor Kim Messer-Caminschi in attendance.
