(JAN 9) The International Female
Boxing Association (IFBA) is bringing in 2015 by ringing the
bell on a Texas-sized women’s title fight! Christina “Mandy”
Fuentes looks for redemption against current champion Eileen
Olszewski for the IFBA World Flyweight title. The two square off
Friday, January 16 at the Laredo Energy Arena in Laredo, Texas.
Fuentes and Olszweski met last
September in Brooklyn, NY, in a tough 8round fight that went the
distance. Olszweski won in a split decision, which only tells
half the story.
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.
