By Team Pereira
July 26, 2004

(JULY 26)  WBAN has received a response to a comment by Mia St. John in regards to Pereira turning down a fight with her for the July 29th card in California.  Team Pereira said, "Mia St. John is mistaken by implying Olivia Pereira is not willing to fight her. At this stage in Pereira's career four round fights, especially those given with ten days notice are a waste of time and talent. Experienced boxers, who have put the time in at the gym have no business making a career out of four rounders even if their careers are winding down. Mia has turned down challenge after challenge, opportunity after opportunity. She even shot down the chance to rematch at the Staples Center on the Klitschko undercard. Trust us if she offered a 'real' fight there'd be one!
