June 21, 2004

Waco, TX (June 21, 2004) Laila Ali announced today that she would be fighting on the up-coming Mike Tyson undercard July 30th in Kentucky, to be televised
on Showtime. Apparently, it was also reported that Ali is "looking" for an opponent.

Being billed as the "big name undercard star" Laila Ali appears to be missing the

Martin/Rijker: The Only One
By Bernie McCoy
June 14, 2004

(JUNE 14) There is only one fight that will truly energize the sport of Women's boxing. The surprise, and maybe it's not a surprise at all, is that the bout is the same one, the only one, that would have energized the sport of Women's boxing five years ago. Christy Martin and Lucia Rijker need to step into the ring with each other. They may not be at the height of their skills as both were five years ago and it can be validly debated that there may be more talented female fighters on the Women's boxing scene today than Martin and Rijker but, these two names, these two fighters, remain the matchup that will attract interest like no other in the sport.  Full Story
