5'2" bantamweight Avery Ann Vilche, of Red Bluff, California, had her professional debut in boxing on September 28, 2012, when she fought at the Quiet Cannon, in Montecello, California.  She won her first fight against Guadalupe Gutierrez with a four-round majority decision.

Vilche is new on the scene for fighting as a pro in boxing---but she is far from being new as a fighter. 

Vilche told WBAN, "I have always loved boxing.  I used to spar with my older brothers all the time. They would beat the crud out of me.   I got used to losing until one day a neighbor boy my age put the gloves on with me. I bloodied him up a bit and immediately fell in love with the sport."

In 1988, when Vilche was just 18 years old, she joined a local boxing gym, and received solid boxing training.  Unfortunately at that time, there were no amateur boxing opportunities for females at the time, so consequently she could not get any fights.


Vilche tries her hand at wrestling

Vilche said, "out of frustration, I joined the men's wrestling team at Chico State in 1992.  I had 11 matches, with all of those matches competing against men. They had a lot more experience than me, except for one female, who's dad was the wrestling coach at UC Davis where she wrestled Afsoon Rohansair, a world class champion wrestler. "It was fun---but not the same as boxing."

In 1993, under the tutelage of Dan Verdugo, Vilche picked up boxing against, just to find out that there still was no amateur boxing for the females, despite her pleas, even sending a letter to the World Boxing Magazine out of frustration.  Vilche said that Verdugo convinced her to try kickboxing to get in the ring at least.

" I did, and would always get the minimum number of kicks required and then just end up boxing. I ended up winning the IKF Bantamweight title before I retired from kickboxing.  Finally there were opportunities to fight in the amateurs, and I jumped into the boxing ring with both feet.  I had a few fights, all wins, until some injuries took me out of fighting for what I thought was forever," said Vilche.

While out of boxing Vilche she decided to get in touch with her Eskimo heritage and compete in the World Eskimo Indian Olympics in 2000. 

Vilche told WBAN, " I trained hard, but had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I still won two silver medals, with one of them in the Eskimo Stick pull (basically a two man tug of war with a stick instead of a rope) and one in the four-man carry (you let 4 people load onto you- one in the front, one on each side and one in the back) and you try to walk as far as you can. I thought I would break my back under all that weight!"

"I had some corrective surgery and was feeling all better when I went to watch a cage fight with my husband. I saw a local boy that I knew fight his heart out.  He threw punches, kicks, took the guy down, tried to choke him out... It was an exciting fight, but he lost. I was so charged up after watching, I told my husband I had to try that out. He was dead set against it,  worried that I would re-injure myself. I begged, pleaded, threatened... until he relented and told me 'whatever'..."  Vilche had a total of 11 pro-MMA fights.

Then in 2012, she decided that no matter what she was going to go back to her first love---and that was boxing.  And...as you see Vilche won her first fight in a four-round bout, making her currently 1-0-0 (1KO). 

Vilche told WBAN that she very anxious to get fights, and if promoters or matchmakers are interested she can be contacted via email.  Vilche is 43 years old so would like to waste little time in getting fights!

More details of Vilche:   Boxing/MMA related details--she has 24 years of experience as a boxer; fought in the amateurs, winning in the 1995 S.F. Golden Gloves, unopposed;  11 Pro-MMA fights; and that Vilche has no future plans returning to MMA, and would like to be competing in her first love-Boxing.
