Albuquerque favorite Holm (21-1-2, 6 KOs), recognized as the No. 1 welterweight in the world, takes on the world’s No. 1 middleweight, Detroit icon Sanders (25-0, 8 KOs), in the 10 round main event for the vacant International Female Boxers Association (IFBA) junior middleweight title.
“Holly and Mary Jo are fighting for the right to be called the top pound-for-pound female fighter in the world today,” promoter Lenny Fresquez said. “This show is the all-time best ever for female boxing with five No. 1 fighters, based on independent rating groups, starting with Holly and Mary Jo, along with the No. 1 featherweight (Jeannine Garside), junior lightweight (Chevelle Hallback, and strawweight (Careno Moreno). Add a pair of No. 2 rated fighters (flyweight Eillen Olszewski) and (junior flyweight Hollie Dunaway), plus a No. 3 (junior flyweight Wendy Rodriguez); ‘Finally’ is featuring eight fighters - all rated among the world’s top 3 - in four world title fights shown worldwide on pay-per-view.”
The most punishing, action-packed fight could turn out to be the 10-round co-feature for the IFBA lightweight title between WIBA & IBA junior lightweight title-holder Chevelle “Fists of Steel” Hallback (26-5-2, 11 KOs), fighting out of Tampa (FL), and WIBA featherweight champion Jeannine “G9” Garside (7-0-1, 3 KOs), of Ontario (Canada).
