Hill and Emery Ready For AROTO Welterweight Action

09.08.06 - Welterweight action will be fierce when "A Ring of Their Own" brings together Camden, New Jerseyís Daria Hill (3-3) and New York Cityís Jill Emery (6-0) at Harveys, Lake Tahoe on August 31. Hill is coming off a disappointing loss in January to Suswella Roberts and makes no bones about getting a "W" in Lake Tahoe. Nor does she fear an undefeated opponent. "No," Hill said without a trace of doubt..

"She hasnít fought anybody, and hasnít been up against anybody as tough as I have been, the record Iíve been seeing. Iím looking for a BIG W and I deserve it. I could have done better against Suswella had I known it was the pressure of having to win by KO, fighting in her backyard. But August 31, my hands will do the talking for me."

Jill Emery, who is undefeated as a professional won three national titles in three weight classes as an amateur, sees this fight with the tough Daria Hill as a welcome opportunity. "Iím glad to be fighting her, itís gonna be a good fight and Iím looking forward to it. Iím just trying to fight better people, up my level of competition to where I can fight for a belt," Emery stated, and preferred not to predict the outcome in the ring, but encourages boxing fans to see what she expects to be a great fight.

Daria Hill and Jill Emery will battle it out during "A Ring of Their Own" on August 31 at Harveys Lake Tahoe. For more information on the series or this event, visit the website.
