Roberts, 23, is 5-0 as a kickboxer and is eager to prove she has made a successful transition to conventional boxing.

Training with Jim Cofer, Stacey reports has gone great, and she is coming in to face Hernandez well schooled on drills, movement and in great condition. Is she intimidated at debuting against Hernandez, who has an outstanding amateur career to her credit and no losses? "No, Iím not intimidated. This is the time for me to show what Iím made of!" Stacey said. Part of Staceyís training has also been with lightweight warrior Kelli Cofer, who herself has seen ring action with their divisions toughest fighters, so expect lots of excitement from Stacey Rogers.
