UPDATE: Three cheers for boxing’s #1 female heavyweight: Sonya Lamonakis!!!
Girlboxing pal and Gleason’s Gym’s own Sonya “The Scholar” Lamonakis has made it to the top of the list! Yep, we’re talking # 1 on WIBA’s World Ratings list of female heavyweight boxers!
With the loss of Gwendolyn O’Neil to Nigeria’s Ljeoma Euginine by unanimous decision after their six-round bout Saturday night in Stone Mountain, Georgia, the women’s heavyweight division has undergone an interesting change given the Ljeoma wasn’t even ranked on the WIBA World Ratings.
All we can say is congratulations to Sonya for her achievement in her first year of pro-fighting!!!
Let’s bring on a championship bout!
