Ruiz is coming off her knockout win over Emily Klinefelter that sent Klinefelter to the hospital — and Gleason’s own Ashley, a 13 year veteran of the sport is quoted as saying, “It would be phenomenal to win my 4th world title, especially in New York with my friends, family and fans lending support in what should be an exciting boxing match.”

Fire is taking on the current NYS Champion, Melissa “Mighty” McMorrow (5-2-3) in a rematch of their February 9th bout.

I couldn’t believe it when I realized I’d be in town during Alicia’s bout but had already made reservations elsewhere! The only good news is I’m very excited to see the play/event “Sleep No More” that night.
On No! Enjoy the show!!!
I hope Alicia Ashley does not take Christina Ruiz lightly. That girl is a TOUGH customer and does not plan on coming to NY to lose. She has a great deal of heart and punches HARD, as the retired Emily Klinefelter will attest. If Alicia does what she normally does by boxing and not going toe-to-toe with Ruiz, she will do just fine, but Ruiz may try to get Ashley into a close brawl. She has to be careful of that.
Good luck and have a good fight!
Knowing Alicia, she’ll keep her cool *and* her game plan! Great comment!
