The big fight in New Mexico! Holly Holm v. Anne Sophie Mathis
December 2, 2011 may well prove to be one of those seminal nights in women’s boxing when two of the great pound-for-pound boxers of the sport will face off at the Route 66 Hotel & Casino at the Legends Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Touted as the World Dominance fight card by Fresquez Productions, Albuquerque’s own Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (30-1-3, 9-KOs) will face France’s knock-out artist Anne Sophie Mathis (25-1, 21-KOs) for the what will arguably be called the bragging rights to the number one position in women’s boxing.
The bout will ostensibly be for the IBA Welterweight title and WBAN Championship Belt, but for fans of the sport, the evening represents the best of what women’s boxing has to offer.
The undercard includes the following bouts (subject to change):
Joel Vargas (3-4-1) vs. Josh Torres (5-1-1);
Eleazar Loya vs. Christian Cabral;
Brandi Montoya (0-2) vs. Tonia Cravens (2-6);
Matthew Baca vs. Daniel Gonzalez;
Leonardo Sanchez (1-0) vs. Devon Simmons;
Joel Gonzalez vs. Antonio Garcia (1-0)
