Chevelle Hallback fights Myriam Lamare for IBF Jr. Welterweight Title!
Fighting powerhouse Chevelle “Fists of Steel” Hallback (28-7-2, 11-KOs) will be battling France’s own Myriam Lamare (19-3, 10-KOs) for the vacant IBF Jr. Welterweight championship in what is sure to be a fantastic night of boxing!
They will fight on November 5, 2011 (tonight) at the Palais des Sports de Toulon, in Toulon, France.
As with many American elite female fighters, Hallback will be fighting overseas in what she hopes will be the first step towards winning a rematch against Cecilia Braehkus following her loss to her in May 2011.
Hallback has been busy in the interim having started the Fists of Steel Boxing Academy this past summer in Tampa, Florida.
