This will be war!  

We’re talking two huge IBF female championships that will be fought this coming Saturday, March 24th at the Palacio de Deportes in Santo Domingo in the Dominical Republic promoted by none other than Sampson Boxing.

Current IBF Female Featherweight Title Champion Dahiana Santana (21-6-0, 12-KOs) will be fighting her third rematch with challenger Stacey “Staylo” Reile (10-4-0, 4-KOs) who initially won the title against her in March of 2011 before losing the title to Santana in November 2011.  Their third meeting is much anticipated and should be a tough, tough fight.

Velez, best known for her bruising battles against Melinda Cooper.  Velez has also fought and won against Stacey Reile.

    I notice that some of the fighters in your clips are wearing skirts? This fascinates me – as you know there was an outcry re the wearing of skirts in amateur boxing for the Olympics but as with these fighters it’s not that big a deal in some areas. It’s the same in MuayThai, quite a few of the women wear the gladiator-skirts out of choice.
