Kaliesha West – prepping “360-style” for her upcoming title fight.

Kaliesha West – prepping “360-style” for her upcoming title fight.

Boxer Kaliesha West (13-1-2, 4 KOs) has her own reality TV show on YouTube in advance of her upcoming fight on June 18th.

Kaliesha will defending her WBO Female Bantamweight title at the Pico Rivera Stadium in Los Angeles as the main boxing event for promoter Red Scorpion Promotion’s International Fight Showdown.  Entitled IFS8: Mass Destruction, the fight card will also feature MMA and Muay Thai bouts — not unlike Ana Julaton’s fight card in Riverside, California earlier in the year.

For those who are unfamiliar with Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West — she started boxing at the age of ten and never stopped. She had a huge amateur career, winning a total of 98 amateur bouts that included the National Golden Gloves in 2003.

Kaliesha turned pro in 2006 and continues to train with her father, Juan West. In a recent interview, Kaliesha said, “Since the beginning of my career, my dad has always handled the when, where, and with whom I fight. I just train for whatever is lined up next. I am thankful to have my father as my coach and manager, because I know he is looking out for my best interest.” (Link here.)

BTW, Kaliesha’s also made David Avala’s top dozen pound-for-pound female fighters list. (Link here.)

Women’s Boxing Upcoming Championship Bouts!

Women’s Boxing Upcoming Championship Bouts!

Mariana Juárez

>>>UPDATE>>>

In front of a crowd of 5,000 people cheering, “Mexico, Mexico,” Mariana Juarez defended her WBC Flyweight title against Gabriela Bouvier from Uruguay and won by TKO in the 7th round. With the stoppage by the Referee, Mariana’s record improved to an impressive 29-5-2 with 14 KOs.

Coming up this Saturday, May 21, 2011, Mexico’s Mariana Juarez (28-5-3, 13 KOs) will be defending her first Women’s WBC flyweight world title challenge against Uruguay’s undefeated Gabriela Bouvier (6-0-1).  The bout will be held at the Entertainment Center of Morelia Michoacán in Mexico.  The fight will co-feature two other title fights and is promoted by Boxeo de Gala.  For those who might not remember, Juarez captured her title by defeating Simona Galassi on March 11th.  There is no word on a media outlet as yet, however, my guess is you’ll be able to find it as a video streaming event.
