Henderson, NV—The International Female Boxers Association is pleased to announce that Maureen “The Real Million Dollar Baby”, Shea (23-2, 11 KOs), will fight for the IFBA Junior Featherweight Championship of the World in the main event of Ice VS. Fire III on Friday, July 11 at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center in Oxnard, CA.
Shea, a native New Yorker, moved to Ventura in 2011 looking to revitalize her career in the ring. Fast forward to 2014 and Shea now finds herself on a sensational 10-fight winning streak. The fast-talking and hard-hitting boxer has become a bona fide celebrity in Ventura County since her last victory at Ice VS. Fire II this past March when she captured a national title.
Now, “The Real Million Dollar Baby”, a nickname which comes from Shea’s time working as the sparring partner for Hilary Swank during the actress’ preparation for her Academy Award winning role in the film, Million Dollar Baby, is more than ready for a shot at a full world championship when she takes on hard hitting veteran, South Carolina’s Angel Gladney (8-9-1, 6 KOs), for the vacant IFBA Junior Featherweight Championship of the World.
The IFBA is pleased to be sanctioning this title bout, headlining an 8- fight card show for promoter Top Players Promotions. Tickets are now available at www.topplayerspromotions.com. The fight will also be televised live online starting at 7 p.m. on GFL TV (www.gfl.tv).
