IFBA SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE DECEMBER 5TH


Las Vegas (November 9, 2013) – The International Female Boxers Association (IFBA.com), the top name in woman’s boxing, continues its streak of showcasing the best female fighters in the world with another title bout on Thursday, December 5 from The Hanger at the OC Fair and Event Center. 
IFBA stars Lisette Medel and Melisenda Perez will square off for the vacant IFBA Super Featherweight title as part of the very popular Fight Club OC showcase. It is the first title fight for both, a fight each has been dreaming about for years. 

Medel comes into the bout at 8-1, and has momentum on her side, having won her last six decisions. The 27-year old from Maywood, CA is already at her 130lb fight weight and has been chomping at the bit to get back in the ring for this fight. She told IFBA President Judy Kulis that she was ready for this bout as far back as July and has been counting the days. She will definitely come prepared. 

Perez, 8-5-1, 4KOs, is a big puncher who has rebounded from a tough 2011 to find her stride in 2012 and wants to make 2013 her best year yet. She comes into this fight determined to prove that she deserves to wear an IFBA title belt. 

Perez v. Medel is set up to be just as riveting as August’s IFBA championship fight between Rhonda Luna and Crystal Morales, and Kulis believes it could even be better. 

“This is a great way to close out IFBA’s tremendous 2013. Both of these women are very focused and training very hard. Each knows they may never get another shot at a title. You’re going to see two women give everything they’ve got,” said Kulis. 

Fight Club OC is staged by Roy Englebrecht Promotions. There are eight total fights, making for a very action packed Thursday night of great boxing.
