ALBUQUERQUE, NM, November 6, 2010 – WBAN is pleased to announce that on December 3, 2010, at the  Route 66 Casino and Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Multi-world champion Holly Holm, will be fighting multi-world champion Ann Marie Saccurato, for NOT only the IBA Junior welterweight belt—-but the independent WBAN junior welterweight belt.

Holm, 28-1-3 (8KO), is currently world ranked #1 with WBAN as a junior welterweight, and Saccurato, 15-4-2 (6KO), is ranked #2 with WBAN in the lightweight division. Saccurato has fought as a lightweight to the welterweight division.

The Holm-Saccurato fight is highly expected to be a “War” with giving Saccurato the opportunity to revenge her loss against Holm, when they fought in March of 2007, and Saccurato lost by a 10-round unanimous decision.

Sue TL Fox of WBAN will be ringside to present the belt to the winner of this bout.

In addition to the women boxers, tough-hitting Victoria Cisneros of New Mexico, will have her work cut out for her when she takes on WBAN’s belt holder and multi-world champion, Chevelle Hallback of Florida. With both of these tremendous boxers–who are known for taking the fight “to” their opponent—it will surely be a non-stop action-packed fight.

There will also be special guest Alex “The Bronx Bomber” Ramos, Founder & President of the Retired Boxers Foundation at this event. The mission of the Retired Boxers Foundation is to assist retired professional boxers in the transition from their glorious days in the ring to a dignified retirement. The Retired Boxers Foundation was started Ramos in 1998.
