 THE ROAD WARRIOR KALI REIS

Press Release- Even with too many blemishes on her pro record, female middleweight Kali Reis (7-5-1) wouldn't change a thing.  "I'd rather have the experience, because I've had the losses," Reis said, "but I haven't gotten beat. I've learned a lot more from the losses than the wins.” Reis' career is like that of many female boxers. Without financial backing or influence from major promoters, many of whom don't see the value in developing female fighters without the promise of television dollars in return, most of them wind up having to fight their own way to the top.  Such is the case for Reis, a Providence, R.I., native, who parlayed early success on the local circuit into four world-title shots in four different countries over the past two years, among them a knockout win over Teresa Perozzi in November of 2014 in Bermuda to capture the vacant IBA female middleweight belt.
