HOLLY HOLM TO DEFEND VS. MARY MCGEE
Press Release: Fresquez Productions has announced its next boxing event will be headlined by three division champion Holly "The Preachers Daughter" Holm (32-2-3, 9 KOs) against challenger "Merciless" Mary McGee (20-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night, May 11th at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The bout will be a junior welterweight ten rounder for Holmes IBA belt. Holm fights out of Albuquergue while McGee fights out of Gary, Indiana.
"Holly Holm has repeatedly proven that she's the best pound-for-pound women's fighter in the world," promoter Lenny Fresquez said. "Mary McGee is a bright, talented boxer who earned this world title shot. She impressed us all last December in her fight on the Holm-Prazak card at Route 66 Casino Hotel. Unlike others that call-out Holly, only to break negotiations because they were never serious, Mary is stepping up to the plate like a real fighter."
The 31-year-old Holm (32-2-3, 9 KOs) has defeated a Who's Who list of woman boxers from the 140 through 154-pound weight classes, including Ann Sophie Mathis, Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).
