Saturday, December 8, 2018 at the StubHub Center, is a big night of boxing entertainment and I’m here to tell you all about it.
“Bang Bang LuLu” as they call her, is a female boxer from Perth Australia with a record of 8-2-0 (4 KO’s). Having lived in Australia for four years myself, She’s s my favorite. I cant help it, but Aussies will always have a place in my heart. This December 8, 2018 at the Stubhub Center she’ll take on Brenda “La Bonita” Flores 15-4-1 (3 KO’s) fighting out of Tijuana Mexico. This is a World Title 10 round re-match. In their first fight, Flores was the winner by split decision almost one year ago. Whoever wins on this night, goes home with the WBC Atomweight World Title belt.
Guaranteed, this will be a night of boxing entertainment.
On the co-main event is Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez the former Mens #1 Pound- for Pound Fighter in the World 47-2-0 (39 KO’s) of Nicaragua, vs former World Champion Pedro ‘Jibran” Guevara 32-3-1 (19 KO’s) of Sinaloa Mexico in the 10 round super flyweight division. The event will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark, one of its last fights of the ending saga of PPV boxing. Just three months ago “Chocolatito” beat Moises Fuentes with a KO in the 5th round. Now Roman Gonzalez is here in So Cal training in Coachella. “the air is clean, and it’s very quiet” said Gonzalez, “I’ve trained here before, the sparring is great and the facilities are just what I need to prepare for victory” Some may say that Chocolotito is finished, we will see about that! His opponent 29-year-old gay vara has fought in Japan and all over the world. This year alone, Guevara has been victorious in an 8th round knockout and another 10th round knockout. You know he wants another KO.
Whats great about this fight night is the main event. Cecilia Braekhus vs Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes 18-4-3 (1 KO). Cecelia, also known as the “first lady” of boxing 34-0 (9 KO’s) is the women’s #1 pound for pound fighter, and undisputed Women’s Welterweight Champion of the World. There are 5 belts on the line here! Her challenger Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes has competed for a world title two times, and has beat the same opponent as Braekhus, professional boxer Kali Reis.
Having female boxers in the main event is brilliant in and of itself. Let’s not forget this is one of the last HBO boxing after dark shows. Cecilia, has the prestigious claim of being the first female boxer to have been aired on HBO television in 45 years. Now, here she is closing the show that she opened. Cecilia is the favorite amongst boxing fans with an amazing personal story that started at a very young age with kickboxing. If you’ve ever seen her parents at one of her boxing events, that alone, is reason to buy tickets to the show.
Her challenger, Aleksandra Magdziak -Lopes wants that vacant WBC Super Welterweight World Title. Twice she has gone for it, and has lost by decision. She is used to going a full 10 rounds, and is hungry for the take!
Currently Cecilia Braekhus is the only boxer either male or female in history to hold all four titles simultaneously, along with the likes of Bernard Hopkins, and Oleksandr Usyk. With that being said, imagine the excitement and anticipation to see this woman fight!
