Todays’ Press conference was at The Palm Restaurant DTLA. Its incredible to be privy to the absolute latest from the boxing world. I’m excited to share it with you.
After the traditional Palm lunch of steak or salmon, salad, sides and desert, the meeting began. 360’s Promotion’s Tom Loeffler began by thanking all in attendance. To his left sat the Nicaraguan champion boxer Ramon “Chocolito” Gonzalez. The flyweight boxer holds world titles in four weight classes. To his right, “the First Lady” of boxing Cecilia Breakhus.
Today’s Welterweight Champion is the “First Lady” of Boxing Cecila Braekhus 34-0 (9 KO’s). Its insane to think that the beautiful lady in front of you is deadly. Deadly and undefeated! Make no doubt about this babe. If you caught her last fight at Stub Hub it was ten rounds of bad assery! Its a wonder shes so easy on the eyes, the lady can take a punch! She’s the #1 Pound for Pound Female Boxer in the World by Ring Magazine and the Boxing Writers Association of America and the first woman in any weight class to hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles simultaneously. Her athletic skills stand right next to the likes of Bernard Hopkins, being one of only 5 in history to ever hold all four titles.
Also in attendance was Cecilia’s trainer Jonathan Banks and HBO’s Tony Walker. The day was a formal announcement of a tribute show to HBO. Tom acknowledged the careers launched of greats like Oscar de la Hoya , Shay Mosley, Floyd Mayweather and many more. HBO was the first to air a female fight in 45 years. That alone will forever go down in history and is deserving of a tribute. For decades HBO has been the home of all the best famous boxing nights. Together with Stubhub Center’s tremendous arena, were in for a good show of boxing.
Both boxers have agreed to train here in Los Angeles. Its foolproof that the same boxer that was the first female fight in 45 years will also be in one of, if not the very last fight ever. The tickets are reasonable starting at $25 and are available this Saturday.
