Gearing up for future Ronda Rousey showdown
Holly Holm after last night’s win
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (March 1, 2013) — The “Queen of Boxing,” Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (3-0-0, 3 KO/TKOs), kept her undefeated MMA record intact, outclassing Katie Merrill (1-1-0, 1 SUB) en route to a win by technical knockout (punches) at 3:12 of round two, last night on the Bellator 91 event at Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.
Holm, considered to be the No. 1 female boxer in the world, is a 14-time, three-division world champion in boxing. Her goal is to challenge UFC star Ronda Rousey to determine who “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” is today.
“Holly looked great,” her promoter Lenny Fresquez (Fresquez Productions) said. “We believe that, after a few more MMA fights, within a year she’ll be ready to take on Rousey. Holly’s problem in MMA, as in boxing, is that her list of competitive opponents is very short.”
Holm trains and fights for Team Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA. She is managed and trained in both combat sports by John Winkeljohn.
