Female Boxing Reality Show "Todas Contra Mexico" Kicks Off with Press Conference
Wed, 23 Mar 2011
Chiapas, Mexico (March 22, 2011) - The kick-off press conference for the first all-female boxing reality show "Todas Contra Mexico" (All Against Mexico) in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, Mexico gave the world its first glimpse into the show on Monday afternoon.
All 16 of the combatants, which are comprised of eight Mexican female pros and eight from around the world, were dressed to the nines to field questions from the media.
The shows hosts - Female boxing star Maureen "The Real Million Dollar Baby" Shea and well-known Mexican actor Paulo Quevedo - were also on hand to promote the show, which will be produced by MapiTV.
The team captains - Bolivian Jennifer Salinas (11-3, 4 KO) representing the international team and Irma Garcia (0-0-1) leading the Mexican team - were also announced.
"These girls inspire me," said Shea, a Bronx, New York native and the current NABF female featherweight champion. "There is a sense of camaraderie, but you can already see the tension here. You can feel how much each girl wants to win.
"I just want to be an instrument to help these women to translate what they're feeling to the public while they focus on the task at hand. "
The winner of the show will receive $100,000 as well as the WBC International Female featherweight title.
The first matches are scheduled for March 26, with the championship round taking place in late April.
