Holly Holm documentary being shot by Lerner Film

Holly Holm documentary shooting Friday night's Holm vs. Prazak World Title Fight At Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (December 6, 2012) - Veteran boxing promoter Lenny Fresquez has announced that Lerner Film is shooting a documentary about 12-time, three division world champion Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs).


Director Arnie Lerner will have a film crew working tomorrow night's Fresquez Productions-presented "Fire And Ice" show, featuring Holm versus WIBA super featherweight champion Diana Prazak (11-1, 7 KOs) in the 10-round main event fighting for the IBA and WBF light welterweight titles, at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque.

"I choose subjects for my documentaries that are unique and have inspirational personalities," Lerner explained why he picked Holm to film a documentary. "I look for someone who lights up the screen to propel their passions. I met Holly and she is so passionate about what she does. She's confident in her talents, yet, not arrogant at all. She's an elite athlete who has a sweet-hearted personality. The purity of what she does is undeniable.

"The other side (of the documentary) is the complex industry of boxing, particularly women's boxing, is in itself. The contradictions in her sport and career are fascinating. Holly represents a completely different way in terms of choices she faces every day. This story is bigger than just boxing, especially the issues faced by women in sports, which will be magnified and brought to a new level. The challenges she faces will be taken serious."

The relatively quiet, unassuming Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) is the pound-for-pound Queen of Boxing who has dominated from the 140 through 154-pound weight classes having defeated the likes of Ann Sophie Mathis, Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Myriam Lamare, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).

"It's exciting to do this," Holm said about being the subject of the aforementioned documentary. "I'm quiet but, if doing this can help women's boxing, and maybe help me get a few sponsors, it is well worth it. There are a lot of good reasons. Down the road it will be something I can share with my kids and grand-kids. They're aware I don't like distractions, unlike some fighters who like distractions to help them perform, but I only fight a few nights a year, so I'm sure it won't be a distraction for me."

World Champion Austin Trout to Attend "Fire And Ice"

WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout, who is coming off last week's impressive win by decision over Miquel Cotto, will attend tomorrow night's show.

Holm was originally supposed to fight four-time world champion Myrian Lamare in a rematch, but Lamare withdrew due to injury and was replaced by Prazak. Holm explained that the change in opponents isn't a problem. "We both had plenty of time for a change. If it were an issue, it wouldn't be just for one of us, rather both fighters. But the change of opponents came 3-4 weeks out and she was training to fight on the card against another opponent. She's had a full training camp and so have I. I'm sure that she's coming hard to rock-n-roll."

Holm will be fighting at home, where she regularly sells-out with crowds exceeding 3000, something very few female fighters in the world can claim. "It's awesome that they're there to support me," Holly remarked. "It can be a little emotional. I say all of the time that I wouldn't be here without my fans. They're loyal and there are a lot of them. It feels great and I don't want to let them down. They're legitimate supporters. It makes me feel like all of the hard work has paid off. It's almost surreal having all of them there for me. Most people in the world will never feel like I do when I enter the ring. It's personal and I never take them for granted."

Supporting "Fire And Ice" fights will showcase local boxers such as light welterweight Matthew "Champ" Baca (1-0, 1KO) vs. Derek Perez (pro debut) in a four-round bout, female light welterweight Victoria "La Reina de la Guerra" Cisneros (8-13-2, 3 KOs) vs. "Merciless" Mary McGee (19-1, 10 KOs) in a six-round match, bantamweight Raymond "Hollewood" Montez (5-2, 3 KOs) vs. Tony Valdez (6-6-3, 6 KOs) in a much-anticipated eight-round rematch, and amateur standout Jason Sanchez makes his pro debut in a four-round fight vs. featherweight Gene Perez (1-0). Former National Golden Gloves champion Siju Shabazz faces Ricky Villafuerte in the opening four-round fight in a match-up of pro-debut fighters.
