Holly Holm signs with Legacy Fighting Championship
Fri, 31 May 2013
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (May 30, 2013) -- Fresquez Productions has negotiated an aggressive four-fight deal with Legacy Fighting Championship in order to further develop the mixed-martial-arts career of 14-time, three-division world boxing champion Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm.
Holm is scheduled to make her Legacy debut on July 19, live on AXS TV, from Houston Arena Theater in Houston, Texas.
"After speaking with all MMA companies," Holm's promoter Lenny Fresquez announced, "we have selected Legacy because of its commitment to help prepare Holly for a Super Fight, as well as getting her the right television exposure."
"We are extremely excited to have someone as talented and of such strong character as Holly," Legacy Fighting Championship president Mike Maynard added. "We believe she embodies what Legacy is all about."
Arguably the greatest woman boxer of all-time, Holm retired from the "Sweet Science" this past May 11 after her dominant 10-round win by unanimous decision over Mary McGee (20-2, 11 KOs).
During her illustrious 12 ½ year professional boxing career, Holm registered an imposing 33-2-3 (9 KOs) record, including an incredible 15-1-1 in fights against other world champions, ranging from the light welterweight (140 lbs.) through light middleweight (154 lbs.) divisions.
The 31-year-old Holm has already had three MMA fights, winning all three by technical knockout, and she is a member of the famed Team Jackson-Wink, which boasts UFC superstar Jon "Bones" Jones and Frank Mir, among its more notables.
"I'm excited for Holly and Legacy," Holm's longtime manager/head trainer Mike Winkeljohn commented. "Holly Holm will dominate the world of women's MMA and strike its fans with a fistful of awe."
