I am certain that 2016 will be the ground breaking year for female boxing in the United States and to have two bouts on such an important card at the Forum is a great step forward towards the goal of giving these heroes their long due recognition. Get ready for some action packed female bouts!”
“We’re very happy to feature these two women’s bouts on the undercard,” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions. “K2 Promotions is currently working with the #1 Women’s Pound-for-Pound Boxer, Cecilia Braekhus who had a very successful return to the ring last month in Germany. Additionally, former women’s world champion Laila Ali fought on two high profile cards in Los Angeles and New York City we promoted so we’ve always felt strongly about supporting women’s boxing.”
“We always try to provide a full evening of quality entertainment for the fans that come to Gennady’s shows. Seniesa had a great performance on Gennady’s last show at the Forum last May when he stopped Willie Monroe Jr. We’re happy to welcome her back and believe both of these female fights will provide non-stop action.”
