Holly Holm defeats Victori Cisneros

Friday evening, Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (30-1-3), the current women’s pound for pound champion pitched a shutout against Victoria Cisneros (5-12-2, 1 KO) at the Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The bout was a rematch of an earlier meeting in which Holm beat Cisneros 100-90 and 99-91 twice. In that bout at Isleta Casino & Resort, shortly before the main event was scheduled to go, Holm’s opponent, Melissa Hernandez bailed out on their pound-for-pound showdown, fleeing the building with an excuse that her corner had not had an opportunity to see Holm’s hands get wrapped.

Despite not being available for Holm’s hand-wrapping, and disregarding an offer to re-wrap, Hernandez took her gear and fled. Replacing Hernandez, literally at the very last moment, Cisneros stepped in to fight Holm. Though losing virtually every round, Cisneros gave a game performance, to lose with scores of 100-90 and 99-91 twice.”

Holm’s only loss came seven years ago when facing Rita Turrisi. Her corner threw in the towel after Holm sustained an ugly cut under her eye.

Right after registering her thirtieth victory, promoter Lenny Fresquez announced Holm will be taking on Anne Sophie Mathis, another top pound-for-pound female boxer on December 2 for what he calls “World Dominance,” at the Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque.

Holm will try to regain her IBA Welterweight title and WBAN Championship Belt in the 10-round main event against Mathis (23-1, 20 KOs), the WBO European Welterweight Champion from France.

This Holm versus Mathis match is a modern day match-up between the consummate boxer, southpaw Holm, and knockout specialist, Mathis, who will be fighting outside of Europe for the first time.

“This has all the makings of an instant classic, potentially one of the greatest fights in women’s boxing history,” Fresquez said. “Holly has exhausted all of her competitive options in the U.S., fighting just about every legitimate title challenger – 11 world champions – and now she wants to test herself against the best European fighter, Ann Sophie Mathis. It promises to be a memorable night for boxing fans all over the world, not just women’s boxing fans.”

Holm, who is 29 years-old and stands 5’8” tall, is a multiple world champion in three weight divisions (light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight). She’s defeated all of the significant names in women’s boxing from the 140 through 154-pound classes to include Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).

Mathis, who is 34 years-old and stands 5’11” tall, is from Dombasle-sur-Meurthe, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France. She’s riding a 22-fight win streak dating back to 1995 when she lost in her second pro fight. She’s a two-time world light welterweight champion. In 2006, in her first world title match, she stopped previously unbeaten Myriam Lamare (13-0) for the WBA crown as well as the vacant EBU championship. Mathis’ victims also include Couch, Yankovich, Ana Pascal and Nathalie Toro.
