'World Dominance' Dec. 2 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (November 25, 2011) - Mixed-martial-arts superstar Jon "Bones" Jones has been helping his friend, nine-time world boxing champion Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm (30-1-3, 9 KOs), prepare for her December 2nd "World Dominance" showdown against French knockout artist Anne Sophie Mathis (25-1, 21 KOs), to determine the mythical No. 1 pound-for-pound world champion today in women's boxing.
"World Dominance," presented by Fresquez Productions, will be held Friday night, Dec. 2 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Holm-Mathis 10-round bout will be contested for the IBA Welterweight title and WBAN Championship Belt.
Jones, the premier light heavyweight MMA fighter in the world, is trained in Albuquerque by Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn, who is also Holm's chief second for boxing and MMA. She has a 2-0 MMA record with a pair of knockouts. Jones recently sparred with Holly during her open media workout this past Tuesday. "I am champion," he said, "and she (Holly) pushes me; I look-up to her."
Here is a link to the Holm vs. Jones sparring session:
Holm is a three-division champion as a light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight. The gifted 30-year-old boxer has a 20-0-1 (6 KOs) record in world title fights and sports a 14-0-1 mark against world champions. She has fought and beaten virtually all of the notable names of the past decade in women's boxing, including Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice). Holly is riding a 24-fight unbeaten streak, dating back to her only pro loss in 2004, when a serious cut under her eye prevented her from continuing to fight.
Mathis is the reigning the WIBA, WIBF and WBF World Welterweight Champion. She has won 24 consecutive fights, dating back 16 years to her only pro loss in her second fight. Mathis' victims include world champions Myriam Lamare, Couch, Yankovich, Ana Pascal and Nathalie Toro.
