Undefeated Ashburn, VA middleweight Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson will not have a lot of time to dwell on the second straight draw she had against Teresa Perozzi Saturday night in Bermuda. Nelson (6-0-3) will be defending her Women's International Boxing Association Middleweight title against Maria Lindberg of Malmo, Sweden on Saturday, March 30 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC. Babie Girl Promotions is promoting the card.
Lindberg (8-1-2, two KO's) is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Floarea Lihet on October 12 in Hamburg, Germany. Lindberg is a former WIBA and WIBF (Women's International Boxing Federation) Junior Middleweight titleholder whose only loss came when she fought for the WBO and WBF Middleweight titles on May 27, 2011. Lindberg lost a 10-round unanimous decision to Christina Hammer in the Czech Republic. Lindberg has only fought in the US three times but this will be her second trip to DC. Lindberg fought Ann Saccurato to a four-round draw in her second pro fight in May of 2004 at DC Tunnel.
