Here's an update on the Saturday, March 30th Babie Girl Productions card at the Renaissance Hote, located on 999 9th Street, NW in Washington, DC.
Two female bouts will headline the card. WIBA (Women's International Boxing Association) Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson of Ashburn, VA will defend her title against Maria Lindberg of Malmo, Sweden in a 10-round bout. Nelson (6-0-3) will be in her fourth straight world title bout going through two title draws against Teresa Perozzi in Bermuda and and her WIBA title win against Vashon Living in Fairfax, VA.
Lindberg (8-1-2, two KO's) is the current WIBA Junior Middleweight titleholder and her only loss was against Christina Hammer for the WBO and WBF Middleweight titles in 2011. This is Lindberg's third trip to the United States and her second visit to DC, having fought a draw with Ann Saccurato in May of 2004.
Also slated to be on the card is Manassas, VA featherweight "The Bolivian Queen" Jennifer Salinas who is competing against an opponent to be determined. Salinas (13-3, four KO's) is coming off a six-round unanimous decision win over Karen Dulin on October 13 in Southhampton, Bermuda.
In other bouts on the card, DC welterweight David "Day-Day" Grayton will take on Tyrone Braswell of Wilson, NC. Grayton (3-0, three KO's) is coming off a second-round TKO over Greg Coverson, Jr. on February 22 at the DC Armory. Braswell (0-5) has faced nothing but undefeated opponents and will look to get out of the first round for the first time in this contest. Also, DC light heavyweight Greg Newby will be in action against Ivan Burke of Wilson. Newby (5-0, three KO's) last fought on January 12 in Fort Washington, MD and won a four-round unanimous decision over John Terry. Burke is 0-2.
There are also amateur bouts slated for this card, which is scheduled to be videotaped for a future broadcast on Channel 50.
