With breast cancer awareness month as inspiration, Tijuana club show promoter Guillermo “Memo” Mayen along with his staff of Mayen Promotions have captured the hearts and minds of the local boxing community to present a one of a kind event this coming Thursday, October 25th, at the Las Pulgas nightclub on Avenida Revolucion when they go after a Guinness world record with an entire boxing show comprised of women. In the past many other promoters have staged all-women fight cards but Mayen is taking it a step further with an all female cast including announcer, ringside doctor, referees, time keepers, judges, corner women and other assorted staff while led by honorary boxing commissioner and current WBA super bantamweight champion Jackie “Aztec Princess” Nava.
In the main event of the fight card billed as “Tijuana Dresses in Pink”, two undefeated ladies will battle for the vacant NABF flyweight title when Guadalajara, Mexico’s Joselyn Arroyo (10-0, 3KOs) faces Yadira Trejo (3-0) of Tlalnepantla, Mexico, in an eight rounder. Also featured on the card will be San Diego’s light flyweight Jolene Blackshear (5-3, 2KOs) and Mauy Thai warrior Kealani Vanderleest in her boxing pro debut. From Tijuana, first timers Brenda Flores and Sandra Robles will be featured in front of their home crowd while the very popular high school senior Kenia “Jaguarcita” Enriquez (2-0, 1KO) returns to wow her steadily growing fan base once again. In her last bout, Enriquez won a unanimous decision over Angelica “Marvilla” Dominguez in a crowd pleasing four rounder where the Tijuana fighter suffered a severe cut under her left eye. “Maravilla” of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, is back in town, this time to take on another undefeated fighter in Abigail Castañeda (3-0-2) of Torrance, California, in a bantamweight four.
As part of the festivities, Mayen Promotions is organizing a fashion show on Tuesday, October 23rd, a the Hanger 27 nightclub of Tijuana, Mexico, where the majority of the event’s participants will double as the runway models. All benefits are for the Adelante Foundation which helps combat breast cancer. For more information, please contact (01152664) 681.8156.
