Luna-Morales rematch in August; This time for female world title

When top female boxers Rhonda Luna and Crystal Morales put on a six round war in their June 6th Fight Club OC bout, which Luna won in a close unanimous decision, a certain rematch was in order. So promoter Roy Englebrecht went right to work and announced today that Luna vs Morales II will happen on the August 15th Fight Club OC show in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center, but this time it will be 10 rounds, and for the vacant IFBA world lightweight championship. “After the tremendous bout on June 6th, where many in the crowd thought it could have been a draw or split decision, I felt that both ladies deserved a rematch and for a reward worthy of their ability,” said Englebrecht. “Now with the support of IFBA Founder and President Judy Kulis, Rhonda and Crystal will fight for a world title and a dream for one of the ladies will finally come true.” Luna will bring an outstanding 17-3 record into the title fight, while Morales might be the best 7-9 boxer in the country, as she is in nothing but wars against solid competition. Tickets for the Thursday, August 15th Fight Club OC show, priced at $50 are on sale now at
