Holm vs. Lamare II announced for Dec. 7

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (September 25, 2012) — Fresquez Productions held a press conference today to announce its “Fire And Ice” card, headlined by a rematch between 12-time, three-division world champion Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) – the recognized pound-for-pound Queen of Boxing – and four-time world title-holder Myriam Lamare (20-3, 10 KOs) for the IFBA and IBA light welterweight titles on Friday night, December 7 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque.

“Fire And Ice,” presented by Fresquez Productions in association with Route 66 Casino Hotel, will find Holly matched against a French boxer for her third straight fight having split her last two fights against Anne Sophie Mathis (25-2). Their most recent fight this past June resulted in a 10-round decision win for Holm for the IBA, WBF and WBAN welterweight championships.

Hold won a unanimous 10-round decision over Lamare (who will fight for only the second time outside of France) back on January 23, 2008 in Albuquerque, by scores of 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94 in Holm’s successful WIBA welterweight title defense.

“Holly Holm has proven that she’s the best pound-for-pound women’s fighter in the world and Myriam Lamare is the No. 1 world-rated light welterweight,” promoter Lenny Fresquez said. “Their first fight was very competitive and I don’t expect anything less in their rematch on December 7 at the beautiful Route 66 Casino Hotel.”

The 30-year-old Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) has defeated a Who’s Who list of woman boxers from the 140 through 154-pound weight classes, including Mathis, Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).

Lamare, a 37-year-old fighting out of Marseille, won a 10-round decision against Hallback in her last action (November 5, 2011) for the vacant IBF light welterweight crown.

“People tell me, ‘At least this fight won’t be so hard,'” Holm commented. “But I think that every fight is tough,” Holm commented. “When Myriam and I met last time, it was one of my toughest fights. I felt like she had me guessing her game plan from round to round. I have faith in my promoter (Lenny Fresque3z), who always believes in me, and my trainer. I’ve become a better person in and out of the ring. I’m as nervous as I’ll ever be, but I’m excited to take on the challenge.”

Supporting fights showcasing local boxers was also announced: light welterweight Matthew “Champ” Baca (1-0, 1 KO) vs. TBA (6 rounds), female light welterweight Victoria “La Reina de la Guerra” Cisneros (6-13-2, 2 KOs) vs. Australian invader Diana Prazak (11-1, 7 KOs) in an eight-round bout, bantamweight Raymond “Hollywood” Montez (5-2, 3 KOs) vs. Jazzma Hogue (2-2-1) in a six-round match, undefeated welterweights Cristian Cabral (4-0 3 KOs) vs. Grant John (2-0), plus amateur standout featherweight Jason Sanchez will be making his pro debut vs. Gene Perez (1-0), , in a four-round fight. All fights and fighters are subject to change.
