A Ring Of Their Own Brings Style To Lake Tahoe!

20.08.06 - "Styles make fights" and we’re ready to deliver," said Wanda Bruce, A Ring of Their Own matchmaker. "From "Baby Doll" to "Hurracan" August 31 at Harvey’s will show fight fans a variety of styles and great action. "There will be explosive action when all of these fighters meet," Wanda promised and commented on the evenings card..

"With Elena Reid (17-3-5) and Mary Ortega (28-2-1), battling for the WIBA flyweight title will bring out the warrior in both fighters, and also present a great south paw/orthodox match up. Mary Ortega has been in tough with the caliber of fighter like Ada Velez, and Elena with Regina Halmich twice so, the sparks will fly, and the title won’t come easy," Wanda predicted.

"The rematch between Laura Ramsey (5-2-0) and Erin Toughill (7-2-1) will also be tough. Both fighters need a win to not suffer further set backs in their careers," Wanda continued. "Erin is promising another victory and is reported to be in great shape, while Laura Ramsey has been perfecting her game, and correcting a lot of mistakes since losing to Erin and will be hard to beat a second time."

I foresee Daria Hill (3-3) and Jill Emery (6-0), to be a real interesting fight," Wanda stated. "Daria is the taller fighter, with a great reach and power to put behind her punches, while being shorter, Jill Emery has the capacity to punish Daria if she gets to her on the inside. Jill Emery is looking to extend her perfect streak to 7-0, and Daria is ready to fight hard to make up for her losses to Shadina Pennybaker and Suswella Roberts.

Melissa (4-0) is coming into this fight with all the advantages- the great amateur career and a draw with Kelsey Jeffries EARLY in her pro career. Rogers, who is making the change from kickboxer to conventional boxer in her pro debut, may have a few tricks up her sleeve, since getting in some training with Kelli Cofer, who, like Melissa has fought Kelsey Jeffries. I anticipate some fireworks here, a really good fight."
