WIBA Rankings

Check it.

The most recent Women’s International Boxing Association rankings put my trainer Bonnie Mann at NUMBER 3 IN THE WORLD in the Light Heavyweight division.

Yeah, read that again, and wish you were so good.

You can click over there yourself at this link and browse the ratings, but pay PARTICULAR attention (sorry, there’s no other way to do this except in all freaking caps) to the World Champion in the 175 lbs Light Heavyweight division, Carlette Ewell, who is ALSO here in North Carolina.

Can you say “Give us a match-up,” people?

That’s what I’m hoping for. Carlette (14-7) fought just last week and won against newcomer-to-the-ring Tiffany Woodard (2-3) who who impressed everyone by going the distance against a much more experienced opponent, and who is now ranked 4th in the Heavyweight division. Tiffany is also an NC pro boxer, and works out of a gym in nearby Wilson, NC. She made the drive out to get some sparring in with Bonnie before her fight with Carlette, which I got to corner for. Once this young fighter hits her stride, she’s gonna be a force to reckon with.

Meanwhile, I’m ready to see a HUGE hometown match-up between my boss and Carlette.

Fingers crossed for that, but meanwhile, putting my SWAGGER on for Bonnie Mann, #3 in the world!

    That’s awesome. Go Bonnie!

    By the way, Lisa, I can tell you’re a designer by the red arrow. It’s a very nice touch.

      Hee hee. I had to make SURE no one could miss it. I would put it on their website if I thought they’d let me. Although that one would be animated with glitter and stars of course.

    We will make this happen. We are working on the details now to make this fight happen in NC hopefully. There are now talks of NY and FL in the mix but for obvious reasons we would love to have it in NC!

    We will keep everyone updated as more information is available.
