Holly Holm-Mary McGee Set For May 11 Showdown

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Fresquez Productions held a press conference today to announce its next boxing event, "Mayhem," headlined by 14-time, three division world champion Holly "The Preachers Daughter" Holm (32-2-3, 9 KOs) - the recognized pound-for-pound Queen of Boxing - against challenger "Merciless" Mary McGee (20-1, 11 KOs) on Saturday night, May 11 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque.

"Mayhem," presented by Fresquez Productions in association with Route 66 Casino Hotel, will feature Holm defending her International Boxing Association (IBA) junior welterweight title in the 10-round main event against former NABC World lightweight titlist McGee, who fights out of Gary, Indiana.

"Holly Holm has repeatedly proven that she's the best pound-for-pound women's fighter in the world," promoter Lenny Fresquez said. "Mary McGee is a bright, talented boxer who earned this world title shot. She impressed us all last December in her fight on the Holm-Prazak card at Route 66 Casino Hotel. Unlike others that call-out Holly, only to break negotiations because they were never serious, Mary is stepping up to the plate like a real fighter."

The 31-year-old Holm (32-2-3, 9 KOs) has defeated a Who's Who list of woman boxers from the 140 through 154-pound weight classes, including Ann Sophie Mathis, Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).
