On May 5th, Fight Card will host their 62nd event VICTORY at the famous Joe’s LIVE venue. With so many exciting fights on the card, one in particular is a very important match on the card. The match is the for Fight Card Entertainment’s vacant Women’s Atomweight Championship. “This is a very special match for our company as this is our first ever Women’s Title match. We have tried for years (seriously) to get a Women’s Championship match that would include great fighters like Nicole Brown, Esli Kilponen, Perla Vargas & Sylvia Reyes to name a few but the stars never aligned for any of those. I couldn’t be any more excited for the two women to step in there on May 5th to fight for our title.” FightCard co-owner Brian Angelo
This match up will have Forest Park native, Anna “The Honey Badger” Somers coming with a current streak of 2 wins to take on New Mexico’s striking undefeated fighter Shania Arredondo. Training with Team FITNHB, Shania comes off of two TKO finishes to her last opponents as well as a cancelled bout from last March. “I love fighting….I’m good at it” Arredondo smiles.
With a balanced background in boxing, wrestling, BJJ and Muay Thai, Arrendondo plans on leaving Chicago with more baggage when she looks to bring the title to her hometown of Belen, NM. “This fight is very important being Fight Card’s 1st Women’s Title. It’s going to be fun and should be a good fight with Anna (Somers). I know she must be a tough if they’re bringing an opponent from out of state but I’m going to finish her one way or another.” Arredondo states.
Don’t miss history in the making for VICTORY on May 5th at Joe’s LIVE in Rosemont. Tickets are still available at www.FightCard.net
