The historic NCWB1 is fast approaching!
There is an historical event fast approaching, and this article is the first in our series taking a look at it, interviewing some of the fighters, and generally getting very excited about it! We hope you'll join us in the build-up of NCWB1!
For those that haven't yet heard of NCWB, it is an initialism of Nordic Coliseum Women Boxing and it's the organisations inaugural all female fight card! The clue is in the name that this is a women's boxing event, and if that isn't exciting enough, they really have given the card some thought. The event takes place on the 15th of August, at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada - and it will be televised on GFL for all of us that aren't fortunate enough to be able to get there in person. If you are able to get to it, then it would be foolish to not get yourself down to this historical night.
Here is the card as it stands:
Kaliesha West (USA) vs Olivia Gerula (CAN)
Featherweight, 8×2, Gerula replaces Dayana Cordero (COL)
Brenda Gonzales (USA) vs Lucia Osegueda (USA)
Sherine Thomas vs (CAN) _________________ (CAN)
