“A mixed martial artist fighting a boxer in an MMA fight gives the MMA fighter a huge advantage, and the same goes true for MMA fighters engaging in a boxing match with a boxer. It’s really not a fair fight,” said Hall of Fame promoter Roy Englebrecht. “On October 26, Lisa Mauldin and Angel Blackwell will get their chance to test the waters in boxing without having to do so against someone with a huge stylistic advantage. These two ladies know how to fight. Now they want to box, and I’m expecting a barnburner.”
Currently 6-3 as an MMA pro with three finishes, Irvine’s Lisa Mauldin has been on a tear in the PFL promotion, where she’s won two straight, including a third-round stoppage of highly regarded Helen Peralta in February and a first round submission of Desiree Yanez in August. Now she’ll look to close out 2023 in the boxing ring with a win over Blackwell.
Fighting out of San Diego, Angel Blackwell not only has a long amateur background in MMA, but she turned pro last year on a Combate Global Exclusivo card and even has experience as a professional wrestler. But now it’s time to step between the ropes for what she expects to be the biggest fight of her career thus far.
Also on October 26th will be 10x National Champion Pan American Games Gold Medalist Jesikah Guerra currently at 2-0 as she takes on amateur MMA fighter turning Pro Boxer in Brianna Jimenez. The fans have been asking for a female bout all year long, so to have two female bouts on our October 26th show is going to be something special.
