|Holly Holm vs. Diana Prazak is On|
By Media Report on Doghouse Boxing (Nov 5, 2012)
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (November 5, 2012) -- Fresquez Productions announced
today that four-time world title-holder Myriam Lamare (20-3, 10 KOs),
after attempting to renegotiate her signed contract and then citing a
shoulder injury, has withdrawn from her scheduled December 7 world title
fight against 12-time, three division world champion Holly "The
Preacher's Daughter" Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs).
Diana Prazak (11-1, 7 KOs), ranked No. 1 by the World Boxing Council
(WBC), has replaced Lamare as Holm's opponent for their 10-round main
event fight for the International Boxing Association (IBA) and World
Boxing Federation (WBF) light welterweight titles at Route 66 Casino
Hotel in Albuquerque.
"Fire And Ice" is being presented by Fresquez Productions in association with Route 66 Casino Hotel
sent us X-rays and medical records of her injured shoulder," promoter
Lenny Fresquez explained. "It's frustrating because we've already spent a
lot of money promoting Holm vs. Lamare II but we're fortunate to have a
great fighter like Diana Prazak step-up to fight the best
pound-for-pound women's fighter in the world, Holly Holm. Diana deserves
a lot of credit for accepting that big challenge and I know she's
coming to pull off an upset of Holly."
Now fighting out of Los
Angeles, Prazak will be moving up in weight to fight Holm, a natural
welterweight who is dropping back down to light welterweight for this
fight only. In her last fight, Prazak defended the WIBA super
featherweight title she won in 2011 with a win by unanimous decision
over Fatuma Aarika (24-5-1). Prazak will be fighting outside of her
native Australia for only the second time having won a six-round
decision from Lucia Larcinese earlier this year in Staten Island, New
The 31-year-old, newly married Holm (31-2-3, 9 KOs) has
defeated a virtual Who's Who list of champion woman boxers, from the 140
through 154-pound weight classes, including Lamare, Ann Sophie Mathis,
Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda
Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice).
