Historic Night At Battle In The Ballroom

September 27, 2008

If 22 straight sellouts aren’t enough to get you to the next Battle In The Ballroom pro boxing show at the Irvine Marriott on Thursday, October 9th, promoter Roy Englebrecht has come us with two historic reasons to be in attendance, and they are both groundbreaking in the boxing history.

Besides the Main Event for the Battle In The Ballroom Championship Belt, Englebrecht has announced that Avalon Anders, one of the early Ring Card Girls to work at the Marriott shows, will be stepping into the ring with her 19 year old daughter Amanda Stronegger, making them boxing’s first ever Mother-Daughter Ring Card Girls! Anders was a member of Playboy’s Swedish Ski Team in 1991 and was living in Garden Grove when she started doing Ring Card Girl duties at the Marriott. Amanda is currently pursuing a modeling and acting career. “I remember Avalon having to get a baby sitter for Amanda when I booked her at the Marriott,” stated Englebrecht. “She worked for me for nearly 15 years and even was the Ring Card Girl on the Celebrity Boxing shows on Fox. Now to have Avalon and Amanda in the same ring is really having my business come full circle.”

Added to this great six bout card set for October 9th, will be another first for the sport of boxing, when Ricky and Ana Tangaro step into the ring to become the first ever husband and wife to fight on the same fight card! Married for five years and training out of the Coachella Boxing Club and trained by Lee Espinoza, they will both be making their pro debuts but will not be fighting each other. Ricky will meet Efren Lopez out of Bakersfield and Ana will face 1-0 Michelle Nelson from Alberta, Canada.

The Fernando Quintero vs Luis Alberto Cervantes main event will be a good one as both fighters can win their first ever championship belt. Quintero out of Oxnard is undefeated at 5-0 and will get all he wants from Cathedral City’s 7-2 Cervantes.

If you liked the two spectacular knockouts at the August 27th show, ballroom matchmaker Arnold Berber is working on bringing both Terrell Hendrix and Herman Scott who made big pro debuts with the KO wins. Plus exciting flyweight Angel Magdelano meets Huntington Parks’s Jose Pacheco.

Tickets priced at $37 and $30 are available online at www.battleintheballroom.com.
