After the excitement of the release of the movie Catch the Fair One where she was a lead actress, native American Kali Reis returns to the ring. Nicknamed “KO Mequinonoag” because of her roots, Reis will seek to defend her World Boxing Association 140-pound belt against Australian-born Diana Prazak. The fight will take place on August 20 at the Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, California, USA.
In a strong card promoted by Lou DiBella, Kali Reis (17-7-1,5 KO’s), current WBA super lightweight world champion, who defeated Canadian Kandi Wyatt on November 6, 2020, will make her first defense and will be looking to win the vacant IBO belt. The opponent will be Diana Prazak (14-3-0,9kos) who was a former super featherweight world champion and returned to fight, after six years, in the welterweight division with a six-round win over Milagros Diaz in March last year.
In a complementary bout, Reis’ former opponent, Kandi “Krush” Wyatt (10-2-0-0,3kos) will go for a new opportunity: she will face Mexican Alma “La Conquistadora” Ibarra (8-1-0,4kos). This will be a WBA world eliminator bout at 147 lbs. The winner of the bout will be the mandatory challenger to undisputed champion Jessica McCaskill.
A great bet for the great fights of women’s boxing we will have in California with the stellar performance of the brand new WBA champion Kali Reis who will be looking to keep her own.
