Ice Promotions officials announced today that Jennifer “The Bolivian Queen” Salinas will not be fighting on Saturday’s card. The Manassas, VA featherweight informed the promotion yesterday that she will challenge champion Jackie “The Aztec Princess” Nava for the WBC interim super bantamweight title on Saturday, Nov. 6 in Yucatan, Mexico.
Jonathan Reid, who was Jimmy Lange’s teammate from season one of The Contender and a former opponent, has been added to Saturday’s action-packed lineup. Reid has been serving as Lange’s training partner the past few weeks in Northern Virginia and will take on an opponent to be determined.
Jimmy Lange Boxing is proud to support America’s Adopt A Soldier, a locally-based, non-profit organization that strives to make a difference in the lives of service members, veterans and their families through a variety of activities.
