Judges Dave Moretti, Sandy Pino and Lisa Giampa, as well as referee Rocky Burke, have been assigned to work Friday night's "World Dominance" showdown between nine-time world boxing champion Holly "The Preacher's Daughter" Holm (30-1-3, 9 KOs) and six-time world titlist Anne Sophie Mathis (25-1, 21 KOs).
"World Dominance," presented by Fresquez Productions, will be held Friday night, Dec. 2 at Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Holm-Mathis 10-round bout will be contested for the IBA Welterweight title and WBAN Championship Belt, as well as the mythical No. 1 pound-for-pound world champion today in women's boxing.
One of the most recognizable judges in boxing today, Moretti (Nevada) has been officiating 34 years and worked 131 world title fights. Pino (New Mexico), a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Boxing official, has more than 40 years judging experience.
Giampa, who has been a judge with the Nevada State Athletic Commission since 2001, is certified by the Association of Boxing Commissions ("ABC"), and has attended judges' seminars around the world.
Burke (New Mexico) has refereed nearly 200 bouts since 1997, including 11 women's and eight men's world championships. Rocky was an amateur boxer who reached the 1976 U.S. Olympic Trials, losing to future world champion Bruce Curry.
A three-division champion as a light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight, the 30-year-old Holm sports a superlative 20-0-1 (6 KOs) record in world title fights, in addition to having an incredible 14-0-1 mark against world champions.
Her victims during the past decade include notables such as Christy Martin, Mary Jo Sanders, Mia St. John, Jane Couch, Duda Yankovich and Chevelle Hallback (twice). Holly is riding a 24-fight unbeaten streak, dating back to her only pro loss in 2004, when a serious cut under her eye prevented her from continuing to fight.
The reigning the WIBA, WIBF and WBF World Welterweight Champion, French invader Mathis has won 24 consecutive bouts, dating back 16 years to her only pro loss in her second fight, including fights against world champions Myriam Lamare, Couch, Yankovich, Ana Pascal and Nathalie Toro.
Doors open at 5 PM/MT, first bout scheduled for 7 PM/MT.
