Ex-top female boxer Holm schedules next UFC fight

Holly holm

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) – The world’s former No. 1-rated female boxer has scheduled her next Ultimate Fighting Championship bout.

The UFC announced Thursday that undefeated Holly Holm will face Farmersville, California teacher Marion Reneau on July 15 in San Diego.

Currently ranked tenth in the world in the bantamweight division, the New Mexico-born Holm is coming off her first UFC win over Raquel Pennington in February.

Holm, a 33-year-old Albuquerque boxer turned mixed martial arts fighter, signed with the world’s largest mixed martial arts promotion last year after months of negotiations.

Fans had hope Holm’s signing and entry into UFC would led to an eventual fight with UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
