Our favoritest fighter in the whole world, Roxanne Modafferi, will be back in action on July 9th:
Roxanne Modafferi and Hitomi Akano will get their chance to square off, albeit six months later than originally planned.
Japanese all-female promotion Jewels Monday announced the addition of a 135-pound bout between Modafferi and Akano (Pictured; file photo) to its July 9 “15th Ring” show at Shinjuku Face in Tokyo. The two Strikeforce veterans were slated to meet at Sengoku “Soul of Fight” on Dec. 30 before a stomach illness sidelined Modafferi on the day of the event.
I want to fight her ten times as much as before.
I want to win 100 times as much as before.
Actually, last December 30th was the worse day in my entire life. MY ENTIRE LIFE. I had the chance to fight a really good opponent I’ve been gunning for for YEARS in front of thousands of people in the biggest show in Japan on HDnet….that’s like being invited to the UFC! On top of that, I never would have thought a woman would even fight ON the card! And I got sick as a dog the day of the fight.
I’ll show the world a different fighter. Not a new Roxy, but I’m bringing back the old Roxy. The Roxy that used to win. You’ll see…It’s gonna be good. I’ve already decided that I’m going to win. I believe that this fight is a turning point. My life depends on this fight.
This fight is mine. I will not be stepped on this time. I will do it. No excuses. I’ve never felt so determined before in my life.
