Windham, NH  [September 4, 2018] – For the first time in Boston Boxing Promotions history, women are set to take center stage as Revere, Massachusetts’ Kim Wabik and Springfield, Massachusetts’ Liz Humphries make their respective pro debuts in a four-round lightweight fight at the Thanksgiving Eve Boxing Spectacular being held at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center on Wednesday, November 21st in Windham, New Hampshire.

Wabik, a veteran of 34 amateur fights on the New England circuit, has been trying to turn pro for over a year but finding opportunities and potential opponents to be few and far between. She trains out of Quietman Sports Gym in Medford, MA owned by former two-time WBA heavyweight champion John Ruiz.

“I am thankful for this opportunity,” said Wabik, who holds down a day job as a licensed independent clinical social worker.

“I believe my opponent is a tough girl and will put up a great fight. We are coming to give 100% and leave everything in the ring. We are expecting a lot of friends and family in the crowd in Windham that night.”

Humphries, a special education English teacher by day at Putnam Vocational-Technical High School in Springfield, will be going from the classroom to the ring after an amateur boxing career that included a close decision loss to Wabik. Now, Humphries has the opportunity to avenge that amateur defeat in the confines of a professional prizefighting ring.

“I think this match is a great opportunity for a pro debut,” said Humphries. “We had an intense match two years ago and have both been working hard to advance in the sport. I expect a challenging fight from Wabik, but it’s nothing I can’t handle. This match just gave me the edge to train that much harder-which will be the hardest I’ve ever trained.”

“This has a chance to be the fight of the night,” said Boston Boxing Promotion’s President Peter Czymbor. “I can’t wait to hear the crowd response in Windham on November 21st when the bell sounds and these ladies do what they do. They’ll make anyone think twice who has ever condescendingly said someone ‘fights like a girl.'”
