Windham, NH – [January 23, 2019] – For the first time in the history of New Hampshire-sanctioned combat sports, a women’s fight will headline a fight card.  Boston Boxing Promotions announced today that Revere, Massachusetts’ Kimberly “The Machine” Wabik and Florida’s Britain “The Queen Bee” Hart will close the show this Friday night at the Castleton Banquet and Conference Center in Windham, New Hampshire.  The main event is a super featherweight fight scheduled for four-rounds.

New Hampshire combat sports events have a history of showcasing female fighters.  Women, however, have never competed in the main event of a sanctioned Granite State card. Recent women’s welterweight title challenger Aleksandra Magdziak Lopes, who headlined the final boxing broadcast ever on HBO, fought twice in New Hampshire as a young prospect. Former national amateur champion Amanda Pavone of Billerica, MA fought New Hampshire native Karen Dulin last summer in Gilford, New Hampshire. 

A profusion of female mixed martial artists and Muay Thai fighters have also competed and trained in New Hampshire including Granite State resident Alyssa Marini, Lancaster’s Alex Walker, Carol Linn Powell (who along with her husband UFC fighter Devin Powell operates a training center in Somersworth), as well as retired veteran of the UFC and Invicta cages Peggy Morgan.

Kimberly Wabik and Britain Hart, however, will be entering unchartered waters for female fighters in New Hampshire this coming Friday when they main event “Friday Night Fights” at the Castleton in Windham, NH.  Hart headlined a Bare Knuckle Boxing pay-per-view event in Mississippi last summer, challenging UFC veteran Bec Rawlings for her championship.
