It didn’t take long into 2014 to have several fighters announcing their first pro bout of their careers.
With some spots available at Invicta now the promotion has lost some strawweights and their plans on doing more cards, fighters have been wanting to show their worth. Invicta still hasn’t announced their next card, so many fighters are turning to other promotions who have been happy to give these women their opportunity to turn professional.
One of the most intriguing matches announced is between Amanda Bobby Cooper (8-3 ammy) taking on Brittany Dugas (7-0 ammy) in a flyweight match at King of the Cage in Walker, MN February 15.
Cooper finished her last four fights, with three of them by TKO. Dugas is the Cage of Honor champion and had wins over Susie Wyatt and Katy Collins.
Another prospect, Delaney Owen, announced she is turning pro taking on 4-2 pro Sarah Alpar at Sugar Creek Showdown January 25th in Hinton, OK.
Owen (7-2) won her past three fighters, with a submission over Sarah Payant. Alpar won two of her past three including a decision won over Locelyn Lybarger.
Danielle Taylor (6-0 ammy) will have one more amateur fight before she turns pro in March. Taylor will face Wendy Julian, defending her King of the Cage amateur strawweight title January 10th in Laughlin, Nevada.
Win or lose, Taylor will face Maia Stevenson at King of the Cage in Highland, CA March 6th in what will be Taylor’s pro debut.
