It might be a mismatch, but even underdogs have their day.

The IBA Light Welterweight champion Holly Holm will rematch journey woman fighter Victoria Cisneros at the Route 66 Casino tonight near Albuquerque, NM.

Holm is on an incredible 29-1-3 record and hasn’t lost since 2004. Cisneros (5-11-2) has lost her past three fights by decision, with her last one being a split decision loss. She has only been TKOed once, lossing the other ten by decsion.

Cisneros first fought Holm in December 2009, literally getting called out of the crowd when Holm’s opponent dropped out at the last minute. Cisneros took Holms the distance, but lost all but one round. With six weeks to train, who knows?

Holm is still the odds on favorite in the match, but expect some great action as Cisneros has something to prove, and Holm wants to once again impress the hometown crowd.

With the advent of social media, people have been doing their call outs through twitter and Facebook. Mia St. John decided to kick it old school.

First St. John  St. John appeared on TMZ to state that she beat up champion Christy Martin in their first encounter in 2002, but due to the judges being in Martin’s back pocket she got a bum decision. (See video below.)

Then to drive her point home, St. John showed up at the press conference in Los Angeles, where it was announced that Martin would rematch Dakota Stone for the WBC title.  St. John was announced to be facing the winner, and St. John gave a few verbal jabs to Martin, and visa versa. (See video below.)

This will probably be the most anticipated rematch in women’s boxing history, but St. John has to hope Martin gets by Stone.
