"Rumble in the
Desert" a Success
There's a brand new face in women's pro boxing.
Poula Estrada made her pro debut last night at the Pioneer Event Center (PEC) in Lancaster, Calif. at the "The Rumble in the Desert" promoted by Rodriguez Promotions. Here is my special report and photos from Saturday's event held at the PEC on the grounds of the University of Antelope Valley.
The 21-year-old Estrada hails from Palmdale and had a huge group of family and friends coming out to catch her highly-anticipated pro debut. The lanky flyweight faced San Bernardino's Blanca Raymundo in a four-round match on the undercard of the Jonathan Alcantara vs. Erik Ruiz main event. While opponent Raymundo only has one win on her record, she had more pro experience than the debuting Estrada. But Poula was focused and confident before the bell rang.
