KEEPPUNCHING ENTERTAINMENT (KPE) has partnered with BEST WESTERN OF ALEXANDRIA to be the official headquarters for the CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING series being brought to CENLA (Central Louisiana). On July 18th of this year, Martha Turner, the general manager of the Best Western stepped in to be involved in Keeppunching Entertainment’s (KPE) nationally televised show. Since that time the excitement and energy of BIG TIME BOXING has never left the spacious hotel.
Former heavyweight champions of the world stayed at the sprawling property as they were involved with KPE’s debut show in the Rapides Parish Coliseum where millions watched the televised show all across North America and other parts of the world. World rated contenders who have been seen on national television regularly were seen walking around the local hotel.
On December 29th, KPE is bringing another star studded show with 9 phenomenal fights on the undercard of a NABF (North American Boxing Federation) Female Lightweight Championship match between two of the most entertaining and avoided female boxers in North America.
Selina “The Aztec Queen” Barrios is being matched against “Lovely” Lisa Porter in a 10 round blazing matchup. Barrios is a multiple Ringside World Amateur Champion while Porter is a multiple National Amateur Champion. Both boxers have been avoided by the top rated females in the lightweight division. They are now meeting each other as undefeated professionals. The winner of this match will be in contention for a world championship fight as they will lay it all on the line.
