Thursday evening at the Brooklyn Brawl card at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn NY, Alicia “Slick” Ashley proved that age is just a number and that she can still bang with anyone.
The Main Event featured Ashley (23-10-1, 4 KOs) and the previously undefeated Christina McMahon (7-1, 3 KOs) for the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) Super Bantamweight Championship.
Ashley showed her resilience in inflicting hard-hitting attacks en route to the Unanimous Decision victory over McMahon.
At 48 (dob 8/23/1967), the Jamaican-born southpaw becomes the oldest female boxer to win a world title.
“Slick” Ashley previously held the WBC Green and Gold Belt after winning it in July of 2011 until Jackie Nava snatched it away in a decision win on September 6th of last year.
