2012 US Olympic hopeful continues to demolish anyone that stands in her way at the professional level. Tyrieshia Douglas turned pro in August of 2012 and has rolled through competition in her 9 career bouts.
On March 20th, Douglas took to the ring in the Co-Main Event prior to her teammate, stablemate, and March #WomenofBoxing #BotM opponent Tori Nelson’s Main Event match.
Facing Maria Suarez for the UBF Flyweight title, “Lady Tiga” Douglas demonstrated superior footwork and hand speed to outwork her opponent. This championship bout was stopped shortly after Suarez was sent to the canvas in the eighth round. She was not able to mount enough defense nor offense for the referee to allow her to continue. With the TKO win, Douglas’ record improves to 9-0, with 4 KOs.
Tyrieshia Douglas put on a dominating performance over Maria Suarez via TKO, the win put her division on notice. The now 2 division world champion has been dubbed by many in the organization as the future of women boxing.
I would like to congratulate all three women (Douglas, Nelson, and Jennifer Salinas – all March #WomenofBoxing #BotM candidates), their trainers and managers and those responsible for making this historic event a reality.
– Richard Spilotro, Director of Operations of the UBF
Lady Tiga captured the UBF Bantamweight crown in November after one-sided decision win over Christina Ruiz.
Douglas has been a very busy athlete since entering the professional ring. No opponent or offered matchup is turned down. She seems to be willing go to battle with anyone.
Douglas is currently slated in to face Anahi Torres, of Tlalnepantla, México, on June 20th in Woodlawn, MD.
The Champ’s Promoter:
Congrats to Douglas! We look forward to watching your ambitious career.
