Lita Mae Button will take that step that other competitors have before her when she steps into the ring for the first time as a professional at Nordic Coliseum Boxing, Aug. 15, in Quebec Canada. She faces MMA fighter and kickboxer Maureen “Baby Face” Riordon, who is also making her professional boxing debut at the event.
Button, who has been competing since 2005, comes in with an impressive resume, having over 45 amateur fights and several trophies. She capped off her ammy run with the 2013 Golden Gloves title. She also has an inspiring story, balancing boxing with her career as a personal training as well as raising a family.
This match could be quite the clash. Although Riordon lacks Button’s experience, she does have the same passion for athletics. She also has good conditioning and is not afraid to get into the thick of things.
If Button wins this match it will be the start of a great professional career.
