(CBS) — Kaliesha West will be defending her WBO Female Bantamweight title  at the Pico Rivera Stadium on June 18th against Ava Knight.

If the name is familiar to boxing fans, it’s because she is the daugher of one of the best pound-for-pound boxers to step in the ring,  Juan West.

But as KCAL 9’s Jaime Maggio reports, her story extends beyond the ring.

  1. LaNesha Boyd says:

    You go girl!!….wow, that takes a lot of determination to go back to such a physical sport after only two months of recuperating.
