Youngstown Connection: Former Champion Melissa Hernandez Wins In Ring Return


Saturday night was a great night for VegasChamp Boxing which features Youngstown native Bill Nelson as a partner as their 39-year-old female prizefighter Melissa Hernandez turned back father time and won in her ring return last night at Cajun Dome in Lafayette, Lousiana.  

Hernandez, who fights out Miami, bullied and outclassed the previously undefeated Selina Barrios (5-1, 2 KOs) over the course of their eight round lightweight contest en route to a unanimous decision victory by scores of 80-72, 79-73, 79-73.

Barrios, who had blood pouring down her face by the fights latter rounds showed a lot of heart and determination but the 26-year-old was no challenge for the Puerto Rican Hernandez who is now back in the conversation for a title shot after a nearly three-year layoff.

Congratulations to Team Hernandez and VegasChamp Boxing.

    So I have been growing and juicing my own wheatgrass. I very causally read the growing section of Ann Wigmores's book on growing wheatgrass and that, with my general knowledge of sprouting seeds, I figured out the relatively simple process.
