‘Bad News’ for Jackie Nava

Thursday, August 16, 2012


Lisa “Bad News” Brown, T&T’s WIBA Super Bantamweight Champion will challenge World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Bantamweight champion Jackie Nava on Saturday in Tijuana, Mexico. Brown has been preparing for battle over the last three months in her native Canada under the guidance of her trainer and husband Jamaican Errol Brown. She travelled to Tijuana on Monday and will be joined by her T&T promoter Tansley Thompson today.  Brown’s most recent fights were against Shantal Martinez in  April and  Angela Marciales in November last year.
She beat Martinez in Panama City in a hotly-contested ten-round decision  for the WBA Junior featherweight title.  In her most recent battle, she defeated Marciales at the  Queen's Park Oval, Port-of-Spain. Brown is fully aware of the magnitude of her task, going into the backyard of Nava in Mexico, where she is idolised.  Efforts were made to have the fight in T&T in front of Brown’s family and friends in her home hometown at Redhill, Morvant, but  this failed.  Brown is confident of victory. She is aware that the women of T&T are looking to her to bring home this title. Having met with President George Maxwell Richards during her last visit to T&T, US based Brown is intent on presenting him with the gloves she will use in Mexico.
