Wed, 24 May 2023
PROVIDENCE, RI (May 23, 2023) – The Inaugural Shelito’s Way All-Female Tournament, presented by retired professional boxer Shelly “Shelito’s Way” Vincent (27-2, 1 KOs) has announced an amateur boxing tournament for females only on July 1 and 2 at Whaling City Athletic Club in New London, Connecticut.

“I missed boxing and now that I’m done fighting, I wanted to give back,,” Vincent explained why she founded the tournament. “I wanted to create another outlet for females to have a platform to showcase their skills. When I was an amateur, I remember how hard it was to stay active and find fights. I want to do that for all women, of all ages and levels. Each year I want this tournament to be bigger and better with the help of people such as the WBC (World Boxing Council), IBF (International Boxing Federation) World champion Ebanie Bridges, USA Boxing and Whaling City AC.”
WBC and Bridges are event sponsors. Boxers will compete for WBC medals and belts.
