After wrapping up a stellar boxing career, one that included a 33-2-3 record, Holly Holm has officially retired from the "sweet science" to pursue mixed martial arts (MMA) full time, signing a four-fight contract with Legacy Fighting Championship.
From Holm's promoter, Lenny Fresquez:
"After speaking with all MMA companies, we have selected Legacy because of its commitment to help prepare Holly for a Super Fight, as well as getting her the right television exposure."
Holm, who called it quits earlier this month following a 10-round unanimous decision win over Mary McGee, is expected to make her Legacy debut against an opponent to be named on July 19, 2013, live from the Houston Arena Theater in Houston, Texas.
