Jennifer Han To Defend Title Against Lizbeth Crespo
It seems like it has been forever since IBF World Featherweight Champion Jennifer Han last defended her belt. The nearly 10-month wait will end on Friday night, December 1st when Han meets #1 world ranked contender Lizbeth Crespo at the El Paso County Coliseum.
"It's a relief I have to say," Han explained in the official fight release. "I'm excited to finally get back into the ring and fight in front of the great fans of El Paso. My first three title defenses came so quick and then the long layoff made it tough to just go to the gym and workout without a fight. But in some ways, the layoff was good for me. I'm well-rested, rejuvenated, and ready to put on a great show for El Paso."
The 12-3 Crespo is the highest ranked contender that Han has defended her belt against. The Argentinian is the top ranked contender for the IBF belt, but this will be her first ever fight in the US.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday, October 28th and will be priced at $25, $40, $60, and $100 plus applicable service charges. They will be available at the Coliseum Box Office, Ticketmaster outlets, and TicketMaster.com.
