 MARCH 24

CAROLINA NATIVE AND TRIPLE TITLE-HOLDER BIGGERS A VETERAN OF THREE FIGHTS AT WHITE ROCK GYM

White Rock Boxing Gym (WRB) at 2150 Dutch Fork Road, White Rock, SC, reminds boxing fans that Donna Biggers-Jelena Mrdjenovich are fighting for the WBC Super Featherweight Division Championship of the World at the Edmonton Community Center in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Thursday, March 24.

Donna "Nature Girl" Biggers, a three-time fighter at White Rock boasting 18 wins, two losses and one draw (14 KOs) currently ranks as the world's No. 16 Female Boxer in the world.

The 5'2", 128-lb. Biggers, who trains in Spartanburg, holds three titles won at Carolina venues, including WRB. The Shelby, NC native claimed the WBE Super Featherweight title on August 28, 2004 in Greensboro; the WIBC Featherweight title at White Rock on June 18, 2005; and WBB Lightweight title on July 16 in Florence. Her White Rock appearances, promoted by Head Hunters Boxing, included Fight of the Night (among male and female fighters), standing-room-only matches against Tiffany Ibanez in October 2005 and Joy Irvin in January 2006. Biggers also fought Samantha Browning (who captured media attention by boxing former skater Tonya Harding), KO-ing Browning in the first round.

Biggers' one title loss was her news-making fight against Mia St. John for the vacant IBA title in Beijing, China.

Mrdjenovich, whose stats are 15 wins and one loss, is a native of Canada's Northwest Territories. She is the No. 1 Female Boxer in the world.

"The Biggers-Mrdjenovich match is significant because of the title's importance - the WBC World Title has been held by Muhammad Ali, and Mike Tyson" said Billy Stanick, owner of White Rock Gym and owner-CEO of Stanick Sheet Metal and Roofing Company at 5539 Old Bush River Road in Columbia. "We're also excited because Donna's one of our own."
