Roxy Fight Alert!

Our favoritest fighter in the whole world, Roxanne Modafferi, will be back in action on July 9th:

Roxanne Modafferi and Hitomi Akano will get their chance to square off, albeit six months later than originally planned.

Japanese all-female promotion Jewels Monday announced the addition of a 135-pound bout between Modafferi and Akano (Pictured; file photo) to its July 9 “15th Ring” show at Shinjuku Face in Tokyo. The two Strikeforce veterans were slated to meet at Sengoku “Soul of Fight” on Dec. 30 before a stomach illness sidelined Modafferi on the day of the event.

From Roxy’s facebook:

I want to fight her ten times as much as before.

I want to win 100 times as much as before.

Actually, last December 30th was the worse day in my entire life.  MY ENTIRE LIFE.  I had the chance to fight a really good opponent I’ve been gunning for for YEARS in front of thousands of people in the biggest show in Japan on HDnet….that’s like being invited to the UFC!  On top of that, I never would have thought a woman would even fight ON the card!  And I got sick as a dog the day of the fight.

I’ll show the world a different fighter.  Not a new Roxy, but I’m bringing back the old Roxy.  The Roxy that used to win.  You’ll see…It’s gonna be good.  I’ve already decided that I’m going to win.  I believe that this fight is a turning point.  My life depends on this fight.

This fight is mine.  I will not be stepped on this time.  I will do it.  No excuses.  I’ve never felt so determined before in my life.

    Wrong thread for that. Good to see you have limits!

  • Letibleu

    Only cause it’s Roxy and I am a big fan. Any other post is fair game. I will randomly pick this convo back up in the next volds thread.


    Roxy, if every you read this thread, how have the earthquake /tsunami affected work/training/ life in general? Available information has fallen to a trickle in the mainstream media.

    I am so excited for this fight.  Thanks for the support, guys. lol @ using my ninja pic.


    Letilbeu- well, I’m physically far away from the plant, so I don’t have to worry about glowing the dark.  However, we hear on the Japanese news all time about stuff going well or not going well, like the storage space for the water will be used up …uh right about now. I wonder what they decided to do. I should probably look it up. ^^;;  We have to save electricity, so everyone’s talking about that, and keeping the air conditioning at 82 degrees (28 C) but in reality we put it on 27C/80F, and when we have kids classes, we lower it to 26, but basically, we’re all sweating.  We’re also understaffed at work, because some of my co-workers have fled the country.  Until about last week, we were all feeling over worked.  It’s been really stressful.

    Training has been getting better.  The general mood is kind of depressing- I mean, the country is experiencing a huge disaster and people’s relatives live up there and stuff, and businesses are failing, etc etc.  It’s like the distance from Boston to NJ or something, to put in American geographical terms.


    But anyway, I’m fighting insomnia right now, but I’m in fighting shape!

    Thanks :D

    Thanks for the update Roxy. Makes me feel very gratefull for what I have around me.

    MMa shows are probably a good way to help distract the locals from the reality they are goiung through.

    Can’t wait to see you kick ass!

  • Komodo

    Bring the hammer down Roxy!

  • Letibleu

    And buy some Roxy shirts everyone from the Fightlinker store. They smell like her.
