Once again, Chevelle Hallback (28-7-2) will travel outside the United States to challenge another elite female fighter, Myriam LeMare (19-3) for her IBF 140 pound title on November 5 at the Palais des Sports de Toulon, in Toulon, France. Chevelle has traveled this road before, and accepts it as the reality of her career. “I’ve got to go far and wide to fight the best,” she said. “I am so excited about getting back into the ring and fighting in France is a plus! I’ve fought in Canada, Japan, Denmark, and now France. I am on my way to being internationally known with fans all over the world……..LET’S GET IT. I need to bring this title home, and when I do, create some more opportunities.”
Bill Calogero, Chevelle’s advisor is in agreement. “Chevelle fighting in France is a means to an end,” he said. “In the long run, we’d like a rematch with Cecilia Braehkus and so we have to go to France and win, to make that happen. After that, I’m not ruling out another fight, a third trip New Mexico. It’s too bad we have to globetrot for the great fights, but Chevy is a warrior and never has or never will dodge her opposition.”
Chevelle arrives in Marseille, France October 29, and is in the midst of training at her gym, Fists of Steel Boxing Academy, In Tampa, Fl. “I’m doing the work, and am ready to go and get the reward,” she said.
