ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque’s Holly Holm announced at a press conference today that she is retiring from boxing to focus on her mixed martial arts career.
Her last professional boxing fight will be May 11 against Mary McGee at Route 66 Casino Hotel.
“I sleep good at night,” an emotional Holm said, “knowing that I’ve challenged myself over my career rather than just take what’s supposed to be easy.
“… I feel like my passion’s just going to MMA.”
