On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with the voice of MMA in south Florida, Jen Boronico
Jen is currently a color commentator for Fight Zone TV as well as for various MMA shows both in Florida and around the U.S., and has also covered boxing in the past. She has competed in several disciplines herself, winning grappling titles at NAGA events and boxing in the Golden Gloves. Besides training at American Top Team, she owns a chain of tanning clubs as well as running and performing in a rock band called Pandia.
We spoke with her Tuesday by phone about some of the recent MMA events she has covered, the media and the role of women, and women fighters in MMA. She covered the Fight Time Promotions card on Friday, February 18, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where she said the fight between Caleb Archer and Aaron Cerda, won by Archer by unanimous decision, was the best fight she has seen live this year.
She also will be covering the 2011 South Florida Fight Expo, which runs Thursday, February 24, through Sunday, February 27, in Miami, Florida, and performing with her band there. Besides numerous exhibits, this event will feature competition in various forms of combat sports, including MMA, boxing, and Muay Thai.
