On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of the WAAR Room
and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing
on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the WAAR Sports YouTube page
Our guest was boxer, actor, and activist Kali Reis, who holds the WBA and WBO 140-pound belts.
We spoke with them by Zoom Monday, June 6.
Besides discussing her boxing career, we discussed her film "Catch the Fair One", for which she was nominated for the prestigious International Spirit Award for best actor. In it she portrayed a Native American boxer who risked her own life to enter the world of sex trafficking to find her missing sister.
Every year, thousands of Native Americans go missing or are murdered. To this date, there is still no database keeping track of these statistics.
The film was co-written by Kali Reis and Josef Wladyka and stars Kali and former women's pro boxer Shelley Vincent.

The No Holds Barred theme song is called "The Heist", which is also available on iTunes by composer Ian Snow
