TAZ awarded WBAN commemorative patch
Following Tammie Johnson's fight against the undefeated Rita Figueroa last month, it was learned that Johnson would be receiving the prestigious WBAN commemorative patch.
The WBAN patch is only awarded to female boxers ranked in the top three of their weight class, or for exceptions such as taking on extraordinary hard fights, fights out of town, those who take on all comers and who are role models for women boxers in the sport. More on the patch can be found here.
Johnson's last three opponents had a combined record of 26-2, including her last fight going to Chicago where Figueroa was 10-0. Johnson will be taking on another undefeated fighter April 11 when she challenges the 3-0 Sarah Pucek.
