With all the hype that surrounds this Saturday’s Strikeforce event on CBS, it is little wonder why there isn’t much hype for the Strikeforce Challenger’s series in Fresno, which will air on Showtime tonight. But it’s not to say that there isn’t an exciting women’s match coming our way live on television.
Fresno native Zoila Frausto is hoping to continue her undefeated streak when she faces Elisha Helsper, who is coming off a loss to Lisa Ward.
Frausto weighed in at a fit 132.5 pounds, and admitted to me that she had loss 15 pounds coming into the fight and looked in the best shape of her life. Helsper has got two pounds weight advantage going into the fight, weighing in at 134.5 pounds.
Both women are looking for a knockout early with a kick in the first round, and it looks like this will be a drag out, stand up affair.
““I know she’s (Helsper) going to come out swinging, I just have to be able to weather the storm,” Frausto stated. ” I’d love to get a knockout on Friday night. I haven’t had one yet, so it’s about my time.”
“I think I’ll be able to shake off the cage rust. If anything, I think it will make me more aggressive,” Helsper admits. “I need to give it my all and not give up. I’ve got the skills to win, I just need to put it all together.”
