Southwest Fight News was in attendance today, at the Golden Boy/Golden Girl Productions press conference for the Maldonado VS. Carcamo card, at Santa Anna Casino. Stephanie “Golden Girl” Jaramillo was exited to be promoting the event in tandem with Oscar de la Hoya’s Golden Boy Productions. She expressed gratitude to her husband Dominic Gonzales for helping make her dreams of being a promoter come true. She was also thankful to the fighters for competing on the upcoming card, and promised to “fight for them because she’s not just a promoter, but also a fighter” Stephanie has broken boundaries as a female promoter and the upcoming April 28th event will be no exception.
