Schoolzonehats Boxer Shelly "Shelito's Way" Vincent will be back in the ring at 50 Cent Birthday Bash special edition ESPN Friday Night Fights on July 2nd! Coming off a recent dominant victory at Mohegan Sun which brought Shelito out of a six month plus absence from the ring, Shelly's back at it in this huge ESPN televised event promoted by 50 Cent's SMS Promotions. She will rematch against Nydia Feliciano who she last fought in 2013.


In a recent interview with Pattee Mak of Shelly described how tenaciously she's been seeking a bout with undefeated Heather "The Heat" Hardy who sits just below Shelito in women's boxing rankings at numbers 2 and 3. Hardy's most recent fight at Barclay's Center against Jackie Trivilino ended in a strange and controversial decision in Hardy's favor which left the crowd and multiple members of the media covering the fight in an uproar. In post fight comments, Trivilino strongly suggested that the decision was unfair and made to favor the hometown favorite Hardy. With an ice pack covering a badly damaged eye, Hardy said "I'm totally willing to do anything.. that my promoter tells me to do."


As Shelly also describes in the interview, she has been training extremely hard as of late and feels as strong as ever. She has been training in Hardy's neck of the woods: Brooklyn. As well as at Cronan's Gym The Fitness Factory as featured in the previous video we filmed with her, and of course she's still training as hard as ever with one of the industry's best Peter Manfredo Sr.
