NABF President Duane Ford announced today a change to the Female Division.  After three and a half years as Chairperson of the NABF Female Committee, Paula Mclellan has stepped aside to take care of business in her personal life.   

The new Chairperson will be Deborah Hawkins of Dallas Texas.  Deborah has spent a lifetime giving service to others and has served on numerous committees for the NABF and WBC.   She will also continue her role handling Public Relations for the NABF.

 "I am very excited to work with the amazing women who are fighting in the ring. Several fights are scheduled for this

spring and I will be looking for more opportunities to add a Female NABF title fight to cards around North America", said Deborah in an interview. It all starts with the Detroit card on March 10, featuring Claressa Shields and Szilvia Szabados, and Paula Mclellan's efforts - watch it live on ShoBox - The New Generation!

The NABF expresses our deepest appreciation and thanks to our dear friend Paula Mclellan and wish her the very best in the future.
