WMGK’S POSNER TO BOX OCTOMOM
Bala Cynwyd, PA (June 20, 2011): 102.9 WMGK morning co-host Jen Posner announced today on the John DeBella Show that she has agreed to box Nadya Suleman, known to most of the world as, The Octomom. Suleman is a mother of 14. Posner is a mother of two (Liam and Lila) and her “ring name” will be “G.I. Jen”.
Posner read about Suleman’s desire to find a nonprofessional or untrained female boxer to compete against in a Thursday June 16th column written by the Daily News’ Dan Gross, and decided she was up to the challenge.
“I’m looking forward to exchanging blows with the Octomom. A little bit of competition is good for the soul. And, when it is over, I look forward to returning home to my normal-sized, manageable family,” said Posner.
The 3-minute bout will take place on June 29th at Pennant East (141 Crescent Blvd in Bellmawr, NJ). Both women will fight in oversized boxing gloves, and headgear. The bout will be guest refereed by Kim G. from the TV show, Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Tickets are $20 and on sale through webtix.net. If you enter the promo code “JEN” when purchasing tickets, $9 will benefit the Philadelphia Veterans’ Multi-Service Education Center. The event can also be watched online at battlecam.com. The bout was arranged by local promoter Damon Feldman.
