Maureen Riordon to co-main event Nordic Coliseum Boxing event

Maureen “Baby Face” Riordon will once again lace up the gloves as makes her return to the ring in August.

Riordon is scheduled to face Lita Mae Button  in the co-main event of the Nordic Coliseum Boxing event, Aug. 15 in a Super Lightweight contest. This is one of nine bouts scheduled for the event, which takes place in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. The event will stream live on GoFightLive.tv.

The Baby Face warrior is coming off an impressive win over Brenda “The Southern Queen” Rodriguez in a kickboxing bout at Glory 16 earlier this month. Riordon and Rodriguez became the first two women to compete in the Glory ring. Riordon has experience in MMA, boxing and kickboxing, which will help her in this fight.
