Barber’s Committment to Her Coach
After winning nine belts in the amateur ranks, including a two-time national champion, Jennifer “The Razor” Barber fights for her first professional belt on September 20 in Commerce City, Co. Barber who is 7-0 (4 KO’s) takes on Brooke “No Mercy” Dierdorff 4-3-1 (3 KO’s) for the vacant NABF feather weight title. “I am excited to have the opportunity to fight for the NABF title… it just makes me want to train hard. It feels good to see all the hard work and sacrifice is starting to pay off,” stated Barber. Jennifer entered the pro ranks with a sour taste in her mouth losing her last amateur bout in the 2006 National Pal Tournament in Colorado Springs, Co. “Jenny was upset with the judges decision at that tournament and vowed to me that when she turns pro she won’t leave the fight in the judges hand,” admitted coach Stan Ward. After winning her first two professional fights by unanimous decision (40-36), Barber took a leave of absence from her career working with adolescents a year ago, so she can spend more time training. “After my first two pro fights I just didn’t feel like I was performing to my best and living up to my promise, so I decided to sacrifice financially to follow my dream and commitment I made to my coach. I don’t want my fights to be in the judges hands.” Since taking a leave of absence Barber has knocked out four of her five next opponents living up to the promise she made to her coach.
