Holly Holm

In the beginning (according to Wikipedia)….

Holly Holm was born on October 17, 1981 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Holm grew up in Bosque Farms, New Mexico and graduated from Manzano High School in 2000, then studied for a year at the University of New Mexico. She played soccer  and tried gymnastics, swimming and diving before getting into boxing and kickboxing. Holly’s path to a boxing career began with aerobics. Her aerobics instructor was Mike Winkeljohn.

THE REAL DEAL (according to our sources):

Her father was a pastor father at Bosque Farms Church of Christ for 18 years. This is how she earned the nickname as the preacher’s daughter. He was a big supporter and fan on her career. She is what you would call a “daddy’s girl.”

Her mom was unfortunately not so supportive of her professional fighting decision. She wished that Holly would pursue another career that wasn’t as violent and as physical as boxing. Holly was apparently very smart and good with her studies.
