Miriam Nakamoto - Nakamoto has gone 4-0 in 2010, and she still has one fight left that will be taking place on Dec. 18th against Chantal Ughi. Notable wins include Angela Parr, and a historic first round TKO against Claire Haigh that made Miriam the first American woman to hold a WBC title.
Ky Hollenbeck - Hollenbeck has gone 5-0-1 in 2010, including KO's in his last three bouts.

Hollenbeck's wins include KO's over Kenny Finister, and Shawn Lee.
