  • To honor the iconic Joan Rivers who passed away on Thursday, we’ve added a photo of Rivers along side the ladies who were victorious in their boxing matches on Thursday night. (l to r) Kenia Enriquez, (Joan Rivers), Haley Pasion and Jolene Blackshear, all present, past and future champions. With River’s arms outstretched showing indecision, it’s likely she would have had a hard time picking La Diva del noche, the Diva of the night from the boxing card dubbed, “San Diego Fights: Dangerous Divas.” It’s possible she would have been speechless for the first time in her life.

How ironic, she herself wore a slight variation of the same all-black outfit every day with the Donna Karan sweater, Chanel slacks, Manolo boots, and never ever went out the door without those huge sunglasses. RIP dear lady.
