EL PASO, Texas -

Jennifer Han became El Paso's first World Champion in 2015 when she successfully defeated Helen Joseph of Ghana Nigeria in a 10 round bout at the down Haskins Center September 19, 2015.

As a result of this amazing achievement Commissioner Andrew Haggerty petitioned a resolution to recognize Jennifer Han and her accomplishment.

She was awarded a proclamation October 5, 2015 recognizing that September 19 would be known as “Jennifer Han Day”.

"I would like to thank Mr. Andrew Haggerty and the El Paso county commissioners for this this proclamation, and to all my fans and the city of EP for supporting me," Han said. "I am just thankful that everyone continues to support me, and you're going to hear big big news soon, so I hope everyone will cheer me on and let me be your champion."
