BYB Extreme Bare Knuckle Fighting Series Announces Addition of Jewlz Grey to Help Oversee Growing Women’s Roster
Grey joins Director of Competition/Matchmaker Mel Valenzuela and is expected to take a prominent role in BYB leadership and growth.
MIAMI, FL – Since its inception, BYB Extreme has sought to showcase fighters from all walks of life and specifically put talented female fighters in high-profile fights and positions to shine. In 2021, BYB crowned its first ever champion in any division, male or female, when Paty Juarez won the 135 pound title over Christine “Knuckles” Stanley in a slugfest in Miami. BYB kicked off 2022 with combat sports trailblazer Erin Toughill going the distance in a co-main event against national golden gloves champion Sonya Dreiling. This May, as BYB makes its Mississippi debut, it will feature three women’s bouts, including the night’s main event.
Today, BYB Extreme is proud to announce the addition of Jewlz Grey to the BYB Bareknuckle family. Grey will work beside BYB Director of Competition/Matchmaker Mel Valenzuela and help oversee BYB’s growing female roster.
Grey attended college at Texas A&M University-Commerce, studied abroad in four countries, and obtained her degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. Her commitment for public service is exemplary. While at Texas A&M-Commerce, she held a seat on the global policies committee for sex trafficked women, and is currently a member of the Foster Care Alumni Committee in the State of Texas. As someone who herself went through and eventually aged-out of the state’s foster care system, Grey is no stranger to adversity and overcoming obstacles.
Said BYB President Mike Vazquez, “Jewlz will no doubt be a contributing factor to BYB’s future growth and success, and she is a testament to our continued focus on building our organization with the most talented, committed and ethical professionals in combat sports.”
