USA’s Karen Q squares off with China’s Xia Li

Karen Q vs. Xia Li

Expect breakneck speed and plenty of vicious strikes when returning Mae Young Classic competitor Xia Li takes on independent wrestling sensation Karen Q in a First-Round Match.

Li, a kung fu expert from China, famously made her in-ring debut at last year’s Mae Young Classic. Though she was eliminated by the highly experienced Mercedes Martinez, Li showed incredible poise and promise considering the high-pressure circumstances of her maiden voyage.

Li looks to bounce back in this year’s tourney, but standing in her way is Karen Q, a highly touted technician from the North American independent wrestling circuit. Q brings a dynamic offense filled with submission holds, strikes and high flying (which is no doubt influenced by her years of high-level gymnastics experience).

Will Karen Q taste victory on the biggest stage of her career, or will Xia Li build upon the unforgettable impression she made in last year’s event and advance to the Second Round?
