Kali Reis  a.k.a “KO” is the first Native American professional female boxer to come out of New England. Her rich heritage includes Seaconke Wampanoag blood. This dynamic athlete honors her tribal
bloodline, which also includes Cherokee and Nipmuc ancestry, while she fights as an inspiration for all nations.

Native Boxing Fans have a reason to rejoice...Kali!

Kali had a challenging childhood.Struggling, this young talent grew up in the tough neighborhoods of Providence, Rhode Island. Obstacles led many others into addictions and crime, but only sparked this strong Native's interest in boxing.

Kali...AKA...KO is a champ for ALL Native People!

 

Kali has always been athletic, always the class clown, who did well in school. Kali went on to study Criminal Justice, then learned to fix motorcycles at MTTI. She began her boxing career 13 years ago with Peter Manfredo Sr. and Roland Estrada. Still training with them, Kali is working towards a world title. She is currently 6-3-1 with 2 knockouts.

KO fights in honor of all Native Nations!

In honor of Native American Heritage Month, Kali dedicates her strength to fighting in honor of all nations. On November 21, 2014, she is fighting in Bermuda. Historically, the Wampangoag and Natives in Bermuda have relations due to the slave trade shortly after the King Phillip's war around the 1670’s. The Wampanaog people feel honored that there will be a Wampanoag fighting in Bermuda during Native American Heritage Month. This represents a historical moment for the Wampanoag Nation, for the Northeast Tribes and for all Native Nations.
