ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The city of Albuquerque is working to finalize plans for a celebration for UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm when she returns to her hometown.

A celebration and parade for the fighter is planned for Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. in downtown Albuquerque. Holm will be honored in a ceremony at Civic Plaza after the parade.

The City Council declared November “Holly Holm Month” after she captured the belt from the previously undefeated Ronda Rousey on Nov. 14 in Australia.

City officials say Sunday’s celebration will double as a donation bank for winter clothing to benefit the Albuquerque Rescue Mission and Albuquerque Christian Children’s home.
