  Elena Reid Returns Home with a Draw Against Regina Halmich  Hot Comments!
By David A. Avila -
Maxboxing.com Round by round

(SEPT 12) After a fierce 10 rounds against Germany’s WIBF flyweight champion, Elena “Baby Doll” Reid returned home without the belt but a smile on her face.

“They were so wonderful to me,” said Reid of her experience in Germany.

In her first world title bout Reid engaged female prizefighting’s most experienced world champion Regina Halmich at DM Arena in Karlsruhe, Germany before more than 4,000 rabid fans.

“It was very exciting,” said Reid (14-1-5), who had never been to Europe before spending several days promoting the fight in Germany. “The people were so nice to me everywhere I went.”

Inside the ring, the always-smiling Reid faced Halmich (45-1-1), a veteran fighter of numerous clashes in defense of the several world titles she has picked up in her long career. It’s a career that has spanned more than 10 years as a professional including 40 title fights. In that time she had only suffered one loss and no draws.

That was until yesterday.

The left-handed Reid who has changed back to a more marauding aggressive style after experimenting with a classic boxing mode, was set to see who would blink first. Both Reid and Halmich have the same juggernaut approach to boxing, never a step backward.

“I felt I was able to hit her with everything I threw,” said Reid, 22. “She was a very tough fighter.”

Chris Ben, Reid’s trainer, said the plan was to attack and use the left. Both Reid and Ben felt they were able to achieve their goal successfully.

“She hit Regina every time she threw a left,” said Ben who worked her corner. “She was snapping her head back with jabs and lefts.”

Halmich, 27, reportedly suffered cuts and bumps on her face from Reid’s punishing blows, but never stopped trying.

“You have to hand it to Regina, she is one tough girl,” said Ben, adding that other fighters might have quit under the same pressure. “Elena was too strong for her.”

By the end of the first half of the fight, the crowd had swayed over to Reid.

“They were cheering for Elena and calling out Baby Doll, Baby Doll,” said Ben.

When the fight ended Halmich walked over to congratulate Reid on her performance.

“She told me she would give me another fight,” said Reid, who felt she won every round in the fight.

The judges scored it 98-94 Halmich, 97-93 Reid and 97-97 for a draw. It’s Reid’s fifth draw and Halmich’s first.

The media called two of the judges scores “scandalous”. The television commentator interviewing Halmich told her they felt she lost convincingly.

“She was mad at the television guys cause they told her she lost the fight,” said Reid, adding that Halmich fought bravely and never stopped trying. “The people there treated me so well. I’ll never forget them. They were really wonderful people.

"No uppercut, then?" asks Halmich. "No," comes the reply. "Do you think you need it?" (I) 

 
 


"Beautiful round!" Reid's trainer tells her, but she
knows full well it was not.
