Ronica Jeffrey Wins IWBF Title
by Bernie McCoy
May 25, 2013
     
   
   

(MAY 25)  Ronica Jeffrey won the IWBF Super featherweight title with a decisive ten round decision over Olivia Gerula Friday night at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY. The bout was Diane Lee Fishcher-Cristiano's (Dee Lee Promotions) initial foray into the New York metropolitan area and the female bout topped a seven bout card that heralded boxing's return to the historic County Center after several years absence.

After Jeffrey and Gerula traded the opening two rounds, the new champion seemed to shift into a different gear in the third stanza. Jeffrey's fast hands got faster, her in and out movement got quicker, and her ring speed kept her away from courageous attempts by Gerula to slow down the new champion with counterpunching tactics. For the next eight rounds, each two minute stanza took on a mirror like pattern: Jeffrey constantly moving around the ring, suddenly, quickly closing on Gerula, landing head and body shots and just as quickly, moving out of Gerula's punching range. Gerula, to her credit maintained a dogged pressure on Jeffrey throughout those eight rounds, and, at times, managed to force the new champion to the ropes or a corner, taking the opportunity to land an overhand left hook or right cross, but the game effort fell short.

The judges cards were as decisive as the description of those final eight rounds: Julie Lederman and Dan Ackerman scored the bout 99-91, while Frank Lombardi totaled 98-92, raising Jeffrey's record to 13-0, while dropping Gerula to 13-14-2.
