(APR 30) Last night a
Women's fight was televised on Fox Sports 2 (FS2) on a
Mayweather Promotions card in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Sam's
Town Hotel & Casino.
Local TMT Fighter "Amazing" Layla McCarter, 142, took on
the very tough Szilvia Szabados 147, from Miskolc, Hungary in an
McCarter wanted to fight three
minute rounds which she has been lobbying for for many years but
Szabados declined because she said, "If they aren't going to pay
me for three-minute rounds, I will only fight two-minute
McCarter came out of the corner
in the first round in a lock and load mode and unleashed a
barrage of punches. Szabados attempted to get off a few
punches of her own and stood firmly against the multi-time World
Szabados is coming off a loss
from her last fight against two-time Olympic Gold Medalist
Claressa Shields so she is no stranger on taking on the best.
McCarter stopped Szilvia, which
appeared to be from a body shot as she turn her back and
appeared to be in pain, the Ref Tony Weeks immediately stopped
the fight at the 56 sec. of the 7th round.
WBAN would like
to thank Las Vegas Photographer Mary Ann Owen, for the great
photos and write up on this bout that took place last night.
A big congrats to Layla McCarter, and we are very excited to see
her signed with Mayweather promotions....very deserving to this
great multi-world champion! Sue TL Fox
