Interesting Changes for women boxers!
Source: Tom Moraetes
December 15, 2004

(DEC 15) WBAN received notice from Tom Moraetes (WBAN's Ask the Trainer) about some changes that will affect women boxers in the amateurs.  Moraetes told WBAN, "At the USA Boxing convention last week, one major change for the women, the open division will now have four two-minute rounds, just like the men, as opposed to the past three two-minute rounds. Also, the motion to change the standing eight counts for the women from 2 to 3 in one round and four (used to be three) in a complete fight to cause the fight to be stopped was defeated so the women now as before still have two standing eights in ONE round and three in a complete match for the fight to be stopped by the ref."

Torres destroys
Rosales

By Ewan Whyte
December 11, 2004

(DEC 11) Topping the bill in front of a packed house in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl (Mexico), Ana María Torres moved a step closer to the world bantamweight title last night when Golden Gloves champion Yadira Rosales of Mexico City failed to answer the bell for the sixth round. With an animated crowd in the Salón Marbet Plus in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl (Méjico) urging her on, local girl Torres got on top of Rosales at the start and never let up, using her skill and greater experience to wicked effect. Torres has excellent technique and hits hard. As was the case last March when she stopped Lakeysha Williams in the fourth, it was her opponent’s face that got the worst of it. By the time she retired between the fifth and six rounds, Rosales’s mouth was a mess and had begun to hemorrhage.

Valley beat the count and continued to fight, but Ward quickly got her back on the ropes with a barrage of combinations.  When Valley dropped down to her knee, the referee saw fit to stop the match.
