Sjauw moved her record to 12-4-0 (3KO), and Mueller received her first loss as a pro boxer with her record dropping to 5-1-0 (2KO).

December 16, 2000 in Santa Fé de Bogota, Colombian Capital City, Shown on national TV : Darys Pardo vs. Liliana Palmera. 
Fight report from the Columbian Friend:  The match up between Darys Pardo and Liliana Palmera was an excellent match and worthy to be shown on television.  It was the best fight that I have seen Pardo fight in---with a worthy opponent as Palmera, Pardo was able to show her real skill, and I noticed that she has progressed a lot and that with her current performance, she is skillful enough to be in a world ranking.  Pardo won by TKO at 13 sec. in the fourth round, after Palmera was down when she received a solid right hand from Pardo in her face with a clean shot.  The TV commentators said that the match was stopped too fast because Palmera was able to continue. In the first round, Pardo went down at 42 seconds but the  referee didn't count it.  Pardo had been hit with a jab in the forehead and it appeared that she was off balance when she went down. Both fighters were too cautious during the fight, probably because both have a long records of knock out and both had respect for each other. Pardo was the aggressor during the fight.  According to the TV information, after the match the records are:  Pardo : 13-0-0 12 KOs and Palmera 15-1-0 12 KOs, however,  according to WIBA sources, the real records are:  Pardo : 14-0-2. & Palmera : 10-1-1 (7 KOs). (The source said the previous Palmera's bout was a draw against Carmenza Sanchez in San Carlos, a town in the Córdoba department, an opponent too weighter for Palmera.)  This was the second female bout shown in the National TV  program "Ring Side", (the previous one was Mariana Culma - Monica Vasquez). One final comment about both matches. These were very worthy to be televised, really good matches, although not excellent. But, very different than the recent circus on American TV as the Foreman-Pembleton fight.

December 16, 2000, Savannah, Georgia
Mitzi Jeter won by a unanimous six-round decision against Christine Robinson from South Carolina, 59-55, 59-55, 60-54.  Jeter's record improves to 14-3-1. Jeter went up in weight to fight this matchup. Jeter said, "Christine has worked hard since we met in the ring about two years ago. She is much stronger and fit. She threw her shots with intent coming out in the first round with a stiff jab and following with two or three combinations. I did not want to let the bigger woman get a power shot off so I would use my jab, head movement and footwork to negate her power. I controlled the first round with a jab and when I would get close enough she would tie me up. I got off body shots and that began to have an effect on her. After the third round (which was her best round) my corner advised me to get off more combinations. That as well as body shots pulled together to give me a clear victory. Christine was very strong. This was a good fight for women's boxing and just a good fight overall. "  

On December 15, 2000, at the War Memorial Auditorium, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Ada "Ace" Valez (120 1/2)
won by an eight-round unanimous decision over Linda Tenberg (122) (4-2). Valez earned the WIBF N. American Title.  Ryan Wissow covered this fight and he reported the following:  "The fight was a non-stop slugfest from start to finish.  Tenberg was cut in the 1st round and Velez was all over her for the first 4 rounds.  Velez played defense for the last 4 rounds, while Tenburg stayed in there fighting all the way, showing tremendous heart. Scores were 80-72, 80-72, 80-71." Ryan said that he gave Tenburg a few rounds, but Velez was the clear-cut winner, in what was by far the best fight of the night.  The second women's bout on the card  between Patricia Demick (143) and. Dawne George (146) resulted in Demick winning by a TKO in the third round.  Ryan reported that Demick started out quickly, dropping George in the 1st round with a right hand. George looked like she was outworking Demick in the second round, backing Demick up on the ropes and making it an inside fight. At the end of the second round, Demick caught George with a combo that had George wobbled. Demick closed the show in the 3rd round when George w as out on her feet and the ref stopped the fight.  (A special thanks to Ryan Wissow for covering this fight for WBAN.)

December 15, 2000, Madison, WI 
Andrea Nelson fought in a scheduled four-round bout against Willicia Moorehead, who was a last minute replacement.  Moorehead did not put up much of a fight against the fast punching Nelson, in which the fight ended 1:39 in the first round.  ESPN2 commentators pulled "no punches" in making strong remarks about the "less than thrilling" women's match of the evening. They went on to describe the match as not a good representation of women's boxing, said that Moorehead had no technique, no preparation, and that she slapped with her punches.  The commentators also made comments with the fact that Moorehead turned her back, and was hit in the back of the head when the referee counted her out.   Nelson came into the fight undefeated, and now reigns a record of 7-0.  Moorehead was reported to have a record of 2-5, but WBAN could only locate a few fights that were all losses.  (Moorehead lost by a split decision 11/02/00 against Yolanda Blackmer; Moorehead KO'd 09/10/00 against Jenier Alcorn; Moorehead TKO'd 10/07/99 by Bridget Benjamin).

December 9, 2000 Tallahassee, FL
Jodi Kombrinck of Blountstown vs. Tasha McDade of Quincy. The fight was a scheduled four-rounder that ended when Kombrinck stopped McDade in the second round. News sources said, "The fans clearly seem willing to rally behind her for as long as she continues fighting. Her future bouts will take place "as often as I need to," Kombrinck said after making her pro debut. But in the meantime there is plenty of work to be done, especially on her defense. McDade was able to land combination punches that left Kombrinck with a bloody nose at the end.  "I don't think I fought my best," she said behind a broad smile. "I felt more comfortable in the gym, but I felt I could have fought eight rounds."
