  December 27, 2001 - Irvine Marriott, Irvine, California
Rita Valentini won her pro debut when she stopped Kim Reed :27 in the second round. Fight report by WBAN's Inside report:  Roy Englebrecht Promotions put on the final class act card of 2001 in Southern California. The " Battle in the Ballroom" drew an almost sold out crowd. There were five fights on the card with the women as the third bout.  Kim Reed, 37 years old, with a record of 1-4 weighed in at 124 lbs. and Rita Valentini, 31 weighed in at 122 1/2.  Prior to the fight Rita expressed that she was ready and felt, "good, relaxed and anxious". She also explained that she was usually a bantamweight, as she weighed-in fully clothed. Her trainer, Jesse Mercado, said that he wanted to train this Canadian-born fighter, because ,"he saw her intensity". A number of things were weighing on Ms. Reed's mind. Reed's trainer, Sean Carrigan, was not present for this fight. Instead, Reed had Cassius Green (cutman) and Dr. George Del Junco in her corner. The commission also had suspended Kim's boxing license prior to this fight for eight months, and this fight was to determine the future of her boxing career.   Valentini, in all black, was all business as she approached the ring. The crowd, upon hearing the records of the women, immediately favored Valentini. Round 1, proved that the vehement look that showed on Rita's face was no show. As the bell rang, Valentini attacked Reed with a barrage of straight punches to the head. Reed was knocked back several times, putting her head down, but did stay up. Valentini definitely threw punches that landed solidly and cleanly and exhibited more than effective aggressiveness. She didn't have much opportunity to avoid blows, because there was never more than one or two punches at a time thrown by Reed. Round 2 was much of the same, with Reed coming out with slow ineffective punches. Reed has a big heart, but could not stand up against the consistent punching of Valentini. Twenty-seven seconds into round 2, after having 1 standing eight count, the referee stopped the match.  Reed's record to 1-5, and Valentini has her first professional win by way of knockout.  Valentini comes from the amateurs and has a 4-1 record, and is now 1-0-0 (1KO) as a pro.

BUDAPEST (DEC 15) Last night, as predicted by WBAN's Spain Correspondent, Fernando Rojo, Silvia Leon, (63,90kg) was apparently no match for WIBF World Jr. Welterweight World champion Agnieszka Rylik, (64,00kg).  According to boxing record sources, Leon has a reported 1-0 record and has not fought in over a year.  The fight between Rylik and Leon was scheduled for six rounds in the lightweight division, but it lasted only four.  According to the Polish Boxing Promotion, they reported the following:  In the first round,  Rylik went right into an attack, backing up Leon into the ropes, scoring with combinations, that lead Leon  to circle around around with her hands in a guarded position to ward off the barrage of punches from Rylik.  In the second round, Rylik was basically picking Leon apart with getting nailed with clean shots that tested her chin, and that Leon was showing little boxing skill.   In the third round,  Rylik was "winging in hooks" while her Leon was "having to hang on for dear life."  Leon was grabbing Rylik several times,  just to avoid being knocked out.  According to this source Leon appeared to have a broken nose, which lead her corner to stop the fight after the third round.  In the second's women's bout, a scheduled four-rounder super-bantamweight bout, Bettina Csabi,  53,30kg, of Hungary defeated Cristina Gutierrez, 53,40kg of Spain by a decision.
