July 27, 2002 -
Jacqui Frazier-Lyde, 166, stopped Heidi Hartmann, 166,
of Germany in the :50 seconds third round. Amateurish Hartmann,
fought straight up and showed little in her bout against Frazier-Lyde.
This fight was for the WIBF Super- Middleweight
"Intercontinental" Championship, but would have been
more appropriately booked as a six-rounder. Hartman came into the
fight with an official record of three bouts---hardly a resume
for a world title fight. WBAN is sure that world champions Ann
Wolfe, Valerie Mahfood, and other top women boxers would
have been happy to have fought on this Pay-Per-View card tonight. (update
07/28/02: there was confusion on the belt that Frazier and
Hartmann was fighting for. In the German
News it stated that the
belt was for the GBU World title. That is the same
organization that is connected with Barbara Buttrick who is
also the WIBF. On Jacqui
Frazier's website it said, "GBU Title Fight." But
to set the record straight on this belt, it was the WIBF
Intercontinental Super-Middleweight belt.
An interesting Tidbit on the matchmaking of this card, the
Pay-Per-View announced that the matchmaking for ALL the Bouts
was made by SoReal Communications. If you go to www.sorealcommunication.com
it is re-directed to Jacqui Frazier's website, as that is affiliated
with Frazier. Logged
