July 27, 2002 – Budapest, Hungary
Boxing card promoted by Blue Alligator Box Promotion, Jr. Lightweights Julia Gregor, Hungary, TKO2 Katalin Schaffer, Hungary, in a scheduled four-rounder.

July 27, 2002 - Norfolk, Virginia
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 on records site
