July 29, 2003 - Rodeo NIghts card - Phoenix, Arizona -Report by Dale Hausner Amateur
In some amateur action, Leslie Sonnenklar, 168, stopped Chrystal Proctor, 182, in two rounds.  This was billed as a grudge match as the two girls tried in vain for months to get together for a round of fisticuffs.  After a wild first round, Leslie settled down and went back to the basics. Leslie jabbed well and moved side to side, eventually busting Proctor's nose into a bloody mess. Proctor had taken enough of a beating and surrendered after round two. Leslie was bruised as well but hung tough for the TKO win. The crowd was really into this fight from the opening bell. Their energy rubbed off on the fighters. Sonnenklar is hoping to resume her boxing career soon but lack of women in her weight class often hinders her fighting prospects. Sonnenklar is trained by former Welterweight Champion Eric Hernandez and his brother, Carlos. The bout was co-promoted by Peter McKinn and by Larry Webster with Arizona Presents.

July 5, 2003 - Del Mar Far, Del Mar, California
Miriam Rosario
, now 1-1-0 won a four-round unanimous decision over Rosa Ponce, now 0-3-0. Report by Mel Baron: On of July 5th, I saw a star in the ring. This shorter than average women was pleasing the few thousand boxing fans who watched a 4-round, intensive fight as part of the annual boxing show at the Del Mar Fair, in Del Mar, CA, 20 minutes north of San Diego. Her name was Miriam Rosario (1-1), a 5'2" female boxer from Los Angeles, CA, training out of the Azteca Boxing Club in Bell, CA.  She has been in the fight game for three years. Her amateur record was fifteen wins and five losses. At 18 years old, she has the skills to be a great professional pugilist. Her opponent  was Rosa Ponce, a feisty, also short local gal from El Cajon, CA. She came in with an (0-2) record. Both fighters were not afraid to stand in there and fight for the full two-minute rounds.  Even though Ponce went hard to Rosario’s body, she was not able to overcome her weak defensive skills. Rosario, a focused fighter would send straight rights and nice left hooks in-between Ponce's slow punches. I give Ponce a 10 for courage, but in the ring skills are more important. Rosario has the making of a champion fighter, who I hope will weather the boxing pitfalls and shine. Each boxer received $800 for her efforts.

Conley went on to write, that one round later, Moreno circled like a shark to chum. She backed Barraza into a corner once again and continued the punishment. With about 12 seconds left in the bout, the referee asked Barraza if she was OK to continue. She nodded yes. Moreno swooped back in for the final blow, another huge right to the swelling mass of red at the center of Barraza’s face just before the bell rang.  Barraza's camp verified that in the last round, she broke her nose in that last round.
