June 29 - 30, 2001 DAYTON WOMEN'S INVITATIONAL,
Westwood Rec. Center, 611 Leland
Ave., Dayton, OH - Amateurs
The first ever all-female boxing tournament in Ohio attracted more than 50
women amateurs to Dayton Friday and Saturday, June 29 and 30, where 21 bouts
were held over the two nights at the Westwood Recreation Center, 611 Leland
Ave. Thirteen bouts were fought Friday evening and nine
Saturday. The program was distinguished by excellent pairings, arrived at by
Al Carson and Jeaneene Hildebrandt, who were in charge of the show. A modest
but enthusiastic crowd of about 100 turned out for Friday's matches.
Naturally, the Dayton women boxers got most of the support but solid
appreciation for good effort went to out of towners who provided a majority
of the entrants. Boxers from New York, Georgia, Canada, Indiana, Kentucky,
Illinois, Michigan and, of course, Ohio registered for the historic
inaugural event. Many expressed the hope that the tournament will be a
regular yearly event. Boxing generally was sharp, fast paced and
aggressive in all categories from junior olympics to championship bouts.
Clean, hard punching with good defensive skills and enthusiastic effort made
the program memorable, especially when it is considered that this was first
event of its kind for the area. Officiating was top notch and the few
minutes late in starting was excusable paricukarly when the matches were
such crowd pleasers. All the women acquitted themselves well. Regrettably,
some boxers left after the first night leaving some contestants stranded
without opponents in their weight classes. This was a small problem, but a
problem nontheless. Saturday's bouts received enthusiastic
response from a reduced crowd compared with Friday's audience. A number of
the women boxers did not stay over for the two evenings of boxing and what
might have been a dozen of more matches turned out to be just eight.
For the first time out, the event may be called a rousing success
despite modest attendance by fans and a somewhat disappointing number
of women who actually were matched to box compared with the number who
expressed interest in competing. Hildebrandt suggested that once the show
gets to be known and becomes a fixture on boxers' calendars better
participation can be expected. In any event, the first ever all-women
boxing show in Ohio went off very well and the headache Hildebrandt said she
was experiencing the day after the program should have not been a major one.
She and Carson could be proud of their first effort in the Buckeye state.

Mcnaulty from Rory Bussy decisioned Sacred Downing from New Jersey;
(excellent fight) 156lbs., a very tired Rosaline Moraliss from Allentown, Pa., who in my humble opinion, makes Ali and Frazier
look like amateurs when she is at the top of her game, managed to pull off a
decision against a tough game opponent in Angel Bovee from New York. Rosaline
is trained at the Phoenix Boxing Club in Allentown; No results from matches 6 & 7 but in match 6, which was at

June 23, 2001 - Carlton, Minnesota - Black
In a long-awaited showdown between the reigning US champion and current US
National Tournament champion, Rebecca "Pitbull" Preacher of
Simpsonville, South Carolina defeated Jennifer Thysen of DePree,
Wisconsin by technical knockout in the 4th round to win their fight for
Thysen's IKF Amateur US Welterweight title (Full Contact Rules). The referee
stopped the fight after Preacher knocked Thysen down in the 4th round for an
8-count. The fight was scheduled for 5 rounds. The history
behind this rematch is reported on the IKF current-news page. The source for
the result is Ray Thompson's Upstate Karate website - Mr. Thompson is
Rebecca Preacher's trainer. His report features a
rather frank and interesting account of the "fight before the
fight", the psychological battle for dominance between the two women
seconds at the weigh-in. He also reports that Preacher dominated the fight,
scoring heavily and breaking her opponent's nose in the 2nd
round, and almost causing Thysen to quit before the 4th round. I haven't
verified the result independently of this, but I have no reason to doubt the
result although the story, naturally, is told from one side. ( A special
thanks to Craig for sending this result into WBAN!)

Sullivan Arena, Anchorage, Alaska (And the first professional boxing
card to hit the city in nearly 10 years.)
Two women bouts on the "Dangerous Curve" promotions- Valerie
Henin, 146 3/4, and Patricia
Demick, 144 1/2, fought to a majority draw, and Henin remained the
WIBF champion. Final scoring on judging was 95-95 95-95 96-94. On
an editorial written by J.R. Rardon of the Anchorage Daily News, he wrote,
crowd of perhaps 500 fans "filled" Sullivan Arena for the
four-fight card where they witnessed a disputed majority draw in the
WIBF super-welterweight championship bout."
Rardon went on to say, "Certainly, the fans brought plenty of
noise. Much of it came in the form of booing, after the judges ruled
narrowly in favor of WIBF champion Valerie Henin in her 10-round super
welterweight title fight against Patricia Demick. In a classic
contrast of styles, the crowd fell in behind the big-punching Demick, who
finished with a flurry but was probably hurt by staying away from the clean
jabs of the taller Henin in the early rounds." Demick told the
reporter, "If I would have closed more, I might have been better,"
said Demick (6-3), a native of Villa Del Mar, Chile, who trains and fights
out of Miami. "I felt like I win the fight." Apparently the crowd
agreed with a round of boos after the final scoring was announced. Also,
Sjauw,147 1/2, won a unanimous decision against Kelly Whaley,
151. Final scoring was 80-72 79-73 79-73. Sjauw
improved her record to 19-5-1 (5 KO's); Whaley fell to 3-8, 1 KO. Source

her entourage carrying her two championship belts. World heavyweight
champion Hasim Rahman, her friend and co-trainee at the Round 1 Gym in
Baltimore, Md., was carrying one of them. After all this fanfare, it
wasn’t an easy night for Girgrah, but she left the ring a little less than
an hour later wearing a third belt. Using ring generalship, Girgrah
came on to outpoint brawling Snodene Blakeney of Austin, Tex., over 10
rounds. She won the vacant Women’s International Boxing Federation

the bout began. She never let up, but Girgrah found the range from the
fourth round on, and generally landed better punches. Judge John Reilly and
Luis Rivera both scored it 97-93 for Girgrah, and judge Alan Rubinstein had
