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.

Ada skills pulled through the fight showing why she is the champ." 
Williams Decisions Drexel at the Dover Downs!

June 23, 2001, Terry Nye's Amateur Tournament, Pennsylvania
In a heavyweight matchup at 220lbs, Michele Cooley from Upper Darby, Pa. decisioned Celia Villacres from New York; 145lb match, Patty Mason from Nyes'Gym outpointed Kim Stowe from another local Gym called Champs;  In a mens' cruiserweight matchup, (194lb.) Mike Jackson from Champs Gym outpointed Brian Ohnmeiss from Nyes'.; 128lb matchup, two 14 year old girls went at it and Keriann 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 112lb., Vanessa Greco from New York was matched up with Lindsay Knight from Columbiana, Ohio; and in match 7, two more 14 year olds were to do battle at 145lbs. with Alisha Yakavich of Erie, Pa. vs. Ashlyn Huron from Ohio-Robin; 147lbs.

June 23, 2001 - Carlton, Minnesota - Black Bear Casino
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 and their 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!)

June 16, 2001 - 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,
"A 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,  Marischa 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.

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 junior-lightweight championship. Girgrah, 128-pounds, improved to 18-3, with eight knockouts. Blakeney, who weighed in at the junior-lightweight limit of 130 pounds, ignored her underdog role and flailed away with both hands as 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 it 97-94. The Press scored it 98-95 for Girgrah.
