gloves, face and body and could not detect any odor.
The fight was stopped at that point and declared a

Fight report on the Vonda Ward vs. Lana Jock fight:
At the opening bell Lana came flying across the ring wind milling
looking as if she was trying to tackle Vonda. Vonda fired a couple strong
jabs and rights and Lana went down. She bounced back up trying to attack but
received an 8 count. She came out firing ineffectually, still
wind milling and wild. Connected with one or two but paid dearly for them. Lana was off
balance with little technique. She slipped and fell while it looked like she
was trying to bore in. She got up a little more slowly but continued to
attack. Vonda kept her composure easily and weathered the windmill while
firing very powerful straight jabs and rights. She connected with most and
landed a powerful right. Lana went down for the count and was counted out at
:52 seconds. Lana didn't get up for several minutes but appeared ok later
and was upset with her performance.
