May 11, 2001 -Sequoia Conference Center, Buena Park, California
On the undercard of an all-Muay Thai event, Claudia Vidaurri won a 3-round match by unanimous decision over Michelle Zambrana. The scheduled co-main event, a 5-round match for the vacant UWMTA women's lightweight championship was cancelled due to  Marlowe McCray's opponent not showing up.  McCray became the champion by default.  Apparently McCray's scheduled opponent, Lissete Pelayo, called the promoter the night before to pull out of the match. This was disappointing, not only to the audience, but to Ms. McCray, who had been training very hard for the last three months in preparation for the fight.  Also on the undercard, in a 3-round match between two intermediate level fighters, Mia Madison won by unanimous decision over a late substitute for her scheduled opponent.  CraigO, who covered the fight said, "I have to add that a couple of the men's matches were spectacular and incredibly intense, namely Paul Rivas vs. Chrisostomo(?), who was substituting for Rivas' original opponent), and Jack Thames vs Henry Cho for the middleweight championship. This wasn't one of those nights when the women put on better fights than the men, even to an admittedly partial observer."  The card was put on by Vut Kamnark and was well- attended by a very enthusiastic crowd.   Among those in attendance: Benny "the Jet" Urquidez, who had one of the fighters under his tutelage in the main event.  Also, Casey Noland, a woman no-holds-barred fighter who was part of a contingent from the San Luis Obispo Kickboxing School to cheer on one of their fighters, Mr. Cho, in his bone-crunching victory over Mr. Thames.  Report submitted by Craigo, May 12, 2001

May 8, 2001, IC Light Amphitheater, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (ESPN2 Tuesday Night Fights)

This four-rounder was the third fight in the inaugural boxing card presented on ESPN2's Tuesday Night Fights.  Burton (3-1-1) proved to be too technically proficient against late-replacement Gardner (1-1) and the match was stopped at 1:40 of round four, with Burton taking the TKO victory. Gardner was game but somewhat overweight and under-trained. (Taken off Boxing rumble Forum board)
