Valerie "The Wolfe" Mahfood (161
1/2) KO'd Ann Wolfe (162) 1:17 seconds in the
third round. Fight report by Jonathan Cooper: HOUSTON (Nov. 30) – Billed as the woman’s fight of the year, Valerie
“Lone Wolf” Mahfood and Ann “Brown Sugar” Wolf did not disappoint the
1,610 fans in attendance at Browning Boxing’s last fight night of the year Thursday at the Radisson Hotel Astrodome producing three of the
most exciting light heavyweight rounds in recent history. Mahfood (11-3, 7 KOs) scored a stunning knockout at 1:17 in the third
round with a overhead right to the body and a left hook that sent Wolf (5-1, 3 KO) down for the 10-count. Wolf had started strong, sending
Mahfood to the floor within the first 15-second of the fight, but Mahfood was able to recover.
“I was dazed early, she hit me harder than I expected,” Mahfood said. “I
knew she was a lot stronger than me, but my experienced kept me in the fight. I know what it feels like to be knocked out, and I was the better
boxer, and it won me the fight.” Mahfood’s experience began to show in the second round when she started
working the body of her taller opponent. She scored her first knockout with a three-punch combination to the body midway through Round 2. The
two exchanged powerful shots in the third, before the knockout came out of nowhere and ended the fight.
A disappointed Wolf knew she had been in a war. “I bet she has never been hit as hard as she was tonight,” said
Wolfe. “I needed to settle down, I was too anxious and got caught, but I know I can beat her.”
After the fight, Mahfood issued an open challenge to
Laila Ali. “I have three titles she is welcome to come after,” the former prison guard
said. “What I did tonight is only the beginning. If she’ll fight me, I will whip her butt all over the place.”

Wendy Sprowl of Hull, Ma defeated Susan Nance of Oklahoma City Saturday, November 25th at the
Roseland Ballroom in Taunton, Ma. After 4 great rounds of skilled boxing the judges scored the bout
40-36, 40-36 and 40-37. Sprowl weighed in at 111lbs., and Nance at
114 bs. Nance had a height and arm reach advantage... but that advantage in no way shape or form overpowered
Sprowl. All four rounds were action- packed with the sold out crowd loving every minute of it. The bout
presented by Cappiello and Pendarvis Promotions was an excellent representation for women's boxing...For
noviced pros these women could fight! It was obvious that both have spent many hours of dedication in their
training. Sprowl's deadly right scored often while Nance's constant jab and left hook kept Sprowl on her toes.
Plans are currently underway for a rematch as these two pros want to GET IT ON AGAIN!!! Sprowl currently at
4-0 looks forward to the rematch, possibly for a USBF Title in approximately 8 weeks. Sprowl said it was
her toughest fight yet. She'll take a couple of days off and will hit the gym again and train seriously as
the next bout will be for 6-8 rounds. Reporter: Debbie Burns
November 25, 2000-Monterey Hyatt, Monterey, California
27 year-old Anna Carrizales from Oceanside, CA. won a split
Decision (39-37,37-39,39-37) over 37 yr. old southpaw Carol Wirth
(141Lbs.) of Oakland, CA. Both fighters were making their pro
debut. The fight was punctuated by feinting and missing as both fighters
looked to draw the other in though. Anna did manage to land with a couple of overhand rights in the
second round. In the third round, Anna became the aggressor
and began to move forward attempted to land some combinations while Carol seemed to find the range for
her right jab. In the last and final round, Anna continued to be
aggressive, and throughout the round there were some good exchanged between
both fighters. My scoring of the fight: 39-37 in favor of Carrizales.

Elena "Babydoll" Reid won an unanimous
four- round decision. Elena fought Nina Gonzalez of California. Elena's record is now 5-1 with 2 KO's. Nina's record moves to 2-3-1.
Fight report: ROUND 1 -The opening bell Elena and Nina met at the center of the ring and exchanged combinations with Elena landing the harder punches. In the middle of the first round Elena and Nina bumped heads which opened a cut on the right eyelid of Elena. Elena was unaware of the cut on her eyelid, she said it felt like an eyelash was stuck in her eye. The cut did not phase Elena at all.
ROUND 2 - Elena came out with a fury of punches that rocked back Nina. Nina tried to come back with combinations, but Elena over powered Nina with more power punches.
ROUND 3 - It was more of the same action with Nina trying to tie Elena up by holding.
ROUND 4 - Elena kept pouring on the pressure and Nina kept trying to come forward, but Elena was too strong for her and kept moving her back with power punches.

2000 Antwerp, Belgium Daniella Somers defeated Brenda
Drexel-Bell in a 10-rounder (Nov. 19)! ROUND 1
-Drexel opens the fight with a fierce attack, using swings mostly. She
manages to corner Somers and to keep her well under pressure. Daniëlla fights rather passively. Round for Brenda.
ROUND 2 -
Brenda takes the initiative again, which leads to a fierce exchange.
She takes the inside of the ring and keeps moving forward, bobbing and
weaving all the time. Most of her swing miss their target, though. Somers tries to take the iniative towards the end. Pretty even round.
ROUND 3-The same wild start from Brenda, who attacks constantly, but she does not have that much control and her punches lack precision. But then she hits
Daniëlla with 3 swings. She still a slight advantage after this round on my
card. ROUND 4-A slow start this time. Then there are several exchanges, but most punches land on the gloves of the fighters. Another even round.
ROUND 5-In the first part, Daniëlla clearly shows that she is technically the more
accomplished fighter. Brenda seems to tire, but keeps attacking. Daniëlla
counters with jabs. She wins this round. ROUND 6 - After a tentative start, there is a furious attack from Brenda, but Daniëlla
counters effectively. Both boxers are clearly getting tired, there is a lot
of infighting in the second half of the round. The round is too close to call.
ROUND 7 -Mostly infighting again. But Daniëlla lands a few good jabs and uppercuts
and is in control of the fight now. This round is definitely for her. ROUND 8 The fighters are very tired now and only manage to fight at close range. Daniëlla, having a better technique, lands more blows while avoiding
Brenda's swings. She also gets this round on my card. The verdict of the judges: unanimous decision for Daniëlla Somers (76-79,
75-78 and 77-78). (by Peter Geudens)
November 19, 2000 Seoul,
Kim Messer retained her IFBA Jr. Flyweight
title when she defeated Michelle Sutcliffe in a close 10-round
championship. In front of an estimated crowd of 3500 Korean fans, IFBA Jr. Flyweight Champion Kim Messer of Kirkland Washington retained her title against a gritty and tough Michelle Sutcliffe of Leeds, England.
The three judges scored the fight 97-96, 97-95 and 96-96 for Messer giving the champion a majority decision.
Through the first seven rounds Sutcliffe held the lead on two judges cards with the third calling the match a draw. In the eighth round Messer scored big taking the round 10-9 on all three score cards and
barely pulled out a victory in the final two rounds of action. An appreciative Korean audience mobbed Sutcliffe after the fight asking for her autograph and assuring the
aggressive Brit that they enjoyed the show. Supporting Michelle in the audience was 2nd under secretary to the British Embassy Roz Sparrow and Her Britannic Majesty's Ambassador himself Charles
Humfrey. Messer was trapped in her dressing room for 45 minutes by a
horde of reporters and fans wanting her thoughts on the bout and congratulating
her on a hard fought victory. Messer showed the heart of a champion throughout the bout, seizing the momentum from Sutcliffe in the later rounds and trilling the crowd with combinations and stiff uppercuts.

of Nelson. A part of Love's corn row hairpiece was knocked flying by the knock out punch which brought a howl from the crowd.
Nelson said that she is hoping for tougher opponents as she keeps a busy schedule and runs up her win record.
