November 30, 2001 - Queensland, Australia
In front of a crowd of over 800 boxing fans, WIBA and WBL featherweight champion Sharon Anyos defeated 30-year-old Holly Ferneley of Newton.  Ferneley suffered a cut eye from a clash of heads.  Ferneley was surprised at the ferocity of the first two rounds when she survived a relentless attack from Anyos.  According to news sources,  Ferneley was determined to stay on her feet for the six "spirited" rounds. Ferneley was quoted as saying that she was fighting for "her" sport, and that "it was fun."   Anyos said that Ferneley was a good fighter and that the fight was "serious."  Apparently Anyos won every round of the fight, but was still feeling the affects of "ring rust."
