 Report by LongJab: For those of you ‘local yokels’ who were disappointed when USA Tuesday Night Fights had discontinued, take heart. A series of Tuesday Night Fight cards just began at Martin’s West this evening before a large enthusiastic crowd within the main ballroom. A six-fight card featured some up and coming local talent as well as some from the region, plus there was a special attraction that really liven up the crowd when two lovely ladies ‘rumbled’ in what seemed to be a nonstop six round bout where the two pugilests went at each other like two Energizer® bunnies who kept going and going. ‘Vicious’ Vaia Zaganas, (104.25) coming all the way from Las Vegas, Nevada and Dee Hamaguchi, (106.25) from New York, the ‘Big Apple’, provided a fast-paced example that the rest of the card participants seemed to follow. In the fourth bout of the evening, Zaganas and Hamaguchi battled for six rounds in what seemed to be a rather heated exchange at times with Zaganas, the defending IFBA Straw weight Champion, winning the decision unanimously by the scores of 59-56, and 59-55 in two judges’ views. Both ladies came to fight and fight they did. They each won a great deal of respect from the audience. Hamaguchi showed great heart in a losing effort. Zaganas will be fighting here in future events. With the win, Zaganas advances her record to13-2-0 with 6 wins coming by way of knockout. Hamaguchi, who has fought some pretty tough competition in her first eight fights, drops to 1-5-2.
