October 31, 2000 England, Televised on Eurosport 
On the undercard of an international card that took place in England, Cathy Brown from England defeated Viktoria Varga from Hungary by TKO in the third round.  It was the first female bout that has been televised in Eurosport, one of the most popular channels in Europe.  According to WBAN's inside reporter the fight was not a good one.  He said that both fighters showed their past in kickboxing, and that at times, Vargas turned her back from  her opponent.  He reported that Vargas was knocked down in the first and second round, and that the ref stopped the fight in the third round.  He said that the stoppage may have been too soon and that the television commentator also voiced his opinion on the early stoppage. Another boxing fan said, " I also saw the Brown - Vargas fight on Eurosport. It was as your correspondent said. A very poor advert for women's boxing.   Vargas was preening herself before and after the fight and Brown looked very amateurish. The commentator kept talking about what a nice girl she was and how stunning she looked in an evening dress.
