October 18, 2002 - Orleans Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada
Melinda Cooper
, a boxer with an extensive amateur background, becoming a pro boxer when she was 17 years old,  wasted little time when she quickly disposed of her overmatched opponent, 22 year old Brittney Conan, 117 lbs., when Cooper KO'd Conan 14 seconds into the first round. Cooper is now 5-0-0 (3KO). Conan has fallen to 0-2-0.  Conan trains out of Colorado and according to information received she has been boxing for about one year.  One side note from WBAN is, if this boxer is paying a manager to put her in two fights that she has now had where she has been overmatched----the best thing this fighter could do is get rid of him or her. This is NOT managing a boxer in their best interests.
