December 10, 2004 - Nezahualcoyotl, Mexico
Topping the bill in front of a packed house in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl
(Mexico), Ana María Torres moved a step closer to the world
bantamweight title last night when Golden Gloves champion Yadira Rosales
of Mexico City failed to answer the bell for the sixth round. With an
animated crowd in the Salón Marbet Plus in Ciudad Nezahualcoyotl (Méjico)
urging her on, local girl Torres got on top of Rosales at the start and
never let up, using her skill and greater experience to wicked effect.
Torres has excellent technique and hits hard. As was the case last March
when she stopped Lakeysha Williams in the fourth, it was her
opponent’s face that got the worst of it. By the time she retired between
the fifth and six rounds, Rosales’s mouth was a mess and had begun to
December 10, 2004 - Masantucket, Connecticut
Report by Ken Castro: For nearly a year, four-time junior welterweight
world title challenger Eliza Olson lobbied for a rematch with former belt
holder Jamie Clampitt. Rough edges remained from their last matchup, a
Clampitt razor-thin victory back in October of 2003. It came as no surprise
then that Olson (San Francisco, CA) jumped at the chance to return east, to
Foxwoods Casino and take another shot at Clampitt, this time for the vacant
IWBF World Junior welterweight crown.
Friday's bout was hastened by the somewhat quick departure of scheduled
Clampitt opponent, Jane Couch, who fell victim to a case of impetigo. In
stepped Olson. And true to form, the smoldering aversion that the two
fighters have toward each other came to the forefront in their scheduled ten
Unfortunately, when the dust settled, the judge's scorecards left both
corners, and a particularly large, vocal, group of ticket holders, wanting
more. "It makes my heart hurt," offered Olson (8-5-2) after the 96-94,
94-96, 95-95 draw. "I wanted the belt for Christmas. Clampitt (15-3, 5
KO's), who entered the post-fight meeting with reporters, clutching a bag of
ice to her broken right hand, longed for the belt as well. "It was a tough
fight, we have different styles and that made for an awkward fight," said
Clampitt after the disappointing outcome. "I felt like I won the fight."

- Gund Arena, in Cleveland, Ohio
Vonda Ward, 185, of Ohio, stopped Marsha Valley of Los
Angeles, CA, with knocking Valley down twice on to the canvas, and stopping
her 1:47 seconds in the fourth round by TKO. Ward and Valley were fighting
a scheduled 10-round non-title fight in the cruiserweight division.
According to news sources, Ward effectively used her jab, and dominated
Valley from the opening belt. In the fourth round, Ward landed a lead
left-overhand right combination to drop Valley for the first time. Valley
beat the count and continued to fight, but Ward quickly got her back on the
ropes with a barrage of combinations. When Valley dropped down to her knee,
the referee saw fit to stop the match.
December 10, 2004 - Australia
In October, Australian Sharon “Wild Thing” Anyos captured the WBF
featherweight strap with an entertaining, clear-cut victory over tough Texan
Linda Tenberg. Tonight, again fighting in front of her home crowd at
the Southport Sharks Club, Queensland, she contested in a much more
technical, close battle with Trinidad-born Canadian Lisa “Bad News” Brown.
While the 34-year-old Anyos constantly charged forward, the southpaw Brown
looked to effectively counterpunch with swift straight left hands.
Anyos established a decent pace in the opening stanza, constantly pressing
the attack and despite landing few punchers, with Brown content to just
throw the occasional counter, won the round on work-rate alone.
A scrappy sort of round ensued in the second, with again few scoring
punchers, although Brown was able to get home with a couple rights hooks
late to clinch the round.
The Australian was the busier fighter in the third, but the 5’2 ½” Brown was
clearly the more effective, making Anyos pay with precise left hands each
time she either leaned in, or missed with the jab.
Anyos made a slight adjustment in the fourth, trapping the Canadian on the
ropes and firing to her well-cut midsection on a few occasions. It was
enough to snare the round, but Brown came back in the fifth, twisting and
rolling out of the incoming traffic, and scoring with the left hand.
Rounds six and seven were close, Anyos again throwing more leather, but
Brown a lot more prudent with her shots. Hard scoring rounds, maybe leaning
towards the defending champion due to sheer aggression.
There was little that landed of note in the eighth, although Brown did
counter brilliantly in one exchange with her back to the ropes, which
probably shaded it in her direction.
In the final two stanzas, Anyos continued to walk forward, but Brown,
picking her spots, seemed to offset her opponent’s offence, using her ring
smarts to walk her into her crisp left counters.
A close, well-contested, and high-octane encounter. I preferred the
challenger’s effective counters over Anyos’ work rate, and had Brown winning
97-94, although there was little separating these two gutsy combatants in at
least four of the rounds.
As it turned out, the judges awarded Anyos a majority decision. Scores 96-96
and 96-95, reflected the closeness of the bout, and I suppose were
reasonably acceptable, although Wally Lewis’ card of 100-91 was ridiculous.
How he didn’t have Brown winning any rounds is baffling. Fights like this
will continue to enhance the reputation of women’s boxing. But judging like
Lewis’ just detracts the fight game in general.
Anyos is now 8-3 (1). Brown suffered her first loss and is 9-1-2 (3).

won her pro debut when she defeated
California's Heather Percival, 119, now 4-1-0 (0KO),
with a unanimous decision, in a
four round bout. Both Garside and Percival formerly come from the
amateurs. Margaret Sidoroff wrote the following, "Jeannine's next
bout is scheduled for next weekend in New York against Hagar Shmoulefeld of
Israel. Hagar is a veteran of the professional ring and has fought 10 round
title bouts and will be conditioned to fight many rounds. This should prove
to be a great test for Garside. " Photographer, Mike Blair, who
was ringside at the event, told WBAN, "The fight was one of the best of the
night. Garside was quicker, stronger and simply too tough for Percival.
Percival fought pretty well, but she just could not find a way to slow
Garside." Final judges scores were 40-36 on all cards.

Sumya “The Island Girl” Anani, 140, of Kansas City, successfully defended her WIBA
140 lb., Junior welterweight title, when she won by a 10-round unanimous
decision over Stephanie Jaramillo, 140, of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jaramillo,
with a heart of a lion, took the fight against Anani, after Anani’s original
opponent, Daryls Pardo of Colombia fell through when she was having problems
getting into the United States. Anani has only managed to get two fights in the last two years----not
because she does not want to fight, but because she can’t get a fight. Most
of the more well known top contenders in the sport, want big purses and
television to step in the ring with Anani.
WBAN is very impressed with Jaramillo for stepping up to the plate, and
fighting a top female boxer as Anani, for a world title belt. Too
often, this sport is seeing mediocre “World title” fights that take place,
and by all rights should not even be taking place.
Anani was the aggressor throughout the bout, with delivering a bloodied nose
to Jaramillo in the fourth, and a knockdown near the end of the ninth round.
In the tenth, Jaramillo had a point deducted for holding. Final scoring by
judges was 100-88, 100-88, 99-89. Anani improves her record to 24-1-1
(10KO), and Jaramillo is now 4-2-1 (2KO). On the undercard, Sharon Gaines,
121, of Kansas City, won a four-round unanimous
decision over pro debuter Camille Casson, 120, of Covington, Kentucky.
Gaines is now 5-2-0 (0KO), and Casson is 0-1-0 (0KO).
