controversy. In the eighth round, Christiansen was knocked down to the

the fight was very exciting and made the men’s boxing bouts look dull in
comparison. After the scores were read out for the Christiansen – Velez
fight, Velez was in disbelief, and in one report said that Velez “could
not believe her ears.” Apparently Velez was not happy about the
decision and left the ring, without congratulating Christiansen. The
two judges that scored the fight for Christiansen (97-94,
96-95) were both from
coincidentally BOTH had the last name of “Christiansen”. (Hopefully no
relation). The sole judge from Finland, had Velez ahead 97-93. Shortly

that she thought that Velez had a slight advantage. Christiansen also
