January 17, 2004 -Aarhus, Denmark, Promoted by Bettina Palle - Televised on Denmark Television
Anita Christiansen, 117.9,  won a 10-round split decision over Ada Velez, 117.5, and became the new WIBA – WIBF Bantamweight World champion---But not without controversy.  In the eighth round, Christiansen was knocked down to the canvass, but got up and finish the fight.  According to WBAN’s insider, 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 Denmark and coincidentally BOTH had the last name of “Christiansen”. (Hopefully no relation).  The sole judge from Finland, had Velez ahead 97-93. Shortly after the fight, Christiansen was asked if she thought that she won the fight. Christiansen indicated that the fight was a very even fight, and that she thought that Velez had a slight advantage.  Christiansen also added that she would give Velez a rematch. Report: Was Velez Ripped off?
