November 28, 2004 - Riot At the Hyatt, Monterey,
Isaiah Guzman, a sports reporter for the Santa Cruz Sentinel
wrote the following: Carina Moreno, 23, 108 lbs.,
won a unanimous decision (80-72) to improve to 7-0 as a pro
while Yvonne Caples, 32, 107, dropped to 7-7-2.
Moreno was originally scheduled to face Julie Rubalcava
(4-0) but Rubalcava backed out the week of the fight due to
an injury she sustained to her hand in a fight the week
before. The 109-pound bout was planned to go six
rounds but was lengthened to eight when several of the men’s
fights dropped out the day before. “It was nothing,”
Moreno said of going the extra two rounds. “I didn’t really
get tired.” Aside from a lump over her left eye from a head
butt, Moreno came out of what was supposed to be the biggest
test of her young pro-career virtually unscathed. Moreno
even dazed Caples in the seventh round when she caught her
with a good combination. “I’ve got to calm down when I
see an opponent hurt because I get a little too excited,”
Moreno said. Moreno fought from the fourth round on
with a hurt right hand. She wasn’t sure how she hurt it but
said she couldn’t throw it with as much force from that
point on. “(Trainer Rick Noble) said forget about the
pain just keep throwing and I kept on throwing it,” Moreno
said. Both Moreno and Noble were ecstatic with the win over
the more experienced, former International Female Boxing
Association world champion. The final judges scores
were 80-72 on all cards.

had the better skills was unable to match the work rate of
the determined Gallegos. After the bout Bolles announced her
retirement from boxing.

On Thursday, Novermber 18,
2004, at the Marriott Hotel in Irvine, California,
on a Golden Boy Promotions card Julie Rubalcava of
Westminster, California won a six-round split
(60-54,60-54,55-59) decision over Elizabeth Cervantes,
originally from Mexico and now from Lakeside California. I'm
told this was a bantamweight fight that was mostly fought at
a distance and over-cautiously by both girls, provoking some
boos and catcalls from the crowd. The third round was
apparently the only one to contain significant action as
Rubalcava opened up and scored with frequent hard left hooks
to Cervantes's head. For most of the rest of the fight
Cervantes was content to stay as far as possible from
Rubalcava, who showboated but pursued her only in spurts,
much to the crowd's displeasure. Rubalcava remains
undefeated at 4-0 (1 KO), while Cervantes drops to 1-4.

inside, but lacked the strength to punish Juarez.

speak with Schouten, and she said, "Esther was a pleasure to speak
with. Esther spoke to everyone and signed autographs. She
acted like a true Champion in my opinion. Esther said she was very
happy to retain the belt; she acknowledged that her opponent was
extremely tough and an excellent fighter. Schouten had an elbow
injury. I asked her if she had any problems with it before the
fight? Esther straight away dismissed that idea immediately, and
made it clear that it was no excuse. Esther said that she had wished
that she had fought every round like the 10th round. Esther also
commented that by retaining the belt, that money would now be put in
by the Olympic Organization to promote Women's boxing.

that it is very honest and unbiased."
