November 28, 2004 - Riot At the Hyatt, Monterey, California 
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.

Ragan Pudwill
(135¾ lbs) TKO'd Leatrice Ortley (138 lbs) at the end of the first round. (Time was given as 3:00 ... do they fight 3 minute rounds in ND?) Pudwill is now 4-12-0 (1 KO's), Ortley 0-2-0 (0 KO's).  Ortley had not fought for three years; Pudwill's fought Mia St. John (twice), Aga Rylik, Jaime Clampitt and Missy Fiorentino but she has never defeated anyone who has a win on her record.

Kara Ro
(132 lbs) of Windsor, Ontario, Canada won by a fourth-round TKO over Renee Richardt Douglas (132 lbs) of Fenton, Missouri.  Douglas is now 11-4-1 (4 KOs) while Ro improves to 11-0 (7 KOs). I'm told that Douglas tried to make a fight of it for a while, but Kara Ro was too strong and quick for her.

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.

This was a rematch for the two, in which McConnell won by a four-round unanimous decision the first time.  Bill Mertz, who trains McConnell said, "We had a great time and Molly boxed better than ever using a stiff jab and often using the triple jab to close on her running opponent. We Told Jackie Kallen (Molly's manager) that the next fight we would like to go six. Jackie brought her friend Ray Leonard in the dressing room and visited for over a half hour. I told him thank you for taking the time and he said: 'Being friendly to people is free'. I was never a Sugar Ray fan, but with an attitude like that; 'I Love the guy'. "

Judge Suk Kwon Kim scored the fight 96-95, for Lee, while Judge Dong Ok Lee scored it 96-95 and Judge Nam Chul Park 97-95 for Juarez. Juarez proved to be a skilled fighter as she used an effective jab and strong left hand to back the shorter Lee up most of the fight. Lee the former IFBA Flyweight Champion was effective inside, but lacked the strength to punish Juarez. Promoter Byon Joeng-IL put on a tremendous event from the Yong In University Gymnasium where a packed house cheered Lee and Juarez non-stop through out the bout. Once again the Korean Boxing Commission, under the direction of Sang Kwan Park its President, did an outstanding job of officiating.

November 12, 2004 - Chajari, Argentina
Report by Ewan Whyte

María José "Panterita" ('the Little Panther') Núñez, 113 ¼, got her professional career off to a successful start last night in Chajarí (Entre Rios, Argentina) when she stopped the more experienced Lourdes González de Ocampo, 113 ¼, in the second round. Although in fact Uruguayan, Núñez has been living in Paraguay for the last seven years. González, who was stepping in for the injured Nancy Silvia Piccini and is the wife of the ex South American champion and now trainer Luis Alberto Ocampo, was the centre of controversy in Germany earlier in her career when her hospitalisation after a fight with Regina Halmich triggered a bizarre anti-boxing diatribe in Der Spiegel. She last saw action in Bolivar (Buenos Aires, Argentina) in 2003, when she succumbed with equal rapidity to the current WIBA world champion at bantamweight, Marcela Acuña. Her record now stands at 8 wins (3 by KO) and 4 losses.  Full Report  Also, Yolis Marrugo Franco (6-5-3; 1 KO y 58, 300 Kg.) won a 10-round unanimous decision and became the new WIBA Super Featherweight Title when she defeated Patricia Alejandra Quirico (6-3-0; 5 KO's y 57, 700 Kg.).

Her trainer /manager said Galina was the 'winner' and 'Champion'.   Galinas corner did not know if there would be a rematch."  Jamie also got an opportunity to 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.   Jamie added, "Esther also commented on how she loved WBAN!
