September 30, 2004 - Grand Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California (report by David Avila-Maxboxing.com)
Rhonda Luna pounded out a win against Cindy Christian at the Grand Olympic Auditorium on Thursday. Before more than 1,000, Luna attacked with precision like a buzz saw as she dominated Christian all four rounds.  "I was pleased the way I fought," said Luna (7-0), "I wasn't wild and I was much more aggressive."  Christian (0-2-1) moved laterally side to side but couldn't shake Luna's pitbull aggressiveness especially in the corners.  From the first round to the fourth, Luna controlled the fight with four-punch combinations and a bob and weave defense. Christian managed to stay on her feet with solid footwork and an occasional right hand counter. "I was surprised she lasted so long," said Luna. "She was a game fighter." At times Christian was able to land pot shots at Luna who moved forward all four rounds. But for every two punches the Oklahoma fighter tossed she received four or five for her effort.  Luna was most effective with a left hook that snapped Christians head back several times. But she fought on.  Victor Valenzuela, Luna's trainer, wants Luna to continue working on things in the gym before he lets her fight for a title. "She needs to work on some fundamentals," said Valenzuela, who formerly trained Zack Padilla a former junior welterweight champion. "We're working on her power. It's getting better little by little."  All four judges scored the fight 40-36 for Luna. 
Jacob Luna, Rhonda's brother and manager, said he plans for his sister to fight in December.

Dr. Bettina Csabi fought local hero Viktoria Milo for vacant WIBF-GBU super flyweight title. The bout was qualitative and balanced as well. Bettina's jabs were dominating the match, but the Milo was better in the near and her body shots were very dangerous. At the beginning of the match Csabi was the
dominant however in the middle of the fight Milo succeeded in taking charge. When the fight ended, both boxers believed to be the winner. On the cards Csabi was the victorious (97:94, 97:93 and 95:95) majority decision, however in my opinion at ringside 96:94 of Csabi was the most objective. With her victory Csabi has proved that she is in the elite, and Regina Halmich's official challenger. Report and Photos by JollyDee

Kelsey Jeffries, 121 1/2,  of Gilroy, California won by a 10-round majority decision over Jerri Sitzes, 122,  in a 10-round super-bantamweight IBA title bout. Final judges scores were 96-94, 97-93 for Jeffries, and 95-95 even. Jesus Sanchez, who covered the fight for WBAN said, "The fight was advertised as being for the vacant IBA Super Bantamweight World title. This was definitely the fight of the night! Both fighters took a lot of punishment but their great conditioning was a factor in this fight going 10 rounds. I was very impressed with both fighters but let me tell you...Jerri is the best 5-5 fighter I have ever seen! I believe Kelsey did enough to win a decision but a rematch would be great to see!"

(Report by Mara Castillon)
 Despite Julie Rubalcalva engaging in only her third professional fight, her opponent Gina Abel was out-classed in a bout scheduled for four rounds at the Irvine Marriott on Thursday.  "When I first saw her throw punches I said to myself what is this?" said Rubalcalva of her Texan opponent in a fight card promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.  The Orange County fighter quickly realized it was an easy opponent. Too easy, and took her time letting Abel (0-6) throw jabs while Rubalcalva moved her head easily avoiding punches At the sound of the 10 second bell, Rubalcalva let loose with a barrage of punches that snapped Abel's head back in a grotesque manner. Referee David Denkin saw enough and called the fight at 2:58 of the first round. "I just want to fight," said Rubalcalva who trains out of Westminster. "I'll fight anybody."  The miniature junior bantamweight was hoping to face Mexico's Mariana Juarez but promoters were unable to match their purse requests. 
"I'd really like to fight Mariana," said Rubalcalva (3-0) who   despite only three fights had a decent amateur career. Richard Garcia, who trains Rubalcalva, said he's confident she can fight any of the top junior bantamweights in the world including Melinda Cooper, Elena Reid or Carina Moreno. 
"She'll have no problem," Garcia said.

September 11, 2004 - Karlsuhe, Germany
(report by David Avila) After a fierce 10 rounds against Germany’s WIBF flyweight champion, Elena “Baby Doll” Reid returned home without the belt but a smile on her face.  “They were so wonderful to me,” said Reid of her experience in Germany.  In her first world title bout Reid engaged female prizefighting’s most experienced world champion Regina Halmich at DM Arena in Karlsruhe, Germany before more than 4,000 rabid fans. “It was very exciting,” said Reid (14-1-5), who had never been to Europe before spending several days promoting the fight in Germany. “The people were so nice to me everywhere I went.”  Inside the ring, the always-smiling Reid faced Halmich (45-1-1), a veteran fighter of numerous clashes in defense of the several world titles she has picked up in her long career. It’s a career that has spanned more than 10 years as a professional including 40 title fights. In that time she had only suffered one loss and no draws. That was until yesterday.  The left-handed Reid who has changed back to a more marauding aggressive style after experimenting with a classic boxing mode, was set to see who would blink first. Both Reid and Halmich have the same juggernaut approach to boxing, never a step backward.  “I felt I was able to hit her with everything I threw,” said Reid, 22. “She was a very tough fighter.”  Chris Ben, Reid’s trainer, said the plan was to attack and use the left. Both Reid and Ben felt they were able to achieve their goal successfully. “She hit Regina every time she threw a left,” said Ben who worked her corner. “She was snapping her head back with jabs and lefts.”  Halmich, 27, reportedly suffered cuts and bumps on her face from Reid’s punishing blows, but never stopped trying.  “You have to hand it to Regina, she is one tough girl,” said Ben, adding that other fighters might have quit under the same pressure. “Elena was too strong for her.”  By the end of the first half of the fight, the crowd had swayed over to Reid. “They were cheering for Elena and calling out Baby Doll, Baby Doll,” said Ben.  When the fight ended Halmich walked over to congratulate Reid on her performance. “She told me she would give me another fight,” said Reid, who felt she won every round in the fight.   The judges scored it 98-94 Halmich, 97-93 Reid and 97-97 for a draw. It’s Reid’s fifth draw and Halmich’s first.The media called two of the judges scores “scandalous”. The television commentator interviewing Halmich told her they felt she lost convincingly.  “She was mad at the television guys cause they told her she lost the fight,” said Reid, adding that Halmich fought bravely and never stopped trying. “The people there treated me so well. I’ll never forget them. They were really wonderful people.  IN a second's women's bout, Silke Weickenmeier won a 10-round unanimous decision over
 Austria Urbaez Urena in an uneventful bout. Lastly in a four-round undercard bout, featherweight Sandra Schreiber won by a unanimous decision over Pavla Stankeova. Final judges scores were 40-35, 40-35, and 39-36. Photo Gallery Hot Comments Round by round Full Boxing Records

Molly accepted the bout and at fight time Valenciana weighed 158. This was a BIG order for McConnell who boxes as a Light Welterweight, however the BIG order was handled with ease.

September 10, 2004 at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, in Atlanta City, New Jersey
Jacqui Frazier-Lyde, 179, won a ten-rounder over Mary Ann Almager, 183, in a heavyweight title fight. According to news sources, Almager knocked Frazier-Lyde to the canvas twice, but lost the bout by 97-92, 96-92, and 95-93.  Report by Jack Crider:   The Tropicana Hotel and Casino played host to one of the most exciting Women’s Boxing Championship Bouts in many years. The Event Title “Sister Smoke Returns” was a well matched battle between two of the best female boxers in the world. From the opening bell it was evident that neither of the two women was going to give up much ground.  Round one saw both women see sawing back in forth trading heavy leather with Frazier-Lyde narrowly winning the first round of an exciting bout. The second round began with both ladies again trading heavy shots, trying to take out each other. To the crowd’s amazment, Almager landed a big right hand, catching Frazier-Lyde off balance and sending “Sister Smoke” to one knee. After looking surprised and dazed, Frazier-Lyde shook off the cob webs and survived the second round. In round three Frazier-Lyde seemed to gain her composure and clearly landed the heavier blows pounding Almager to the body and sending her against the ropes. The fourth round Frazier-Lyde started looking much like the third round with Frazier-Lyde again going to the body of Almager and making her cover up. Almager in this round did have some moments, but the heavier damage went to Lyde. The fifth round saw both Almager and Frazier-Lyde going back and forth each having their moments, but the body attack by Frazier-Lyde again seemed to win the round. Round six was exciting but with no real fanfare, again Frazier-Lyde doing more to impress than Almager. In round seven Almager came out looking to again try to take out Frazier-Lyde, however Lyde used good defence and came on later in the round again with a good body attack which slowed down Almager. Almager came out in round eight again trying to land big shots on Frazier but again “Sister Smoke” used good defense and again clearly used better boxing skills to win the round. The ninth round was a recap of the eight round with Frazier-Lyde controlling the action with body shots, good defense and holding Almager at bay and easily winning the round.  In between rounds Almager’s corner screamed encouragement to her and instructed her to let it all hang out. The result was good because the motivation saw Almager get a controversial knock down half way into the round. As a result, Almager clearly won this tenth round. Frazier-Lyde on the other hand as well as many observers ringside, thought the knock down was more a push than actually a knock down. Referee Eddie Cotton to quite a few fans dismay ruled it a knock down.
