and my sponsor Elite Home Mortgage for allowing me this opportunity and
the time to train properly for this title fight. If it weren't for my
sponsor who decided to take a chance on a 38 yr. young boxer I may have
had to hang up my gloves earlier this year. With the financial support
that was given I was able to continue my training and obtain my goal of
fighting for a title. Having started in this sport in 1995 and turning
pro in 2002 I have put a lot of time and effort into boxing. I love this
sport and what it has done for me. I would just like to thank all of the
people who came out to support this card that had three women's bouts on
it. It was a nearly sold out card and one of the best cards I have ever
been on. “Mann added, “Again I just want to thank everyone who supports
women's boxing including WBAN and you Sue Fox! And congratulations to
Carlette Ewell for her WBE Lt. Heavyweight World Title. I couldn't have
done it without her support and sparring!”

On the undercard, Junior
welterweight Molly McConnell, now 4-0-0 (1KO), Portland, Oregon,
scored a four round majority decision win over Terry Blair, 5-8-1
(3KO), Louisville, Kentucky. McConnell won the first two rounds on all
three judge's cards because she was quicker and more accurate then
Blair. In the third, Blair settled down and used her jab to catch
McConnell and keep her a bit off balance. Blair won the third on two
judge's cards. The fourth round was very close. Blair and her corner
knew she had to have a big round, but McConnell once again returned to
the quick jab and then moved out of trouble. Blair maintained stiff
pursuit, but she did not move her head well enough to keep it from being
a target for McConnell's jab. One judge would give the round to Blair,
and score the fight a draw. The other two scored the fourth for
McConnell, one having the fight 40-36, the other 39-37. Photos and story
