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!”

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 by Mike Blair
