JULY 2005

July 30, 2005 - Cobo Arena, in Detroit, Michigan

Mary Jo Sanders, 142,  remained undefeated when she fought Eliza Olson, 145, for the Interim WBC Welterweight title. Sanders won by a 10-round unanimous decision.  WBAN's Senior Editor, Brian Ackley wrote the following:  DETROIT -- Although Mary Jo Sanders didn’t earn a million bucks for her win Saturday night, her Detroit fans sure thought she fought like it.  Sanders earned the WBC Interim Welterweight belt with a unanimous decision win over tough Elisa Olson to improve to 17-0 in her career. As expected, Sanders was the more efficient tactician, although she did absorb a few of Olson’s looping hooks which earned the California-based challenger the admiration of many in the Cobo Arena crowd of 3,000. All three judges saw it 98-92, 97-93 and 96-94. Neither fighter was in any serious trouble in the fight. Olson was caught off balance and wobbled slightly in the third by a Sander’s hook, and Olson did some of her best work in the seventh, before tiring a bit in the final two rounds. Sanders’ best round might have been the 10th, making sure there were no hometown upsets on this night. “It feels like I fought my best but I’m in her hometown, if I can bring it to my hometown, the decision might change,” Olson (now 8-6-2) said after the fight. “I know I hit her, I stunned her, I cut her. But I didn’t probably throw enough punches. But I feel my performance was pretty good given the amount of time I had to train for this fight. I was told a month before, but it’s OK. She knows who I am. I know she’ll never fight me again because she’ll be scared. If she does want to fight me again, tell her to bring it. Maybe we’ll fight in Vegas or something. I’d be willing to do it again.”  The fight came off on the same night Christy Martin and Lucia Rijker were scheduled to fight for a $1 million in Las Vegas. It would have been the largest purse in women’s boxing history, but the fight was cancelled last week after Rijker tore her Achilles. It was Olson’s fifth crack a a title, but most of her fights have been on the road. She once called herself a “fighter on call”, having lost or drawn a number of close decisions in the backyards of several world champions.  Sanders stuck largely to her preflight plan with lots of movement and lots of jabs, and on occasion showed a brief willingness to mix it up, prompting chants of “Mary Jo” from her fans in the last two rounds.

WBAN Record Member's huge Photo gallery #275
Seattle's Junior Middleweight Tricia Turton, 3-0-0 (2KO), scored a TKO over Chris King of Greenwood, Colorado. King was making her pro debut, and her lack of ring experience showed. Though King was taller, she was unable to keep Turton from fighting inside. Turton also threw effective combinations, and in the end, they are what took the toll. The referee stopped the fight at 1:18 of the 2nd round when Turton had King against the ropes, landing shots to the head and body, and King was unable to stop them or even defend herself.

July 9, 2005 - Life Sportpark Herrenkrug, in Magdeburg, Germany
source: Ewan Whyte/Jon Fox    Natascha Ragosina
, now 7-0-0 (4KO), remained undefeated when she won by a 10-round unanimous decision over Valerie Mahfood, now 19-9-1 (9KO). The two were fighting for the WIBF super-middleweight (168 lb) continental title. Final judges scores were 99-91, 100-90, and 100-90. The fight was televised by DSF.  Jon Fox, of Europe wrote to WBAN, “Natascha Ragosina has just performed a virtual shutout on Valerie Mahfood. I thought that this was going to be one helluva scrap - but it wasn't. In truth, I realised shortly into the fight that it was only ever going to be a helluva scrap if Mahfood turned it into a war. But she elected not to. As a result she just looked pedestrian and ponderous. For her part, Ragosina was content to keep her opponent on the end of her cultured (but non-lethal) jab. From time to time she woke us from our slumbers with impressive combinations. But these only served to demonstrate that the Russian could have achieved a stoppage at any time she had chosen to exert herself. Unfortunately, she chose not to.”
