December 12, 2006 -Salle Millesium, Epernay, France
Eurosport, which has been known to be very reluctant to show women's boxing, had a pleasant surprise for the viewers, on last night's transmission from Epernay France. They televised the super featherweight bout between Myriam Chomaz,  France vs. Leticia  Candal, of Spain. The fight, scheduled for six rounds, turned out to be both entertaining and dramatic. Chomaz went forward from the first bell, but tended at times to be over eager in her attacks, which gave Candal the opportunity to score well on counter boxing. Myriam Chomaz suffered a bad cut over her left eye in the second round, but the referee allowed her to continue the fight. The three first rounds were fairly even, maybe with a slight advantage to Candal, but Chomaz's persistent aggression paid of in the 4th round when she caught Candal with a beautiful right hand, that sent her on the canvas with 56
seconds left of the round.   Candal beat the count, only to receive a standing eight count shortly after, but she made it to the end of the round. When the fighters came out for the 5th round, the referee asked the ring doctor to look at a bad swelling that almost closed Candal's left eye. It was decided that it would be unsafe to continue the fight, so Chomaz was declared the winner by TKO. Logged in Master Search

December 9, 2006 - Trinidad and Tobago
Boxing world record history was made in Trinidad and Tobago, when at the Jean Pierre Complex, Port of Spain, in Trinidad West Indies, Gizelle Salandy of Trinidad won five (Junior Middleweight) world title belts, that included the WBA, WBC, NABC, WBE, and IWBF.  Promoter Boxu Potts has already applied for recognition for this fight to be inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records.  Salandy, 149 ¼, defeated her opponent, Mariem Brakache, 151,  with a 10-round unanimous decision.   Potts said in a press release, “From the onset, both fighters went at each other through the bout like two pit bulls. Salandy used a lot of lateral movements while displaying good hand speed, but Brakache soon adapted to her style, by cutting off the ring and drawing Salandy back into a slugfest, which suited Brakache’s style of fighting. 
In the preflight press conference, Salandy had stated to have a short night, with Brakache, i.e., the judges and referees would not have any work to do. Salandy also said that the only thing the referee would have to do is count Brakach out from one to ten, but Brakache won a lot of fans with her relentless punching style, while she was cutting off the ring.  Final judges scores for the bout: Judge George Sntaude scored 98-92; Judge McKenzie Granger, 98-92; and Judge Trevor Arno, scored 96-94.  At the end of the fight, both fighters congratulated each other and Salandy promised Brakache a rematch. Potts stated that he was satisfied with the performance of both fighters. He said, “It is fights like this where it generates public interest, and also gives credence to the world of women boxing.”
