JULY 2006

July 30, 2006 in Nairobi, Kenya
Zarika Njeri (Fatuma)
won by TKO2 over Monalisa Sibanda. A release from JabJab Promotions wrote the following:
30th July, Kenya’s new boxing sensation Fatuma Zarika Njeri stopped Zimbabwe’s Monalisa Sibanda in a non-title fight at Nairobi’s Nyayo Stadium. Many boxing fans had expected Zarika to loose the bout as Monalisa had impressed earlier in the year when she stretched Women’s WBF Middleweight Champion Conjestina Achieng only to loose on points.  There were concerns that since Monalisa had fought at Middleweight against Conjestina, Zarika had no chance against her even though the Zimbabwean had shed almost 10 kgs to make the super featherweight category.  Zarika who was largely unknown before the game impressed with her
piston style blows and surprised the full house when she floored Sibanda in the first round. Sibanda recovered to finish the round. However a minute into the second round after a fifty-fifty exchange between the ladies, Zarika cornered her opponent at the white corner with a barrage of hard punches. Sibanda went down on her knees and referee, Vedo Okumu stopped the fight.  “I am not disheartened by the loss” said Sibanda, “boxing is a sport and I lose honourably, it was her day and I will live to win another day”. Sibanda however ruled out the possibility of her ever fighting either Zarika or Conjestina in the future. “I am a natural welterweight, I put on weight to fight Conje and shed weight to meet Zarika – that is that last time I move from my natural weight. I will only fight at welter” she said.  On whether she lost because she had shed too much, Sibanda said “that is not true and anyone who is saying that is trying to be too sympathetic. I had two months to prepare and I was fit and strong at that game. Zarika had a game plan worked out and it succeeded. That’s all.  The fight was promoted by newly formed Jabjab Promotions and was a
success with the venue filling with up to 2,000 people who came to see for the first time the largely unknown Fatuma Zarika. The main crown puller however was Monalisa Sibanda who enjoys a great following in Kenya.   Logged in Master Search

second women's bout saw Karolina Lukasik take her record to 4-0-0, by defeating a brave, but overmatched, Olga Bojare of Lithuania in a four-round Super Welterweight bout. Lukasik was hitting Bojare almost at will at the end of the 3rd round, and a stoppage would have been in order. But the gutsy Lituanian came out for the 4th round and finished the bout standing.

July 22, 2006 – Northern Lights Casino, Anacortes, Washington
Super featherweight Merced Nunez TKO’d Joann Chagolla in the first round in a scheduled four-round bout. Mike Blair reported that  Nunez answered the opening bell with hands up and immediately threw her jab. Granted, Joann Chagolla, making her pro debut offered little resistance, but still Nunez had to be fundamentally sound. Nunez threw straight jabs and an effective right cross. When she had Chagolla hurt early, Nunez was patient. She did not rush in and throw wildly, she jabbed to move Chagolla to the ropes then unleashed her right.  *Logged in Master Search

July 15, 2006 - Panama
The presence in the front row of Panamanian boxing legend Roberto ‘Manos de Piedra’ Duran was not enough to lift Shantal Martínez, who hails from the western province of Chiriquí, to victory in Antón on Saturday evening when she clashed with Carolina Odalis Álvarez of Venezuela in what Boxeo Panama described as ‘one of the most eagerly awaited contests of the evening’ – the judges scoring the fight: Marcos Torres 29-28, Ignacio Robles 29-28 and Roberto Vernaza 30-27 unanimously in favour of the visitor. Álvarez, whose sobriquets ‘Fiera China’ and ‘La Fiera’ attest to her ferocity, has been fighting since December in Germany, where so far she has stopped two opponents, Lucie Hornakova of Slovakia and Albena Altseva of Bulgaria, as well as holding former kickboxer Bettina Volker to a draw. With this win – both women weighed in at 110 pounds - she improves to 5-0-1 (2 KOs). (By Ewan Whyte)

Salinas said, "She came out wild; she came out swinging, I'm a boxer. I have technique. I have style. I fought her fight and I'm ashamed of it. “ Logged in Master Search

July 15, 2006 - Legends Casino, in Yakima, Washington
Photos and story by Mike Blair/gallery will be posted soon

There were two women's bouts on the card. The card was held outdoors. Tonia Cravens, 114½,  tried to be the aggressor as she faced veteran Sharon Gaines, 114¾,  in a six round bantamweight fight. However, while Cravens threw more punches, many were off target. On the other side, Gaines waited to find openings and when they appeared, she took advantage of them, often firing a jab through Cravens' arms touching her chin or her body. Cravens was more effective when she was able to keep Gaines in the middle of the ring, from there Cravens could use her height and reach advantage. Gaines however kept throwing jabs, often lunging to do so, but that caused Cravens to step back, and when the action moved to the ropes or a corner, Gaines stepped inside and was able to connect and score. Though one judge scored the fight even, the difference was Gaines' accuracy. She may not have thrown as many punches as Cravens, but she certainly landed more. The two other judges scored the fight 59-55 for Gaines, thus she scored a majority decision win.  In another match, Kelsey Jeffries and Lina Ramirez were fighting to claim the vacant NABF Super Bantamweight belt. When Ramirez weighed in over the limit, she nullified her opportunity to wear the belt even with a victory. Jeffries fought in what has, of late, become her tactical style. There was a time when she would have stood in the center of the ring and banged away at Ramirez, and received as many punches as she delivered, in the end winning a war of attrition. There were moments Saturday night when it appeared she was ready to do that again.  Ramirez is a tough woman who swings wildly, but hard. She can take a punch, and though Jeffries caught her flush more than a few times, Ramirez would not go down. After the fight Jeffries said, "I really wanted to cut loose and go after her, but I knew to win I had to out box her." And out box her she did, moving to create angles and pivoting to throw a right that comes at opponents in the form of a hook, an uppercut, or occasionally overhand. It is hard to say that Ramirez mounted a serious challenge, though she did win a few rounds. Ramirez looked to be most effective when, at the midpoint of the fight, she caught Jeffries on the chin after the bell. While it was not a devastating shot, Ramirez sent a message that she hoped would shatter the discipline of the focused Jeffries. It almost worked, as the two women poked at each other after the bell in the next round as well. After that, Jeffries returned to boxing and Ramirez to throwing wide and wild. After ten rounds, Jeffries scored the unanimous decision victory, 98-92 on two cards, 97-93 on the third, to claim the NABF Super Bantamweight belt.  Logged in Master Search

July 14, 2006 - Blue Box, Potsdam, Germany, promoted by Elite Box (translated info from German media)
In the first women's bout of the evening, Jasmin Oflas, 22,
159½,   repeatedly found the mark with her straight right, but Malina Perplies, 25, 160 lbs., proved to have a good chin, managing even a few dangerous counters of her own despite the fast tempo. The two fought to a four-round draw. Judges scores were 40-38, 38-38, and 37-39.  In the last bout of the evening,  Junior welterweight Ramona Kuehne, 138¾, won a four-round unanimous decision over Miroslava Durinova, 21,  143. Kühne seemed to have the edge in the early stages, leading well with her left, but her 21-year-old opponent was countering skilfully with her own left until the German girl, who is trained by Stephan Böstfleisch, connected with a hard right to the head. In the second round, the Slovakian still looked dangerous with her jab and left-right combinations, but the 26-year-old Kühne proved to have the better technique and greater accuracy in both hands. The third round was dominated by the German junior welterweight, who landed a dazzling right uppercut. Miroslava Durinova tried hard to reverse the outcome in the final round, but Ramona Kühne countered effectively with straight rights to the chin and hooks to the body, comfortably preserving her lead.  Logged in Master Search
