June 30, 2006 - Margarita Mama’s, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
was a sweet night for Natiata ‘Girliegirl’ Porter, when she won her second professional bout in as many attempts.
 What made it even sweeter for Porter was that she won it by a fourth round technical knockout, when she stopped a smaller Natoya Erwin, from Akron, Ohio. Erwin took every punch that Porter threw at her and landed a few punches of her own, which indicates she has a lot of heart and courage. With the win, Porter advances her record to 2-0; with her first win, coming by way of TKO. (photos and story submitted by Longjab).

June 10, 2006 - Isleta Casino, SE Albuquerque, New Mexico  in front of a sold-out crowd, Holly Holm, 145 ¼, of Albuquerque, NM, won a 10-round unanimous decision over last-minute opponent Angelica Martinez, 147. Holm won the vacant WBA World welterweight belt. Holm was supposed to fight Lisa Holewyne, and the promo poster reflected that match. Just a couple of days before the fight, Holewyne "skipped" out of town, due to a family emergency, and left the promoter with no opponent.  WBAN could understand a "family emergency" but to not call the promoter with some kind of update, and leave phone calls unanswered (WBAN even tried to call her) was uncalled for and unprofessional. Warrior Martinez, who had been wanting a long-awaited rematch with Holm, stepped in for Holewyne with virtually NO preparation time for this title bout. The fight was a battle between the two---and in WBAN's opinion even before Martinez took the fight, would be a much more competitive bout (Martinez vs. Holm) than with Holewyne.  Holm and Martinez did not disappoint!  The two fought for 10 hard rounds, with Holm winning by all scorecards of 98-92.  In a second women's bout on the undercard, Albuquerque’s Sarah Perches,  121, made it a short night with a TKO over Lisa Wittle, 40 seconds into the first round.  On ringside coverage -Chris Cozzone of NewMexicoBoxing.com he wrote a great story with photos!

June 10, 2006 - Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
In front of 14,000 plus boxing fans, at the Madison Square Garden, in New York City, NY, Noriko Kariya, 117, of Toronto, Canada, stopped her opponent, Kerri Hill, 118, 1:07 seconds, in the third round of a scheduled six-round bantamweight bout on the undercard. Kariya improved her record to 4-1-1 (1KO), with Hill remaining winless with a 0-4-0 record.  From the opening bell, Kariya controlled the outcome of the bout, throwing slick and much faster combinations, having a devastating affect on the inside of Hill. In the third round, Kariya was clearly dominating Hill, throwing a barrage of combinations, when Hill did not respond, the ref stopped the match.  source: K. Davis   Logged in Master Search
