January 27, 2007 in Gothenburg, Sweden
Asa Sandell
, 162½, of Sweden, won by a third round TKO over Tiffany Carter, 163½.  The fight was scheduled for six rounds. According to a report on Aftonbladet, it was not an entertaining fight. Carter had nothing to put up against a well trained and fit Åsa Sandell, and the Carter corner threw in the towel after 3 rounds.  The  pro card was the first in Sweden for 37 years. But if the restrictions, such as a maximum of 4 rounds, are not eased the experts does not give the return of pro boxing in Sweden much chance of surviving.  Team Carter told WBAN, "Tiffany was TKO'd in the third round.  Tiffany said that she makes no excuses and stated that Asa pitched a shut out due to the one-two jab, and that the long lay off she had, no legs and no stamina." "I give high regards to Asa and her trainer Lennox for coming in ready and well prepared for this fight and to Asa for masterfully working the jab she has my respect", added Team Carter.

January 12, 2007 - at the Palace, in Auburn Hills, Michigan
Mary Jo Sanders, 160 lbs., TKO'd Gina Nicholas, 160½, in the second round.  Nicholas
has not fought in five years and then takes on a title fight with Sanders. In this highly criticized matchup, of making a title bout with an inactive boxer of five years, In the Detroit News they reported that as the bell rang for round three, Nicholas came to the center of the ring and told referee Frank Garza that she could not continue. Nicholas appeared to have injured her left elbow, but it was evident that she was beaten.  Nicholas said, "I pulled or tore a muscle in my elbow because I just heard it pop when I threw a hook. I couldn't keep my arm up and that was exposing my left side and she kept hitting me with the right."
It does not seem unreasonable that a 43 year old, inactive boxer, who has fought 11 rounds since 2000 as a pro, may incur an injury fairly easily when they go from not boxing as a pro, to taking on a 10-round title bout.

January 9, 2007 -Bergamo, Italy
There was a European (EBU) flyweight Title fight between Simona Galassi, 111½, and Nadia Hockmi, 111¾. The fight was the main event of the show, which was televised on Eurosport. What was first called a win for Galassi, has now been called a draw, and the EBU European flyweight title is still vacant.  The final judges scores were 97-92, 95-95, 93-96.  Unfortunately, the fight was not what you would expect from a main event, and/or a title bout. Hockmi started the fight in her usual aggressive style, but Galassi showed some good counter punching in the first couple of rounds. As the fight progressed it became more and more messy with both fighters spending much of the time holding and spoiling. Hockmi had a point deducted for holding in the seventh round, which seemed unfair considering Galassi was holding consistently without getting a warning. The last 3-4 rounds of the bout indicated, that it might have been too early to let Galassi fight 10 rounds in her third pro fight. She looked tired from the seventh round onwards, while Hockmi's experience of going 10 rounds on three previous occasions within the last year showed. Despite the somewhat disappointing quality of this particular fight, Eurosport is to be commended for including women's boxing on their shows. We have already seen some good women's bouts on Eurosport within the last six months, and hope to see a lot more of the many talented women on future shows.

January 6, 2007 - Seminole Hard Rock Arena, Hollywood, Florida
Super middleweight Laura "Lady Ram" Ramsey, 168, now 7-2 (3KO), of Lake Wales, Florida, KO'd Ijeoma Egbunine, 167, 1:44 seconds of the first round.  Egbunine went down twice in the first round. Laura Ramsey has proven thus far in the sport that she is a  fearless boxer---willing to step inside the ring and take a fight-where the outcome is not predictable.   In Ramsey's short boxing career, she has already fought in Bermuda, fighting Bermuda's Teresa Perozzi, defeating Perozzi by a decision; she has fought in Georgetown, Guyana fighting Guyana's Pauline London, and TKO'ing London in the second round;  she took a 10-round title bout with a 72 hours notice to fight Shelley Burton in Edmonton, Canada, going 10 rounds losing by a unanimous decision, but making it a very competitive match against Burton; She fought Erin Toughill (From California), in Hollywood, California, losing a unanimous decision, but rematched Toughill and stopped Toughill by TKO in the first round.
