Junior middleweight Bonnie Mann lost to Nicole Woods
by a six-round unanimous decision. The scoring was 60-54 on all
cards.WBAN had been contacting earlier in the week before this fight,
and Mann told us that this would be her final fight in the sport.
After the fight WBAN wrote and said, “Well I did not have the
outcome that one would hope for on your final fight of your
professional career; however it was still one of the most remarkable
nights of my career. I would like to thank Team Woods and especially
Nicole Woods herself. She displayed class and professionalism well
beyond her time in boxing. It will be a pleasure to watch her and
the rest of the women in boxing continue to propel us forward with
positive recognition. I will continue to be involved with boxers. I
will now transition to the other opportunities that are available
within boxing. I look forward to remaining active in the boxing
community in whatever capacity I see fit.”
August 30, 2008 - Düsseldorf,
of Kentikian vs. Finer
Susianna Kentikian, 111¾, had to dig deep
to retain her WBA and WIBF Flyweight titles against a very
determined and top fit Hagar Shmoulefeld Finer, 110, of Israel last night
in Düsseldorf. It was obvious, that Kentikian had problems coping
with the unorthodox and aggressive boxing style of Shmoulefeld
Finer. Kentikian usually goes forward and
controls the action in her fights, but the experienced Israelite
simply didn't allow her to do that. She kept Kentikian busy in the
early rounds, and her good defence prevented champion to do much
damage with her fast combination. Kentikian had difficulties finding
the range, especially in the first half of the fight, and probably
gave 2 - 3 of the first 5 rounds away to the challenger.
The second half of the fight saw Kentikian standing her ground and
seeking infight, instead of going backwards and counter box
Shmoulefeld Finer. This eliminated the reach advantage of the taller
Shmoulefeld, and Kentikians combinations began to work. The champion
got through with some telling punches, but they hardly showed any
effect on the game Shmoulefeld. The last 3 rounds were toe to toe,
and although both fighters showed signs of fatigue, it looked as if
the larger number of telling punches from the champion, had taken
its toll on the Israely fighting machine. The judges scored the
fight 97-93, 98-92 and 99-91, all in favor of Kentikian. Credit to
both boxers for producing a fast and action packed fight, even
though the awkward, but efficient style of Hagar Shmoulefeld, did
make it look messy at times.Another women's title fight saw
Rebekka Herrmann, 110½, (10-1-0) do battle
with Anastasia Toktaulova,108¼. (12-9-0) for the vacant GBU Flyweight
title. This ended in a MD, with the scores, 97-93, 97-94 and 95-95,
for the Russian Toktaulova.

Lucia Morelli improved her record to 11-0-0 (6K0), when she
won the International German Welterweight Title against Tatjana
Dieckmann, now 1-4-0. According to a local source,
Dieckmann was simply too slow for Morelli, and was heavily marked in
the face after the first round. Morelli ended the fight 1:20 into
the 3rd round with a cracking straight left, which sent her opponent
to the floor. Dieckman failed to get off the floor within the 10
count, so Morelli can add a KO victory to her record.
Dieckman's last fight was against Norwegian prospect Cecilia Brækhus,
and resulted in a 6 round unanimous decision for Brækhus.

Carina “La Reina” Moreno, 104.4, of Watsonville, California,
won a 10-round decision over Yahaira Martinez, 106, of Puerto
Rico. Moreno's fight was made a non-title bout for the WBC due to
Martinez not making weight. In a second women’s bout, Dominga
Olivo, 120, of New York, won a close split decision over Ana
Julaton, 121.2,. 77-75 (Olivo), 77-75 (Julaton), and 79-73 (Olivo)The two fought for the super bantamweight WBC International title.
Ed Pearson of the WBC said in a press release, "We have some results
from a show last night in Lemoore, California. Moreno
was prepared to fight for the WBC World female Strawweight
title went ahead as a non-title fight because Yahaira Martinez
failed to make the weight." "Martinez weighed in 2.8 pounds
over the 105 pound limit. Another reason why we have to have the 30
and 7 day weigh in results. Some people don’t seem to think it’s a
big deal, but sometimes, like this, it comes back to hurt them when
they don’t do it. Had Carina Moreno lost the fight, the title would
have been vacated. Carina Moreno won a unanimous decision with
scores of 100-90 (x2) and 97-93", added Pearson.

Heavyweight Monica McGowan makes a convincing “reason” why WBAN has discontinued ratings for the

first 20 seconds of the first round in a scheduled four rounder.

three women boxers in her last three bouts, who barely have
"scratched the surface" in regards to experience in the sport as of

August 11, 2008 - Tokyo, Japan
In the Main Event last night at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan,
Westchester's own Ann-Marie Saccurato, 136, defeated
World Champion Emiko Fujin Raika, 134½, to become a
three-time WBC Lightweight World Champion! The scores were
98-92, 97-92, 97-93, all in favor of Saccurato. Last November,
Ann-Marie fought Raika in Toyko and received a very questionable and
head scratching loss for the WIBA title in which Emiko Fujin Raika
was also the promoter of the fight. To quiet the skeptics, Ann-Marie
came out strong in the first round and landed several powerful right
hands, breaking Raika's nose. The battle continued with Ann-Marie
boxing on the outside and Raika having a hard time finding her with
her punches. In the sixth round, Raika landed a head butt,
which cost her a point on the judges scorecards. Ann-Marie suffered
a cut from the head butt which required stitches after the fight,
but her corner was able to control the bleeding and Ann-Marie
continued to out-box Raika with her skill and incredible punching
power. Ann-Marie has now fought for, and won, the WBC
Lightweight World Championship belt three times- having the distinct
honor of beating World Champions Jelena Mrdjenovich, Jessica Rakoczy
and Emiko Fujin Raika-all in their own hometowns. Also, in
another women's bout, minimumweight Momo Koseki, 101¼,
won by a KO [48 seconds] in the second round over [Chirawadee
Sisuk]Winyu Paradorn Gym, 102, in a 10 round bout. They

August 9, 2008-
In the only female fight on the card, Benedetta Kaloki,
125.4, had to make quick adjustments to overcome debut Sarah
Achieng, 126.1. Achieng came with all guns blazing in the first
round, and managed to rock Kaloki with some good overhand rights.
Achieng who enjoyed a better hand reach obviously won the first
round, and fans thought she would cause an upset against her
opponent. However, quick fight plan adjustments by her corner so her
come on top in the remaining three rounds. Fighting from outside
well out of reach of the long armed Achieng, Kaloki got her act
together and picked of Achieng on the back foot, scoring well and
ensuring that her third professional fight was sealed. Kaloki won by
a majority decision, with final scores of 39-39, 40-39, 40-39.

August 2, 2008 - Monteria, Colombia
Montería, who were surprised at the weigh-in by the physique of
Alejandra Ramírez, Leli Luz Flórez’s opponent for this
weekend’s Cartagena vs Córdoba triple header, were able to
admire it from a different angle on fight night when the local
girl knocked her out in the first round. “Flórez just gets
better every fight,” raved Juan Fabra of El Universal.
“Her offensive game is formidable. She seems to have fists of
steel. The woman from Cartagena came with every intention of
defeating her but Leli gave her a real thumping.” In what El
Meridiano, whose reporter was denied access to the event,
described as an “embarrassing” evening, all three fighters from
Cartagena succumbed altogether too easily to their Cordoban
opponents, but the defeat of Ramírez was by far the most
embarrassing: A hundred and forty-seven pounds of pure muscle,
and Flórez, whom they’re starting now to call ‘La Piraña’,
gobbled her up in twenty-six seconds! Report by Ewan Whyte
