JULY 2008

July 31, 2008 -  Frontier Field, Rochester, New York
In the main event, Ela "Bam Bam" Nunez, 121½, won the IWBF jr. featherweight world championship with a ten round unanimous decision over Dominga Oliva, 122. Scores were 100-90, 98-94, 97-93.

July 31, 2008 -  Schuetzen Park, in North Bergen, New Jersey
Ava “Lady of Boxing” Knight, 117, of Chico, California,  remains undefeated at 4-0-2 (2KO), when she stopped Canadian Noriko Kariya, 119, by KO [20 seconds] in the fifth round of a scheduled six-rounder. Mike In reported the following: "The show began with local favorite Noriko Kariya battling it out with nineteen year-old Californian Ava Knight, in a rare female bout. Trailing on the scorecards after four rounds of the scheduled six rounder, Kariya was boxing well but absorbing several clean power shots from the taller, well-skilled fighter. Early in round five Knight crushed Kariya with a huge right hand, sending the stunned Canadian-born bantamweight crumbling backwards onto the seat of her
pants. Momentarily debilitated and obviously hurt, the gutsy Kariya valiantly tried to get to her feet but could not, getting co
unted out by referee Sparkle Lee at the 20 second mark of the fateful fifth round. A tremendous showing by Knight, who stays unbeaten at 4-0-2 (3 KO’s) with the knockout victory, while the likable Kariya now stands at 9-3-1 (2 KO’s)." [Logged into master search]

July 12, 2008 - Jevanjee Gardens in the Central Business District of Nairobi, Kenya
Charity Mukami
had a draw against
Patroda Lihavi.
Report by Edward Sande:
Barely 24 hours after another Kenyan Conjestina Achieng was perceived to have lost unfairly in a contest against Natasha Ragosina, womens' boxing's ugly side reared its head again in a non-title fight in Nairobi Kenya.  [In Sande's opinion], everybody at the Jevanjee Gardens agreed that Middleweight Charity "Scary" Mukami won a shutout victory against fellow Kenyan Patroda Lihavi. The Kenya Professional Boxing Commission (KPBC) however had other ideas and scored the fight a draw. Promoter Atomic Bunde did not mince his words. "It's a disgrace, the decision is a clear affront to all boxing fans who attended the event and more so for Mukami".  Bunde added, "We will launch a formal complaint on the issue though I know that the decision will stand." Mukami was clearly in charge, stepping back at the right time, and landing clear crisp jabs on Lihavi. The crowd was shocked when KPBC Secretary General announced decision as a draw.  One or two hooks that Lihavi landed on Mukami were certainly not enough to earn her a draw. Mukami's record is now 2 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw, while Lihavi registered her best 'result' adding a draw to her 0-3 record.

July 12, 2008 - Color Line Arena, Altona, Hamburg, Germany
Middleweight S'Kati Katz, of Austin, Texas, won a four-round bout by points over Daria Albers.

July 12, 2008 - Ferndale, Washington
Report/Photos by Mike Blair
[Photo Gallery #486, Flash Photo Slideshow #88]
Two Canadian featherweights faced each other over four rounds Saturday night at the Silver Reef Casino and Resort in Ferndale, Washington. Wendy Roy (0-4) fought for the first time in the United States, facing Sarah Pucek (1-0) who made her pro debut in Tacoma a while back. Pucek worked her way through the amateur ranks before turning pro; Roy had no amateur career, choosing instead to throw herself in to the professional mix two years ago. Full Fight report

July 11, 2008 - Club Defensores de Villa Lujan, in Tucuman, Argentina
After nearly one year of inactivity junior featherweight Alejandra Oliveras returned to the ring and won an eight-round unanimous decision over Carmen Montiel. According to the MDZ Online, they reported that Oliveras was none too impressive on her return to the ring. They stated that Montiel dominated various phases of the fight and had her down in the 4th. At the end, Oliveras asked for the microphone and tried to explain that despite the knockdown she was superior to Montiel but was unable to make herself heard above the booing and whistling.

July 11, 2008 - Faehrhafen, Cuxhaven, Niedersachsen, Germany
Natascha Ragosina
won by a 10-round unanimous decision against Conjestina Achieng.  The two fought for the WIBA, WIBF, WBC, WBA world titles. Ewan Whyte wrote:
She came dressed as Supergirl but it would be a lie to say Natascha Ragosina fought like a girl. She didn’t fight at all. She ‘boxed’ (we are told), which meant trying to keep the challenger at arm’s length (further still, if possible) for twenty short minutes while the clock ran down. She didn’t even make a very good job of that, it has to be said; Achieng cornered her on quite a few occasions with surprising ease, and when she did, she landed some quite good punches. Ragosina neither landed nor even threw anything all night that would have smudged your granny’s make-up, yet according to the promoter, Ulf Steinforth, the decision (97-93, 96-94, 97-93) in her favour was correct. What we saw tonight, he told us, was “a class boxer against a fighter”. This ‘fighter/boxer’ dichotomy will be the death of boxing. Sport is about two people or two teams attempting to do the same thing, with each trying to do it better than the other. If they in fact have different objectives, then separate sports are needed to accommodate them. Otherwise it becomes not only farcical but unfair.  Full Story  In a second women's bout featherweight Esther Schouten TKO'd [1:14] Damaris Muthoni in the fourth round of a six round bout.
