  September 29, 2001 - Hamburg, Germany
The WIBF World Junior Bantamweight title fight between Daisy Lang and Michelle Sutcliffe came to an end in Hamburg tonight when Lang failed to answer the bell for the 8th round because of a bad gash over her left eye. However, because the injury was held to have resulted from a clash of heads, the fight went to the cards and Lang was declared the unanimous winner (68-66; 67-66; 68-66).  One boxing fan, Jon Fox, said, "I have two problems with this. Firstly, it is correct that there was a meeting of heads early in round 7 but no blood was in evidence until late in the round after Sutcliffe had landed in the area of Lang's left eye with at least 3 good overhead rights. Secondly, at the end of round 7,  I had Sutcliffe winning by 69-66."  Another boxing fan said, "There has just been a robbery in Germany. Daisy Lang was deemed by the ringside doctor, to not be able to continue, because of a cut caused by her opponents punches, YET Lang did NOT lose. In fact she was given the decision because she was ahead on points. She WON.  What a fix!" Lang fell to 14-1-1 and Sutcliffe fell to 5-6-0.

Marsha Valley TKO1 :38 seconds,  Kelly Whaley in a scheduled four rounder. Whaley wrote on the Boxing Rumble Forum, "First, a short comment on last nights fight with Marsha Valley. She started fast and quickly scored on three fast, not powerful but fast blows which resulted in the ref responding with an eight count. I was not hurt and was by no means "seeing stars" and had been in worst situations on other occasions. The ref asked me if I wanted to continue and I, of course, said yes. The ref stepped away and Bill stopped the fight. I totally disagreed with his action but he is my corner and husband so I respect his decision. Congratulations to Marsha. If I had to describe her in one word, it would be...Tornado." Valley improved her record to 8-5-4 (4KO), and Whaley fell to 3-9 (1KO).  Another bout on the card, was with Wendy Rodriguez of Los Angeles had a toe-to-toe six round match against Luz Rodriguez of Mexico, and won by a close majority decision.

September 19-22, 2001
USA Women's National Boxing Championships ..By Bonnie Canino (retired IFBA World Champion) 

One Hundred and sixty five competitors had pre-registered for the USA Women's National Boxing Championships, but only fifty-one women showed for the event.  This was the first time since the Nationals been going on that there has been such a small turn out.  We think it was due to the recent attack on America in New York and Washington D.C.  The women who showed up were very determined to make this amateur boxing event.  The event was especially important to the USA Boxing organization, because this was the first year that winners from the Women's National will qualified to attend the first Continental Games in October and the World games in November, which should have around thirty-eight countries entering their women boxers.

Anita Christensen fought a six-rounder against Damaris Muthoni.  The fight ended in a unanimous decision with Christensen walking away the winner.  Final scoring was 60-54, 60-54 & 60-53. News sources reported that  Anita Christensen was in control throughout the six rounds, although some ring rust was evident, after her forced inactivity due to having surgery to her right hand had kept her out of the ring.   Damaris Muthoni, showed a lot of grittiness and willing to go toe-to-toe with Christiansen.  Muthoni's powerful right hand remained dangerous throughout the fight.  There were no knockdowns in the fight, although Christiansen slipped in the second round, after being wrestled to the floor by Muthoni. Muthoni did receive a standing eight-count in the sixth round, but was able to weather the storn until the final bell. Christensen improved her undefeated record to 8-0-0 (5KO), and Muthoni dropped to 2-3.  Anita Christensen, who holds the European Bantamweight title, plans to fight twice in both October and November. Her goal is to fight for a world championship after these tune up fights. Information provided by Torben L. of Denmark.  Logged on records site

September 7, 2001 at the Raddisson Hotel, in Sacramento, California
Eliza Olson (granddaughter of Bo Bo Olson) wasted little time in going after her opponent, Robyn Covino.  According to Boxingtalk.net Ron Heard who covered the fight ringside, he said, "Eliza came out very hard and caught Covino with a nice left hook right in the middle of an exchange by the two ladies that sent Covino to the canvass at about 30 seconds into the first round. Covino got up and they went right back at it. Olson appeared to be confident and controlled the fight, over-powering Covino by throwing many combinations."  Ron went on to say, " Covino was game, she tried to trade back but she just was getting caught with clean hooks and she went down the second time at :58 seconds into the first round and it was over.   Clearly the best fight through the first four fights was the women."  Logged on records site

According to Warren Rutherford, he said, "No knockdowns this time, but the fight was hotly contest over the entire 10 rounds. Leona Brown who dumped Lisa in the first round of their last fight April 27th in Niagara Falls New York, came out maniacally trying to knock out Lisa Brown, who herself succeeded in knocking Leona down three times en route to a six-round decision the first time they met. But this time, Lisa, who trains in Toronto under the tutletage of Mike Doesberg and husband Errol, boxed her way to a clear ten-round decision.
