Lee, who was the local favorite, was busier and a stronger fighter throughout the bout, beating Wilcox to the punch with effective combinations. In the eighth round, Lee appeared to be fatigued and Wilcox came back strong in that round, but in the ninth Lee came out strong, and in the final 20 seconds of that round, the fight was stopped.  The news source said that “Lee finds herself following in the footsteps of South Korean boxing pioneer Kim Ki-soo, who won the country’s first world title by taking the WBA junior middleweight crown in 1966.”  Lee gained interest in the sport after seeing Kim Messer in a match on Korean Television.    Logged on records site

September 20, 2003 - Savannah, Georgia
Well they did it to us again folks…Like a thief in the night, they snuck it in and stuck it to boxing fans…..AGAIN!  Just when we thought that the promoter /matchmaker who utilizes the very talented IBA World Champion Chevelle “Fists of Steel” Hallback on their cards would continue to use  viable opponents for Hallback-----they threw in a “stinker!” According to news sources, last night in Savannah, Georgia, Hallback made a VERY short night of fighting four-time loser, Michelle Ewing. Ewing has been stopped or KO'd in all of her four fights,  including her fight last night with Hallback that ended early in the fight after being knocked down three times. The two were not even in the same weight class, with Ewing weighing in at 151, Hallback at 137. (Note: Ewing's record has been confirmed on three different records sites that includes WBAN's records as a winless boxer coming into the fight with a 0-4-0 record.  If there are unreported fights for Ewing, feel free to send in the information to WBAN.)

September 19, 2003-4 Bears Casino, North Dakota
In front of about 1, 500 boxing fans,  and promoted by Dakota Storm Promotions,  Olivia Pereira, of Canada, fought to a six-round majority draw with Mia St. John.  Pereira's team told WBAN that they thought they had won the fight, and that they felt that Olivia had won all the rounds, except for maybe one that St. John won. They went on to say, "Lets do the fight again if Mia has the guts to step back in the ring with Olivia. " News sources reported that this was easily the "most entertaining bout" of the night.
MIA's Response about this fight: Mia told WBAN, "just to let WBAN know the truth,  one judge gave me 5 rounds to her one! The other two had it a draw. The entire crowd protested and booed the decision because I clearly won the fight! Michael Buffer had to calm them down by saying one judge did have it for Mia. If Olivia thinks she won that fight she's clearly delusional!  I will gladly rematch her again as soon as possible just to knock some sense into her!" Mia also talked about the weight, and said, "you can also remind Olivia that she didn't even make weight and I let her slide! I came in at 139 after drinking and eating all day and she came in at 142! The contract was 140 only because she couldn't make 135 then she couldn't even make 140!"  IN ANOTHER Women's Match, Shannon Gunville won a four-round unanimous decision over Lorie Mueller in a featherweight bout.Logged on records site

September 9, 2003 -Level Night Club, in Miami, Florida
There was a four-round heavyweight bout featuring 6'0" 193-lb Kathy Rivers, 35, vs. 5'5" Lisa McFarland, 40 years old and 200 lbs. This four-rounder was televised on ESPN2 "Tuesday Night Fights."   One fan wrote into WBAN and  they described the fight as "pathetic." Another fan described it as "unentertaining and boring."  A disappointed fan that has enjoyed Rivers in the past wrote, "It was ugly" and went on to say,  "Kathy only won because the other woman was worse." Folks...This IS NOT good for women's boxing...Kathy Rivers, donning a 12-3 record going into the fight, and presently rated as a top-ranked boxer in the world,  fought McFarland, a 2-3 boxer, who's only wins comes from "Tomato cans." Needless to say, in last night's bout, Rivers triumphed by stopping McFarland :57 seconds of the fourth round after McFarland turned her back on Rivers...yawn... Logged on records site

Featherweights Kelli Cofer of Ohio, had a six-round majority draw with Trish Hill. One boxing fan at the fight said that the Cofer/Hill fight was one of the best female fights he had ever seen.

Who in the world makes these matches...WBAN was under the impression that Ro had some great skills as a boxer, from being in the amateurs to having an undefeated record, and boxing for five years....Why are they putting Ro with these inept matchups?
