St. John talked about wanting to avenge her loss against Christy Martin and would like a rematch. In the second women’s match, Betty Stephens, Salt Lake City, Utah, who came in eight pounds heavier (124 lbs) than Beth Westover, 116, from Boise, Idaho, won a four-round unanimous decision over Westover.
Westover showing a tad bit of humor after the fight,
donned a t-shirt with the saying “Tonya Who? Put up or shut
up”. Westover was referring to her original opponent Tonya
Harding who did not fight her, after Harding backed out
due to her trainer being served with a lawsuit in regards to
Harding fighting in Boise. Stephens moved her record to 2-0-0,
and Westover is now 1-1-0.
