Poland's world champion, Agnieszka
Rylik faced a relatively
untested American opponent, Ragan Pudwill, in Rylik's
world title defence. Rylik looked fierce in her traditional black
boxing attire. In the first round, it was a tentative round for
both fighters. Rylik gauged Pudwill's ability, before looking
to step in. In the second round, Rylik became more
aggressive and began to dominant the round. Rylik began
scoring at will, stepping in and out with great accuracy.
Pudwill on the other hand looked blown already, getting hit with
alarming frequency. In the third round, Rylik delivered hard
and often blows. Pudwill was dropped in this round, but
managed to get up and taking the count and was saved by the end of
the round. In the fourth round, Pudwill was dropped again
early in the round, and allowed to continue. But, the next
knockdown spelled the end for the American's game challenge. Agnieszka Rylik, Poland,
