April 2, 2005 -Emerald Queen Casino, in Tacoma, Washington, and promoted by Brian Halquist Productions 
On the undercard, Junior welterweight Molly McConnell, now 4-0-0 (1KO), Portland, Oregon,  scored a four round majority decision win over Terry Blair, 5-8-1 (3KO), Louisville, Kentucky.  McConnell won the first two rounds on all three judge's cards because she was quicker and more accurate then Blair.  In the third, Blair settled down and used her jab to catch McConnell and keep her a bit off balance. Blair won the third on two judge's cards. The fourth round was very close. Blair and her corner knew she had to have a big round, but McConnell once again returned to the quick jab and then moved out of trouble. Blair maintained stiff pursuit, but she did not move her head well enough to keep it from being a target for McConnell's jab. One judge would give the round to Blair, and score the fight a draw. The other two scored the fourth for McConnell, one having the fight 40-36, the other 39-37.  ©Photos by Mike Blair.
