June 11, 1999 -National Pay-Per-View All Female Card, Bossier City, Louisiana   Leah Mellinger  vs. Hannah Fox battled it out in a 10-round IFBA Jr. Welterweight Championship! Mellinger was given an ole' "one-two" shortly before fighting Fox by discovering that her long-time trainer, Terry Nye was in her opposition's corner, working as an advisor for Hannah Fox. Many of WBAN's visitors have been participating in a Public Poll about the situation and are not happy about what he did, others think that Mellinger would have lost anyway, and that it was fair. The fight went to a unanimous decision .99-91, 100-90 , 98-92. HANNAH FOX IS THE NEW IFBA JR. WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION ; Kim Messer  vs. Maribel Ocasio Soto in a 6-rounder, that ended when Soto refused to come out in the fifth round, giving Messer a win by a TKO! Sources said that when Soto would not come out for the fifth round that her trainer slapped her in the face! MESSER WIN BY TKO 5th ROUND; Eva Jones-Young vs. Leona Brown walks away with the belt this night when she defeats Brown in a 10-round Unanimous decision 99-91, 98-92, 98-92 EVA JONES-YOUNG NEW IFBA BANTAMWEIGHT CHAMPION; Denise Moraetes (Friendly) had a very exciting match against Glenda Watkins, that according to sources has not only dropped weight but is starting to gain some substantial skills. Moraetes won by a unanimous decision of 79-73, 79-73, 78-74; Mary Elizabeth Ortega vs. Nora Daigle fought in a 6-round match. This fight was not televised and Ortega was especially disappointed, as she walked away with a win with the scoring at 58-56, 60-54, and 60-54. ; Chevelle Hallback  won a four-round unanimous decision over Hayde Nunez - 4 - rounder.  ©Photos by Mary Ann Owen
