New Orleans Hotel and Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada
Melinda Cooper, 120, now 16-0-0, of Las Vegas, won a
four-round unanimous decision over Mexico's Lina Ramirez,
124. This is the third time the two have fought with their last
bout that took place on May 13, 2005, at the Plaza Hotel. Their
first fight in May of 2004, ended in an early stoppage of Ramirez.
Cooper was originally supposed to fight Susana Morales, but Morales
had just fought on June 24th , and was stopped in that
bout. Looks like it is time to move on to other prey in the sport,
now that Ramirez is 0-3-0 to Cooper alone. ©Copyrighted
