All-Women’s Card in Kansas City
(FEB 18) On February 16th, at the Harrah’s, in Kansas City,
Missouri, there was a night of action in women’s boxing. In the main
event, Hollie Dunaway won a 10-round unanimous decision over
Melissa Shaffer. When the winner was announced, there was
some confusion, when the ring announcer, said that their was a “new
WIBA World Minimumweight champion.”
Shaffer briefly celebrated the
announcement, thinking that she had won the title. Dunaway and the
ref looked puzzled. Before announcing the name of the winner, the
ring announcement was corrected to say that Dunaway was actually
STILL the WIBA Minimumweight champion, then announced Hollie Dunaway
as the winner.
In other action-filled bouts,
Super-featherweights Kelli Cofer of Ohio won a six-round
unanimous decision over Liz Drew.Windsor’s Super Bantamweight Jeannine
Garside, stopped her opponent, Kim Colbert in the third
round, of a scheduled six round bout.
Minimumweight Holly “Baby Face” Shore won a four-round
unanimous decision over Savannah Hill.
Lastly, in a Lt.
Heavyweight bout, scheduled for four rounds, Bose Ljoala, won
her first pro bout, when she took the bout by a four-round unanimous
decision over pro debuter LaMara Iverson.
