August 31, 2006 -  All-Women’s card in Lake Tahoe, Nevada   
Elena Reid
, 111 ˝, won the WIBA World title over Mary Elizabeth Ortega, 112,  in a barn-burner 10 rounder by unanimous decision. Final judges scores 98-92, 98-92, and 97-93. Jill Emery, 143 ˝,  won  by a six-round unanimous decision over Daria Hill, 145. Final judges scores, 59-55, 59-55, and 58-56; Melissa Hernandez, 130,  TKO’d pro debuter Stacey Rogers, 124 ˝,  in the third round, after Rogers was taking too many shots, the ref stopped the fight; and Laura Ramsey, 160,  TKO’d Erin Toughill, 158,  in the first round. Apparently Toughill fell through the ropes which WBAN was told were loose. We have also been told that this was actually a KO with Toughill so will have more on this bout as information comes in.   Copyrighted photos by Alan Messick




Laura Ramsey vs. Erin Toughill

 WBAN has been able to obtain permission from "A Ring of Their Own", to video stream part of the first round of the  Laura Ramsey vs. Erin Toughill bout that took place on August 31, 2006. There was quite a bit media hype and controversy over this bout and how it actually had ended.  WBAN would like boxing fans to see the ending of the bout firsthand.  In this bout, Ramsey won by a first round TKO. Ramsey wasted little words about her thoughts on the match. Link Toughill gave her side of the story about the fight. Link
