Elena "Baby Doll" Reid, 116,  had a six-round draw with Mariana Juarez, 114. The two brought the house down with an action-packed bout. Final scoring by judges were 58-56, 57-57 and 57-57.  In the Arizona Republic, they wrote, "The best was delivered by bantamweights Elena Reid (13-1-3) of Phoenix and Mariana Juarez (9-3-3) of Mexico City. They fought to a draw. The decision drew a chorus of boos from a lively crowd of more than 1,000, but there were only wild cheers for the fighters, both of whom were dazed at different points throughout the six-rounder.  Fans wanted something decisive. In a couple of months, they may get it. A rematch was announced for Aug. 21, also at Celebrity."
