  Round by Round: Reid - Halmich
Do you have a comment?   Editorial by Avila

(SEPT 12) Special Report by Peter Geudens of Belgium who gives a round by round account!


Round 1  

Elena Reid makes a great impression right from the start. The southpaw not only looks stunning in her pink baby doll outfit, she also fights very aggressively, moving forward from the beginning. Halmich counters effectively. A pretty even round.


Round 2  

Reid again takes the initiative. Both fighters throw in several good combinations. In the final seconds, Halmich comes through with a right cross and a left jab. A slight advantage for Halmich in this round.


Round 3  

Elena starts rather slow this time, but gradually puts up the pressure. Halfway through the round she hits Regina a few times with a powerful left and towards the end she unleashes a flurry of punches. Halmich seems to be in trouble for a moment. This round is definitely Elena’s round.


Round 4  

A strong start from both fighters. Reid takes the upper hand again and is especially successful with powerful left crosses and jabs.


Round 5  

While she keeps using her left hand, Elena also steadily works her opponent’s body now. She dominates most of the round but Regina has her moments as well. She throws an awesome right jab in the last few seconds.


Round 6  

After 30 seconds, Reid puts Halmich against the ropes and puts her under a lot of pressure. At 1’10” Halmich counters effectively with a few excellent left hooks and jabs to the face. Elena wins this round, though.


Round 7  

Again, it’s Elena who opens. She keeps moving forward and still looks perfectly fit. Both fighters throw in good combos, but Reid is more active and more accurate.


Round 8  

An excellent round. There are quite a few fierce exchanges, Elena seems to be a bit quicker, but it’s a close round.


Round 9  

Halmich starts aggressively after the opening bell. Then she slows somewhat down, but takes the lead in the first part of the round. In the second half, Elena makes an impressive comeback, connecting several times with a powerful left to the face.


Round 10  

A very strong start by Reid. Both fighters give it all in this last round and turn it into a real slugfest. Again, Reid proves to be quicker and hits her mark more often than her opponent.

Baby Doll radiates joy after the fight, cheered by an enthusiast crowd. Halmich looks rather worried. She even raises her opponent’s hand (in victory?) before the verdict is announced.

The judges scored the fight as follows:
Roger Tillemann (Belgium): 93 – 97 for Reid
Leszek Jankowiak (Poland): 97 – 97
Oliver Evers (Germany): 98 - 94 for Halmich

In other words, the fight ends in a draw so that Halmich retains her title.

Poor Elena, who had fought so well, bursts into tears on hearing this decision.

The Germans tv-presenter calls it “an incomprehensible decision” and “a scandal”.

Regina doesn’t want to comment on the judges’ decision but admits that she was worried that she ‘d lose her title and indicates that she would have accepted it if the judges had given the fight to Elena.

Jean Marcel Nartz from Universum Box Promotion admits that Regina “was a bit lucky” and that Elena would’ve won the fight if it had taken place in the U.S.

Elena herself is a real good sport about the whole thing. When she’s interviewed, she has already regained her charming smile. She doesn’t comment on the decision either and says she’s looking forward to the rematch and that next time she will “win even more”. Upon this she blows kisses and thanks the crowd who cheer her once more.

It was definitely a good fight with two crowd-pleasing athletes who lived up to expectations. Especially Elena made a great impression.  As for the decision… the good news is that everybody agreed on having a rematch!
