(JAN 15) In another women's bout (total five women's bouts on card) of the
Regina Halmich vs. Marylin Hernandez card, there was a vast gulf in

lives from boxing, but whereas Sahin, with her long amateur experience,
knows exactly what’s she doing in the ring (what Michael Timms tells her,

professional, Frenzel did rather look like someone for whom boxing was just
a whim. One of those incomprehensible whims that have people asking: “Why on
earth does she do it?”

to herself tomorrow,” said the commentator. She was administered a beating
tonight, but you had to admire her courage.
100-90, 100-91, 100-90, the scores.
