(SEPT 12) On September 10, in Karlsruhe, Germany, Regina Hamich won a 10-round split decision over Spain's Maria Jesus Rosa.  WBAN received a round by round report:

ROUND 1
Maria Jesus Rosa doesn’t waste much time and immediately launches a number of fierce attacks, forcing Regina backwards. She shows good skills and manages to pin Halmich against the ropes twice. Maria is about 3 inches shorter than Regina, but somehow this doesn’t show at all. 

ROUND 2
An aggressive start by Maria Rosa. At about half a minute into the round, she pins Halmich against the ropes again, throwing a variety of punches. After that, the round is pretty even but Rosa mostly takes the initiative, moving forward all he time.

ROUND 3
Once more, Rosa opens with a fierce attack, forcing Halmich to retreat. She keeps on dominating the fight and Halmich absorbs quite a lot of jabs and body shots.

ROUND 4
Rosa keeps moving forward incessantly, using various techniques to keep the pressure on Halmich. Regina counters effectively though,but remains on the defensive for most of the round.

ROUND 5
Again, there are a number of fierce exchanges. Both fighters dig in their heels. The pace is still incredibly high in this attractive, action-packed bout.

ROUND 6
Boht ladies land nice combinations, Regina mostly aiming at her smaller opponent’s head, while Maria works Halmich’s body. Towards the end, Halmich complains to the referee about Maria’s body shots that are sometimes very low.  Halmich improves steadily in this bout, but so far Maria Rosa still has a slight edge on my card.

ROUND 7
Rosa keeps testing Halmich’s defenses, but the latter counters more and more effectively and gradually takes control of the fight.

ROUND 8
A good start from Halmich, but Rosa tries to take over in the second part of the round.

ROUND 9
When hearing the opening bell, Rosa start hammering away at her opponent with a number of hooks and body shots, but quite a few miss their mark.  Then Halmich takes the edge, hitting Rosa in the head quite often. In the final part of the round, the German boxing queen clearly dominates.

ROUND 10
Maria opens once again, throwing everything she’s left into the fight. She’s no doubt the more aggressive fighter, but Regina’s punches seems to be more powerful.
 

Results:
Halmich wins by split decision:    André Van Grotenbruel (Belgium)  94-96 for Rosa ; Arno Pockrandt (Germany) 98-92 for Halmich;         Jean-Louis Legland (France) 96-94 for Halmich. 

Comment:
It was a close fight that was very difficult to score. Maria Jesus Rosa definitely threw more punches (Halmich herself admitted as much after the fight), but Regina’s were more effective and had more power. I tend to agree with judge Van Grotenbruel’s verdict (96-94 for Rosa), but I think a draw would also have been justifiable. What struck me about this verdict, is that the opinion of the German judge is totally different from that of his colleagues, he didn’t see it as a close fight.
Without wanting to take anything away from Halmich’s excellent performance, I think that it’s totally unacceptable that one of the judges is a compatriot of one of the fighters, especially if the fight takes place in her hometown. If the judges had all come from ‘neutral’ countries, the result may well have been different. Beside that,  it was great to watch such a fantastic fight.
