Behind the Scenes With TL Fox at the All-Women's Card in Laughlin - PART II   PART I
Photos and Story by Sue TL Fox

THE FIGHTS - PART II

The first fight on the card was between Shadina Pennybaker and Daria “Ringname” Hill, of New Jersey.  In what could have been the best fight of the night (but as boxing fans found out) all of the matches could have been classified as the best fight of the night, This fight was an outright war for six rounds.   Both boxers knocked down each other, with Pennybaker taking two knockdowns, and Hill one knockdown.

Hill was the much taller opponent, and displayed a disciplined style of boxing. Pennybaker more of the brawler.  The combination made a dynamite duo.  When the referee announced that Pennybaker won by a unanimous decision it was not without some of the crowd booing at the decision. Both fighters not only displayed great skill, but very good sportsmanship.  The final judges scores were 57-55, 56-55, and 56-55.


Rita Valentini (L) - Jeannine Garside (R)

In the second fight of the night, was a six rounder between Jeannine Garside, 130, of Windsor, Canada and Rita Valentini, 125, of Hollywood, California.  Garside coming into the bout was 2-0-0, but with a 40 plus former amateur boxing record.  In the first round, Garside took her time to get a good feel for fighting Valentini, and it was one of the better rounds for Valentini.  After the first round, it did not take long for Garside to dominate the bout.  Garside won by a fifth round TKO, 1:25 seconds.   Garside is a stellar example, why women should try to learn their skills in the amateurs before turning pro.  She went to the body, throwing effective combinations, and as the fight progressed she continued to put more pressure on Valentini.  Valentini went into the match and fought very hard, with a lot of heart.   The crowd immediately took to Valentini, and kept yelling out, “Go Hollywood”.  But as the fight continued, there were less “Go Hollywoods” and more murmurs that the Canadian boxer was doing body shots and throwing some heavy leather against Valentini.



Carina Moreno (L) - Elena "Baby Doll  Reid

 In the third bout, they had a special feature with Elena "Baby Doll" Reid, of Las Vegas,  fighting a four-round exhibition against Carina Moreno.  Reid was dressed in her traditional “pink attire” and as she entered the ring and took off her robe, the crowd roared “Baby Doll”.  It is obvious that Reid is developing a following in the sport. This was an exhibition “warm up” for  both Reid and Moreno's upcoming world title bouts. Reid is fighting Regina Halmich in a rematch on December 3,  2005, in Germany (WIBF belt), and Moreno will be fighting Siriporn in Thailand (WBC belt). When the exhibition began, the crowd was still reeling off of the excitement of the first two fights, and they quickly wanted to see the same fierce action that they had just experienced.  So it appeared that they did not understand that it was an exhibition match, and they continued to yell out,  “Take the headgear off!.”  The ring announcer continued to say between each round that the fight was an exhibition, and at the end of the four rounds, no scoring was announced, and both boxers exited the ring.


Laura Ramsey (L) - Asa Sandell (R)

 In the fourth bout of the night, Laura "Lady Ram" Ramsey, 164, of Florida, fought Sweden's Asa Sandell, 165.  In the first round,  Sandell threw crisp jabs, and had an obvious height advantage. In the second round, Sandell began to have a nose bleed, and had an accidental slip this round. In the sixth round, Ramsey knocked Sandell to the canvas, with her taking an eight count. Ramsey won the fight by a six-round split decision.  When the “split decision” was announced, the crowd behind me actually gasped, because there did not seem to be any doubt that Ramsey won this fight.

In the main event, Wendy Rodriguez, 105,  won an eight-round unanimous decision over Yvonne Caples, 105.  The two mixed it up for eight rounds, with Rodriguez out-pointing Caples.  There were no knockdowns in the bout. 

In between all of the bouts on the card, Jackie Kallen, went center ring and interview the winner of the bouts.  Arnie Rosenthal, and Ken Weiss, along with matchmaker Wanda Bruce put on an excellent show, with great matchups.
