(JAN 28) HOLLYWOOD-It was a blockbuster rivaling the thousands of movies manufactured in the land of motion pictures, a premiere that took place in the heart of
the real Hollywood.

Women, take a bow.

From featherweights to super middleweights, the Ring of Their Own fighters promoted by Rock and Sock Productions unleashed a five bout card of female fighters eager to please at the world famous Hollywood Palladium on Friday.

In the main event, a match the was originally scheduled to take place in Palm Springs, saw Jeri Sitzes give away the first round to Jackie Chavez then stepped on the gas while over-powering her willing opponent and captured the NABF featherweight world title.

Sitzes plowed through Jackie Chavez (9-2, 3 Kos) with a blistering but controlled attack in capturing the vacant NABF featherweight world title on Friday.

Before 400 people Sitzes (9-5-1, 4 Kos), from Springfield, Missouri, won nine of 10 rounds with counter-rights and stinging left hooks against the tough New Mexican Chavez. The judges scored it 99-91, 98-92 twice for Sitzes.
“It feels awesome,” said Sitzes. “I was going for the knockout you all.”

Suswella Roberts (6-0) kept her winning streak alive in Hollywood, this time against Daria “TNT” Hill (3-3) with non-stop punching in capturing the WIBA America’s welterweight title. It was Robert’s toughest opponent, but she was able to stay inside the longer reach of Hill in winning a unanimous decision 59-52, 59-53 twice by the judges.

“She hits hard,” said Roberts of Hill who was much taller. “I think she was a real good fighter.”  Roberts is looking to get back in the ring soon.

Oxnard’s Crystal Morales (3-3-1) got her revenge against Sosa Razo (3-7-1) in a four-round fight with uppercuts and left hooks to the body. Last time she lost in a featherweight contest, this time it was at 130 pounds.

“It was hot and I got tired last time we fought in Sacramento,” said Morales who won by majority decision 38-38, 39-37 twice.  Razo started fast with a barrage of wide-swinging punches. But soon Morales began controlling the tempo and found room for her uppercuts and left hooks. “It was my uppercuts and body shots that won the fight this time,” said
Morales who is trained by former junior lightweight world champion Robert Garcia.

“We worked a lot on uppercuts,” said Garcia who also trains Mia St. John. “She’s also a lot harder t hit now.”

Erin Toughill (7-2-1) of Huntington Beach used straighter punches and more footwork to win by unanimous decision against Florida’s heavy-hitting Laura Ramsey (5-2). The judges scored it 58-56, 59-55 twice for Toughill who lost
last year to Laila Ali.

Ali, the light heavyweight world champion, was in attendance and is looking to fight some time in the spring. She looked ready to fight tomorrow.

Angelica Martinez (4-1-1), formerly of Oceanside and now living in Dallas, proved too sharp for the willing Yvonne Reis (5-9-1) for the WIBA Intercontinental welterweight title. Using crisp body punches and a sharp right hand, Martinez won handily 78-74, 80-82 twice according to the judges.
“It was amazing,” said Martinez after capturing the WIBA Intercontinental welterweight title. “She has a very awkward style to get used to

.”Martinez seemed the harder puncher but could never muster enough of an attack to trouble Reis. But the Floridian’s punches had no effect on Martinez who slipped body shots, right hands whenever she needed to score.
