WHEELING ISLAND – (MAR 24) – Here, at
the Wheeling Island Casino, McKeesport local middleweight woman
boxer Natiata ‘Girliegirl’ Porter took all her years of training, in
combination with her natural raw talent, into the ring with her
tonight and never looked back, winning her first fight, in her first
attempt – a very special feeling, indeed.
|For any boxer, male or female,
there is not a more exhilarating feeling than when your arm is
raised in victory.
Boxers photo, records, mpegs, and more!
En route to a 4-round unanimous decision
victory, Porter had one anxious moment to contend with in the second
round, when her opponent, Gwen Wood, staggered her with a ‘haymaker’
that came from out of no where, leaving Porter’s legs to ever so
briefly buckle, but Porter took heart and shook it off, finishing
the fight, winning the third and fourth rounds rather easily.
All three judges at ringside scored the fight 39-37 for Porter.
