(MAR 25) Last night at the Shaw
Conference Centre, in Edmonton, Canada, Jelena Mrdjenovich
of Edmonton, wasted little time in stopping Donna
Biggers of North Carolina. The fight ended at 2:00 in the
|In the Edmonton Sun they
said that it was a one-sided TKO beat-down.
Boxerss, and more!
One Canadian boxing fan wrote to WBAN after the fight and
said, “By no means do I want to take anything away
from Donna Biggers, it takes guts and a lot of heart to get
out there, but when you look at her opponents, three-fourths
of her fights were four-rounders!”
The question WBAN has is will
Team Mrdjenovich now look at fighting the top women in her
weight class. WBAN has Mrdjenovich
ranked #7, not even CLOSE to the top. In fact
she would probably get a nosebleed just looking up at who is over
her in the WBAN rankings.
Mrdjenovich will need to focus on these boxers to move up in
Tracy Byrd #6.
Second question for Mrdjenovich is ----will she EVER
FIGHT out of the confines of CANADA?
Mrdjenovich has had 16 fights---ALL in
Canada. Can any boxer bring her to their hometown or in
a neutral venue?
McCarter couldn't. Layla McCarter delivered
Mrdjenovich's her only loss, and then lost to Mrdjenovich,
when breaking her arm
during that second match. Both times McCarter had to go to
Canada to fight her. McCarter and their team found a venue in
the United States to fight their "trilogy" fight---Team Mrdjenovich
apparently was not interested---the third fight never
In this over-matched "World Title with the WBC" , it was noted that
Mrdjenovich had ”no problem” making her first “defense”.
According to the Edmonton Sun, Mrdjenovich had Biggers “rattled
early in the first round.” They went on to say, “Battered and badly
damaged, Biggers survived another thrashing in the second, but the
fight was halted at the round's conclusion. “
