One Step Forward, Two Steps back...
July 6, 2006

     
   
   
   
   

(JULY 6) Last night at the City Auditorium, in Colorado Springs, and televised on ESPN2,  there was a questionable rematch of a women’s boxing bout on that card between Unity Young, 98 ¼, and Chantel Cordova, 102 ½..

Cordova, with a former solid amateur background, beginning her boxing career in 1996, has now moved her pro boxing record up another notch when she defeated Young by a first round TKO---again. Cordova TKO'd Young in the first round in their first bout.  Cordova is currently 4-0-0 (3KO), with other wins over Gina Abel and Camela Parker.

According to one observer, Young was an absolute no-hoper, and the bout was excruciating to watch.

So what were some of the HOT comments made to WBAN and on the net about this fight and the card?

Given Cordova's background and the fact that she had "fought" Unity Young before, it was disgraceful that this "bout" was allowed to go forward on the card. It served no purpose at all other than to give Cordova a meaningless "win" while taking valuable air time on TV.

Who can we blame? Do you blame the fighters or the promoters? Can you blame ESPN? It was a disgusting show! (excerpt)

I was embarrassed for Unity (Young) and then when Teddy (Atlas) said that’s why people won’t watch women’s boxing, that so true cause they don’t put the real female boxers that hit in the gym and can really do their thing in the spotlight and I know Colorado has some ladies that could of put on a better show then that crap last night. (excerpt)

This was easily one of ESPN's worst televised cards of 2006, maybe of the last few years. The promoter & matchmaker should be embarrassed, and the few that attended should ask for a refund.

Chantel Cordova stopped Unity Young in the first round in a terrible match up.  Time 1:06. (Excerpt from boxing report)

When a Colorado fighter fights anyone outside our State I watch and I root for them to win no matter who they are, I support our Colorado fighters. When we have something happen like what happened last night I am truly embarrassed! That was not what Colorado boxing is about that might have been two or three of our best prospects but there talents weren't tested to be shown!

In a biography of Cordova she listed “Desperate Housewives” as her favorite TV show. We noticed there was no mention of ESPN being her favorite in that bio---good choice.

(According to the BUZZ on the net, the women's bout was not the only poorly matched bout.)
