Maureen Shea Wins
By: Ralph Rimpell at ringside
July 20, 2006
 

     
   
   
   
   

When boxing fans last saw Maureen Shea (6-0, 3KOs) fight back in May of this year, they saw her lose a split decision to a lesser fighter named Kim Colbert. Shea really beat herself because she allowed the showboating Colbert to take her away from what she does best, which is to box and move, not brawl.
 
Colbert later tested positive for marijuana and the bout was subsequently ruled a no contest. On Thursday at the Manhattan Center in New York, It seemed the same situation may happen to Shea once again. Shea took on Olga Heron (4-6, 1 KO) in a six round junior lightweight bout. From the sound of the first bell there appeared to be a new found focus in Sheas entire demeanor. Shea established her jab and picked her shots well. Heron unable to deal with Sheas speed did her best to engage in toe to toe action.

 By the second round it seemed that Shea, like last time, would fall for her opponents bait by brawling. Shea was able to get the better of the toe to toe exchanges due to her speed. In round three Shea returned to her jab and scored well, Heron did her best to taunt Shea with laughter as if to show her jab was not hurting her. Shea appeared to win the third round easily. By the fourth round, she again did more brawling then boxing with Heron. More of the same action would follow in round five. Round six was the most exciting because this fight could have been fought in a phone booth. It was non-stop action from the beginning of the final round to the end. A very close round. Official scores were 59-55, 60-54 twice all in favor of Shea. WBAN scored the fight 60-54 as well for Shea.

When asked how she rated her performance tonight, On a scale of 1-10, between 89.5, Shea replied. Regarding her next opponent she stated, Im willing to fight anyone my management puts in front of me. My job is to train. Shea is not looking to rush into a title fight anytime soon, but rather continue to gain more experience. She went on to say, I want more fights. I dont want to fight for a world title after six fights. I want to remembered as the best Maureen Shea possible. So my job is to train hard and whoever my management puts in front of me I will fight.
