Salandy Stops Mooney
September 17, 2006

     
   
   
   
   

(SEPT 17) On Saturday, September 15th, Jizelle Salandy, 152,  of Trinidad, stopped Elizabeth Mooney, 154, of the United States, by TKO in the eighth round. The fight took place in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago.

WBAN received some details of this bout in which it was reported that Mooney came out very aggressively in the first round to take control of the fight with some combinations of her own; uppercuts, jabs and some to the body, but Salandy would not have any of that. Salandy came to the center of the ring where she started to settle and throw combinations of her own to the midsection and Mooney’s head. After, Salandy took control with several punches about the body. That pattern continued right through to the fourth round. She then continued the control with good body shots and straight rights. She staggered Mooney in the sixth and seventh round and Mooney quit the fight in the eighth round, giving Salandy the victory.

According to this source, Salandy has created history for her native homeland Trinidad and Tobago, by being the first female boxer to unify the two world titles and being the first boxer in the history of West Indies to win these two titles under the same umbrella.

Salandy does a lot of community work by way of helping the needy in her homeland. She is also a very spiritual person in planning to use her two titles to inspire the youths of her nation to get involved in sports, walk away from a life of crime, to excel in whatever they do, be it academics, sports, trade, or anything skill wise. Salandy said feeding the poor inspired her to know that she was fighting for them and poverty and crime are situations she would like to see eradicated,” added Potts.

When asked how she felt after fight, whilst being very emotional and tearful, she was quick to thank her Prime Minister, Patrick Manning, her Minister of Sports, Roger Boynes, her Minister of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs, Ms. Joan Yuille-Williams, and her dynamics Sports Director, Mr. Paul Newallo, who is always ready and willing to give good advice and lend a helping hand.

Mr. Potts said when we approached the Ministry of Sports with this proposal three months ago, the Ministry along with his sport director, was quick to jump on board and pledged almost a hundred thousand dollars for these two titles saying that this is good for the country and is worth the investment. Boxu Potts said that sports has excelled under Minister Boynes in a positive way. It is either he is an obeah man, very lucky, or a hardworking Minister. Whatever it is, sports is going in a positive direction under his stewardship.

Jizelle said she is going to rest for two days then go back to the gym on Tuesday. When asked why so soon, she said the only thing I fear in boxing is to lose my condition. She said she realizes boxing is serious business. It is a hurting sport and you have to keep yourself in the best condition if you intend to do justice for yourself and represent your nation. (WBAN's ranking for Salandy is #11; Mooney #12)

Also on the undercard, Scroller Carrington, 172, won on points over Chico (Margaret) Walcott, 175.  The bout was six rounds.
