Final judges scores were 96-94, 96-94, 94-96. WBAN was told that this was a very exciting bout between the two, and that they fought toe-to-toe for 10 rounds.
 

In another world championship bout, Jeannine "Heartless" Garside , Windsor, Ontario, 126, winning the vacant featherweight world title, Laura Serrano, New Mexico, Mexico, 123, by a 10-round unanimous decision. Final judges scores were 98-90, 99-89, and 100-87. Garside was the faster and stronger of the two. Serrano fought tough, and did not give up.
 

Team Garside wrote, “Garside (6-0-1) was victorious over seasoned veteran Laura Serrano of Mexico. Garside knocked Serrano down twice during the bout and captured the WIBA Featherweight World Title. Serrano, who dropped to 16-5-4, is an icon is Women's Boxing, fighting Christy Martin, Tracy Byrd, Chevelle Hallback, Dierdre Gogarty, Isra Girgrah, Layla McCarter, Alicia Ashley, Melissa Del Valle, Jo Jo Wyman  and Kelsey Jeffries  among others, going undefeated for nine years in her illustrious career. Garside, who vacated her Jr. Featherweight Title earlier this year, exchanged fight trunks with Serrano immediately following the bout, which Serrano stated would be her last.”
 

In a third world championship bout, Melissa “Hurracan” Hernandez, 119, of Bronx, New York, won by a 10-round unanimous decision, and winning the vacant WIBA super bantamweight title, over Lisa "Bad News" Brown, 121, in what was described as Hernandez dominating the fight.
