Holly Holm became a three time World Champion Friday night as she captured the IFBA Jr. Middleweight to go along with her IBA Jr. Welterweight title and WBA Welterweight title with an almost complete shutout of Trica Turton. Holm captured the title by the scores of 100-90 twice and 99-91 on the final card. Holm was the bigger and quicker of the two and it showed as she was able to dominate the game Turton, who was just to small.

Holm came out strong in round one landing lead left hands to the head of Turton, but to Turtonís credit she shook it off and landed a few left hands of herself as both fighters being left-handed would use their left as their primary weapon. In the final: 30 of the round Holm turned it on and landed quick combinations to the head of Turton. Holmís speed defiantly paid off in the opening stanza.

Much of the same in the second & third rounds as Holmís speed was the difference. Turton would try to cut off the ring on Holm but Holm was able to move and land quick flurries. Turtonís nose started to bleed. Turton was unable land more then one punch at a time.

Round four had Turton still coming forward with Holm picking her apart with quick flurries. Turton showed a lot of frustration as she was unable to land on Holm flush, but to Turton credit she kept coming forward and held nothing back.

Turton kept the pressure on Holm in rounds five and six, but once again Holm countered well landing hard right hooks to the head of Turton, who had trouble getting inside Holmís long arms and when she was able to get close didnít have the power to do damage.

Holm dominated rounds seven thru nine with constant right hands to the head of Turton with Turton being game but unable to land anything significant. Turton looked more and more flustered with her unable to trap Holm; in fact Holm now had Turton going to ropes more. Turton couldnít get inside Holmís long arms missing most of her shots while Holm continued to land.

Holm looked to put more power shots in the tenth and final round as she trapped Turton early in the round landing hard left hands to the head of Turton but Turton would take it like a true Gladiator, but she could muster one last rally. It was all Holm.

Holm now looks to head to Denver to see her favorite football team the Broncos battle Seattle on Sunday. Holm dedicated the fight to Vicente Garcia who was killed last month, she also looks to return in February.


ESQUIBEL HAS EASY NIGHT
Jodi Esquibel had more trouble figuring out who her opponent would be then her fight itself. Esquibel had her opponent changed three times since the final press conference this past Wednesday. One was finally secured the day of the fight; Holly Kumisch was brought in from Wyoming to fight Esquibel.

It looked to be a mismatch early as Kumisch had no defense for Esquibel who could have ended the fight at anytime. Esquibel landed a hard right hand to the head of Kumisch that had her turn her back on referee Rocky Burke; from there it was all Esquibel as she continued to land until Burke halted the action at 1:03.


Esquibel raises her record to 4-1, while the pro debut of Kumisch, who should think of another way to make money falls to 0-1. Esquibel looks to get back in the ring soon; it has been hard for her promoter Lenny Fresquez  to get her a suitable opponent due to her size there just isnít enough 107 pound women her in the United States, with most being over seas in the Orient.
