Salandy Wins five world titles
December 10, 2006

**Update: RIP Salandy/killed in Vehicle Accident

     
   
   
   
   

(DEC 10) Last night boxing world record history was made in Trinidad and Tobago, when at the Jean Pierre Complex, Port of Spain, in Trinidad West Indies, Gizelle Salandy of Trinidad won five (Junior Middleweight) world title belts, that included the WBA, WBC, NABC, WBE, and IWBF.

Promoter Boxu Potts has already applied for recognition for this fight to be inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Salandy, 149 ¼, defeated her opponent, Mariem Brakache, 151,  with a 10-round unanimous decision.

Potts said in a press release, “From the onset, both fighters went at each other through the bout like two pit bulls. Salandy used a lot of lateral movements while displaying good hand speed, but Brakache soon adapted to her style, by cutting off the ring and drawing Salandy back into a slugfest, which suited Brakache’s style of fighting.

In the preflight press conference, Salandy had stated to have a short night, with Brakache, i.e., the judges and referees would not have any work to do. Salandy also said that the only thing the referee would have to do is count Brakach out from one to ten, but Brakache won a lot of fans with her relentless punching style, while she was cutting off the ring.

Final judges scores for the bout: Judge George Sntaude scored 98-92; Judge McKenzie Granger, 98-92; and Judge Trevor Arno, scored 96-94.

At the end of the fight, both fighters congratulated each other and Salandy promised Brakache a rematch. Potts stated that he was satisfied with the performance of both fighters. He said, “It is fights like this where it generates public interest, and also gives credence to the world of women boxing.”
