the following: "Both
women mixed it up from start to finish in the four round event,
with Nunez coming away with a majority decision - two judges
calling the fight for Nunez and one calling it a draw. Nearly
everyone on press row thought it should have been a draw, with
Garbatt winning rounds 2 and 4, while Nunez carried the first
and third. The crowd voiced their displeasure, raining down a
chorus of boos after the decision. Nunez improved to 3-2, but
