(JAN 24) Last night at the Isleta
Casino and Resort, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Holly Holm, 145.5,
won a 10-round unanimous decision over Myriam Lamare, 144.5, of
France. The two were fighting for the WIBA Welterweight world
championship. [Full video fight
is video-streamed on the WBAN member's site].
Chris Cozzone of New Mexico Boxing wrote the following:
"Albuquerque's Holly Holm
(23-1-3, 6 KOs) outboxed--but did not outslug France's
Myriam Lamare (16-3, 9
KOs) over ten rounds to retain her WIBA welterweight belt. Holm
built up an early lead, landing crisp rights on her foe, but Lamare
came alive in the late rounds, bombing Holm with big rights and
looping lefts. The scorecards read 96-94, 98-92 and 97-93 for Holm.
NewMexicoBoxing had it 96-94."
