(APR 26) This fight is clearly the reason that the Hammond Civic Center was so full of hungry-eyed fans. “Merciless” Mary McGee (Gary, IN) took on Kristy “Rose” Follmar (Indianapolis, IN) for the vacant WBC International Female Light Welterweight Championship. The thunderous applause in the Hammond Civic Center let me know that these fans had waited long enough for this fight to take place.

In a very close back-and-forth opening round, both fighters showed their tenacity and hunger for a victory, as McGee’s speed matched well with Follmar’s effective aggression. I was about to write that Follmar had clearly out hustled her opponent in the second round. . . .when McGee opened up an all-out assault in the closing seconds of the round that sent Follmar reeling a bit. I tell you one thing. I would NOT enjoy being a judge responsible for a clear decision on some of these rounds. Both fighters are imposing their wills on the other, both fighters are finding openings, and both fighters have piles of loud fans cheering them on.

In short, this is a GREAT match. Mary starts rounds off strong with her accurate jab, but Kristy sends the hooks to the body and head to make it difficult, again, to declare a clear winner of the round. McGee took the fifth round with her powerful straight punching. McGee pulls away with the sixth and seventh rounds, while Follmar shows, perhaps, a bit of ring rust. Follmar’s combination punching gives her the eighth round, but overall, she’s fading in her output numbers. Follmar takes the ninth with her combos, actually staggering McGee momentarily, setting up for the climax tenth and final round. WHAT A ROUND!

Unadulterated female aggression from pillar to post, of which if I had to pick a winner, I’d say McGee pulled ahead by the slimmest of margins with her uppercuts and crosses. 97-93 McGee, 95-95, 97-93 McGee, who improves her record to 17-0. . . . “Merciless” Mary
McGee wins a majority decision in a highly completive fight; possibly the best fight of ANY gender we’ll see this year in the state of Indiana.
