(OCT 10) Last night in Marseilles,
France, In what was an exciting bout between Myriam Lamare vs. Ann
Marie Saccurato, Lamare won the 10-round title bout by a unanimous
decision. WBAN was told the fight had the fans out of the seats
cheering. Lamare not only won the WBFJunior Welterweight World
title, but also the WBAN Junior Welterweight Independent belt.
Lamare and Saccurato made history for WBAN by fighting for the first
WBAN Independent belt in Europe.
The judges were the
following: Ingo Barrabas Germany, Tonio Tiberi Luxemburg, Noel
Monnet France Donale Trella USA.
Mary Ann Owen told WBAN, "The
fight was highly competitive. Lamare trained with a new trainer
Said Bennajem from Paris, France. Lamare had some
different moves that caught Saccurato by surprise. Saccurato
went toe to toe in heated two minute rounds for ten rounds.
Lamare was a gracious winner pulling Saccurato into the center
of the ring to pose for photos."
WBAN is extremely proud of Lamare. She joins Holly Holm and
Chevelle Hallback, as our WBAN belt holders, with Holm winning
the WBAN Junior middleweight; Hallback, the lightweight WBAN
belt, and now Lamare, as our WBAN Junior Welterweight holder.
