Watkins Wins by Majority Decision over Nielsen

(FEB 20) Once again, the ladies stole the show in Houston. On a card chock full of one-sided quick bouts, Kita Watkins and Michele Nielsen engaged in a back and forth battle which kept everyone on their seats edge from bell to bell. The unfortunate part is that a mere four two minute rounds couldn't possibly decide a clear cut winner.

Arkansas native Watkins had previously engaged in a spirited four round battle with Houston trained and New Orleans native Tiffany Junot while Houston's Nielsen was coming off a competitive showdown with cross-town rival Crystal Delgado.

The bout opened with the younger and more active Watkins showing a higher punch output and controlling the majority of the first round until Nielsen's strong body attack stemmed the tide and changed the momentum Watkins had built. Michelle carried the plan into the second round, controlling the action often bullying Watkins to the ropes and unloading her close range arsenal. The infighting produced a bloody stream coming from Nielsen's nose.

As the bout looked to be headed towards a down and dirty brawl, Watkins never wilted, utilizing her superior conditioning and athleticism to create range and unload straight shots on her forward charging foe. The final round was perhaps the closest of the fight, illustrating each warrior's desire for the victory.

In a fair world, this bout could only be decided a draw, but a 3-1 decision either way could be validly argued. In the end, one judge saw it 2-2, and the other two decided it 3-1 for Watkins resulting in a Majority Decision. Watkins improves to 5-5 while Nielsen now stands at 8-5-1.

Clearly, these two women needed more time to decide who was better, and most definitely the fans in attendance deserved to see more of two fighters leaving everything in the ring in order to achieve victory. Eight minutes is hardly enough for veterans of 10+ bouts to show everything they are capable of doing. Perhaps three minute rounds would have provided more clarity to the result. Any rematch between these ladies must be extended to six or eight rounds. After all, with the female boxers providing the best action on the card, why not give the fans as much of it as possible.
