(MAR 28) In the W.B.A. Super
Bantamweight women’s world championship match Lisa “Badnews” Brown
(17-4-3, 5 KO’s) of Toronto, won an impressive 100-90, 99-91, 99-92
unanimous decision victory over Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton (6-2-1,
1 KO) of Daly City, California.
This was Brown’s fifth different
world title! Julaton is the current W.B.O. and I.B.A. Super
Bantamweight world champion.The southpaw Brown came out fast
trying to impose her will on Julaton and never let up on her for
the entire fight. Brown used her feints well drawing Julaton in
and landed straight left hands over and over to the face of
Julaton. Julaton did not have an answer for Brown’s right hook
or straight left hands throughout the entire fight.
When Julaton was able to block the left Brown would then mix
things up with a left hook to the head of a straight left to the
body. Instead, Julaton would just lunge in at Brown and get
caught by the left hand over and over.
In the fifth round Julaton was cut on the left eye lid by a
punch however the ring doctor let the fight continue. By the end
of the fifth round both of Julaton’s cheeks were swollen and
puffy and blood streamed down her face. Mid way through the
sixth round Julaton lunged in to another left hand that opened
another cut on the corner of her eye. Brown continued to punish
Julaton for the rest of the fight. In fairness Julaton deserves
credit for hanging in tough and finishing the fight.
