West Stops Gladney by TKO and Wins WBO Title

(SEPT 20) On Saturday night at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, California, Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West, 118,  stopped Angel Gladney, 117,  by TKO [59 sec] in the seventh round of a scheduled 10 round title bout.  The two were fighting for the vacant WBO Bantamweight title.

Although the first round started of a bit slow the women picked up the pace by the second round. Both fighters were a bit cautious at times yet they were both successful at landing punches that scored. Sometime during the third round Gladney suffered a cut just over the corner of her left eye. The cut required 4 sutures. It appeared [to me] that the cut was caused by an accidental clash of heads, however the referee determined the cut was sustained from a punch.

It wasn’t until the fourth round that you began to see the kind of action that would determine this fight. With a roll of the ankle Gladney went down. Although it was ruled a slip, it was very clear that the ankle injury was a problem for Gladney. With the decreased movement West was able to hone in and target Gladney. Although both of them had landed well with their hooks, it was West’s speed, timing and movement that allowed her to catch Gladney with a sharp left hook that sent Gladney to the floor 59 seconds into the 7th round. Gladney was up within a few seconds but was waved off by the referee.

West was crafty and sharp, no doubt about it. And Gladney had the kind of power that would have put most any other opponent down. West took those punches well, but I am sure in the coming days she will have a pretty good dose of soreness. All in all both of these women fought well and the crowd, although relatively small, seemed to really enjoy this fight.

During the post fight press conference Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions expressed their interest in continue to use women on their cards. Citing the approaching Olympics in 2012, and the overseas interest in women’s boxing as their motivating factor. Bravo Golden Boy, for being one of the promoting super powers that recognizes the United States Promoters are in fact, behind the times.
