November 22, 2010


(OXNARD, CALIF.) – The first-ever Women’s International Dual Series concluded on Saturday with nine bouts of elite amateur boxing action, and U.S. flyweight Alex Love (Monroe, Wash.) saved her best performance for the last night. Love took on 2008 World Champion Karolina Michalczuk of Poland in the final flyweight bout of the event, and refused to be intimidated by her opponent’s resume. The American boxer pulled out a 17-16 decision over Michalczuk as well as the outstanding boxer of the tournament award in her weight division.

A second American flyweight, Cynthia Moreno (Phoenix, Ariz.) kicked off the action with a victory of her own, defeating Spain’s Yasmina Musa Amakhtari, 16-4. Middleweight Lisbet Vargas (Portland, Ore.) started a three bout winning streak for the U.S. squad, claiming a 17-9 decision over Spain’s Tamara Fabiana Garcia Zaragoza in the first middleweight bout of the night. Team USA’s Tyrieshia Douglas (Baltimore, Md.) claimed a third flyweight victory in her contest with Hungary’s Vivien Mizsei by a 20-4 margin in her final contest of the event. U.S. lightweights Stephanie Han (El Paso, Texas) and Queen Underwood (Seattle, Wash.) both closed the event with wins as well, defeating Hungary’s Pikacs Mercedesz and Poland’s Karolina Graczyk to move Team USA’s win total to six on the night

The inaugural Women’s International Dual Series was a great success with all of the participants enjoying a valuable competitive opportunity.USA Boxing Women’s Task Force Chair Christy Halbert was pleased with the event and believes it filled an important role for both the U.S. and foreign competitors. “The international Round Robin was designed to give our U.S. boxers a lot of international experience in a short amount of time,” Halbert said. “Our boxers got to see, first-hand, what's necessary to succeed internationally, and they can build on their knowledge in training. I think the tournament model will serve us well in the future. “

The Oxnard PAL was once again served as a great host for a key USA Boxing event, and provided a welcoming environment for all of the participants. “I was really impressed with the organization of our host, the Oxnard PAL,” Halbert added. “Terrel Harrison, in particular, took a chance on this new tournament model, and he and his staff made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Oxnard put on a first-class international boxing event.”

The United States’ Underwood received the Outstanding Boxer award in the lightweight division with Hungary’s Maria Kovacs taking the middleweight trophy. The squad from Poland won the team award and Dr. Martha Dodson was named the top official at the event.
