Alicia Ashley: Winning at Top Speed
Taking control in the second round, Alicia Ashley won an unanimous eight round decision over a determined, but outclassed, Crystal Hoy in a super featherweight bout at the top of a fast paced five bout card, Wednesday night, promoted by Maureen Shea's Pandora Promotions in association with Global Boxing, at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple in the Fort Greene section of the borough.
 
Hoy and Ashley, at matching weights of 121, came out firing in the first round with Hoy's aggressive pursuit of the quicker Ashley earning her the nod on the cards of two of the three judges. From that point on, however, the night's main event took on a familiar, almost metronomic, pattern for the next seven rounds.

 
Ashley, fighting from her customary southpaw stance and utilizing both her hand and foot speed, potshotted Hoy with solid lead right jabs and straight lefts, moving in and out against her slower opponent. (It should be stipulated here that being described as slower, in the ring, than Alicia Ashley is a label that covers the vast majority of female bantam and featherweight fighters in the sport.)
 
To this strategy Ashley added her uncanny ability to land effective punches, with both hands, while on the move, side/side and, most uniquely, moving backwards. The tactics caused Hoy, who remained, come-forward aggressive throughout the bout, to try, but, frustratingly, fail to trap the elusive Ashley against the ropes or in the corners. The eighth round differed from rounds two through seven only in the fact that Ashley scored a flash knockdown in the first minute of the stanza, making it a 10-8 round and breaking a string of 10-9 tallies for the winner. Judge Robert Taylor saw the fight 80-71, giving all eight rounds to Ashley, while judges Luis Rivera and Robert Perez concurred on a 79-72 count.
 
The forty-three year old Ashley moved her record to 16-9-1 while positioning herself squarely in line for another shot at the WBC super bantamweight title which she lost, on a razor thin decision, to Marcela Acuna in August 2009, in Argentina. The thoroughly game Hoy, who turned in a never-stop-trying effort against one of the elite boxers in the sport, fell to 5-4-3.
