McMorrow Split Decisions Olszewski for NY Title
By Bernie McCoy
June 25, 2011

     
   
   
   
   

(JUNE 25) Melissa McMorrow, using her patented aggressive, come forward style, won an eight round split decision over Eileen Olszewski Friday night in the co-feature bout of an eight bout card put together by Old World Boxing and New Legend Promotions at the Cordon Bleu in Woodhaven, Queens, NY. With the win, McMorrow, a Californian from the Bay Area, won the NY State female flyweight title.

The pattern for the bout was established at the opening bell as Olszewski, the current WIBA and GBU flyweight title holder (neither title was on the line Friday), demonstrating her signature fluid motion, attempted to keep McMorrow at the long end of her quick left jabs, while the Californian, moving constantly forward, sought to get inside Olszewski's effective jabs and hooks. Each of the eight rounds seemed, basically, a carbon copy of that strategy. Olszewski would flurry, in the middle of the ring, only to be met with a counter flurry by the hard charging McMorrow who forced the fight into the ropes and corners.

Neither fighter had a "big round" over the eight round course as each stanza was contested in back and forth, bell/bell action that led the pro Olszewski crowd to alternate raucous encouragement and contrasting quiet. What the crowd got was eight rounds of very good boxing. The judges reflected this contrasting viewpoint: John McKaie called the bout 78-74 for McMorrow, Robin Taylor reversed the call with the same score for Olszewski and John Signorile broke the deadlock with a 79-73 count for McMorrow. I had McMorrow winning by a close 77-75 score.

This was McMorrow's second cross country sojourn in four months. In February, she lost a razor thin decision to Keisher McLeod Wells over six rounds at B B Kings Club in midtown Manhattan. With Olszewski and McLeod Wells New York City is now home to two of the top flyweight fighters in Women's boxing to say nothing of boasting an NY State champion residing in the shadow of the Bay Bridge.

With the win McMorrow betters her record to 5-2-3, while Olszewski drops to 7-3-2.
