Ashley Wins WBC Superbantam Title
by Bernie McCoy
July 24, 2011

     
   
   
   
   

(JULY 24) Alicia Ashley, overcoming a slow start, won an unanimous ten round decision over a tough Chistina Ruiz and captured the vacant WBC super bantamweight title. The bout was the co-feature on Joe DeGurardia's initial "KO Cancer" benefit, staged outdoors at the Hunt's Point Produce Market in the South Bronx.

Ashley came to the bout at 120.5, three quarters of a pound less than Ruiz, but the Gleasons Gym based southpaw had a decided height advantage over her San Antonio based foe. Ruiz was clearly the aggressor in the first three rounds while Ashely sought to counterpunch for most of the first six minutes. Among Ashley's many boxing talents is the ability to land telling blows, from her southpaw stance, while going in reverse and, as a result, she prevented the hard charging Ruiz from dominating much of the first three rounds.

Both fighters displayed good ring movement with Ashley's more fluid moves distinctly contrasting with Ruiz' come forward, straight ahead style. Ruiz, through the first half of the bout tried to jab herself inside the long right leads of Ashley as the shorter fighter attempted to trap her taller opponent on the ropes and in the corners.

As the rounds tolled by, Ashley's style proved increasingly more effective as she continually potshoted the always advancing Ruiz.. Ruiz had her moments in several of the middle rounds but those flurries were invariably answered by Ashley. The majority of the middle and late rounds were close, but the final judges' scorecards, 99-91, 98-91 and 100-90 seemed to indicate that most, if not all, of the close calls went to the new champion. I scored the fight 98-93 for Ashley, giving Ruiz the first and third rounds and calling the sixth round even.

Alicia Ashley raised her record to 17-9-1 with her third straight win following a loss to Marcela Acuna in an August 2009 bout for the same title she (Ashley) won last night in the Bronx. Chistina Ruiz, who drops to 6-4-1, was coming off her stunning three round KO of unbeaten Emily Klinefelter in February.

This was the first WBC female title fight in New York in recent, if not distant, memory, and, hopefully, is a portend that the world's largest boxing federation has discovered the country's largest reservoir of female boxing talent. New York based Jill Diamond supervised the bout for the WBC.
