Just In!  Results are in from Trinidad And Tobago

(JULY 30) Last night on the "Night of Champions" card,  at the Jean Pierre Sports Complex, in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad And Tobago, Ria Ramnarine, 32, 106, from Trinidad,  lost a 10-round unanimous decision to Russian boxer Anastasia Toktaulova, 34, 106.

WBAN was told by our correspondent that the fight was close, with Ramnarine appearing to bring the fight to Toktaulova.  Toktaulova moved nicely in the ring, but Ramnarine reportedly being more aggressive in the bout. Regardless, the judges saw the fight go to the Russian in this particular bout.

One observation of the fight, was that Toktaulova, a much shorter boxer than Ramnarine seem to find her way into some repeated headbutting----which is unknown if that was because of the height difference or maybe happening a little too much to be a mere coincidence.  

We were also told that some of the fans who had come to see this bout were not happy with the decision. 

The two were fighting for the two titled belts. One belt was for the WBC 108 lbs. "International" belt.

Bonnie Canino told WBAN, "Last night both girls Ria Ramnarine and Anastasia Toktaulova took it in the ring. It was an upset with Ramnarine camp thinking they did enough to win the fight. But the judges gave the fight to Anastasia. She was surprised and happy for the victory. Well fought fight from both boxers. Ramnarine is looking to rematch her as soon as possible. It was filmed for television which should be broadcast in the next couple of weeks."

In a second women's title bout for the vacant WBC middleweight world title, another upset, when Lorissa Rivas, 156, of Las Vegas, Nevada (and Trinidad), lost a split decision to Tori Nelson, 154.

In this fight, Nelson stood her ground throughout the bout, and somewhat took the fight to Lorissa in a "Joe Frasier" style.  Nelson absolutely came to fight this night---giving it everything she had in the ring. 

One comment that seem to echo at the event with some of the people in attendance though was the fact that why were these two fighting for a title in the first place.  With one fighter having a 4-1 record and the other 3-1, to get a WBC World title?

[Nelson is rated #3 with WBC, Middleweight, and Rivas is rated #6 with WBC, Middleweight]

Our correspondent said, "Isn't that taking away from what a world champion really is?  Isn't that an insult to the girls who really work their way up and fight tooth and nail to get a title shot?  I must be honest with you....I'm losing my respect for it all."
