Underhanded? Deliberate? Accidental? A slip of the Pen? You be the judge
by Sue TL Fox
October 10, 2011

     
   
   
   
   

(OCT 10) On October 8, 2011, in Los Cabos, Mexico, there were four women's bouts on the card.  WBAN received photos of each of the pairs of women who would be fighting on this particular card as a courtesy to post information on the weigh-in.  Link to that story


Cara Cabana (pro debut) vs. Maureen Shea
Lets get this right, this time....

As most of you know, WBAN has grown tired of the overused phrase that women boxers used,  "Million Dollar Baby".   

Too many women jumped on that band wagon after the success of the Academy Award winning movie, "Million Dollar Baby" .

Maureen Shea in particular, wore that name like a badge of honor, for years calling herself---- "The REAL Million Dollar Baby." 

Shea was instrumental in working with the main character of that particular movie, Hillary Swank,  to prepare Swank for the role as a female boxer.  So if anyone was entitled to call themselves the Million Dollar baby, it was Shea.

Since that time from about 2005, WBAN has received  countless press releases about Shea and the highly expose ring name she used, "The REAL Million Dollar Baby".

But what was absent this last weekend in Los Cabos  was that NOTHING came up with the Maureen "The REAL Million Dollar Baby" Shea fighting on this card. 

Even though Shea is associated in a highly visible public manner under that name "Maureen "The Real Million Dollar Baby Shea--- as a boxer......WBAN was given a different name of who was fighting. Link to that story

Call it accidental, call it deliberate, call it what you like....You be the judge...

When WBAN received the weigh-in shots from MEXICO, apparently MAUREEN SHEA was fighting under her birth name CARRANZA. 

Who's fault was it?   Hmmm...the promoter got her name wrong from BoxRec?  Hmmm...did the promoter, or matchmaker not know anything about Shea being in Mexico to do a television reality boxing show last year? 

Mistakes...just mere mistakes, I am sure....

On the day of the weigh-in WBAN was given the name  "
Marichia Carranza."  At the time, we did not connect the photo with Shea. 

So folks, JUST TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT---"The REAL Million Dollar Baby"  MAUREEN SHEA, AKA, birth name, Maureen Carranza, 137, NABF champion, now 16-2-0 (10KO), defeated  Yara Cabanas, 136, pro debut, by TKO in the second round.
