Women's Boxing Rocks at the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas!

(NOV 20) Last night at the Texas Station Casino, in Las Vegas, there were three non-stop action female bouts on the card.  In one of the best action-packed fights Stacey "Stay-Lo" Reile mixed it up for 10 rounds against Dahiana Santana.  The crowd literally went wild while these two exchanged blow after blow.  Santana won the fight by a unanimous decision and became the new IBF world title holder---but both of these fighters were winners for what they did for women's boxing this night.

In another top fight of the night, Ada "The Ace" Velez and Melinda Cooper  took their "grudge" match all the way into the ring.  There was some smack talking going on before the fight at the press conference and weigh-in, but the talk was over and it was all action with these two.  Velez retained her IBF World title belt, after winning by a 10-round majority decision with one judge calling the fight a draw with a 95-95, and the other two judges scoring it for Velez to win.  Cooper was unable to revenge her loss against Velez in their first fight---and after the fight WBAN heard  from reliable sources that Cooper is retiring from boxing.   Velez had sprained her left wrist and had to go to the emergency room after the fight.

In a four-round bout, Tatina Anderson stopped Victoria Cisneros in the third round by TKO.  Anderson was relentless in her attack of Cisneros, and the ref put an end to the fight.

Special guest Sergio Martinez came to the fight and signed autographs for boxing fans, and then he was on the ring apron with the promoter.

Lastly, we had a great number of women boxers come from as far as California to be at the event in support of the women who were fighting on the card---I will be doing a story on these fighters this week as to who attended.

WBAN would like to thank Sampson Boxing for putting on such a stellar show in Vegas.
