McLeod-Wells, Alcivar Light Up Times Square
by Bernie McCoy

(MAR 8)  Keisher McLeod-Wells and Patty Alcivar, two of the treasure trove of New York female boxers staged a six round testament to just how good their sport can be when the right fighters are matched by the right promoter. McLeod-Wells/Alcivar was a feature attraction in a nine bout card presented by Dibella Entertainment at a sold out BB Kings Blues Club in the heart of Times Square. The six round bout featured bell/bell action which had the already raucous crowd on their feet for every round.

McLeod-Wells used her height advantage in an attempt to keep the aggressive Alcivar at left jab length with mixed result over the six rounds. In the fourth round, the taller boxer sent Alcivar to the canvas with a stiff left, catching Alcivar moving backwards for one of the few times in the bout.

Alcivar returned the favor in the final round with a looping left hand that deposited McLeod-Wells in the middle of the ring. Neither of the offsetting knockdowns did much damage to the fighters, save on the judge's scorecards and both fighters rallied strongly after suffering the knockdown. But the bookend knockdowns were perfectly emblematic of just how well matched these two fighters were.

All three scorecards ratified that view. All three judges scored the bout with the identical razor thin tally, 57-55. Steve Weisfeld voted Alcivar, while Carlos Ortiz and Julie Lederman gave the nod to McLeod-Wells. It was up to the promoter, Joe Dibella to render the best decision of the night, when it was announced, in the middle of the ring, in following the decision, that a rematch would be immediately sought. The packed house, which had reacted with mixed emotions to the decision, were unanimous in their approval of Dibella's announcement. The return bout is deserving of a title belt.

Wells-McLeod raised her record to 5-2, while Alcivar suffered her first loss as a professional, going to 5-1, while both fighters established themselves as major factors in the flyweight division.
