(MAY 19) On May 16th, at the Brandenburg Halle, in Frankfurt
Brandenburg, Germany, United States boxer, Melissa "Ponderosa" McMorrow, 111¼, pulled quite an upset when she delivered
Germany's Susi "Killer Queen" Kentikian, 112, her first
professional loss in the ring. According to Boxrec, the title
bout was for three world title belts, the WBO, and WIBF
flyweight titles. McMorrow won by a 10-round majority
decision. Final judges scores were 95-95, 96-94, and 96-94.
McMorrow will add three more belts to her
Kentikian came into
this fight with an impressive and extensive boxing record of
29-0-0 (16KO). McMorrow had only 12 bouts on her record,
speckled with three losses and three draws, at 6-3-3.
But if you know anything about McMorrow, you would know that she
is not too shy about going into another boxers turf and
"Winning", and/or taking on some very tough opposition.
In only her third
fight as a pro, she took on former world champion, Jolene
Blackshear. Some of the women boxers who just "heard"
Blackshear's name would not step in the ring with her. She also
fought other tough opposition, i.e., Suzannah Warner, Eileen
Olszewski, Keisher McLeod Wells, and Arely Mucino in her short
WBAN would like to congratulate McMorrow for her impressive win
