The Jury is in: Zamora was Ripped Off!

(JUNE 6) On Monday, WBAN ran a story, that had the complete 10-round video fight of the Irma Sanchez vs. Ibeth Zamora that took place in Mexico on Saturday.  WBAN decided to let the boxing community give their own thoughts of the fight after we posted the 10-rounder on the site.  The fight reports and comments are in and this is what was said: 

Did Zamora Get Ripped in fight with Sanchez? You be the Judge! link

Coach Lee Shabaka

First off,  let me first say that this was one heck of a fight...One of the best 10 round Women's bouts that I've seen in a while.   Both fighters should be  commended on an excellent job, both women were very skillful with tons of  guts. With that said,  I'm gonna have to go with Zamora. She is an effective pressure fighter and in this fight she outworked Sanchez. Sanchez did a good job trying to box Zamora and counter-punch but I still feel that Zamora pulled it off.  These two should meet again for a rematch.


Harold D.

After viewing the ten-round match between Sanchez and Zamora,  I definitely feel as though "La Roca" Zamora should have won the decision. I would have scored the fight eight-rounds for Zamora, One round Sanchez and one round even. Throughout the match Zamora threw punches in punches, landing far more than her opponent who was throwing arm punches and clinching consistently throughout the ten rounds. It was a very exciting fight to
watch, but the decision was blatantly unfair.

Morty D.

Sanchez may have won the second round, however, I had it a shutout for Ibeth Zamora Silva. Just a ridiculous decision-----Sanchez tried her best, but Zamora Silva was overwhelming.

These crowds, promoters, etc, make a prize fight into a nationalistic war . They viewed this [sell it may be a better expression] as Mexico vs Argentina. This is true throughout the boxing world, this fight happened to be in Mexico . Whether its Germany, Argentina, Uruguay, etc, these terrible decisions spoil the sport . It would be great if we could get more neutral venues .

For some stupid reason, the US media refuses to give women's boxing its due. The fights are very entertaining & the women fighters deserve better!


Melissa McMorrow

I think Silva slugged this one out and had the better of the exchanges. I felt the same way about my fight with Mucino. I think a rematch is in order in both cases, then the winner of both should fight. I would like some new belts to add to my collection.


Nick R.

YUP, ripped off big time. However I gotta give big marks to Sanchez.  She got hit everywhere and with everything and was still standing after 10.  I thought any minute she would go down.  If she had gone down it would have been all over very quickly.  My call, Zamora by a landslide.

Andrew Stanley-Coker

This is a lesson to boxers. Sometimes you need a knockout to put the issue to bed once and for all. Never leave decisions to the judges, my verdict Zamora won by unanimous decision. She threw more leather than Sanchez, connected more whilst Sanchez resorted to clinching and failed to connect with any of her town. A rematch is needed and preferably at a neutral venue.


Comments on the Internet

On the net we found many comments and "every comment" made was in favor of Zamora, from boxing fans who said that Zamora threw the most accurate punches out of the two, to point blank stating that Zamora was ripped off and/or "robbed".
