Kuhn decisions Irizarry

(JUNE 17) Sarah Kuhn, 144.5, Albany, ranked #12 by BoxRec, added a respectable name to her win column by scoring a majority decision over Adelita Irizarry, 145, Hartford, ranked #7 by BoxRec, in a closely contested six round bout at Ares Promotions Fight Night IX.

It was a tale of two fights. Kuhn, who needs room to punch, fought well off of her back foot and connected with stiff jabs and right crosses from long range in rounds one, four, and five. Kuhn evaded Irizarry’s attacks by moving away forcing the slower footed Irizarry to follow her.

Irizarry, who needs to set her feet to punch, crowded Kuhn and scored well with power punches in rounds three and six. Round two was the key to the fight. In the early stages of the second round, with momentum from her success in round one, Kuhn scored well with her two-fisted attack from long range. The second portion of the round, especially the last ten seconds, belonged to Irizarry who smothered Kuhn in the corners and on the ropes giving more than she received.

In the end, two of the assigned judges scored for Kuhn 58-56. The single holdout had it even at 57-57. This author scored 58-57 for Kuhn. With the win, Sarah Kuhn raises her record to 5-2-1 whereas Adelita Irizarry drops to a deceiving 8-6 with the loss.

NOTE: This was the best received fight of the night by the nearly 2,000 boxing fans gathered at the Empire State Plaza in downtown Albany. Irizarry had an estimated fifty followers all the way from Hartford loudly applauding her efforts. As loud as Irizarry’s fans were, they were generally drowned out by those who came to see the hometown fighter.

‘Downtown’ Leona Brown, the former IFBA super bantamweight, and WIBC bantamweight champion mingled with the crowd at ringside.
