(OCT 20) In some of the
latest amateur boxing news in Olympia, Washington, WBAN received
results of two female boxers, Shalynn Holdsworth and Darcie Kaye (Blue Trunks).
father of Shalynn told WBAN, "We again
travelled from Chilliwack BC Canada to Olympia, Washington, to
find competition. Both girls competed in the Showdown In The
South Sound Amateur Championships Oct 13-14 2012.

"Shalynn had two bouts winning her first by unanimous decision
and then winning the second with a second rnd. stoppage. Shalynn
also won her third Most Outstanding Boxer Award. She is now 6 -
0 with 3 stoppages. Shalynn is currently 14 years old, 121 Lb.
"Darcie Kaye, 27
years old, at 135 Lbs., won a unanimous decision
over a taller very game opponent from Portland Oregon coached by
Molly McConnell. Both girls did great. Darcie is currently 3-2
with 2 KO's in the Senior Novice Category".
It is great to see
world champion Molly McConnell, a long-time veteran in the sport
(both as an amateur and now pro) doing great things outside the
ring with amateur boxers.
WBAN had an opportunity to see McConnell in action as a boxing
coach at Lori Steinhorst's Bad Girls Boxing camps and she was
not only a great role model and mentor for the amateurs, but an
excellent boxing coach.
