Alcivar Cops NY State Title With Win Over Olszewski

(MAR 28) Patty "Boom Boom" Alcivar pounded out an unanimous decision over Eileen Olszewski to win the NY State Women's flyweight title as the main event on Uprising Promotions initial six fight card, Wednesday night, at the Five Star Event Center in Long Island City, Queens, NY, just over the 59th Street Bridge from midtown Manhattan.

Alcivar was the aggressor from the opening bell as the veteran Olszewski, who has been in with the top female flyweights in the sport, attempted to use her formidable ring skills to keep the new titleholder-to be at long range. But, continually throughout the eight rounds, Alcivar found her target with left and right hand flurries of punches. Olszewski had her moments, countering with left hooks and straight right hands throughout the bout, particularly in the second, fifth and eighth rounds. But it was Alcivar who continually dictated the pace of the bout, always coming forward, even undeterred by a cut on her forehead, a result of a clash of heads in the second round. Referee Sparkle Lee called a halt and summoned the ring doctor who, after a close examination of the wound, allowed the bout to continue. Alcivar paid little attention to the abrasion as the fight continued the remaining six rounds.

The NY State flyweight title proved a "launching pad" for current WBO flyweight champ, Melissa McMorrow, who this past weekend, defended her world title with a ten round decision over Nadia Raoui in Germany. Coincidentally, Morrow won the NY title with a close eight round split decision over Olszewski in the self same borough of Queen in June 2011. Alcivar's win was somewhat more decisive, the scoreboards reading 79-73, 78-74, 77-75 and the win would seem to position Alcivar as a future factor in the competitive flyweight class.

In a very. entertaining under-card bout, Canadian Jacqueline Park won a close four round decision over local favorite Susan Reno. Park, with a significant reach advantage, won the first two rounds, keeping Reno on the end of an effective left jab. But the New Yorker, with the crowd standing in support, stormed back, winning the third round by a substantial margin. The final round was two minutes of bell to bell action, give and take rallies from both fighters, with the crowd at a fever pitch. One judge (John Signorile) gave the round to Reno, while the other two arbiters (John McKaie, Robin Taylor) favored Park. A case could be made for all three calls. The final, four round, tally favored Park 39-37 (2x) and 38-38. This was Park's first win as a professional after two losses, while Reno is now 1-1. A third scheduled female bout was dropped from the card when local favorite, Jenifer Santiago's opponent failed the pre-fight physical.

Uprising Promotion's maiden fight card unfurled before a boisterous, SRO crowd at the cozy Five Star venue and seems to portend well for boxing in New York City and, quite possibly, a needed boost for Women's boxing in the biggest market in the country.
