Alisah McPhee and Peggy Maerz Proved most Exciting Bout on Undercard!
Photos and Story

July 20, 2014


(JULY 20) The women’s bantam weight bout pitting Alisah McPhee against Peggy Maerz proved to be the most exciting bout on the undercard of the Strawson Boxing promotion at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo BC on Friday July 18th. The fight was an interesting match up of power, which Maerz embodied, and quickness and accuracy, seen in McPhee’s punches. The momentum shifted between the two women throughout the six round bout, and as both women are British Columbia residents, the crowd was split in their support.

The women took little time to assess the other and instead jumped right in to firing the jab and looking for an opening to the other’s head. Both of them landed jabs, but it was Maerz who was able to take advantage of opportunities to land her right. Maerz’s target early was McPhee’s body, and that meant she had to stand in close.

The close infighting provided McPhee with openings to shoot her quick compact left, targeting Maerz’s ribs. The second round was also close, but the difference in the women’s style and tactics became more evident. Maerz was going to rely on the power behind an overhand right. McPhee pumped her jab to keep Maerz from stepping too close, and McPhee began to follow the jab with right hooks to the body.

The sound of the crowd swelled entering the third round as they sensed this was not going to be a walk over for either woman. Maerz settled a bit and rather than trying to jump in on McPhee, she went back to shooting her jab while stepping in and then loading up to follow it with her right hand. Maerz divided scoring punches between McPhee’s head and body.

McPhee began to effectively counter punch Maerz, and when the Maerz’s overhand right exposed her ribs, McPhee shot and landed her left. In the fourth round the women returned to the strength of their style. Maerz landed her powerful right hand, often to McPhee’s chin. McPhee, while she took a few punches, relied on her quickness to jump in, shoot a combination, and then move out of trouble.

Perhaps sensing that McPhee might have gained a slight edge in the middle rounds, Maerz threw almost exclusively right hand power shots to open the fifth. She landed many and that forced McPhee to back off a bit. That however also worked to McPhee’s advantage as she was able create enough distance to stay out of range of Maerz’s power, while creating space to throw the jab and follow it with her right. Maerz closed the round with a return to her power. The final round was a showcase of power against speed. Both women were effective, both landed shots and both were on the receiving end of punches.

After six exciting rounds of boxing, one judge scored the bout 58-58 for Maerz; the other two scored it 58-56 for McPhee. Alisah McPhee would claim the split decision victory for her third win overall.
