(AUG 29)  "Mighty" Melissa McMorrow has flown around the world to compete against the best fighters, often in their home country. Recently,  McMorrow again traveled to Ecatepec, Mexico to fight Mexico’s Jessica “Kika” Chavez on August 23, 2014.

 

The headlined event showed McMorrow relentlessly pursuing Chavez landing punches throughout. Chavez attempted to evade McMorrow relying on frequent holds and occasional counterpunches in an
attempt to stave off the advances of McMorrow.

The packed venue was treated to an action packed closely contested match. The resulting scorecards did not reflect McMorrow’s performance, clearly shown across Chavez’s swollen face.

This match was closer than McMorrow’s domination of Mariana ‘La Barby’ Juarez, a fight inexplicably won by the badly beaten Juarez.

  

Chavez fought well, but her performance was far from decisive or unanimous.   As a competitor in Mexico, if the margin of error is so slight for McMorrow, then even a perfect fight wouldn’t result in a win. McMorrow is not only fighting her opponent, but it seems like she is battling the judges as well.

When you include traveling to another country, hostile crowds, unequal weigh-ins, and adjusting to the 8,000 feet of altitude, McMorrow is fighting more than one opponent.

McMorrow commented the following:  “Chavez is a good fighter and we fought a fairly even fight. I think I was the aggressor and
landed the harder cleaner shots. I wanted to make the fight very decisive since I know that the judges will not work in my favor, but she did a good job of keeping her distance from me. However, I think I deserve the decision as much as she does. It is frustrating that when I watch the fight I can only claim rounds that are undeniable and she gets credit for everything else.”

When speaking to McMorrow about whether she plans to return to Mexico, she says the following “It depends on the opportunity. There is not much women’s boxing happening in other parts of the world. I am confident in my fighting ability and I box because I love it. I still welcome all challenges and continue to want to fight the best.”
