(SEPT 8) On Thursday night at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, promoted by Bobby D Presents, had five exciting bouts on the card, with three of those fights featuring women in the ring!

In the mainliner, two-time world champion Jolene “Classy Assassin” Blackshear, 108, of San Diego, faced Susan Reno, 108, of New York in a scheduled six rounder. Blackshear made it a short night though, stopping Reno in the first round.

In the co-main, in an eight-round bout, Kenia Enriquez, of Tijuana, Mexico, faced a strong opponent that has a deceptive record Mayela "La Cobrita" Perez, of Saltillo, Mexico. In the first few rounds, both boxers exchanged a barrage of combinations and the fight was fairly close---but in the later rounds, Enriquez began to move quicker, and agile, and began to gain on her veteran opponent. Enriquez remained undefeated winning by a unanimous decision. Final judges scores were 80-72 on all cards.

In the second featured bout of the evening, in a four-round bout, with the weight set at 131.5, Haley Pasion, 124.5, of Hawaii, fought Jillian Lybarger, 132.5, of Goodyear, Arizona. The fight ended in a majority decision in favor of Pasion. Both Pasion and Lybarger would making their pro debut. Final judges scores were 38-38, 39-37, 40-36.

Also on the card there were two men's bouts. In one bout, Miguel "Zurdo" Sanchez, of San Diego, won by a third round TKO over Ivan "Oso" Zavala, of Tijuana, Mexico. The fight was scheduled for six rounds. Zavala had injured his hand in the second round, and by the third round could not continue due to the injury.

In the first bout of the evening, in a scheduled four round super bantamweight bout, Mulapi "African Assassin" Enjani, of San Diego, faced Juan Urbina, of Los Angeles, CA, making his pro debut. Enjani won by a decision.

Jim Wyatt could not have said it better when he said, "Dangerous Divas proved to be an important platform for women’s boxing and San Diego as a city as six brave women stepped into the ring to cement their careers, continue on the path to stardom, and for two fighters, enter the ring as professional fighters for the first time. For local fighter and headliner, Jolene Blackshear, the opportunity to fight in her hometown in front of her family and friends proved to be special."

At the intermission the boxing fans were treated to seeing many of the talented boxers and more enter the ring and be introduced. The special tribute featured the following in the ring...local talent Brandon “Cannon” Adams; Leon Spinks III; former world champion Jesus Calud; Amaris “Diamond Girl” Quintana; “Body Issue” participant Danyelle Wolf; Del Pettis, an 1980's Pioneer boxer from the past.
