  Punchers Chance
By Bernie McCoy
April 13, 2004

(APR 13) One of the great things about sports is that's its a part of life where "you can do something about yesterday, tomorrow". This is especially true of boxing, the most redemptive of sports; boxing can change from bout to bout, round to round, punch to punch....a fighter is deemed to always have a "puncher's chance". The fact is, in boxing, you just have to keep punching. Full Story

Huge Photo Gallery on the WBAN Records Members site, gallery #161

(APR 12) On Saturday evening (April 10) at the MEN Arena, in Manchester,  Agnieszka Rylik of Polish Boxing Promotion fought American Eliza Olson.  The women boxers fought for both the  vacant WIBO Junior Welterweight world title and Rylik's WIBF junior welterweight title. The bout was qualitative and balanced as well. Rylik's jabs were dominating the match but the Olson was better in in close fighting and her uppercuts were very dangerous. At the beginning of the match,  Rylik was dominant,  however in the middle of the fight Olson, succeeded in taking charge. In the end Rylik was able to take on the match again because of her stamina. When the fight ended, both boxers believed to be the winner. On the cards Rylik was the victorious (98-94, 98-94, and 97-94) however in my opinion 97-94 was the most objective.


Thank You - From The Island Girl - Sumya Anani
April 12, 2004

(APR 12) I would like to thank all the WBAN viewers that commented on the previous challenge that I sent out to Lucia Rijker.  I appreciated all the comments!  Layla M., I am sorry that your fight with Rijker did not happen after you being offered to fight her.  Unfortunately, you’re not the first.  Lisa H., my mentioning that I already beat you was not meant to be disrespectful to you.  I was merely stating a fact.  You’ve earned a rematch with me……win, lose, or draw with Rijker.  I will give anyone a rematch.  Good luck on the 24th.  The fans……as always, I value your opinions and your feedback so much.  I, too, would love it if all we fighters had to do was do our talking in the ring with our fists.  But if I can’t even get in the ring to do that, I’m left to making an open challenge. No disrespect, no ego involved…just a chance to determine who is the legitimate 140 lb. Champ.  If we ever want HBO to show women’s fights, this is what needs to happen to legitimize women's boxing.  UNIFICATIONS.  UNIFICATIONS.  UNIFICATIONS.
