CORA AND DORA WEBBER, were the only set of twins to enter the sport of professional boxing.  Cora Webber, the eldest of the twins began boxing in 1979, while still in her teens.  Dora  began boxing five years later, and quickly became very noted for her skills and abilities.   Cora and Dora did share one thing in common.  Early on in their careers they both had a chance to fight  southpaw Tony Rodriguez, aka Toni Lear. Cora fought Rodriquez in  Ogden, Utah.  She won by an unanimous decision and earned $100 for her efforts.         

When Dora was set to fight Rodriguez at a later date, apparently Rodriguez thought that Cora was pulling some kind of scam, and Dora ended up having to product enough proof that she was actually Cora's twin, before the fight could go on.    Needless to say, Dora knocked Rodriguez out. 

After Cora's first bout with Rodriguez, she was non-stop, winning fight after fight, and even winning the California State Title at one point.

When Cora and Dora had trained in boxing in the earlier years where there were no female sparring partners to box against, she was able to spar with one-time World Welterweight Champion Carlos Palomino, Hector Gomez and other noted fighters.  

Some of the highlights of Cora's career was when she defeated Lady Tyger Trimiar on two occasions.  Cora also fought Bonnie Canino, who she lost to on a split decision.  In 1984, she was World ranked #1 in the Lightweight Division, and she is currently one of the top ranked fighters of today! 

Some of Dora's highlights of her career is fighting against Lucia Rijker, where she lost by a decision, but is one of only a few that have lasted the whole match with such a tough fighter as Rijker.  Dora is one of the true pioneers of professional female boxing.   

On April 3, 1998 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, 19-yr-old lightweight Belinda Laracuente TKO'd Sharon Tiller in the first round. Laracuente's only loss was with Cora Webber at the time. Laracuente has since lost to other boxers.

On February 15, 1998, Dora Webber, 39 years old at the time, 145, Patterson, New Jersey,  lost a controversial split 10-round decision to Gina Guidi, San Leandro, California, 150.  The two were fighting for the IFBA junior middleweight title. Scoring:  Sue TL Fox viewed the fight on tape, and felt that the fight should have gone to Webber. 

On January 10, 1998, at the Tropicana in Atlantic City: IFBA Welterweight champion Russia's Zulfia Koutdoussova, 132,  scored a 10-round unanimous decision over Cora Webber, 128, for the IWBF Lightweight title. 

WBAN has some past footage of Cora Webber fighting a 15-round bout against Laura Holt---what a fight! The fight was non-stop and very impressive.
