Liz Mueller vs. Jane Couch

August 19, 2000 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut
fight report by Brian Macy
originally published on the Women's Boxing Page

On August 19, 2000 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut, Liz Mueller (133 lbs) of New London, Connecticut won a six-round unanimous decision (59-55 on all three cards) over Jane Couch (134 lbs) of Fleetwood, U.K., the current WBF Women's Lightweight champion. Mueller improved her record to  5-0; Couch (who reportedly took the fight at about 10 days' notice) fell to 13-3. I received this ringside report from Brian Macy on the night of the fight ...

The opening fight of the Naseem Hamed vs Augie Sanchez card, Liz Mueller squared off against Britain's Jane Couch. Mueller came in with a 4-0 record against Jane Couch's 13-2. Couch the more experienced fighter was quoted as calling Mueller a "novice" in the local paper. Couch, coming off wins against Sharon Anyos and Marischa Sjauw, looked more than ready for a six-rounder after going 10 or 12 in her last fights.

Both fighters looked in shape and ready to go as Round One was underway. The first round was a feeling out process as Mueller moved her head effectively and Couch threw steady one- two's. At the close of the round Couch looked like she took it because of her activity, but it was plain to see she was not fighting a novice.

The second round started out like the first with Mueller moving her head, but as the round wore on Mueller started coming up with left hooks and slowly started catching Couch from all angles. Couch steadily pumped out her jab/right-hand combination, but she was not able to prevent Mueller's hooks and right hands from the crouch.

In Round Three, Mueller stepped up the attack and kept an even tempo of slipping punches and landing combinations. Couch fought in a way like the typical European fighter and stood too straight up.

In Round Four a lesser woman would have stayed on the stool but Jane Couch came out fighting. She landed some good right hands when Mueller was coming in and kept throwing the whole round. The problem was, the right hands did not keep Mueller off at all as she continued the assault on Couch. Mueller constantly was in between moving her head and firing hooks and right hands.

Rounds Five and Six continued the same way with Mueller controlling the tempo and winning the exchanges. Couch to her credit landed good one-twos, she just did not have the pop to keep Mueller off.

The score was unanimous, all the judges having it 59 to 55 for Mueller. The general consensus in the press was the same. I personally had the same exact score.

It was understandable for Couch to think she was just fighting a novice , but Liz Mueller's vast amateur experience and four pro fights were more than enough to get her ready for the top women.

Jane Couch lost this one but will surely be back in the mix soon.

This was a coming out party for Liz Mueller and with her speed and head movement I expect a lot in the future. Mueller and her management are hoping for a December date against Marischa Sjauw at Foxwoods.

Brian Macy is the son of Liz Mueller's trainer Andy Macy.  At the time of writing this report, he was a 17 yr. old with 75 amateur fights, and had competed in Junior Olympics, National youth Police Athletic League and National under 19 events. He had assisted the local newspaper in fight coverage and authored fight stories for his High School paper. Although he was clearly not an unbiased observer of Liz Mueller's career, I felt this was a fair  report of this fight ... Dee
