Halmich was the more purposeful fighter from the start. She was beating Blevins to the punch and showing more ability to score successfully to the body.
The impressions gained from the first round were speedily confirmed soon into this one. Halmich was punching purposefully and Blevins was punching more in hope than expectation. It was certainly a purposeful left hook to the jaw that saw Blevins on the receiving end of a well earned standing count.
Blevins was revealing herself as incapable of hurting Halmich who was therefore scoring at will. She staggered Andrea three or four times in this round with crisp jabs and hooks. The German champion was always in charge of the ring and always the aggressor and the American was beginning to look increasingly apprehensive.
Halmich continued to land solidly and nothing came back from Blevins who was now boxing entirely on the retreat.
The German girl came on strong in this round and put Blevins down with a big right hook at 1:05.
She was up at three but was given an eight-count and immediately walked into an avalanche of leather that
backed her into a corner and allowed Halmich to deliver a combination to jaw and ribs at 1:35 that
had her signalling no mas. The referee (Roger Krietz) agreed and called a halt at once.
Many thanks to Jon for writing this report! According to Universum, Regina says after the
fight "In the US there are still interesting opponents for me. Blevins was tough but I landed the harder punches."
