Summer DeLeon vs. Sunshine Fettkether

April 26, 2002 at Spa Casino in Palm Springs, California
fight report by Craig O
originally published on the Women's Boxing Page

This was not your typical 4-rounder at the Spa Resort and Casino Friday night.

In a battle between two of the sport’s athletic noblewomen, Summer DeLeon of St. George, Utah and Sunshine Fettkether of Phoenix, Arizona fought to a thrilling four-round draw before a clearly captivated audience in Palm Springs.

Although there were no knockdowns, this was a fast-paced match with solid shots bringing oohs-and-aahs from the crowd and Fettkether mightily trying to overwhelm DeLeon with the sheer force of her assault.

After taking a couple of crisp jabs from DeLeon, Fettkether began pressing the action about 30 seconds into the fight, getting quickly off the mark on many of her attacks, leading with a barrage of punches that backed up DeLeon and trapped her against the ropes.

In the long stretches against the ropes it looked like Fettkether might finish off her opponent but the big bomb never quite connected. DeLeon covered up, seemed to avoid the worst and cautiously (very cautiously!) picked spots to counter, which she did effectively except for the end of Round Three when Fettkether’s attempt to pummel DeLeon into submission in her own corner was only brought to a halt by the bell.

DeLeon, who defeated Fettkether in their first encounter by majority decision last August in Pala, California, was most comfortable when both sides angled for openings, quickly flicking in a left here, a right there. She showed considerable poise and patience weathering Fettkether’s onslaught along the ropes, and managed to consistently score when Fettkether paused in her attack, snapping off quick, stinging counters. The sharpness of her punches cleanly landing in isolation obviously impressed two of the judges enough to offset the blur of action and the greater number of punches when Fettkether was on the attack.

Judges' scores: 39-37 for DeLeon, 39-37 for Fettkether, 38-38 draw.
