After a tentative start by both boxers, it’s Halmich who takes the
initiative. Brown reacts promptly, which leads to some fierce exchanges.
An even round.
Halmich makes the first move most of the time, but Cathy fights more
aggressively, coming in with her head forward and working her opponent’s
body. Halfway through the round, she gets cut on her forehead from an
accidental head-butt. She’s bleeding, but it doesn’t give her much
trouble. She keeps on fighting fiercely and wins this round.
Regina still takes the initiative, but Brown delivers more powerful blows.
At 1’24” in this round, there’s some sensation when a straight right to
the shoulder catches Halmich off balance. She goes down on her back but is
not really affected and still finishes strongly.
At first, the fighters ease the pace, then we get some fierce exchanges
with both fighters landing quite a few heavy blows. An even round.
Regina finally manages to adapt to Cathy’s aggressive style. She keeps
more distance avoiding Cathy’s punches and using her left jab effectively
to win this round.
Halmich clearly dominates this high-paced round throwing nice combinations
and showing superior technical skills. Towards the end Brown retaliates
with several swings and hooks to the face. Nevertheless, Halmich wins this
one on my card.
Brown seems to be running out of steam now. She keeps throwing wild
swings, but mostly misses and wastes a lot of energy. Halmich remains
focussed and is more effective. She wins this round also.
Both fighters are getting tired. Brown keeps attacking occasionally
connecting with a hook or swing.
Some strong attacks from Cathy, but Regina avoids most of her punches and
scores while countering. A close round.
Both ladies make a last effort to impress the judges. They give everything
they got, but they are exhausted and mostly miss their mark.
judges’ decision: Werner Kasimir (Germany):
98-92 ; Guido Cavalleri (Italy): 97-95; Béla Florian (Hungary): 97-94.
would agree with the Italian judge. Brown took the first rounds, but
eventually Halmich’s experience, technical skills and stamina prevailed
over Brown’s courage and superior punching power.
all, it was a good competitive fight between two fit and able ladies who
showed each other a lot of respect.
