January 18, 2002 - Raleigh, North Carolina
On ESPN2 and in Raleigh, North Carolina, Gina Greenwald, 129.5 lbs., fought out of weight class with 145 lb.  Mia St. John.  Greenwald managed to put on 4 1/2 lbs., and St. John took off eight pounds (since yesterday folks), and the two fought a four rounder. For Greenwald fighting totally out of weight class and being over-matched, she held her own for the duration of the fight, but it was not enough and St. John won by a unanimous decision. Amazing as it may seem, at the end of the fight, St. John said to the TV cameras, "Hey, Christy Martin." It is absolutely obvious, to not only boxing fans, WBAN, and anyone that has 20-20 vision, that St. John should not get within a football field of the "Coal Miner’s Daughter." Fat paycheck or not, this fight would be nothing more than a farce on the public---End of Story. Final scorecards of this fight was 40-35 by all judges. Greenwald fell to 2-6. St. John is now 23-1-1.  This was an unbelievably poor matchup---and there was no honor in defeating a fighter out of weight class, and a fighter with a 2 win record. Shame on the matchmaker(s) of this fight.  Shame on the North Carolina boxing commission for approving the match up. Shame on ESPN2 for even having the fight on their card. Shame on Greenwald’s team for allowing her to fight out of weight class, and lastly, Shame on Mia St. John’s team for taking advantage of an inferior and out-of-weight-class opponent.  Sue TL Fox 01/18/02

January 17, 2002 - Michael's Eighth Avenue, Glen Burnie, MD
Kanicia Eley,  TKO1 Connie Bechtel.   During the first round of this rematch, Kanicia hit Connie with a variety of punches including a right hand that sent Connie reeling to the ropes. Referee Kenny Chevalier stopped the fight 1:59 of the first round.  Kanicia is now 2-0-0 with one KO. Eley's team said, "She would love to fight any of the fighters that keep calling out "the lady in pink". Lets see if Mia or Olga (Vlasova) can get by Kanicia before tying to get to the top fighters.

January 17, 2002 - Bakersfield, California
At the Centennial Garden  in the semi-main event, Fresno's Jenifer Alcorn, 133 3/4 lbs., fought a Lightweight six-rounder with Lisa Lewis, 133, and won by a unanimous decision.  Alcorn remains undefeated with her record improving to 11-0.  Lewis is now(2-5). Craig Ogawa said, "unbeaten lightweight Jennifer Alcorn of Fresno, California defeated crosstown rival Lisa Lewis by unanimous decision in a match which drew a standing ovation from the crowd. There were no knockdowns though the fight seemed close to ending when Alcorn unleashed a stunning barrage of punishing shots that lasted the entire 2nd round." (Final scorecards:  59-55, 59-55, 60-54.)  Ogawa said that there was some pre-fight talk in the media about a grudge between the two women that my have been a bit of media hype.  Ogawa said that according to Alcorn's husband, Brad, that the "prediction" was misquoted, and that what she actually said was that she goes for a knockout.  Brad said, "As a team, we train for a knockout. We don't want it to go to the judges."

January 13, 2002 - Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada
With close to a full crowd, Alicia Ashley had a six- round draw with Layla McCarter in the 126 lbs. division.   There were no knockdowns, and throughout the fight Ashley had some good combination exchanges.  Ashley's being a southpaw made the fight look a little awkward at times.  

January 12, 2002 -Laughlin, Nevada
Dawn Reynolds won a four-round unanimous decision over Brandy Leon. Reynolds improved her record to 3-0-0 (0KO), and Leon has dropped to 1-6-9.  

January 11, 2002 - Amateur Boxing- Wisconsin
When friends fight someone always comes in second. And second in a boxing match means a loss. This was the case at the USA - Wisconsin Amateur Boxing Championship preliminaries Friday, Jan. 11, at the United Community Center, 1028 S. Ninth Street, Milwaukee, when Alicia Walcher, 14, 109, 0-0, of Peshtigo Boxing Club, faced her friend and teammate 14-year-old Crystal Willis, 108, 1-2, also of the Peshtigo club. Give Walcher a big hand, though: She had been boxing just one week but wanted to take the bout so badly that her coach Willy Price agreed to let her box against the more practiced Willis for the ring experience.
