December 24, 2005 - Kenya International Conference Centre, in
Nairobi, Kenya In another questionable World title bout that took place in 2005,
Conjestina Achieng won the vacant WBF middleweight world title
against winless Argentinean Guillermina Fernandez. Fernandez
came into the world title bout, with a 0-3-0 record, listed as a
"welterweight", not middleweight in any of her previous bouts. (Both
Boxrec.com and WBAN's records had her with no wins on her record).
Fernandez is not ranked with WBAN, IFBA, WBC, WIBA, and it can be
safely assumed not any other credible organization. In this obvious
mismatch, Achieng stopped Fernandez 1:42 seconds in the first round
of a scheduled 10 round bout. Fernandez had been stopped twice in
her three previous losses from her past fights. It was reported in
the local news sources that boxing fans, who had turned up early for
the event, ended up waiting four hours before the event took place.
Apparently it was a “purse” issue that needed to be resolved when
the promoter had not paid the boxers. Another news source reported
that Achieng and Fernandez had refused to go to the fight venue
before receiving their fee from promoters Solid Rock Promotions.
They were paid $5,000 each. One reporter describing the brief
one-round bout said, “Kenya's Conjestina Achieng drove her fans into
ecstacy with her electrifying first round demolition job on
Argentina's Giullermina Fernandez.” That is a pretty good
description of a non-competitive mismatch.

In front of a sell-out 10,000 crowd, United States Laila "She Bee
Stingin" Ali, 169.5, defeated Asa Sandell, 166.5,
of Sweden, 1:51 seconds, of the fifth round by TKO. Sandell
had look stunned after a hard right 90 seconds into the fifth round.
Ali took advantage of that opportunity, and threw a barrage of
combinations, backing Sandell up against the ropes, and peppering
her with more quick combos. Sandell looked out of breath and
failed to defend herself, so the referee stopped the fight. The
fight was delayed by about 30 minutes, awaiting the arrival of
Muhammad Ali. Laila Ali had announced, that she would not enter the
ring until her father was seated at ringside. Also, tonight the
United Nations Association of Germany (DGVN) presented Muhammad Ali
with the prestigious Otto Hahn peace medal for his lifelong
engagement in the American civil rights movement as well as his
activities as a UN goodwill ambassador. After the fight Ali
said, “I expected the fight to be a little tougher than usual
because she was a tall opponent and she was a tough fighter. And I
felt like they stopped the fight too soon. I was a little
disappointed at the stoppage because I didn’t think that she was
ready to go yet. I wanted to put her out. She was on her way there.
I had a game plan, I was working my way to her, and I started to get
closer and closer, and I finally turned up the heat and they stopped
the fight. It’s happened to me before. You know what I mean? These
referees for women, for some reason, they don’t want to see ‘em get
hurt. But, I have to give her her props; she did very well." Round by

December 12, 2005 - Kansas Expo Center - Topeka, KS Dawn Ramey, 114, 1-0-1, fought on the undercard
against Claudia O’Brian, 122, in what was “supposed” to be a four round
bout. This fight was declared a "no contest".
Check out story that occurred in this odd-ball match:
WBAN received information from an "insider" who was at the event,
tell WBAN the following (excerpt): “Last night I witnessed an
injustice to Women's Boxing. Aaron Davis, the first Kansas Commissioner,
has seemed to make up his own rules for professional women’s boxing. At
the Kansas Expo Center in Topeka, Danger Fire Promotions, there was a
female fight scheduled for four rounds. ( O’Brian, pro debut, vs.Ramey).
At the beginning of the third round bell, (neither fighter injured) the
referee, Raul Guaverra, stated it was only scheduled as a two round
fight. Aaron Davis, the first Kansas Commissioner, agreed, even
after both promoters Craig Cummings and Brian Reed jumped up to dispute.
Davis ruled the fight a unanimous decision after two rounds. With much
confusion, both women protesting, they went to their lockers-----removed
their gear, handwraps and changed. After a significant delay, Davis
decided that they could continue the two rounds. He asked both women, to
get ready and go out for two more rounds. Davis said, if they did not it
would be considered a TKO on the record.”
After receiving this information, WBAN contacted Brian Reed, of Danger
Fire Promotions by phone, and he confirmed that this incident had indeed
Reed told WBAN, “It would be an injustice to both fighters, and all

December 5, 2005 - Highland, California
With only a four-day notice, Lisa Holewyne packed her bags,
flew to Southern California and fought Martha Deitchman
(2-8-1) who out-weighed her in a six round fight. It was still a
dominating performance for the native Texan. Holewyne, an
elite welterweight title-holder, bore through Deitchman’s defense in
workmanlike fashion and a two-fisted assault over six rounds at the
San Manuel Casino before scoring a technical knockout. It was the
first pro fight card ever held in the popular casino.
“She was a scrapper,” said Holewyne, who didn’t
lose a round to the hard-nosed Deitchman from Denver. “I don’t think
she has ever been knocked out before.” From the first round
Holewyne’s experience and skill immediately proved the difference
between the pair. But Deitchman’s ability to take a punch and her
uncanny ability to parry blows while moving away saved her through
most of the fight. A double left hook in the sixth and final
round enabled Holewyne to fire more combinations and force Deitchman
to the ropes. She couldn’t escape. Referee David Denkins stopped the
fight at 1:40 in the sixth.
Holewyne accepted the fight despite a large weight advantage and
Deitchman’s experience as a survivor. Though the Colorado fighter
did not win a round, she managed some clever counter-punches
throughout the fight. It just wasn’t enough.
A native of Houston, Texas, Holewyne said the end is near for her
career. But first she wants to remedy some dark moments from the
past. “I want to fight Shelly Burton again,” said Holewyne,
who is the WIBF welterweight title-holder, and plans to meet Mary Jo
Sanders in a rematch. “I’ve fought the best and I’d like to fight
Mary Jo Sanders again. She’s really good. That’s what I want first.”
Sanders is scheduled to meet Holewyne on Dec. 17 at the Auburn
Holewyne, whose record involves bouts with a Who’s Who of women
boxing such as Christy Martin, Layla McCarter and Summer Fettkether
to name a few, fancies her two bouts against Sumya Anani as a test
of her will. “In the first fight with Sumya Anani I didn’t
last,” Holewyne said of the first fight that took place in 2002 .
“But in the second fight I went the distance with a fighter I
consider the best. Her and Mary Jo Sanders are the best out there.
And that’s who I’d like to fight.”
Now nearing 40, Holewyne does not plan many more fights in 2006.
“I’m a world champion,” she said. “I’m going to give Mary Jo Sanders

Lamare, now 11-0-0 (6KO), of France, fought England's Jane
Couch for the Vacant WIBF Junior Welterweight and WBA Junior
Welterweight title. Ewan Whyte told WBAN, that after a
rollicking from Lamare's trainer for going backwards and letting
Couch take the initiative in the first round, Lamare stood her
ground in the second and third and muscled it out with her. Very
quickly her class began to tell, and she got the upper hand ("Elle
est la patronne C'est sur!" ("She's the boss. There's no doubt about
it!") said the summarizer. Whyte said, "As is usually the case in
Europe, there was one commentator who was media friendly (a TV
professional) and another who actually knew the sport:
Commentator A (talking about Couch's record and her ruggedness)
: "It's going to be complicated" Commentator B
(firmly). "No. Myriam's more precise, she's more complete, she's
more versatile, she's stronger, she's younger, and she's the
champion. It all adds up..." And just at that moment it did: Lamare
landed a right cross and began to open up. Within 10 to 15 seconds
she had Couch flat-footed and staggering in the centre of the ring.
To me (and obviously to the referee as well) it looked as though
Couch was about to get hurt - perhaps quite badly -- she has this
bullock-like strength, Lamare -- but at the actual moment the
referee stopped the fight, Couch appeared to be regrouping and there
were only 7 seconds to go to the bell, so she was very angry with
the stoppage. Someone explained that the referee did not have the
option of giving Couch a standing 8 count and he obviously was not
prepared to take the risk of letting it continue.

Record Member's photo gallery #310 Login Rita Figueroa threw the harder
punches against a very active Mercedes Mercury in garnering a
unanimous decision over her fiesty opponent. Round one, Mercury boxed with a frenetic
nervous energy as Figueroa stalked. The busier fighter, she peppered
Figueroa about the head with both fists. Figueroa drilled her in a
corner with a right hand, but Mercury escaped and boxed. Figueroa
bounced a pair of heavy rights to the head on the ropes and, again,
Mercury escaped. In round two, Figueroa found her range
and began connecting with jabs, rights and lefts with increasing
frequency as Mercury circled and punched in bunches.
In round three, Figueroa appeared to rock
Mercury momentarily with two jarring rights to the head on the ropes.
Another right snapped Mercury’s head back. A left snapped her head to
the left. However, Mercury kept both fists pumping and the two slugged
it out on the ropes, then in a nearby corner at rounds end. In round four, Mercury resumed her
frenetic pace, bouncing herky-jerkily and flurrying as Rita committed
power more behind her punches. Sitting down more on her punches, Mercury
made more of a war of it as the two traded toe-to-toe at rounds end. All three judges scored the bout
identically at 39-37 for Rita Figueroa. Afterwards, Figueroa said of Mercury,
“Tough girl, tough girl! She can fight!”Figueroa, 5-0-0, 2 KO's weighed 133.5
