MAY 2006

 May 27, 2006 - Louisville Gardens, Louisville, Kentucky
Behind the Scenes Photo Gallery #363
Terri ‘Road Warrior’ Blair came home for the sweetest of homecomings, when she successfully defended her IBA welterweight title against Sumya "The Island Girl" Anani.  This was a rematch for Blair and Anani, when Blair had won in a stunning tenth round TKO of Anani two months earlier in Indiana---a neutral venue for both boxers. In that first fight with Anani, some may have thought Blair's win was a fluke.  However, Blair proved in front of her family, friends, and all that attended this night, that it wasn’t a fluke at all – not by a long shot--- when she knocked Anani down, not once or twice, but four times, once in the fifth round and three times in the ninth round, before referee Bobby Dixon stopped the contest with one second left in the round.  Weights:  Blair, 141 - Anani - 143.  Full Report by Longjab

May 26, 2006, Auditorio Enrique Batiz in Cuatlitlán Izcalli (Mexico State)  Report by Ewan Whyte
Fredee González managed to do enough on Friday evening to prevent "The She-Wolf", Zulina ("La Loba") Muñoz, scoring her eighth consecutive KO – without, however, doing anything very much to establish a rival claim to the NABF bantamweight title they were disputing. It was an attractive fight, according to Jesús López of Box Latino, that topped the bill at the Auditorio Enrique Batiz in Cuatlitlán Izcalli, and whilst he doesn't give the scores, we can take it from his report that Muñoz won by a comfortable margin. After taking something of a hammering in the first three rounds, in which she was caught frequently with solid straight lefts and powerful right hooks to the head, and almost going to the canvas in the fourth, González rallied bravely in the fifth, managing to frustrate the 19-year-old champion by fighting at short- to medium-range and denying her the space to deliver either the left hook with which she knocked out Beatriz Martínez in her penultimate encounter or the right cross that (effectively) won her the title last month. González had vowed she would take home the title to Querétaro "or die in the attempt"; and now, with her young opponent under pressure for the first time in five rounds, was the moment to seize the initiative and turn the fight around; but when push came to shove, it was Muñoz that proved the stronger – the stronger physically and the stronger-willed – and as the champion regained the upper hand and began mixing in shots to the body with blows to the head, implacable in search of the KO, González was relegated – and seemed to accept her relegation – from the role of challenger to that of prey, whose only objective was to survive, and who would happily cast off her unbeaten record, her title ambitions, and even her credibility, if only (please God!) she were allowed to remain on her feet until the end.

May 20, 2006 - Mexico (Report by Ewan Whyte)
Despite an exhausting journey from Córdoba in central Argentina to the northernmost tip of Mexico earlier in the week that included stops in Santiago, Lima and Mexico City and which she admitted had left her drained, Alejandra 'La Locomotora' Oliveras found the means last night – just when her own strength seemed to be failing and the champion (spurred on by chants of 'Mexico! Mexico!') seemed to be rallying in a last desperate attempt to recover lost ground – to wrest the WBC Super Bantamweight belt from the hands of Jackie 'The Aztec Princess' Nava : a devastating left hook that spun the champion through 180 degrees and sent her crashing to the canvas 1 minute and 47 seconds into the eighth round. As the champion lay hurt on the canvas, receiving medical attention, the Argentinian – whose impressive physique had drawn gasps at the weigh-in when she stripped for the scales – celebrated her triumph with trainer Carlos Tello and her father, Luis Olivares, who had accompanied her on the long trip. The fight – the first ever women's match to headline a pay per view in Mexico – was retransmitted by Fox Sports en Español to the whole of South America. Whether you believe (with Argentina's Boxeo Boxing) that Oliveras controlled the fight from beginning to end or accept the view of the Mexican press that Nava, after a slowish start in which the challenger seemed stronger, more aggressive and even faster, and a disastrous second round in which she was twice sent to the canvas, won the fifth, sixth and seventh as 'the Locomotive' began to run out of steam, there could be no arguments at the end. Pressing desperately in the belief that victory could still be hers, Nava left herself open for a split second and the Argentinian imposed her will in the most brutal fashion; and dethroned the 'Aztec Princess' in front of her own people and in her own home town.

Too often championship fights disappoint. This one did not. In fact, the hyperbole leading up to the IWBF World Lightweight Title fight between Jamie “the Hurricane” Clampitt and fellow Rhode Islander Missy “the Fury” Fiorentino was exceeded only by the actual events inside the ring.  Fiorentino, the current IWBF Featherweight Champion, scored a unanimous (97-94, 96-94,96-94) decision over the Canadian native before 1,512 highly vocal fans at the Rhode Island Convention Center.  Fiorentino upped her record to 14-1 (6 KO) in wresting the crown from Clampitt. Clampitt dropped to 16-4-1 with the disappointing defeat.  For both fighters the stakes were elevated. History will show that this was the first time a main event in the women’s division was held in the Ocean State.  “It was intense,” said Fiorentino who came in at 131. “I tried to relax an not get crazy in there, because I knew if I got crazy I’d get wild and sloppy.”  Fiorentino, as is her style, stayed in close proximity to Clampitt throughout the opening rounds. Clampitt, who was coming off a long layoff due to a broke hand, moved well in the early going.  “I kind of forced her to fight my fight. I knew she’s a good boxer and she likes to move around. I knew I had to cut her off, keep her on the inside,“ said the newly minted champion.  Clampitt stuck early, forcing a straight right past Fiorentino’s defenses in the second. In the third round, Fiorentino working in close again, landed a hard overhand right that stung Clampitt.  A few times I saw her hands drop and I thought that she was open for the straight right and (trainer)Peter (Manfredo Sr.) kept telling me to follow up with the hook,” said Fiorentino.  Manfredo said his boxer’s winning edge was honed in a California training camp last month. “She sparred with six different women. Some at 150, some at 160, some with boxing style, some with great jabs-so we were ready for anything that she threw at us tonight. She excelled at everything tonight, executed the plan perfectly,” he said.  Clampitt and Fiorentino were visibly reluctant to ease up in the level of intensity during the middle rounds, as evidenced by the first clutch of the night, midway through the sixth round. In the seventh, Fiorentino fired a trio of lefts at her opponent, the later moving Clampitt back a step. More

Nanako Kikuchi
, of Japan, successfully defended her WBC Minimumweight title when she won by a 10-round unanimous decision over Siriporn Sor Siriporn. Final judges scores were 97-93, 96-94, and 96-94. In a second women's bout,  Former world title challenger Nongmai Sor Siriporn pounded out a majority decision victory over Hong Kong, women’s boxing champion Tse Hoi Wah to win her fourth straight since failing in her bid to win the title from Nanako Kikuchi. The bout was a see-saw battle which saw both fighters hurt several times; Sor Siriporn was slightly busier than Wah and deserving of the close decision victory. Judges scores: 58-56, 56-56, 57-57. Report by Scott Mallon: Thai inmate Siriporn “The Black Rose” Sor Siriporn hoped to become the first-ever female prisoner to win a professional boxing title but WBC minimumweight champion Nanako Kikuchi proved to be too strong and technically superior, winning a unanimous ten-round decision in the Klong Prem Men’s Prison.  In November of last year, fellow inmate Nongmai Sor Siriporn hit the headlines worldwide when she unsuccessfully challenged Kikuchi for the vacant WBC championship.  Kikuchi only began boxing three years ago and in this time has won the Japanese women’s title as well as the WBC world title.   Siriporn Sor Siriporn is housed in the Women’s Correctional Institution for Drug Offenders an hour outside of the center of Bangkok. She entered the facility at the age of seventeen and is serving ten years for drug offenses. She has four years left on her sentence however in all likelihood this will be reduced to two years. The Sor Siriporn name is taken by the fighters from the name the warden of the Women’s Correctional Facility for Drug Offenders where they are incarcerated, Siriporn Chutikuluang. It is common for Thai fighters to take the name of their sponsors, trainers or those who help them with their careers.  The ring was set deep inside the walls of the Klong Prem Men’s Prison, through five sets of doors and nestled tightly on a small concrete slab, just close enough to some of the inmate’s cells so they were able to view the encounter. The fight was not open to the public but nonetheless there were over 1000 in attendance not including the 4729 inmates.

May 9, 2006 - Sazka Arena, Prague
Towering seven inches over a hopelessly outclassed
opponent, 24-year-old Karolina Lukasik of Warsaw (now fighting out of Hamburg) had no trouble taking all four rounds this afternoon in the Sazka Arena, Prague, against the winless (0-5; now 0-6) Ukrainian, 37-year-old Larisa Berezenko. Berezenko, whose nose was bleeding almost from the start of the contest, was twice staggered in the third by powerful right crosses from her southpaw opponent and rescued from near-certain annihilation in the fourth by a standing eight count, after Lukasik set her up nicely with the jab before stunning her with the best punch of the fight (40-35, 40-35, 40-35).

NABF featherweight champion Jeri "Fist of Fury" Sitzes (11-5-1- 5 KO's) won by unanimous decision over tough Lina Ramirez of Guasave,  Mexico. Sitzes knocked down Ramirez in the second round. The game Ramirez got off the canvas an came back very aggressive even though she was hurt. Sitzes continued to use her jab an set up her combinations while Ramirez was trying to get close to Sitzes to throw body punches and smother Sitzes punches. Sitzes is looking to fight Ina Menzer of Germany for the WIBF world championship since they had already signed contracts and got plane flights and for some reason Menzer backed out of the fight. We all know why! Menzer has a title defense on 5-27-06 but no opponent. Sitzes would love to have that call.
