November 24, 2006 - Copenhagen, Denmark
Anita Christensen, 121, of Denmark, defeated Jessica Mohs, 121, of the United States, by a six-round unanimous decision,  in a typical boxer vs. slugger fight in Copenhagen tonight. The non title fight was scheduled to 6 rounds, and the judges all agreed on 60-54 in favour of the Danish WBA, WBC & GBU World Champion. Jessica Mohs was a very plucky opponent, who kept coming forward through all six rounds, despite being punished by crisp counter punching by Christensen throughout the fight. Occasionally Mohs managed to drag Christensen into fighting inside, which did make her [Christensen] lose momentum and style. After being reprimanded between rounds by her trainer Kjeld Krogh, Christensen went back to what she does best,  scoring with her left jab and crossing Mohs as she came forward. Christensen showed very good technical boxing, piling up points and her excellent footwork and speed prevented Mohs to get through with much. Mohs was assisted by Stephanie Dobbs in her corner. Dobbs is becoming quite a familiar face in Europe, but on the previous visits she was wearing the gloves herself. She has fought in Germany, Hungary, Ukraine and also boxed Anita Christensen in Denmark 3 years ago. Source: Torben L. - WBAN's Correspondent in Denmark  Logged in Master Search

November 18, 2006 - Northern Lights Casino - Anacortes, Washington - By Mike Blair - Boxingprospects.net
Merced Nunez quickly dismantled Danielle Lanford. Nunez, whose only loss is to Melissa Hernandez, is a hard hitting junior lightweight who since that loss has been much more aggressive than her opponents. Before Lanford to reach the middle of the ring to answer the opening bell, Nunez had landed a left jab and was loading her right. Lanford tried to step back, but Nunez would have none of that as she stayed within arm's length, popping Lanford's head back time after time. The fight looked to be over less than a minute in to the round, when Nunez pinned Lanford on the ropes and landed lefts and rights to Lanford's chin. Lanford somehow snuck away from the barrage, but only momentarily.  Nunez caught up with Lanford on the far side of the ring and after a few teeth jarring punches, Lanford realized there would be no escape. She tried though. When Lanford covered her head, Nunez threw punches to the body, and then Lanford dropped her elbows and Nunez saw the target on the chin again.  As the seconds ticked down to end the opening round, Lanford's cornermen were desperately waving a towel, asking that the carnage end. It did, at 1:59. Now Nunez finds herself in that position where, after two KO wins, she may not get the 'easy' opponent. However, if she continues to improve, it may not matter.  Logged in Master Search

November 18, Brampton, ON, Canada
Sandy Tsagoris
won a six-round unanimous decision over Olga Heron.  Story:   In April 2004, Sandy Tsagouris walked away with a unanimous decision victory over Olga Heron. Tsagouris soundly defeated Heron and both women went on their separate ways. However, within the last year Heron had her new mini van painted. Most would say “well big deal, who cares!” What makes this new paint job so significant is that the new paint scheme featured an unflattering photo of Tsagouris.  In the picture Heron is landing a huge punch to Tsagouris’s face which distorts it. The two boxers live in neighbouring suburbs of the Greater Toronto Area thus it wasn’t long before Tsagouris found out about her photo being on the side of Heron’s van. Tsagouris was not too pleased and vowed to knock Heron out if the two were to ever meet again. Last night Tsagouris was given her chance to exact her revenge on Heron as the two met in a six round matchup at the Powerade Centre in Brampton Ontario, Canada put on by Stele promotion. This match was one of the most exciting and vocal matches of the evening due to the grudge between the two fighters.

November 14, 2006 - Palasport Villa Romiti, in Forli, Italy, on a Eurosport televised card
Simone Galassi's had to work much harder than expected in her second pro fight. The Italian, who has won everything there is to win in the amateur ranks faced Svetla Taskova, who has a lot of experience, but very few wins, in the pro game. Taskova has a very awkward boxing style and despite a clear deficit in both boxing skills and reach, she managed to take the three times Amateur World Champion through the full eight rounds. Galassi's victory was never in doubt, winning all eight rounds convincingly----but she made things more difficult than necessary by letting herself be dragged into inside, instead of using her reach advantage.  Galassi won by a unanimous decision.
