FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1979
I have received an original
"Official Souvenir Program" from this fight, and have
scanned the brochure for boxing fans! (Copyrighted to
Western Entertainment & Athletic Promotion - T.C.B.
Some interesting highlights of
the fighters that were listed on this card:
is now a trainer for Bridgett Riley,
and her husband, Blinky Rodriguez manages Riley!
VanBuskirk, who was undefeated in the 80's, started boxing
again in 1996. She has since fought Lucia
Rijker and other 90's fighters as a professional.
a twin of Dora Webber, who both have fought off and on for
the last 20 years, fought some of the best in the 90's.
Rodriguez, a former World featherweight champion, was Sue
TL Fox's opponent on two occasions. TL Fox defeated
her easily at Incline Village in Nevada, and in the State of
Utah! Rodriguez has also lost to Cora and Dora Webber,
Lili Rodriguez, Squeaky Bayardo, Shirley
Tucker, and others. It was surprising to TL Fox, when
she was researching women's boxing that she ran across a 1993
article where Toni Lear Rodriguez was fighting a 0-2 fighter.
Rodriguez told the commentator in the article that she was an
UNDEFEATED FIGHTER with something in the range of 73-0. By the
way, she lost that night in 1993 to the 0-2 fighter....
