Maureen Shea v. Yulihan Alejandra Luna Avila

August 29th, The Forum, Englewood CA.
Gobox Promotions

Sugar Shane Mosley's Gobox Promotions brought women's boxing back to US PPV in over a decade by featuring IFBA champion Maureen Shea and IBF champion Yulihan Alejandra Luna Avila in a double championship fight.

With both titles on the line, each fighter had a lot risk and a lot to prove.

First round action was all Avila, who was the longer lanky fighter. She used her reach and quick combinations to win all three judges scorecards.

Maureen Shea showed her trademark "walk you down style" in the second, which enabled her to catch Yulihan with the overhand right.  Definitely a Shea round.

The next couple of rounds was a toss up between the judges which ultimately showed Avila ahead on the scorecards.

The experience and power punches of Shea began to work for her into the middle rounds.  Depending on the judge, each saw the fight very differently.  At times the judges preferring the quick combinations of Avila, another scoring the power punching of Shea and the third crossing back and forth between the two.

The championship final round needed a fighter to make the big push.  Both were tired and worked hard to get the nod, with two out of the three giving it to Shea because of her aggressive forward pressure.

Both camps felt they did their part to take the decision, but in the end it was a split draw.  The competitors retain their titles, and both camps voicing thoughts of a rematch.

Scores:  92-98, 95-95, 97-93
Judges:  Michael Tate, David Mendoza, Steve Hicks

Supervisor: Kim Messer- Caminschi
Supervisor: Glenn Hamada

Referee: Jerry Cantu
