First up was Siona Fernandez , she competed against the Dominion boxer Dom Gomez and beat her comfortably 11-4 really coming home in the 4 th round. Siona competes again onthe 11th Saturday aginst Csilla Nemedi-Varga of Hungary .
Second up in the Evening was Eske Dost , she competed against Thi Ngo of Vietnam, this was a exciting and close bout going right down to the wire,Eske was 1 point behind right till 35 seconds to go,and then drew even,winning on a count back by 2 points. Great for the nerves, these two boxers really set the stage for us and was a great night.
Kelly Woolrich was aginst Svitlana Tertychna of Ukraine , Kelly was leading 4 to 0 in first round and had just put a count on the Ukraine ,and then she walked into a right hand to the temple and was out , ref stopped contest head
Dawn Chalmers was against Bianka Nagy of Hungary . Dawn won on points 12-7 excellent bout ,Dawn rocked her with her right hand and scored points of her left. Exciting as the Hungary girl won the Europeans this year, she was interviewed afterwards, by lots of reporters so I guess she was not expected to win.
Magan Maka was against Tiffanie Hearn of U S A what an exciting bout , went right down to the wire, 7-6 to USA but if Magan had got one more point she would have won on count back by 1 point. She should be very proud.
