Myriam Lamare (20-3, 10KOs) defeated Chevelle “Fists of Steel” Hallback (28-8-2, 11 KOs) for the vacant IBF Jr. Welterweight Championship at the Palais Des Sports in Toulon, France on November 5th.

Lamare was the clear aggressor in the early rounds using an array of combinations and excellent movement throughout.  Hallback fought hard with body shots and counterpunching, especially through the middle rounds, though the contest clearly went to Lamare.

The win was by unanimous decision after ten rounds of non-stop action.  The judges scored the bout, 99-91, 98-92 and 96-94.

By the way, the bout was broadcast on EuroSport — as it should have been!  Here’s some of the video action curtesy of YouTube!

Boxing News 24 has a good story here.

    Chevelle is my hero. I was really sorry to see her lose. But she looked damn good, don’t you think? I clicked through and ready the story on Boxing News 24, and was (once again) discouraged to see the ugly, sexist comments… Thanks for offering a better site!
