This will be war!

Current IBF Female Featherweight Title Champion Dahiana Santana (21-6-0, 12-KOs) will be fighting her third rematch with challenger Stacey “Staylo” Reile (10-4-0, 4-KOs) who initially won the title against her in March of 2011 before losing the title to Santana in November 2011.  Their third meeting is much anticipated and should be a tough, tough fight.

The second female championship bout will be for the IBF Super Bantamweight Title pitting the hard hitting champion Ada Velez (20-3-3, 6-KO) against the home town favorite Katy Wilson Castillo (14-1-0, 9-KOs). Velez, best known for her bruising battles against Melinda Cooper.  Velez has also fought and won against Stacey Reile.

Women’s Boxing Results: IBF Championships 11/20/11

In a stunning evening of women’s boxing at its best at the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas, Ada Velez (20-2-3, 6-KO’s) retained her IBF Female Super Bantamweight championship belt in a hard-fought contest against Melinda “La Maravilla” Cooper (21-2, 11-KOs).  The judges scored the bout 98-92, 97-93 , 95-95 giving Velez a majority win. People on the scene found the third judges score surprising as they otherwise had Velez decisively dominating Cooper throughout the bout.

In what was an upset win, Dominican fighter Dahiana Santana (28-6, 12-KOs) soundly defeated former champion Stacey Reile (10-4, 4 KOs) to become the new IBF Female Featherweight Champion.  Both boxers fought a hard tough fight with the final decision scoring noted as 98-90, 97-90, 97-91.

The undercard bout with Las Vegas’ own Tatina “Lil Tyson” Anderson (5-1-1, 4-KOs) was no less exciting with her third round stoppage of  Victoria Cisneros (5-13-2, 1-KO).

Sue Ti Fox of WBAN covered the fight along with photographer Mary Ann Lurie Owen.  I highly recommend checking WBAN for some fabulous photos and cover on the bouts.  The link for the quick results is here.  I’d also recommend checking back later for her longer piece.

Chris Cozzone also covered the fight for Fightnews.com.  His piece is here.
