Hill Beats Drew in 6 Round Unanimous Decision
When: 2/21/2003 - 2/21/2003
Where: Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.
February 21, 2003 - Roxy Theater, Atlanta, Georgia (Report by Marc DeLamater)
Not since Cat Davis' ill-starred foray her e in 1978 has a female boxing match
served as the main event in a fight card in Atlanta, GA. Yet, on this wet Friday
night in Buckhead at the Coca-Cola Roxy Theater, local lightweight prospect
Trisha "TNT" Hill, 132, squared off against Liz Drew, 130, of Jefferson
City, MO, in a six-rounder that arguably was the best-fought match of an excellent
eight-bout fight card put on by David Oblas and Austin Wingo of Undisputed Production,
LCC. The match was a first six-rounder for both fighters, with Hill dominating
the offense with an effective right that raised a bruise over Drew's left eye.
Yet Drew doggedly hung on throughout the fight, even when taking a standing
eight count in final round, although an answer to Hill's right hand lies in
an agreed-to rematch. Hill won by a unanimous decision with final scores of
60-53, 60-54, and 60-54.
Stay tuned because the two rock!
Tonight's card is the first of an ongoing series of bimonthly fight card to
be held on the third Friday by Undisputed Productions. Attendance was an impressive
1100. Intermission entertainment was provided by the incomparable Georgia Force
cheerleader squad led by strawweight contender Nina "Tha Bomb" Ahlin.
Also in attendance was pro prospect Natalie Brown, WBAN's fighter of the month
for February 2003. Logged on records site
