The 2010 finale of PrizeFight Boxing’s Fights at the Fitz series ended with crowd-pleasing rematch of female lightweights that easily surpassed the excitement of the original fight.

The 8-round main event between Nicole Woods (11-7-1 3 KOs) and Kim Connor (6-1-2 3 KOs) was the sequel to a draw between the two women from January 30, 2010.

Connor, who was easily the crowd favorite, would stand toe to toe with the taller and more powerful Woods, and the two fighters didn’t disappoint the sellout crowd. From the opening bell until the final bell, Woods and Connor took turns trading hard shots, with some landing even after the bell.

Capital Gym, Bejing, China – Southaven, MS, female boxer, Cristy Nickel was unable to capture the vacant IBA Light Middleweight Title over Kim Connors ( incorrectly reported that Miriam Brakache defeated Nickel as she was originally slated to face Nickel), in her first title bid.

This was NIckel’s second consecutive heartbreaking loss to Connors.

In Heavyweight action, Eric “Butterbean” Esch” tried to topple, Ellisville, MS’s, Kenny Craven in a rematch but was once again handed a unanimous decision loss at the hands of Craven. All three judges saw the bout 39-37 for Cravens. Butterbean and Cravens fought in May ’05 at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson, MS where Cravens was the victor by majority decision.
