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. Both fighters would put on impressive performances for former heavyweight champion, Michael Moorer, who was providing color commentary for the fight’s television broadcast and former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor, who was in attendance.

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.
