January 24, 2004 -The Bank of America of Centre
Boise, Idaho

At the Bank of America Centre, in snowy Boise, Idaho, and in front of about 2,000 boxing fans, Mia “The Knockout” St. John, 137, (30-3-2, 13 KO) won a four-rounder by a unanimous decision (40-36) against Franchesca Alcanter, 137, (10-5-1, 5 KO) in their rematch from their first bout that took place at the Playboy Mansion, in the year 2000. According to news sources, St. John said that she was a little nervous about fighting in Boise for the first time, but that the crowd was very supportive and was pleased to see the boxing fans in Boise urge her to win.

St. John talked about wanting to avenge her loss against Christy Martin and would like a rematch. In the second women’s match, Betty Stephens, Salt Lake City, Utah, who came in eight pounds heavier (124 lbs) than Beth Westover, 116, from Boise, Idaho, won a four-round unanimous decision over Westover.

Westover showing a tad bit of humor after the fight, donned a t-shirt with the saying “Tonya Who? Put up or shut up”. Westover was referring to her original opponent Tonya Harding who did not fight her, after Harding backed out due to her trainer being served with a lawsuit in regards to Harding fighting in Boise. Stephens moved her record to 2-0-0, and Westover is now 1-1-0.
