Sumya “The Island Girl” Anani, 140,  of Kansas City, successfully defended her WIBA 140 lb., Junior welterweight title, when she won by a 10-round unanimous decision over Stephanie Jaramillo, 140, of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jaramillo, with a heart of a lion, took the fight against Anani, after Anani’s original opponent, Daryls Pardo of Colombia fell through when she was having problems getting into the United States. Anani has only managed to get two fights in the last two years----not because she does not want to fight, but because she can’t get a fight. Most of the more well known top contenders in the sport, want big purses and television to step in the ring with Anani. WBAN is very impressed with Jaramillo for stepping up to the plate, and fighting a top female boxer as Anani,  for a world title belt. Too often, this sport is seeing mediocre “World title” fights that take place, and by all rights should not even be taking place.  Anani was the aggressor throughout the bout, with delivering a bloodied nose to Jaramillo in the fourth, and a knockdown near the end of the ninth round. In the tenth, Jaramillo had a point deducted for holding. Final scoring by judges was 100-88, 100-88, 99-89. Anani improves her record to 24-1-1 (10KO), and Jaramillo is now 4-2-1 (2KO).  On the undercard, Sharon Gaines, 121,  of Kansas City, won a four-round unanimous decision over pro debuter Camille Casson, 120,  of Covington, Kentucky. Gaines is now 5-2-0 (0KO), and Casson is 0-1-0 (0KO).
