Shelley Burton
, 158,  of Montana, won a six-round unanimous decision over Lisa Holywyne, 158, of Texas.  The six-round bout was the main event on the card.  Burton did a nice job of keeping a jab in Holewyne's face through most of the fight. Holewyne was rarely able to connect with more than one or two punches at a time. Burton really did not do a lot of damage either, but she landed enough jabs and controlled the flow of the fight. She stayed out of trouble and moved well enough to avoid getting caught with one of Holewyne's big bombs. Final judges scores were 59-55. Source: Mike Blair
