April 17, 2008 -  Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino, in Lemoore, California
Jessica Rakoczy and Cindy Serrano fought a good clean and fast-paced eight rounds. Rakoczy won the fight by a unanimous decision, with a 80-72 scores from all three judges. There were no knockdowns, and neither appeared to be in trouble during the match.  In what would have been a world title bout, Carina Moreno was to have fought Dan-Bi Kim, for the vacant WIBA and WBC Strawweight belt, but it was discovered that her actual age was 17 years old, and the fight was cancelled.  According to photographer Bob Silverman who covered the event for WBAN, about eight people made the trip with Kim from Korea for this fight with Moreno.  WBAN was also told by another source that the commission cancelled the fight. According to our sources, the State Athletic Commission official had confirmed that Kim's paperwork had the correct date of birth, but that the state people did not check it for age until Thursday.
