Women's fights In Ferndale
Photos and Story by Mike Blair

(JAN 19, 2008) The Silver Reef Casino filled half of the fight card on January 17th with women’s bouts. Six women, three fights, two of the rematches, and two Northwest belts resulted in just about everything a fight fan would like to see.  Molly McConnell stepped in to the ring to face Tammie Johnson in a rematch of a fight last year that though McConnell won, there were those ringside who believed should have leaned toward Johnson. There would be no such controversy in this fight. McConnell answered the opening bell, met Johnson in the middle of the ring and threw a jab straight and hard at her head. Johnson answered throwing both the left and right, from the outside, and while keeping her head down, plowing forward.  While Johnson was certainly the busier fighter in the first round, if one counts punches thrown, she did not counter McConnell’s accuracy and efficiency.
