The gamble by Maureen Shea’s Pandora Promotions and Global Boxing Promotions hosted the first female main event in New York City history Wednesday night at the Masonic Temple in Brooklyn, NY. In the main event, WBC super featherweight number one contender Alicia “Slick” Ashley (16-9-1, 1 KO) lived up to her nickname by using awkward movement and inventive angles to stay one step ahead of Crystal “The Baby-Faced Assassin” Hoy. Hoy was the aggressor throughout and found some success with left hooks and over hand rights, but Ashley’s jab controlled the bout. Ashley scored a knockdown in the eighth round on a left hook and closed the fight strong. The scores were 80-71 and 79-72 twice.
In other action, Jose “Chilli” Rivera (3-2) was awarded a majority decision victory over former Israeli Navy Crew Commander Eilon Kedem (10-4-5, 6 KO) of Brooklyn, NY. The scores were announced to a chorus of boos.
