Father's Day Card
In a time when the daughters of famous male boxers came
onto the scene - early 2000's

 

June 18, 2000 Regent Hotel, Las Vegas, NV -Freeda Foreman (180) vs. Laquanda Landers (168) Foreman TKO'd Landers 1:44 in second Round.   Review from the Las Vegas Sun: "The best that can be said for Freeda (George) Foreman is that she won, as her "fight" with fellow novice LaQuanda Landers may have been the worst in recorded history. It mercifully ended at 1:44 of the second round when Foreman dispatched her opponent with a willowy punch that personified the slow-motion bout." Maria Johansson vs. Karrie Frye (Super-Middleweight) Four-round split decision we to Frye, bringing her record to 5-1 (4KO).  Maria is now 0-1.  Review from the Las Vegas Sun:  "The other women's feature was just the opposite, as Maria (Ingemar) Johansson and Karrie Frye had a competitive battle that went Frye's way by split decision. She had Johansson down and bleeding, and raised her record to 5-1 at the would-be protege's expense. For what it's worth, both Frye and Johansson would defeat Foreman with ease." By Dean Juipe  LAS VEGAS SUN.   The card was telecast on Fox Sports Net, with Sean Grady, and the Goosens who were promoting the daughters at this time.  Photos by Mary Ann Owen
