By Lovemore Ndou: Sporting some fresh cornrows at first glance one could have easily mistaken her for R&B artist Alicia Keys. When she stepped into that ring you could have easily expected to hear the tunes of the hit song “A woman’s Worth”. But no, this girl didn’t step into that ring at the Moonee Valley racecourse to sing. She stepped into that ring to give Arlene Blencowe, her opponent some serious beating. The only thing she shared with Alicia Keys on this occasion was the fact that she was just a “Girl on Fire”.
The fight kept the boxing fans on their feet as the two girls went toe to toe from start to finish. If there is one thing guaranteed about women boxing is you will always get your money’s worth. Girls always come to fight. They don’t have time for the fancy footwork crap. That’s one thing fans love about women boxing. Sarah won the fight on points after six action packed rounds.
When asked about what she thought of her performance on the night and her future plans, the girl nicknamed “Missy” didn’t have much to say.
“It was a tough fight just as I expected. Right now I’m just enjoying the moment and in the next couple of days I will make an announcement about my future plans. You can expect a title fight.
“My opponent was tough just as I expected. She hits hard and you can expect her to make a great fighter in the future despite this loss.”
On the undercard Missy’s girlfriend Red Diamond Thorn won her debut fight against Yi Sia.
“I won by unanimous decision but I don’t remember much of the fight. My opponent had a pretty bloodied face about 20 seconds into the fight and being my first fight it kinda put me off a bit”, said Red Diamond Thorn.
To celebrate their wins the two girls went to watch the Melbourne Tigers Basketball match last Sunday. They are both big fans of the Melbourne Tigers.
