Terri Blair ended a layoff of more than a year, winning a unanimous decision over Adelita Irizarry in a women’s junior welterweight bout.“It’s been about 15 or 16 months since I’ve been in there,” Blair said. “I was trying to work all the angles. She’s a tough girl and she was heavier than I was. She was leaning a lot. I tried to get in and brawl a little bit. I tried to box a little bit. I tried to mix it up and put on a good show for the people.”
The Louisville, Ky., fighter improved to 11-13-2 with six knockouts. Irizarry, of Hartford, Conn., is 6-3-0 with two knockouts.
Blair was anxious to fight. The tough economy and a lack of opposition kept her away from the ring.
“I’ve been out unwillingly,” Blair said. “I jumped at this chance to come in here and fight. It felt great to get back in the ring. I love fighting here. The people are just really into it and they put a lot of energy into the fighters.”
