Barber vs. Chomaz
Jennifer Barber 8-0-0 (4 KO) WBAN #7 ranked featherweight vs. Myriam Chomaz 9-1-0 (7 KO)
Paris, France WBC Super Featherweight Interim Title
Barber's first overseas pro bout
According to a report I received from WBAN's Ewan Whyte:
"The commentators said that it was a very hard fight and an even one, that they saw Barber ahead earlier on, but that Chomaz had come back at her towards the end. Jean-Claude Bouttier said that, in his opinion, Barber, whom he described as ‘very, very good’, was worth at least a draw. Christian Delcourt went further, describing the American as ‘super’, but concluded by saying that “that takes nothing away from the victory of Myriam Chomaz”.
More details later, but props to Barber for going to Paris to fight Chomaz on her home turf.
