At Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan, Olivia "Predator" Gerula, 59.3 kg, of Canada defeated Japan's Fujin Raika [aka: Emiko Raika], 60.0 kg, by an eight round split decision (78-77, 78-76, and 76-77).
WBAN was told, "In what was scored a close fight. Team Gerula feels there was a much bigger gap and while taking the brunt of several unintentional head butts remained focussed on their objective to out box and not get caught in wild exchanges. Gerula was able to get the punches off first and used lateral movement to take away Raika's aggressiveness and power."
Congratulations to Olivia for a big win on the road!
