Spence drops first


Melissa “Little Miss Tyson” St Vil (4-1-2) took a majority decision over previously unbeaten Natasha “The Nightmare” Spence (6-1-1, 5 KOs) in an action-packed eight round super featherweight bout.

St Vil weighed in six pounds over the 130-pound limit, and was forced to shed a few pounds the night before the fight, but her energy level did not appear to be affected.

St Vil, the shorter of the two, opened with a right to the body, and Spence countered with a left hook to the head. Perceived as the harder puncher, Spence tried to impose her will with several more left hooks during the round.
