Nigeria ’ s boxing sensation Helen Joseph gave fans value for their time on Thursday night with an expected win over Hungary ’ s Martina Horgasx in Connecticut , U . S.
Joseph , aka “The Iron Lady” , defeated her challenger by unanimous decision (60 – 53 points) in the six – round Super Bantamweight fight at the Foxwoods Resort Casino .
Although the Connecticut -based 30- year – old aimed for a knockout, she was taken the distance by a rather resilient Horgasx , 20 , who managed to reach Round 6 on her feet .
With this victory , Joseph ’ s boxing record now stands at 22 fights comprising 17 wins , including 10 knockouts ; two draws, and three defeats by “ unjust” decision .
Thursday ’ s was her second bout after a one – year competition drought occasioned by lack of sponsorship and alleged discrimination by promoters who prefer boxers with large fan bases .
On April 3 , Joseph ended the one- year break by defeating Edina Kiss , another Hungarian , by unanimous decision in a six – round Super- Bantamweight in New York .
Reports that among the spectators at the arena on Thursday were officials of the Nigerian consulate led by the Consul – General , Mr Benayaogha Okoyen, and other members of the Nigerian community.
