2007-09-27 : Ann Saccurato 133½ lbs beat Jessica Rakoczy 134 lbs by KO at 1:58 in round 10 of 10

Ann Marie won the WBC Lightweight title (which she had vacated to fight Holly Holm for the Welterweight crown) by knocking out local favorite Jessica Rakoczy of Las Vegas at 1:58 in the tenth round. Rakoczy had controlled the early rounds but was in trouble from a later-round rally by the hard-charging Saccurato although she was reportedly ahead on two of the three scorecards. Saccurato dropped Rakoczy with a stunning straight right to her face, and the referee stopped the bout.
