Video+Gallery+Story: Han defeats Sitzes in Saturday’s ‘Fighting for Legacy’

IBF World Featherweight Champion Jennifer Han made her return to the ring  vs Jeri Sitzes at the El Paso County Coliseum in front of a crowd of 2,000 Saturday night.

After almost a two year break from the ring, Han looked to return stronger and quicker than before. At the same time, Sitzes was unable to land shots on the champion throughout the match.

While Sitzes was the aggressor for most of the fight as she continued to move in on Han, she was greeted with a series of jabs and hooks from Han.

Han’s endurance was a non issue, as she utilized the entire ring throughout the fight and mastered up a series of combinations that kept Sitzes at bay. Han showed more power in her punches, which stopped Sitzes’ forward attack.

The contrast in styles was evident, as Sitzes was unable to land most of her punches, while Han was able to evade most of her combination attempts. Sitzes was able to withstand Hans best combinations of the night able to take the match to the full eight rounds.

All three judges scored the bout 80-72  in unanimous decision with Jennifer Han getting the Victory. Han’s record moves to 18-3-1 and Jeri Sitzes falls to 15-11-1

As for what’s next, Han shares that she has her sights set on defending her championship and winning more titles to add to the collection. We will have to wait and see who will be next for El Paso’s Sweetheart.
