Chloe Chaos 2-1-1 (1) captured the vacant female Victorian state middleweight title with a hard fought six-round unanimous decision over Caitlin Beckett 0-1-1 at the Pullman Hotel in Albert Park Melbourne on Saturday 9 December. The bout took place on the undercard of the WBO Global Super Flyweight clash between Andrew Moloney 26-3 (16) and Judy Flores 13-2-(7) of the Philippines. The card was promoted by Will Tomlinson.
Both Chaos and Beckett were keen to get the win after their last bout at the same venue three months ago resulted in a split draw. The fight got off to a quick start with Beckett landing good body shots in the opening round. Chaos began to find her mark with the jab in the second round, taking advantage of her superior height and reach. The next two rounds were closely contested with both combatants having their moments. The Fifth frame was Beckett’s best of the fight, making it a very close contest. In a frantic sixth and final round both boxers emptied their tanks and threw everything they had left at their opponent. The action had the crowd on their feet when the final bell rang.
When the dust settled Chaos had her arm raised and was crowned the new Victorian State Middleweight Champion by scores of 58-56 across the board.
