The opening event "Stars and Stripes" was in California, US. British fighter Julie Kitchen took on Martina Jindrova from the Czech Republic, winning on points. Also in this group are Sandra Bastian from Canada and Tainara Lisboa from Brazil.

Peru-based Valentina Shevchenko won against Angelique Pitiot from France on points also. I remember watching Shevchenko in the amateurs a few years back, not at all surprised she is doing so well now. The other fighters in this group are Chantal Ughi (Italy) and Ilona Wjimans (Netherlands).
