Alycia Baumgardner Remains Undisputed With A Win Over Christina Linardatou

Alycia Baumgardner secured a unanimous-decision win over Christina Linardatou to keep her undisputed-super-featherweight title. 

From the opening round, Baumgardner dominated with shots to the head and body, as Linardatou had no answer.
