St. John Responds to Anani's Interview
May 16, 2003
 
 
(MAY16) WBAN went one on one with Sumya "The Island Girl" Anani, and in that interview she talked about her last fight with Fredia Gibbs that took place on April 18, 2003, in Lemoore, California.  The following night, Gibbs worked Mia St. Johns corner, when Mia took on Jenifer Alcorn on April 19th, in Fresno, California.  After Mia read Anani's interview, she had some comments on her own about the Gibbs-Anani fight.  Mia told WBAN," First of all, Fredia did have a doctor look at her hand in the dressing room. In fact I had to sit and watch him put her thumb back in it's socket while she screamed in pain because she refused pain medication.   When we unwrapped her hands after the fight her thumb was just dangling out of it's socket. We took her to a doctor in Los Angeles who took X-rays that showed BOTH thumbs were fractured. This did not happen in the fight with Sumya. It happened in sparring two weeks before the fight. I urged Fredia not to fight but she insisted it would heal by fight
time.  Fredia will gladly fight her (Anani) again once her thumbs have healed. If Sumya thinks for one moment she tko'd Fredia in one round after scoring a draw with her in their last fight she's delusional. Don't get me wrong,  Sumya is a great fighter and I have a lot of respect for her as I do all fighters but she is clearly misinformed."
