Clarkson was able to survive and make it to the final bell.  Score cards read 40-36 twice, and 39-37.
“I felt really good going into this fight and it showed in my performance,” said Selina Barrios. “I was able to cut off the ring and put a lot of pressure on Jasmine.  She was very tough and I give her a lot of credit for going the distance.  I felt I won every round but one judge didn’t see it that way. My goal is to get back in the ring as soon as possible.”
