Shondell Alfred only lost once in Guyana. Her four other defeats happened outside of the 83, 000 square miles known as the Land of Many Waters. `The Mystery Lady’ was defeated by Brazilian Alexandra Matheus in Aalborg, Denmark on February 28, 2004.
Judges Jan Christensen, Hans Larsen and Soren Saugmann all scored it 40-36 Matheus, a resident of Denmark.
The defeat was the third for Alfred who would later bounce back to win the vacant WIBA world title in September 2009 following a points decision win over Corinne Van Ryck DeGroot.
Alfred has not been in the ring since defeating Olga Julio on November 6, 2010 at the Princes Hotel and Casino. The mother of two was set to make a comeback in November 2012 against Mexican, Zulina Muñoz, for the World Boxing Council (WBC) female Super/flyweight title.
However, in a bizarre twist the fight was cancelled when doctors performing medical checks hours before the bout, discovered that the Guyanese was more than two months pregnant
