Portland Boxing Club's Katherine Zehr, an elite featherweight (125 pounds) female from South Portland, lost a close decision to Alexandra Fernandez of Texas at the USA Boxing National Championships in Shreveport, Louisiana on December 8, 2021.

Zehr started slow in the first round while finding her range. She applied non-stop pressure working the body on the inside throughout the second and third rounds, which quickly tired Fernandez and caused her to repeatedly hold Zehr throughout both rounds. The judges scored the bout very close; however, their scorecards ultimately weren't in Zehr's favor.
