Boxing in North Olmsted: Results
Thompson, Colvin, and Taylor win.
Cleveland, OH - November 24, 2008 - The St. Clarence Hall in North Olmsted, Ohio was buzzing with excitement on Friday, November 21st, as Kincaid Godhard Promotions presented live professional boxing. A standing room only crowd was treated to 6 professional bouts and 4 preliminary amateur bouts.
In one of the feature fights of the evening Ryan “The Tank” Thompson from East Cleveland upped his record to (8-6, 6KO) with a 4 round unanimous decision victory over a very game Dione Craig (4-14, 1KO). Thompson battered Craig with a large volume of punches, especially in the last 2 rounds. Thompson is currently on a 3 fight win streak. Craig deserves credit for not only taking the fight on just 1 days notice, but also for fighting with a lot of heart.
Cruiserweight Tanya “The Red Neck Mama” Colvin improved her record to (2-0, 1KO) with a 4 round unanimous decision victory over Elecia “Mega” Battle (3-2, 3KO). Colvin, who had little defense, ate a lot of jabs in the beginning of the fight. But she slowly wore down Battle during the fight with a relentless offense, and was on the verge of a stoppage when the bell sounded to end the fight.
Heavyweight sensation Andres “Taylor Made” Taylor (4-0-1, 1KO) from Johnstown, PA scored 2 knock downs in the first round to take home a 4 round unanimous decision victory over Mike Jones (5-15, 2KO). Jones valiantly fought his way back in to the fight, but could not shake the faster Taylor.
In the opening match heavyweight Justin Riegle (1-0) from Orrville, Ohio scored a split decision victory over Brian Cook (1-2, 1KO) from Nordonia, Ohio, in a spirited bout that could have went either way.
Cruiserweight Rayshawn “The Bully” Myers from Cleveland scored a second round TKO over Jason Williams from Kentucky. Myers used a wild and unorthodox offense to batter Williams for the TKO stoppage. Myers, who started his boxing career with 2 straight losses, moves his record to an even 2-2 with 2KO’s, Williams drops to 1-1.
In what was the fourth heavyweight bout of the night, Jason “Big Daddy” Massie from Cleveland, scored a second round TKO stoppage over Richard Greene from Indiana. Massie stays undefeated at 2-0, 1KO while Greene drops to 1-1.
Preliminary amateur bouts started the evening off and included Brian Park over Dan Jones via third round stoppage from body shots, Yondale Evans over Derrick Moss, Kenny Brown over Wilkins Santiago, and Stipe Miocic upped his combined MMA/boxing record to 6-0 (all 6 victory’s via first round stoppage) with a first round TKO stoppage over Christopher Smiley.
