Cleveland boxing returns this Saturday night at the Slovenian Nat’l Ballroom
10+ Great Bouts, Including a Women’s Title Bout and 2 Feature Bouts.

May 3, 2010 – Cleveland Boxing Examiner – Charles Indriolo

This Saturday night, May 8, amateur boxing returns to the Slovenian Nat’l Ballroom in Cleveland for “BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM” The 10-plus bout event is being promoted locally by The West Side Boxing Club, in association with Kincaid-Godhard Promotions. The event will be the second this year for the Cleveland-based promotional company. Last January, they held the excellent “War at the Armory” card in Brook Park. Like that event, “BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM” is sure to be a fun night watching some of the best amateur fighters in the area.

In the first feature bout, 2008 Cleveland Golden Gloves champion, and fan favorite, Brian ‘The Korean Brawler’ Park (West Side B.C.) will take on Latiss Norman (Cory Fight Club) in a 152-pound match-up. In the co-feature, the best female lightweight in Ohio will be decided when Jessica Eye (Strong Style MMA) takes on Lauren Coney (PAL/Thurgood) at 132-pounds. Eye, the reigning women’s National Amateur Mixed Martial Arts champion, is undefeated as a fighter. Lauren Coney is an accomplished boxer, with many fights under her belt. Their fight is just one of three women’s bouts on the card.

In addition to the two feature bouts, “BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM” will also showcase at least eight main card bouts.

At 119-pounds, female fighters Eve Santiago and Asia Smith (PAL/Thurgood) will square off. At 132-pounds, there are three fights on the card. Former Cleveland Golden Gloves champ Greg Gilbert (West Side B.C.) will take on 2010 CGG’s runner-up Kenneth Brown (Cudell Rec.). Nick Titschinger (Playland MMA) will square off against Christian Colon (Raul Torres B.C.). With Ashley Barnett taking on Carrie Fiol (Warren B.C.), in one of the three female bouts.

There will be two fights on the card at 165-pounds. 2010 CGG’s runner-up Matt Brown (Terminator B.C.) will take on 2010 CGG’s participant Dequilla Smith (PAL/Thurgood). The two men did not meet up in this year’s Gloves, so it could make for an interesting match-up. Also at 165-pounds, well experienced amateurs Kenny Brown (Empire B.C.) and Josh Kroesen (Warren B.C.) will square off.


At 185-pounds, Brandon Radiwiec (Freddy’s B.C.) will fight Rohar Canales (Raul Torres B.C.), in one of two bouts in the weight class. The other will pin 2010 CGG’s participant David Frum (Terminator B.C.) against John Kutitus (Raul Torres B.C.)

Also at “BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM” will be one preliminary high school bout, featuring Christian White (Terminator B.C.) taking on Daniel Caldera (Freddy’s B.C.) in a match-up of 170-pounders.

Other fighters listed on the card, but yet to have opponents are Ryan Forbes, Jason Chisar and Gabrielle Conway. Forbes was the 2010 CGG’s runner-up in the 178-pound ‘Open’ division.

Only a limited amount of tickets remain for “BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM”. Tickets start at just $15 and can be purchased through the Kincaid-Godhard Promotions box office at (440) 223-7409 or on-line at ProBoxingOhio.com.

The Slovenian Nat’l Ballroom is located at 6417 St. Clair Avenue in Cleveland. The event will provide free parking and adult refreshments for purchase. Fights start at 7:30 pm.
