"BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM II"
Date: 1/29/11
Venue: Slovenian Nat'l Ballroom

Deyah Darweesh & Shawn Edge Steal the Show at Battle in the Ballroom II

 

 

A standing room crowd turned out last night to take in 14 fights at the Slovenian National Ballroom. The entertaining night of boxing, billed as The Battle in the Ballroom II, featured 3 stoppages and 2 full out knockouts with many other fights on the card being very evenly matched. The exciting card was put on by Kincaid-Godhard Promotions in association with the West Side Boxing Club. The cards' top billing saw Deyah Darweesh knock off Golden Gloves champion Franklin Barnes. Darweesh, who fights for West Side Boxing Club, was in control throughout and was estatic after pulling off the upset of Barnes who hails from Westlake and trains at Cudell Rec Center.

 

Cleveland Boxing Club's Dave Stargen was the unlucky recipient to draw the physically imposing Edge who dominated the fight from the get-go. Edge landed solid shots in the opening round that led to a standing eight count and Stargen's legs never recovered from the opening blows. By the second round, Stargen was done as Edge took him to floor with a series of punches that dropped Stargen and ended the heavyweight novice bout. Edge seemed to earn a fan-club of sorts as fans flocked to get an autograph and pictures following the impressive display of punching power.

 

In the first featured bout on the main card, West Side Boxing Club scored a victory with Mike Adams' decision over Aaron Hawkins. A belt was on the line in the Light Heavyweight College bout and Lakeland's Adams looked like a more polished fighter than Purdue's Hawkins as he dictated the action for the well deserved win. In the other featured bout, Levi Patterson defeated Dan Crabtree in 152 pound open division. Crabtree hails from Columbus while Patterson resides in Shaker Heights and trains at Empire Boxing Club.

 

West Side Boxing Club was victorious in their first time in the ring during the card. Delonte Heath employed a defensive strategy where he was seldom hit and scored a decision over Empire Boxing Club's Chris Butler. Cleveland Boxing Club scored their second win of the evening as Jerrell Brown repeatedly landed solid blows against Columbus' Justin Matthews. The fight was stopped in the second round after a standing eight count.

 

Curtis Meister, who trains with United BT/King's Gym, won a decision over a game Will Hill in a 140 pound subnovice match. Meister did just enough the first two rounds to score the victory over the feisty Hill who had more gas in his tank in the final round of the three round bout.

 

The most closely contested fight of the evening was between Xavier Figueroa and Eddie Santos. Figueroa nearly pulled off a comeback but came up just short in a close descion. Both boxers, who fought at 150 pounds, came out bloodied after the bout. Santos trains for Raul Torres Boxing while Figueroa conditions at Cleveland Boxing Club.

 

Columbus fighter Eddie Yu scored a close win over West Side Boxing Club's Al Pugh. Yu took the first and third rounds while Pugh was impressive in the second round despite going home with the defeat.

 

One of the most dominating performance of the night came from Mike Van Dorn of Abba Gym in Bay City, Michigan. VanDorn floored Damen Pratzer, who resides in Cleveland Heights and trians at Michael J Zone Rec Center, within the first 10 seconds of the bout.VanDorn landed numerous punishing blows in the win that only took two minutes after the ref called the fight.

 

Jeremy Abram wore down Youngstown's Pat Brown in the 140 pound novice bout. Despite a deduction on the score card, Top Shelf BT/Kings Gym secured the victory with Abram over the Downtown Boxing Club of Youngstown.

 

Charles Paschal put on a impressive display in the subnovice division against Kaleen Knox. Knox dictated the action throughout with two standing eight counts before the fight was called a TKO by the referee in the second round. Paschal represents Cleveland Boxing Club while Knox trains at Royal Torres fights for Raul Torres Boxing.

 

Ibrahim Abdul'Haqq overcame a slow start against Devin Tomkins in the opening bout for a victory. Abdul'Haqq represents Cory Fight Club. Hopkins, who traveled from Bay City, Michigan, couldn't keep up with the quickness against the local fighter after taking the first round of the match.

 

Mark you calenders for May 14th as Kincaid-Godhard Promotions brings more live boxing to Slovenian Nat'l Ballroom with "BATTLE IN THE BALLROOM III". Once again, the top local amateur fighters from the area will be on display. For tickets and more information on the event, head over to www.wsboxingclub.com.

Results from Cleveland

The Ballroom was dancing Saturday night ,not with feet but with fists, as Kincaid-Godhard Boxing Promotions presented The Battle in the Ballroom. A capacity crowd was treated to 13 exciting amateur bouts with the main event leaving the crowd cheering for more as Jessica Eye (Strong Style MMA) captured the Ohio Women’s Lightweight Title with a decision over Lauren Coney (PAL / Thurgood BC). Both women had their shining moments throughout the contest but it was Eye who stuck to her game plan and wore down the aggressive Coney. Eye, a crowd favorite, is easily making the transition from MMA to Boxing as she has yet to be defeated in either arena of combat.

 

Following the event, promoter Todd Kincaid stated, “The Slovenian National Ballroom is an amazing venue to showcase Cleveland’s top talent. The crowd was electrifying, and the intimacy of the venue made everyone feel apart of the show. I want to thank all of our fighters for their dedication to the sweet science and all the staff and sponsors that made this event a success.”

May 9, 1:15 AM · Charles Indriolo - Cleveland Boxing Examiner

Cleveland, Ohio -- Last night fans were treated to 13 bouts of exciting boxing action at “Battle in the Ballroom” held in the Slovenian National Ballroom. The event, hosted by Kincaid-Godhard Boxing Promotions and the West Side Boxing Club, had fans cheering throughout for some of Cleveland’s best amateur fighters.

   
 

 

Preliminary Bouts...

 

The night started with a bang, as each of the first two fights ended in exciting stoppages. The opening bout saw Christian White (Terminator B.C.) defeat Daniel Caldera (Freddie’s B.C.) at 170-pounds. White was the aggressor and walked Caldera down throughout the fight, which gave the crowd some exciting action. Caldera’s corner retired in the second round following a barrage of punches from White.

  

 

Following that bout, Pat Brown (Downtown Y’town B.C.) defeated Christian Colon (Raul Torres B.C.) at 135-pounds. Brown landed some great right hooks throughout the fight, which left Colon bloodied. The fight was stopped in the second round, after the ringside physician stepped in and stopped it.

  


In the first female bout of the night, Eve Santiago (Health 360) took on Asia Smith (PAL/Thurgood B.C.) in a battle at 119-pounds. The tenacity of both fighters brought the crowd to their feet many times during the fight. But after the first round, Santiago began to take control by landing the cleaner shots. Santiago went on to win the fight by decision.

  


Then the crowd at the ballroom saw two fights in the 145-pound division. The first, pinned Rajiu Hernandez (Empire B.C.) against James Washington (Raul Torres B.C.). Washington, who had a substantial height advantage, was not able to stand the hard punching Hernandez. Hernandez scored standing 8-counts in the second and third rounds, before the ref stopped the fight.

  

 

After, Lucian Clinkscale (Downtown Y’town B.C.) dropped a close decision to Angel Figuerora (Freddie’s B.C.). The fight was well contested through two rounds, before Figuerora dominated in the third round, helping him earn the victory.

  

 

 

 

Main Card Bouts...

 

After a short five minute break, action resumed with five Main Card bouts. In the first bout, John Kutitus (Raul Torres B.C.) won by decision against David Frum (Terminator B.C.) at 178-pounds. The fight was action-packed and could have gone either way. It was a great effort by both fighters.

  

 

Then in the second female bout of the night, Ashley Barnett (Old School B.C.) outpointed Carrie Fiol (PC Torres/Warren B.C.) at 135-pounds. The fight was another close bout that could have gone either way.

  


In a 185-pound slugfest, Abdul Omar (Good Shepherd B.C.) was stopped by Brandon Radiwiec (Freddie’s B.C.) in the third round. Both fighters were big and strong, but it was Radiwiec scoring a knockdown on Omar after a big right hook. Omar made it to his feet, before the referee stopped the bout.

  

 

Then in a bout at 165-pounds, 2010 Cleveland Golden Gloves runner-up Matt Brown (Terminator B.C.) lost a hard fought, close decision to Dequilla Smith (PAL/Thurgood B.C.). In a good competitive boxing match, each fighter showed excellent skill and scored on many of the punches thrown.

  


In the final Main Card bout, Latiss Norman (Cory Fight Club) was stopped by Brian Park (West Side B.C.) in the third round. Park, a former Cleveland Golden Glove champion, controlled the fight by scoring two standing 8-counts before the ref stopped it.

  

 

 

 

Feature Bouts...

 

Then just after 10 PM the Feature bouts began. In the first of three bouts, Darren Rivera (Downtown Y’Town B.C.) took on Roher Canales (Raul Torres B.C.) in a battle at 180-pounds. Both fighters came out swinging, each scoring good shots. The crowd chanted throughout the fight and in one of the closest bouts of the night, Rivera won by a close decision.

  


In the second feature, Kenneth Brown (Cudell Rec.) took on former Cleveland Golden Glove champion Greg Gilbert (West Side B.C.) at 132-pounds. Brown came out extremely aggressive, putting Gilbert on the ground early in the first round. But Gilbert mounted a comeback in the second, landing numerous punches on the seemingly winded Brown. Brown and his corner retired after the second round, giving Gilbert the victory.

  


In the main event of the evening, Lauren Cooney (PAL/Thurgood) and Jessica Eye (Strong Style MMA) fought at 132-pounds for the Ohio Women’s Lightweight Championship. It was an exciting fight, as the MMA style of Eye and the boxing experience of Cooney made for a tremendous title bout. After three close rounds Jessica Eye was declared the winner by decision, to the roar of her loyal followers in the crowd. Jessica Eye is your new Ohio Women’s Lightweight champion.

  

 

  

 

‘Battle in the Ballroom’ was a fun night of amateur boxing action. Kincaid-Godhard Boxing Promotions put together quite the fight card, as each bout had something unique about it. It was tremendous matchmaking on their part. Be sure to attend Kincaid-Godhard Promotions’ next event in October 9.

Cleveland boxing returns this Saturday night at the Slovenian National Ballroom

May 3, 6:53 PM · Charles Indriolo - Cleveland Boxing Examiner

 

This Saturday night, May 8, amateur boxing returns to the Slovenian National 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 main event, 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 Cooney (PAL/Thurgood) at 132-pounds. Eye, the reigning women’s National Amateur Mixed Martial Arts champion, is undefeated as a fighter. Lauren Cooney 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 Radiwied (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.)
