Almost all of the twelve bouts were exciting and competitive, with two participants being carted off to the hospital in an ambulance. Here’s how the fights went down.
Bout#1 – Woodward’s Jarrett Walden (149#) gave a good account of himself but lost a three round split decision to Vici Oklahoma’s Jared Francis (159#)
Bout#2 – Woodward’s Skyler Hanna (172#) bit the dust in 1:50 of round one when the heavy punching of Alva Oklahoma’s Tyler French (166#) put him on his back and had him tapping out.
Bout#3 – This one was “short-and-sweet” when El Reno Oklahoma’s Jake Burton (152#) K.O.ed Woodward’s Lynard Madera (142#) in 15 seconds of round one. Burton was on the canvas for several minutes before recovering.
Bout#4 – This was a good, hard fought three round split decistion . Two judges called the fight 29/28 for Marshall Oklahoma’s Joby Sellers (160#) with the third judge going for Dallas Texas’ Donnie Bedore (158#) 29/28. That’s how close the fight was.
Bout#5 – Tulsa Oklahoma’s Gerit Smith (149#) had Woodwards’s Frankie Chandler (145#) tapping out in 34 seconds of round one with a vicious “rear-necked-choke”.
Bout#6 – This was another close one with Fairfax Oklahoma’s Josh Hutchison (173#) Squeeking out a split, three round decision over Clinton Oklahoma’s John Barron (171#). This would make a greast rematch.
Bout #7 – This was another vicious first round stoppage. In just 16 seconds of round one Woodward’s Jimmy Treece (190#) threw a wicked right hand and dropped Norman Oklahoma’s Jeff Chilvers (180#) flat on his back. It appeared that Chilvers was knocked out before he hit the canvas. Treece however, dropped on top of him and delivered a couple more hard head shots before the referee could stop it. After several minutes on the canvas, the doctors decided Chilvers need to go to the hospital.
Bout#8 – We barely had time for the ambulance to return to the Fair Barn when another vicious first round knockout took place. Sixteen seconds into the round Vinita Oklahoma’s Bryle Martin (135#) picked Woodwards’s Michael Hoskins (128#) up high, in the air, and dropped him on the canvas, on his head. Hoskins also had to be taken to the hispital. The word was these two “had-words” back in the dressing room before they came out. All I can say about that is “you don’t want make Martin mad”.
Bout#9 – This bout was for the “State 205# Amateur Title” and ended up going the distance with Pryor Oklahoma’s David Neito (203#) winnng a hard fought three round decision over Woodward’s Ethan Nance (206#). Let’s have a rematch.
Bout#10 – This was a “smokin- good” fight while it lasted. It ended in 3:25 of round one with Laverne Oklahoma’s Sterling Lenz (142#) submitting Cleveland Oklahoma’s Cameron Cady (137#) with a beautiful ‘rear-necked-choke”.
Bout#11 – This was a “girl-fight” with Fayettevilles Arkansas’ Ruth Perkins (133#) winning in 1:22 of round one over Woodward’s Cheyenne Colvin (127#) with a wicked “arm-bar”.
Bout#12 – This was for the ‘State 155# professional title. It ended in 2:45 of round one with Midwest City Oklahoma’s Kyle Sjafiroudden (155#) choking out Vinita Oklahoma’s Chris Barnes (155#).
