Thank you so much for the overwhelming response! Wow! Unbelievable is what our event was! I said earlier that we had both sides of the Civic Center, well thank God for that; as we were near maximum capacity! I would like to thank the Rayne auxilary police as well as the inmate trustee's for their relentless work! I give this show 5 stars and everyone I spoke to say the same! To every single fan in attendance, THANK YOU!! No way we can move any further without YOU being there! Thank you so much!
Opening our night was Bailey Bobbitt, remember? He was supposed to fight Mr. Ernest Parfait? Parfait was in a car accident in Hammond, La. and was unable to fight, even better Parfait had his protege' take the fight. This guy, he has no fights, but he can fight(that's what Parfait said)! I think: Bailey has no fights either, let them fight! Bailey works too hard, too much determination and is in way too good of condition. Bailey Bobbitt beat the frame out of this boy! I think I seen dust fly out of this guy! The beating was called to a halt at 1:05 of the very first round! Bailey is 1 win 0 losses with 1 ko!
I said this and now you have seen exactly what I meant! I said Jessie Patin and Tyrone Dowdy may be the most exciting fight of the night! It had drama! It had suspence! It had HARD HITTING! Fight starts, and they are working, Jessie catches Dowdy with a good right hand, then drops his left before throwing the hook, Dowdy slung a right hand….down goes Patin! Patin looked directly at me(Chad) saying man he @*+#@^* caught me! I look at him and tell him to just move around, let's get out of this round. Never mind what I think, Jessie goes right back at him! Jessie throws, Dowdy throws and Patin goes down again! Well at this time I look at him and said, please for the love of God run, stay away, survive the round! Finally in the longest round; the bell rings, Jessie sits down and I ask him, where are you right now? He told me exactly where he was! I knew we were still in the fight! Second round Jessie hit Dowdy several times as Dowdy hit Jessie several times, we escaped the round without being dropped nor getting banged up! Round 3, Jessie takes total control of the fight and beat Dowdy from pillar to post, dropping Dowdy 3 times in just 1:40 of the 3rd round, Jessie showed heart, determination and the will to WIN!!. Jessie moves to 3-1-3ko's
Todd Manuel boxed the ever so tough and determined William "Pete" Johnson, Todd did well in spots but mostly he continuosly smothered his opportunity to shine, like I know he is capable of, making for a tougher fight then it should have been! Todd controlled the fight and won every round. With the win Todd moves to 2-0! Personally, I think Todd posesses an unbelievable amount of talent, I look forward to the day Todd Manuel gets serious and digs down and fights with all he has!! Over all it was a good learning fight and a job well done!
In the 4th fight of the night, the fans had the opportunity to witness the return of Jarred "The Lethal Weapon" Leblanc. Jarred fought Rohan Nanton from the Virgin Islands by way of Brooklyn, New York! Jarred Leblanc fought an absolute superb fight! I will go out on a limb and say, this was the best fight Jarred ever fought in his life. Looked like a well seasoned professional fighter! Calm, confident and well poised Jarred came out behind a sharp crisp jab, moving his head left to right looking for the perfect opportunity to impose his will upon Nanton. Opportunity knocked and Jarred rang Nanton's bell; with a right hand, this time Jarred was still calm as he continued to show ring generalship, controlling the entire fight, looking while jabbing Jarred hit him with some good shots but never got carried away, after being hit several times with flush shots, Nanton was not exactly where he wanted to be, so a complaint about his wrist, or arm, or shoulder, or maybe it was "The Lethal Weapons" right hand. yeah! I think that was it! He wanted no more of Jarred as he quit in the second round! Jarred moves to 12-0-8ko's. Jarred wore replica New Orleans Saints shorts with a #9 Drew Brees jersey! Very Impressive all the way around ecspecially with the growth we have witnessed over the past couple months!
Bobby "The Prodigy" Bryant hit Richard Dinkins so many times that I had a headache, I was in the dressing room so I did not see much but what I did see was an beating! Dinkins hung tough and showed the heart of a warrior but in the end it was ALL Bryant! With this win Bryant moves to 3-0-2ko's
In the main event of the evening; Rock Hard "Mighty" Mason Menard vs. Thomas Dardar, at stake the Louisiana Lightweight Title….I think Mason fought an incredible fight, he never got carried away, never dropped his hands, very sharp with pin-point accuracy. Dardar is all HEART, brings it to you 100%, all the time, I knew our motor skills were better, and we were alot faster, so I used what we had to our advantage. Dardar and his trainer had every intention on winning this belt. I knew we were gonna be there a while but I also knew that the fight was ours, all we had to do was go out there and get it! Mason hit Dardar with some brutal left hooks and body shots all the while slowing him down. Dardar would visit the canvas 3 times only to come back up and continue fighting. After the 4th round Dardar's corner had seen enough and stopped the fight! I take my hat off to Kennedy Mckinney, Damien St.Pierre and of course Thomas Dardar. With the win Mason goes to 10-1-8ko's.
I would also like to thank every single man,woman and child that were at the fights, thank you so very, very much, it is my honor to have such wonderful people surround us. I hope we can ALL come together and work as a team, as I see very big things coming our way, and what an honor it will be to share in "our" dream with you, our fans! I would like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing me to be here with every single fighter on "our" team! Praise God for the opportunity I have been given! Thanks, and hope we get to see you again, soon
