Iowa Fight Update

Wow…Friday was a ridiculous series of unfortunate events for our new fighters and here is the rundown:

* Michael Sullivan in his very first fight went all 3 rounds with an opponent and lost to a split decision.

* Colin Sullivan in his first fight faced a much more experienced opponent and was illegally elbowed to the back of the head, but was unable to continue on to the next bracket.

* Geoffrey Rutherford suffered from an asthma attack in the middle of the third round and had to stop his fight immediately to seek medical attention

* Chris in his first fight was illegally kneed to the face while having his head held and couldn’t continue on to the next bracket

* Dennis won in his prelims on Friday. In the semi-finals on Saturday he dislocated his left shoulder seconds into the first round but ground his opponent out and still won his semi-final match. He now competes on Sunday for the TBA belt!

We are extremely proud of all of our athletes with most of them hopping into a ring to compete for the very first time. We can’t wait to see how their apply the lessons from the weekend into the next step of their learning!

Don’t forget to log on to see the finals and Dennis competing for the belt tomorrow! They start at 10am your time!!
