DING! DING! DING!
And the winner is...Not RDukes.
First of all let me start by saying that his bout was probably the most evenly matched of the night. It seems as though the academy that sponsored the event has a predilection to mismatch their opponents if given the opportunity. There were several lame ass matches between 7 year old precious snowflakes which served no point but to make me wish I was drinking. The other bouts were paired by selecting a guy that obviously had practiced with some jackass that had just signed up. This was never more apparent then during one of the first boxing matches when the blue corner opened up with a flurry of punches somewhat reminiscent of a gran mal seizure. Needless to say this guy got beat. Nawsome for him good for the guy who won.
Now we get to the reason behind this post. If we ignore the ring announcer mispronounce the name of our fighter and move on overall the bout went real well. Although he was caught with 1 good punch 25 seconds in the rest of the 2 round bout went very well. Both of the fighters were well paced and evenly matched for this exhibition. In watching the replay of the bout there were some irregularities in the time management but neither fighter complained.
In the end it came to a split decision in favor of the opponent. So as it stands bad guys 1, good guys 0.
Lets just say that the win was theved.
