By Michael Sheffield At Ringside,

The 2010 finale of PrizeFight Boxing’s Fights at the Fitz series ended with crowd-pleasing rematch of female lightweights that easily surpassed the excitement of the original fight. Both fighters would put on impressive performances for former heavyweight champion, Michael Moorer, who was providing color commentary for the fight’s television broadcast and former middleweight champion Jermain Taylor, who was in attendance.

The 8-round main event between Nicole Woods (11-7-1 3 KOs) and Kim Connor (6-1-2 3 KOs) was the sequel to a draw between the two women from January 30, 2010.

Connor, who was easily the crowd favorite, would stand toe to toe with the taller and more powerful Woods, and the two fighters didn’t disappoint the sellout crowd. From the opening bell until the final bell, Woods and Connor took turns trading hard shots, with some landing even after the bell.

The action began with both fighters trading throughout the early rounds. However, Woods repeatedly was caught holding on to Connor’s right hand whenever she threw a jab. It would take 5 rounds for referee Randy Phillips to warn Woods.

World ranked fighters such as Fernando Guerrero, Shawn Porter, Lamont & Anthony Peterson and many more have see their careers blossom at “Fights At The Fitz”. This coming Saturday, July 24th should be no different as top lightweight prospects Ty Barnett and Tyrese Hendrix will meet in an 8 round battle with future title implications at stake.

Johnson vs. Brown at the Electric Cowboy!

New Main Event for “Knockout Night of Fights” Card

There will be a change in the main event of Bad Boy Promotions & Electric Cowboy May 6 “A Night of Knockout Fights” card in Little Rock. Originally we had Bobby Bryant as the main event, but due to some issues with the athletic commission we were unable to get Bobby approved to fight on the card, so we looked to put Justin Ridgway vs. Derek Amos in a cruiserweight bout as the main event, however that fight has been scratched.

The new main event will be Little Rock’s own heavyweight Randy Johnson squaring off with 6’2” 220 lb Nick “Bad News” Brown of Baton Rouge, La. This is a bout where we have 2 big men and can almost assure a devastating knockout; Randy has a record of 3-2 as a professional and has fought out of the ABC Gym for years now and has trained with the likes of Jermaine Taylor, Terry Smith and other pro fighters who have made a name for themselves and fought for world titles which Randy hopes to do some day.

Nick brown on the other hand started his career off with a loss, but is now training out of the Gladiator Gym in Baton Rouge, La and has high hopes of coming away with a victory and turning his career around.

There will be many other exiting bouts on the card as well including undefeated light heavyweight prospect Sherman Guy in the toughest bout of his career against Nashville, TN’s James Jones, we will also see the hard hitting southpaw Hunter Limbaugh from Batesville, Ar and we will see crowd pleasing welterweight Caleb Turpitt out of Sherridan, Ar returning to the ring.

There will be a minimum of six bouts and we will have a special guest from the Contender Season 1 making a special appearance as well. Don’t miss out tickets are now on sale at the Electric Cowboy or by calling (501)562-6000. Must be 21 years or older to enter the Electric Cowboy.
