MARCH FITZ REPORT

Four back-to-back first-round knockouts were bookended by two four-rounders that went the distance at the latest Fights at the Fitz at Fitzgerald’s Hotel & Casino on March 24 in Tunica, Mississippi. The enthusiastic crowd was treated to plenty of action with fighters from both coasts and regional fan-favorites duking it out–frequently to devastating conclusions.

In the opening junior middleweight bout, John Thompson from Newark, New Jersey, displayed a cracking jab from the opening bell, which he used in tandem with uppercuts to the body to dominate Los Angeles-based Bryan Brooks in a one-sided battle. The lunging, off-balance Brooks landed in the single digits in each of the four rounds, and Thompson’s jabs did more damage than Brooks’ best shots, leading the three judges–Gerald Deming, Reccia Mullins and Mack Thornton–to score all four rounds for Thompson, 40-36.

Report & Interviews

Fighter Q&A’s by Tracy Morin

After a three month absence, Prize Fight’s Fights at the Fitz made its return to Tunica with a 5-fight card featuring promising newcomer Dusty Harrison.

The evening marked Prize Fight’s 92nd straight sellout at The Fitz, an accomplishment that has stretched over the last seven years. With any
luck, Prize Fight will have sellout number 93 during the next event October 1.

Dusty Harrison vs. Trenton Titsworth

Harrison (1-0), who stole the show during June’s TNT at the DCC event in Southaven would make his Fitz debut against Trenton Titsworth, who had at least a six inch height advantage. Harrison would show a desire to mix it up early with the rail thin Titsworth (who weighed in at 123 pounds, which was debatable).

Titsworth proved he can take a punch, as Harrison would land several hard jabs. However, the effectiveness of the punches may have been tempered by the fact that Harrison had to reach up to hit his opponent. Titsworth resorted to holding Harrison halfway through the fight, and that strategy would allow him to survive the fight and deprive Harrison of his first knockout, even though he clearly had his opponent in trouble quite a few times. Harrison would take a unanimous decision, 40-36.
