Providence, RI (May 17, 2013)– Jimmy Burchfield’s CES put on another action packed boxing event at Twin River Casino in Rhode Island. For the main event we saw the females in action. Fan favorite Shelly “Shelito” Vincent of Providence, Rhode Island vs. Angel Gladney of Columbia, South Carolina.
Fighting 8 rounds in front of all her fans for the vacant WIBA Women’s International Boxing Association International Bantamweight title. Round 1both came out strong. Towards the end of the round Gladney landed lefts and rights and continuing the jabs by backing up Vincent. Round 3, 4 and 5 Both Vincent and Gladney tossed around combinations but Vincent landed the better and quality combos. At one point in Round 4, Gladney slipped but not a knock down. Round 6 continuing much of the same action. Right before the end up the round, Vincent landed a great uppercut and staggered Gladney’s head back. Round 7 Vincent landed a left hook and brought Gladney to the canvas. Round 8 Same action while fans were on their feet while cheering “Shelly”.
Both fighters were both jackrabbits in the ring, not a ton of defense. There were so many punches thrown by both opponents that you’d wonder if they’d punch themselves out.
