First Council Casino, catBOX Entertainment and C3 Fights presented a great night of professional boxing to a packed house under the all new EvenTTent at First Council Casino in Newkirk, Oklahoma on Friday, March 13, 2009.
Among the victors of the seven scheduled bouts at First Council were Oklahoma superstars Native American Boxing Council Super Middleweight Champion George “Comanche Boy” Tahdooahnipah and Oklahoma Lightweight Champion Noah Zuhdi.
In the main event, Tahdooahnipah won by KO in the sixth round over veteran Jerry Perez of Rosenberg, Texas. Perez was game but "Comanche Boy" had too much fire power and was too skilled for Perez.
Comanche Boy gave Perez a pounding in every round. Fight fans are eagerly looking forward to Comanche Boy’s next fight. Notch this one up to another exciting performance by Tahdooahnipah, who now sports an impressive 18-0 record.
Oklahoma Lightweight Champion Zuhdi easily won in a completely dominating performance over James McClure of Paris, AR. Zuhdi knocked McClure down three times, once in the first round, a second in the fifth round knocking McClure through the ropes with a right uppercut followed by a devastating left hook, and then again in the sixth round when the fight was won by Zuhdi by TKO.
Zuhdi had won all the rounds by a wide margin up to the stoppage in round six. McClure came in well over the weight limit at a weight of 147.5 for a lightweight fight of 135 pounds. Zuhdi came in at 135 but wanted to fight and agreed to fight McClure despite McClure’s weight over the lightweight limit. Zuhdi’s easy triumph over McClure by TKO upped Zuhdi’s undefeated record to 7-0, with seven knockouts.
NABA US Light Middleweight Carson Jones won by TKO over Mike McGuire. Jones clearly outclassed McGuire.
Former University of Oklahoma football player Gary Townsend defeated Zack McMillen in a first round knockout in their heavyweight fight. Light heavyweight Terrance Jones won a majority decision over Sam Norwood.
Other scheduled bouts included Ron Aubrey, from Oklahoma City, formerly an Oklahoma City Blazer’s hockey player. Aubrey scored a second round knockout over John Fish of Guymon, Oklahoma. Alfredo Berto of Houston, Texas knocked out Yon Harrison, Moore, Oklahoma in a bantamweight battle.
The sensational fight card promoted by catBOX Entertainment and C3 Fights was the first of its kind under the all new EvenTTent. Known as the eighth wonder of the entertainment world, the EvenTTent delivered as promised as the perfect venue for professional boxing.
