Weekend Scorecard: Cave dazzles Ontario crowd, Germain and Kean win big in Quebec, Roy Jones Jr. retires on a win in P-Cola!

Lee Baxter Promotions – 17 Steakhouse, Mississauga, Ontario

In the main event of Lee Baxter Promotions’ Saturday night gala in Mississauga, ‘The Prince of Hali’ Tyson Cave brought his pugulistic prowess to 17 Steakhouse before a capacity crowd of eager onlookers. Cave pounded out an eight round unanimous decision over Mexico’s Ulises Perez to move to 31-3 as a professional.

Other noteable bouts on the card included lightweight Alex Dilmaghani stopping Andy Almendras in three rounds as well as Kevin Higson scoring a six round unanimous decision over Sergio Castellano.

Eye of the Tiger Management – Centre Gervais Auto, Shawinigan, Quebec

In a compelling battle of Eastern vs. Western Canada, Quebec’s Mathieu Germain TKO’d Alberta’s Cam O’Connell in Round 8. Good scrap but Germain too big and strong. Valiant effort from a gutsy O’Connell who was moving up in weight and coming across the country. Good win for G-Time and full credit to Eye of the Tiger Management for always putting their fighters in with tough tests. Great for boxing

In the main event of the evening, Quebec heavyweight Simon Kean stopped Alexis Santos in Round 8 of a good scrap. Kean was in control most of the way but Santos got up from two knockdowns mid way through the fight to give Kean some trouble down the stretch. Good rebound from Kean to score an emphatic stoppage in Round 8 to seal the win. More talk of a Kean-Adam Braidwood showdown was bantered about post-fight.

In a co-featured bout, Steven ‘Bang Bang’ Butler picked up another win scoring an exciting first round KO of Uriel Gonzalez.

Other fighters picking up wins were Jordan Balmir, Clovis Drolet, Kim Clavel, Vincent Thibault, Francois Bernard and Raphael Courchesne.

In what he claims will be his last professional fight, the legendary Roy Jones Jr. (66-9, 47 KOs) went the ten round distance with journeyman Scott Sigmon (30-12-1, 16 KOs) in a cruiserweight bout Thursday night at the Bay Center in Pensacola, Florida. If he sticks to his word RJJ hangs em up at 49 years old after a storied career. Congrats Roy!
