Late Breaking

Results from Cleveland

The Ballroom was dancing Saturday night ,not with feet but with fists, as Kinkaid & Goddard Promotions presented The Battle in the Ballroom. A capacity crowd was treated to 13 exciting amateur bouts with the main event leaving the crowd cheering for more as Jessica Eye (Strong Style MMA) captured the Ohio Women’s Lightweight Title with a decision over Lauren Coney (PAL / Thurogood BC). Both women had their shining moments throughout the contest but it was Eye who stuck to her game plan and wore down the aggressive Coney. Eye, a crowd favorite, is easily making the transition from MMA to Boxing as she has yet to be defeated in either arena of combat.
