IN BROOMFIELD -
by Pancrase USA and World Super Fights
Will Hendricks, Sven Bean
Promoters, fighters, and fans anxiously waited out the rain Saturday
night at the Broomfield Swim and Tennis Club for the first ever "Brawl
in Broomfield." They were generously rewarded as some of
the most exciting, hard fought and extremely well matched bouts took
place that night.
The crowd got to see a little bit of everything from
boxing to ultimate style fighting. Every competitor (bar none!) gave a
100% effort and it showed.
IKF referee Cecil Peoples
who was referee for the Kickboxing portion of the card was quoted as
saying "What a great show!...these guys could fight
anywhere....I am glad to be a part of this!" A pretty big
statement since Sensei Peoples has been referee for such events
as the "World Combat Championships" and numerous
World Title bouts with the likes of Don "The Dragon"
Wilson, Rick Roufus, and Maurice Smith.
Fighters from all
over the western region came to compete. A few bouts had to be
reworked because of a no show from the Round One Team out of Carlsbad,
New Mexico.. but other than that the card went well. The rain delay
was quickly forgotten and the night was an incredible success for
Bout #1 - Boxing,
