TACOMA, WA — San Francisco, California’s Johnathan Chicas (15-2, 7 KOs) added his second consecutive win since coming back from an eighteen month long hiatus on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. Fighting in the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 106, Chicas overcame a bad late-round cut and the long-ranged attack of Vancouver, Washington’s Virgil “Black Mamba” Green (11-5, 4 KOs) to edge out a close ten round unanimous decision victory.

After a tentative first round in which both fighters fought at a measured pace, seemingly gauging what the other’s approach would be, Chicas began to come on in the second, closing the distance and unloading with effective overhand rights in close. Both fighters traded momentum in the third round with Green trying to establish his jab and find openings for his long right hand, while Chicas kept up the pressure and found success late in the round with thudding left-right hook combos.

What was to be a showcase night for up and coming Northwest heavyweight prospect “Vicious” Vincent Thompson turned into a tougher than expected assignment against journeyman Giovanni Sarran last Saturday night at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Fighting in front of a packed house of local fans and headlining Roy Englebrecht’s Fight Night Club, Thompson had to work to earn his victory over his resilient opponent, boxing his way to a hard-earned six round unanimous decision victory.

From the outset of the bout it was clear that Thompson (13-0 2KO’s 243lbs.) looked to impose his will over his opponent and end matters quickly. As the first bell sounded, he quickly rushed Sarran (3-5 1KO 229 lbs.) and unloaded with hard power shots to the head and body, pushing him back and punishing him along the ropes. For three minutes Thompson battered Sarran, hurting him on several occasions and seemingly having him on the verge of a stoppage. Nearing the end of the round, Thompson cornered Sarran, prompting the referee to issue a standing eight-count when a barrage of punches had him sitting on the ropes to avoid the onslaught. As the first round came to a close the overwhelming consensus among ringside observers was that the fight would not go much longer. (continue reading…)
