SIX NATIONS – Six Nation boxer, Karl “The Razor” Hess has the target in mind of turning pro in the not too distant future, and he is mowing down anyone standing in his way.
Saturday night, July 16th in Goderich, “The Razor” scored a unanimous decision win over Toronto’s Tom Hawthorne.
Having faced Hawthorne before, Hess and coach Jackie Armour designed a fight plan to exploit Hawthorne’s weaknesses and avoid his strengths.
Hess went for the body in the first round and according to Armour won the round decisively. In the second round he opened it up a bit more with a head and body assault and continued his assault to take the decision.
Fighting under the banner of Brantford’s Black Eye Boxing Club, Hess is a late-comer to the ring. At 23-years-old, Hess has exhibited an exceptional amount of ring-savvy. His body is mature and in it’s prime and even without a lot of formal training, Armour, has worked Hess into a first class fighter in a relatively short time.
Armour of Brantford’s Black Eye Boxing club will be showcasing his Six Nations boxers August 27th at the Brantford Curling Club at 34 Morrell Street in Holmdale, Brantford, in an event named, Black Eye Warriors night.
There will be several bouts on the card in a number of weight classes but the feature events will include three Six Nations fighters. Karl Hess (7-1), Jake Martin (6-2+1 exhibition), and the debut bout of 14-year-old Ricki Martin.
“I am still looking for an opponent for Ricki,” says Armour. “She has been with me for about year now and I think it’s about time we get her into the ring.”
Armour is finalizing other bouts to be included on the fight card but promises 8-10 bouts.
Black Eye’s last fight night at the Curling Club went extremely well and drew a good audience. Armour is hoping to see as many Six Nations fight fans as possible to cheer on their home grown fighters.
