BRANTFORD – Six Nations boxer Cher Obediah-Hill won another unanimous decision over Emma James in the main-event of a 10-bout boxing card organized and hosted by Jackie Armor and Brantford’s Black-Eye-Boxing Club, Saturday night at the Brantford Curling Club.

Obediah-Blasdell won the unanimous decision over Emma James, a fighter she knows well. The two have faced off four times now and Obediah-Blasdell has come out the winner each time, including at the Ontario Provincials in Mississauga where she won Gold over James.

Cher’s training mantra is “stay motivated, stay focused,” and that is exactly what she did all night, not giving James an inch through all four rounds.

It was the first time she has fought in front of a home crowd and she loved it.

“I just wanna thank my Six Nations and Brantford fans for coming out tonight,” she told the Two Row Times after the fight. “I love fighting at home and having my supporters out. It was great to fight so close to home and I’m glad I could put on a show for all the people.”

And what a show she put on, taking charge of every round against James.

“I felt I was in full control all night,” she said in retrospect. “Maybe I could have been a little busier, I guess, but I was trying to give the crowd a show too.”

Armor thought his boxer was outstanding, and maybe the best he has seem her.

“Emma hung in there tough,” he said. “She tried to throw combinations back at Cher but Cher was already gone and changed her angles. She was right on cue. She would come up with five-six-seven punch combinations. It was one of her better fights. I have it on tape and watched it a few times to try and find some mistakes we can improve on, but there weren’t many.”

The event was the first boxing card the club has promoted in more than two years, but it will not be the last.

“It was a very successful night of boxing entertainment,” said a tired but excited Armor. He had six fighters from the club on the card, which he had to deal with as well as the logistics of running the event itself.

“Everything went off without a hitch and we’ll take all the experience from this event, look at the positives and negatives and start planning the next one,” he says.

“We are definitely going to book spring and fall events at the Curling club,” he says. “It’s a great venue. I think we’ll run in April and again in August.”
