BRANTFORD — Saturday night’s boxing show billed Black Eye Warrior Night featured three Six Nations fighters in a 7 bout card.

Six Nations’ Carl “The Razor” Hess scored a TKO in the third round over Burlington’s John Nash at the Brantford Curling Club Saturday night. Hess, along with Jake Martin and young Ricki Miller are all from Six Nations and members of the Black Eye Boxing Club.

Hess inflicted a lot of damage to Nash’s body but took a lot of hits himself in the first round, which was a draw, but this reporter saw it with Hess slightly ahead getting in more damaging shots.

In the second, Hess continued his body assault, which slowed his opponent down considerably and brought about a standing eight count.

In the third round, Hess caught Nash with a left, which drew another standing eight count. When the fight resumed, He finished his man off with a hard left hook, earning Hess a TKO win awarded by the ring referee.

About half of the 300 people in attendance were there to support their Six Nations friends and relatives in the ring.

Jake Martin’s scheduled opponent dropped out three days before the event and so Martin was matched up with a fighter above his weight class and ring appearance to fill the spot on the card. Since it was a mismatch of size and experience, the fight was deemed as an exhibition and therefore will not reflect on his career stats.

Despite the mismatch, Martin stood well against his opponent for all three rounds. No winner was determined.

Fifteen-year-old Ricki Miller was matched up with a fighter that beat her for the Gold at the Hershey Centre a couple of weeks earlier. According to coach Jackie Armour, “the decision could have gone either way, and Ricki made it a very close fight.” As it was, the decision went against Miller.

The host Black Eye Club won three bouts in addition to Jake Martin’s exhibition bout. Black Eye hosts a fight card every spring and fall but participates in other boxing club cards year round.
