The 2015 Junior Canadian National Championships is in full swing with exciting fights, and TKOs to be had in several fights that turned into shootouts. The multi-day tournament has been a staple of Junior Canadian boxing for years and brings the whole country of Canada together to celebrate these young boxers fulfilling their dreams inside the squared circle. As the tournament winds down, the championships are now in sight and in play for several divisions and these boxers step into the ring looking to prove that they deserve the title of Champion. The only way to see this great series or individual event is to order it at GFL.tv.

The seventh session of the series was highlighted by 8 punishing bouts. These young boxers came to fight and displayed both skill and determination in the squared circle as some fulfilled their lifelong dreams of winning titles, while others continued to advance in the tournament.

In the main event, Wyatt Sanford of Nova Scotia defeated Hassan Omar of Quebec via decision in a 64kg Youth division battle. Sanford was able to match the punching power and accuracy of Omar and take it up a notch as he took the lead and never let his foot off the gas hitting Omar with solid overhand lefts, crosses and hooks. Sanford fought at a frenetic pace and Omar could not keep up with the style of fighting that Sanford implemented in the fight. It was a big win for Sanford as he dominated a very tough opponent in Omar.

In the co-main event, Hunter Lee of Ontario defeated Spencer Olin Lee of British Columbia via unanimous decision in a 63kg Junior division bout. This was a hotly contested bout as both Hunter Lee and Spencer Olin Lee went for broke from the very beginning. Hunter Lee was more polished as a boxer and had the technical advantage as he was able to land punches and stay out of the power punching range of Spencer Olin Lee. Hunter Lee did an excellent job of staying out of the range of Spencer Olin Lee, who earlier in the tournament scored a first round TKO. Both of these young boxers should be proud of their performance as they left it all in the ring.

In the main event, Tanvir Kahlon of Ontario defeated Ryan Sanford of Newfoundland and Labrador via unanimous decision in a 69kg Youth division battle. Kahlon proved difficult for Sanford to hit as Kahlon was slick on his feet and able to dodge the oncoming attacks of Sanford while scoring with quick combos of his own. Kahlon’s best weapon was his jab and cross as he peppered those punches in the direction of Sanford all night. Sanford showed true grit and determination, but on this night, Kahlon was dominant.

In the co-main event, Logan Fairgrieve of Alberta defeated Ulysse Lalanne of Quebec via unanimous decision in a 69kg Youth division bout. Fairgrieve showed off an aggressive style that overwhelmed Lalanne throughout the fight. Fairgrieve and Kahlon are now on a collision course to face each other in the 69kg Youth Division. It should be a barnburner.

The fifth session of the series was highlighted by 12 grueling bouts. All were close as these young boxers came to fight and displayed both skill and determination in the squared circle.

In the main event, the heavy hitters were on display when in an 80+kg, David Aube of Quebec defeated Dawson Gosse of Newfoundland to win the Championship via TKO in the second round. Both of these young men were heavy hitters and landed some solid leather on one another in the early going. Aube continued his pace for the full fight and was teeing off on Gosse in the later rounds. Aube used his size and range to score with solid combos over and over again, as he wore down the gritty Gosse.

In the co-main event, Lexson Mathieu of Quebec defeated Blake Shea of Newfoundland and Labrador in an 80kg bout. The southpaw Mathieu proved difficult for Shea to hit and Mathieu was dominant in score with quick jabs and straight left hands while keeping out of the range of Shea who was looking for that one big punch that never landed. Mathieu showed both precision and power in this championship bout.

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents BAMMA USA Badbeat 14 on TCN & CSN Comcast Beginning January 26

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)
GFL PRESENTS “BAMMA USA: BADBEAT 14” BEGINNING JANUARY 26

January 23, 2015

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as BAMMA USA presents another show stopper with Badbeat 14, featuring a full lineup of extreme cage fights emanating from the Commerce Casino in Commerce, California.

In the main event, Greg Parker (4-0) battles Andrew Ramm (2-0) in a welterweight clash. Parker is undefeated and has won all of his fights inside of two rounds. Parker is a strong wrestler with a solid grappling game, having defeated 3 of his 4 opponents via tapout. Look for Parker to use his strength and size to try and out muscle Ramm in the clinch and on the mat. Ramm has had a successful amateur and pro career and is also a decorated grappler earning tapout wins in a majority of his pro/am fights. Ramm is very confident on the ground and goes for submission after submission, continually setting up his next move. If the fight hits the mat, it will be a chess match between the power of Parker and the elusiveness of Ramm.

In the co-main event, Mike Jasper (7-2) battles Justin Vazquez (4-6). Jasper is a quick starter having 6 of his 7 wins come before the final bell. Jasper’s only 2 losses have come via decision. Look for Jasper to come out aggressive with his striking and takedowns. Vazquez is taking the fight on short notice and has nothing to lose in this fight. Vazquez is a gritty, durable fighter who is looking to pull the upset. Vazquez will need to let his hands go and meet the intensity of Jasper.

The Comcast Network: (Mid Atlantic): Monday, January 26 at 7:00pm ET

In the main event, the heavy hitters were on display when in the Finals of the Youth 75kg division, Jake Daoust of Ontario defeated Thomas Johnston of Saskatchewan via TKO in the second round. Daoust showed off a strong all-around game as he was able to tag Johnston with hard counters including left hooks and over hand rights, but also able to get off first with a thumping jab. Daoust was strong and didn’t let his foot off the gas the whole fight as he proved to be too much for the durable Johnston who just couldn’t find his range as he was overcome by the aggression and punching power of Daoust.

In the co-main event, Hassan Omar of Quebec defeated Daniel Ryan of Ontario in a 64kg bout via split decision. Ryan was the aggressor, continually coming forward and trying to connect. Omar did a nice job of being elusive and making Ryan miss, while responding with counter punches. Ryan continued to come forward and showed off his willingness to mix it up, but Omar showed off his defense by evading many of the punches and firing back with punches of his own in a technical match that broke down into a brawl in the final minute of the fight.

The 2015 Junior Canadian National Championships is in full swing with several boxers scoring one-sided wins, TKOs, and back and forth shootouts.

10 bouts kicked off this third session. All were highly contested as these young boxers showed off their skill and determination in the squared circle.

In the main event, Tanvir Kelly of Ontario defeated Eitan El Maleh of Quebec via decision 2-1 in the 69kg Youth division. This fight was one of the most competitive bouts of the evening as Kelly and El Maleh went back and forth over 3 competitive rounds. These fighters were throwing some heavy leather at one another and neither fighter backed down. Kelly mixed up his shots well and was able to offset the aggressiveness of El Maleh by using a strong jab and overhand combos. The 1-2 combination paid dividends throughout the fight as it scored for Kelly and kept him away from most of El Maleh’s power punching.

Xavier Gagnon of Quebec defeated Thomas Foster of Nova Scotia via TKO in the second round in a 60kg Youth division bout. The pinpoint accuracy of Gagnon was too much over the course of the two rounds and it finally paid dividends when Gagnon scored the final blows of the fight in a great bout by both men. Gagnon has to be one of the favorites in the 60kg division after this performance.

In other action, Calum Bowie of Ontario defeated Zack Kearley of Ontario via unanimous decision in a 46kg Junior division bout.

In the co-main event, Anthony Cote of Quebec defeated Morwat Shirkan of Alberta via TKO in the third round in a great back and forth scrap. Cote picked his spots and scored with precision while Shirkan continued to come forward and throw punches with bad intentions. Cote used great head movement to stay out of harm’s way as he was able to pull out the victory which came down to the third and final round.
