Motor City Records A "Shutout" In Windsor
6 Motor City Boxers travelled to Windsor on the 12th of May to participate in a club show being put on by Border City Boxing Club. It was a very good day for Motor City Team, as we returned to Oshawa undefeated.

First up was Lucas "Cool Hands" Caride, who fought in a rematch against Adam Charlton of the East Windsor boxing club. The 2 met previously in the gold medal round at this year's Ray McGibbon's Gloves tournament in St Catharine's with Caride taking home the gold. Charlton was hungry to get revenge in front of his hometown fans, but he couldn't pull it off, as "Cool Hands" dominated all 3 rounds & walked away with a split decision.

Up next was Kyle "TNT" Wright, who had an exhibition match against Kevin "Bam Bam" Guenette of Windsor. Everyone in attendance soon came to realize why the hometown fighter would not take an open bout with Wright, as TNT easily penetrated Bam Bam's defense and controlled the pace of the entire match.

The 3rd bout saw Colin Fish face last year's Canadian Champ, Steve Franjic, of Orangeville. This was a good tuneup for Fish, who will be travelling to Germany next week, competing in the prestigious "Brandenburg Cup"as a member of Team Canada.

"Dangerous" Johnny Rill faced off against Cameron Depaola of East Windsor in bout number 4. This intense bout saw lots of heavy punches, but Rill easily walked away with a unanimous decision.

In another exhibition bout, Jerome Gabriel squared off against top-ranked American Boxer Domonique Dolton, of Detroit's Kronk Boxing Club. Jerome will also be heading to Germany next week, and his performance in this tune-up bout proved that he deserves to be competing on the international scene.

In the co-main event of the evening, Frankie Rill duked it out with local fighter Don Willis in the Super-Heavyweight category. Rill's ring experience made the difference in this one, as he pounded his way to a unanimous decision. Rill is currently training to regain his Canadian title, and this bout was his first bout back after a 2-month stint away from the gym. He has the potential to go all the way, and should be interesting to watch in the future.

A special thanks to Mills Pontiac who donated a van rental to get the Motor City Team to Windsor for these fights.
