  Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Phinn Wins By Disqualification In The 10th Round

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The super middleweight Canadian champion, the Montrealer Shakeel Phinn, who really hopes to be involved in a North American championship this year or next year, made another step in that direction.

Involved in the main event of this boxing show organized by the GYM Group, Phinn improved his pro record to 13-1-0 in beating the Mexican Josue Aguilar (12-2-3) by disqualification in the 10th round.

Phinn, who was very patient in the first round, provoked a knockdown in the second round with a solid uppercut to the chin. And he attacked intensively in the third round.

Aguilar got a good fourth round offensively, but Phinn hurt him several times in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds with his powerful hooks to the head and the body.

And the 10th and last round, Phinn maintained his attacks, and the referee disqualified the Mexican, who was hooking constantly the Montrealer.

The welterweight Bruno Bredicean, a fighter from Cape Coral, Florida, living in Montréal since few months, stayed undefeated in eight pro bouts (8-0-0), with a victory by majority decision of the judges in six rounds over the Mexican Jose Manuel Mares (17-12-0).

A judge scored the bout 57-57, but the others judges got one and two points of priority for Bredicean.
Bredicean is trained by the brothers Howard and Otis Grant at the Monster Gym in Dorval, in the West Island of Montréal.

The fight was pretty spectacular, each fighter attacking intensively in each round. However, Bredicean was more accurate than his opponent.

The super lightweight Michael Gadbois, a fighter from Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec, increased his pro record to 15-1-3 in beating the veteran Mexican boxer Cecilio Santos (33-32-6) by unanimous decision in six rounds.

A southpaw, Gadbois attacked furiously his opponent in each round.

The veteran welterweight Jo Jo Dan, a Romanian living in Montréal, improved his record to 36-4-0 with a win by TKO over the Mexican Jesus Gurrola (23-11-3).

Dan floored his rival three times with great power shots to the head and the body, the first time in the first round, and twice in the fifth round. The referee stopped the bout after the second knockdown of the fifth round.

A southpaw, Dan was ranked in Top 10 in the world in 2015.

Like Bredicean, Dan is trained by Howard and Otis Grant.

In the opening bout of the evening, the Montrealer welterweight Roodsy Vincent scored his second win in pro bout (2-1-0), with a win by unanimous decision in four rounds over the Mexican Aaron Lazcano (2-2-0). The fight was extremely intense, each fighter connecting a lot of power shots, in hoping to to win by KO.

In the only female fight of the evening, the Montrealer Jessica Camara, a former Canadian amateur welterweight champion, made successful pro debut in beating the Mexican Heidy Martinez (2-2-0) by unanimous decision in four rounds.
