Aldergrove’s Andres wins match at ‘Clash’

At the 33rd edition of the Clash@The Cascades no one was disappointed and the hype around the show was justified — the crowd of 300-plus

At the 33rd edition of the Clash@The Cascades no one was disappointed and the hype around the show was justified — the crowd of 300-plus was very enthusiastic.

The B.C. Heavyweight Title fight was up to expectations with Aaron Downey of Surrey’s WKX defending his title against Bryan Colwell of Victoria’s Island MMA. The fight started with Downey being quite aggressive and after two rounds it appeared he was going to hold on to the title.

The third round saw the fight change when Colwell used his height and footwork to stay out of range. Colwell was able to land some pretty good check hooks and maintain his distance from Downey. As the rounds went on Downey seemed discouraged and was unable to handle Colwell’s style. When the final bell sounded there was little suspense when the unanimous decision was in favor of Bryan Colwell, the new Classic Heavyweight Champion of B.C.

If the question was to be asked about who was the natural challenger to Downey perhaps a few names may come to mind. Perhaps B.C. Cruiserweight Champion Ken Huber, who defended his Cruiserweight title against Colwell last summer. Perhaps Palvir Atwal, who has a three-round win against Colwell. However, at Friday’s Clash in a great fight, Jared Revel of Langley’s Revolution Club won a hard fought four-rounder over Samuel King Moses of Vancouver’s Sargents Boxing. Revel is now the City Classic Heavyweight Champion and Colwell could be in his future.

In a woman’s bout for a City Welterweight Championship Langley’s Tamara Wolfe of Revolution was up against Sarah Franski of Burnaby. The fight was a see-saw battle that was ruled as a draw by the judges.

Both women kept up an amazing pace and the possibility of a rematch was being talked about right after the fight.

Langley City Boxing’s Mat Andreatta of Brookswood took on undefeated Lucas Collette of White Rock’s Ocean City Boxing. The fight started with Collette forcing the fight with pure aggression that may have won him the round, however, Andreatta forced the fight inside and with clean combinations took the second round. The second round was close but the third was all Andreatta with Collette on the ropes when the final bell sounded. The decision went to Andreatta.

In a Langley versus Aldergove match, Kyle Isakson, 17, of Langley City Boxing, took on Jake Andres, 16, of Aldergove’s Blue Corner Boxing. The fight was competitive with three close rounds and when the decision was rendered it went to the blue corner and Blue Corner’s Jake Andres.

The show had a total of eight fights and before the night was over the talk of rematches had already started amid questions about the next show. The next Clash @ The Cascades will be held in the new year.
