Sarah Pucek returns to defend her crown in the next Clash @ The Cascades.

Bisla champ at Clash @ the Cascades 45

B.C. Light Heavyweight Champion Buneet Bisla of Bisla Boxing was considered by many to be the underdog facing Sam Moses of Sugar Rays.

The 45th edition of the Clash @ The Cascades met all expectations with a full house, seven bouts and a main event that had drama and five rounds of action.

B.C. Light Heavyweight Champion Buneet Bisla of Bisla Boxing was considered by many to be the underdog facing challenger Sam Moses of Sugar Rays. In the first round Bisla showed he was the champ by dropping Moses with a perfect combination. Moses barely beat the count and survived the round.

Although the first round was one sided the last four rounds were very close and competitive. The fight was close as was the decision; the verdict was split with the nod going to Bisla, who remains the champ and will almost certainly be looking at a rematch.

In a four-round Golden Gloves match WBC Canadian Champion Francis Codilla of Vancouver’s Contenders stopped a very game Kyle Banks of Kelowna’s Madkatz Boxing Club in the fourth round of a lightweight fight.

Cody Robertson of Iberra’s Boxing fought a tough rematch against Marcus Davies of Sunshine Coast in a middleweight fight. The first fight was a split decision for Davies the rematch was a draw.

In a very competitive Junior Golden Gloves fight Nic Schufletoski of the Kamloops Boxing Academy took on Leaf Carnegie of Madkatz Boxing in a very competitive junior fight. The Kamloops boxer won a close three-round decision.

The next Clash is set for March 10 and will feature Sarah Pucek, who will be fighting Maquita Lee of San Francisco for a North American Featherweight Championship. The fight will be sanctioned by the North American Boxing Federation. Pucek holds a Canadian Championship as well as a Commonwealth Championship. Also on that card will be the pro debut of Julian Kim.
