Clampitt outlasts tough veteran Olivo; Barboza flattens Saribekian in dramatic knockout victory
LINCOLN, R.I. (Nov. 22nd, 2013) – Jaime Clampitt finally got her storybook ending. Fighting for the first time in three years and the final time in her illustrious career, the Warwick, R.I., veteran Clampitt (22-5-1) faced a tough test against Dominga Olivo (8-9-1) of Brooklyn, N.Y., in the co-feature of Jimmy Burchfield’s “Pride & Power” professional boxing event at Twin River Casino.
The two stood toe-to-toe most of the fight with Olivo actually gaining steam toward the end, but Clampitt’s dominance in the early rounds allowed her to finish on a positive note with a 59-55, 58-56, 58-56 unanimous decision win.
The victory put Clampitt’s final career record at 22-5-1 with 7 KOs, which included world titles in two different weight classes, and erased the sting from her knockout loss to Holly Holm in 2010, a fight that ended in controversial fashion when Clampitt suffered a neck injury within the first two minutes of the fight.
The scheduled six-round heavyweight special attraction between Jesse Barboza (7-1-1, 5 KOs) of Hyannis, Mass., and the veteran Arthur Saribekian (23-5-1) ended in dramatic fashion as Barboza scored a decisive knockout win at the 1:15 mark of the second round.
Fighting for the first time in more than 11 years, the 38-year-old Saribekian spent most of the first round trying to find his distance against the taller Barboza. In the second round, Barboza began his attack, backing Saribekian into his own corner with a vicious body blow. Saribekian bravely fought his way out as Barboza momentarily took his foot off the pedal before reestablishing his dominance and crushing Saribekian with a hard overhand right that sent his opponent crashing to the canvas. Saribekian popped up quickly, but the referee immediately stopped the bout.
The opening bout between Providence’s Ethan Pena (2-0) and light middleweight Antonio Marrero (0-2) was as good as advertised with Pena winning a close, 38-37, 37-38, 38-37 split decision. The two traded blows throughout the fight, but Pena was a bit sharper and more accurate with his pitches, especially in the fourth and final round with the fight still hanging in the balance.
In the middleweight division, Providence’s KJ Harrison-Lombardi (4-0-1) avenged his loss to Mike Rodriguez (0-1) in the amateurs, this time beating the tall, lanky Springfield, Mass., native by unanimous decision, 39-36 on all three scorecards. Harrison-Lombardi pressed the action throughout the fight while Rodriguez tried to keep his opponent on the outside by utilizing his jab. The aggressor Harrison-Lombardi ultimately won on the scorecards to keep his unbeaten record intact.
