Well last night August 1st. at the Mohegun Sun Casino in Uncasville Conneticut “Lethal” Lindsay gave Maureen Shea of Million Dollar Baby fame for her work as the main sparring partner for Hilary Swank in her preparation for the 2004 movie, Million Dollar Baby gave Shea an old fashion beat down..
A tighter, stronger more competitive Lindsay Garbatt, 2-2, 2Ko’s started slow taking her time feeling out a moving bouncing Maureen “Moe” Shea, 13-1, 7Ko’s but went to work behind a strong jab, a heavy right hand and a solid body attack to beat and wear Shea down.
In the seventh round Garbatt chased Shea around the ring finally backing her to the ropes with a straight right hand pinning her there like a Oshawa Motor City Boxing Club sparring partner. Garbatt fell in like a seasoned veteran leaning on Shea then ripped both hands to her body then pulling back just enough to give herself some punching room landing a solid left hook to the head. Garbatt fighting slick now baited Shea in stepping back then firing a lethal right hand counter over a low and slow Shea jab landing square on the button dropping a wobbly Million Dollar Baby to the ropes where the powerful security guard jumped in landing a thunderous driving right to Shea’s head on the way down. Referee Danny Schiavone immediately jumped in stopping the action and preventing any more damage at 1:52 of round seven. Judges Don Trella, Glenn Feldman and Julie Lederman all had it scored a shutout at the time of the stoppage as did I.
Both Garbatts losses are decisions to Jamestown, New York’s Ela “Bam Bam” Nunez. After last night I would love to see a third. Nunez lost a majority decision to Adawirky Lopez at the Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York this past May.
Let’s get it on!
