BAMA's FightNight 20 results
(April 12 -- South Plainfield, New Jersey) They came to fight -- all 34 of the warriors that took turns stepping into the ring -- and the crowd that practically filled up the gymnasium at the South Plainfield Middle School came to cheer them on and see some action. And I don't think anyone could've come away disappointed. Bayside Academy of Martial Arts' Dan Miragliotta put on another BAMA Fight Night, and with two shootfighting belts on the line and some stellar performances by representatives of Fight Factory, Team BAMA and Pitt's Penn, this twentieth incarnation had it all. Highlights of the night included:
A fierce shock-and-awe campaign waged by "Knockdown" Joey Brown and Chris Liguori that would've had lesser men running for their underground bunkers. These two dropped bombs - and had the crowd on their feet and screaming.
A pitched battle between Billy Craparo and Judah Ciervo that had Ciervo virtually out on his feet early, but the Fight Factory exponent rallied with some solid Thai skills. Craparo garnered the split decision.
The stunning knockout Carlos Moreno delivered to Eric Schneider. Moreno is the man with his heavy hands!
Ciervo & Craparo wage war
