Logan McGuinness Stops Benoit Gaudet in Eleven

By Richard Cloutier

At the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, an big event was presented by Hennessy Canada in collaboration with InterBox, Buxton Promotions and United Promotions. The main bout of the evening pitted Benoit Gaudet (24-3-0) against Logan McGuinness (16-0-1) for the NABA super featherweight title. After a hard fought battle, McGuinness stopped Gaudet by TKO at 1:56 of the eleventh round.

In the main support, Montrealer Ahmad Cheikho (6-4-2) and Samuel Vargas (8-0-1) fought a real war. Both fighters went down, Cheikho in the first and Vargas in the second. Subsequently, the fast pace caught up to Cheikho in the fourth, when he appeared to be exhausted and went down twice. He survived but got punished and went down again in the fifth. Cheiko's orner threw in the towel at the end of the fifth.
 
On the undercard, light heavyweight Lionell Thompson (10-0-0) of Buffalo won by unanimous decision over former IBF contender in Ramadan Abdullah (15-11-0). At lightweight, Harrison McBain (3-4-1) lost by TKO at 1:56 of the first round to Jeremy Abbott (7-0-0). Brendon Cook (3-0-0) got the best of Darren Fletcher (1-2-0), registering a victory by unanimous decision. At heavyweight, Dillon Carman (2-0-0) won by TKO at the 39 seconds of the first round against Gord Franjic (0-1-0).

Is this going to be broadcast anywhere on delay (it was filmed by Rogers TV)? Both the Vargas and main event fights are worth seeing.

Fantastic fight between Vargus and Cheikho, but Cheikho did not go down exhausted. He fractured his hand and dislocated a finger primarily due to the larger gloves both fighters wore. He was taken to the hospital immediately after the fight…
