On Friday, February 18, 2005, Title Fight Promotions held "Primal Fury
I" at The Dock’s in Toronto, Canada. There were four fights on the card this
night. There was one female bout, that featured
123, who fought Stephaney George, 120. Brown won by knockout over
George 1:18 seconds of the second round.
I arrived at the event a couple hours early to check things out; it was a
fascinating set up. This was my first live event, and I definitely
encourage anyone who hasn’t gone to an event to attend one, it’s worth it!
As I was walking around, I
overheard Stephaney telling her team that she was really cold. She was
visibly shaking and rubbing her arms even with a coat on. However, the room
wasn’t that cold which made me wonder if she could have been suffering from
the early stages of the flu or was she not accustomed yet to the very cold
Canadian weather? Both Brown and
George were the same height, but with a slight weight difference. Lisa
was the much stronger looking fighter. In addition, Stephaney usually
fights at a lower class.
Lisa and Stephaney’s match was the second of the night and both fighters
came out to loud ovations. The first round was relatively close and both
fighters landed a couple good combinations, but Lisa definitely won
the round. The difference being Lisa landed harder punches with much more
power behind them. Stephaney’s punches seemed to have no “pop” behind them
In round two, it was a different story. Lisa came out much more
aggressively landing solid straight lefts and rights that snapped
Stephaney’s head back and kept her backing up and on the defensive. Halfway
through the round Lisa landed a sharp right hook to the side of George’s
head which once again put her on the defensive. A few seconds later
Stephanie lowered her guard just enough to allow Brown to land a crushing
left uppercut that caught George flush on the chin and snapped her head back
violently. She was out cold before she even hit the ground. Stephanie George
laid motionless for several minutes while doctors attended to her. Lisa
Brown showed visible concern for her opponent and was very classy and
respectful woman, my hats off to her!
After several minutes the doctors sat Stephaney up and moved her back to her
corner. She was still complaining about being cold and was rubbing her arms
and shivering. George was eventually taken away by stretcher. I found out
later on that Stephaney George was fine, but still complaining about the
having a chill.
With this win Lisa Brown improves to 10-1-2 (3KO), and
George falls to 5-3.
