Sarah Kuhn, 144, Schoharie, NY, improved her record to 3-0 (1)
with a unanimous points win over the tough Cassandra Lindsey,
141, Columbus, Mississippi, in an entertaining four round bout.
Lindsey, with the loss, dropped to 3-8 (2).
off fast by landing three blistering punches in the first ten
seconds that caused the normally aggressive Sarah Kuhn to
suspend her attack momentarily to gather her wits.
point on, Kuhn cut down the ring and forced her opponent to the
ropes and corners where she proceeded to land body punches with
an occasional right uppercut to the head while receiving only
intermittent counter left hooks from her opponent.
Near the bell
ending round one, Cassandra caught Kuhn with a counter left hook
that appeared to stagger Sara who appeared more off balance than
hurt, but the punch drew interest from the crowd that the
home-town fighter might be in for a tough bout.
The next three rounds were carbon copies of each other with the
much stronger Kuhn forcing the quick handed Lindsay to the
ropes, landing the much more meaningful punches even forcing
Lindsay to switch to the south-paw stance for a short period of
time in the second round. Lindsay had no answer for Kuhn’s
relentless aggression and was forced to throw single counter
shots unable to arrange any combinations of note. In the end,
all three judges fittingly scored 40-36 for Sarah Kuhn who is
beginning to crack the world welterweight rankings.
In her previous bouts, Kuhn showed that she needed space to
punch. Against Lindsay, she displayed improved in-fighting
technique and a wider arrangement of punches landing several
left hooks and right uppercuts. In her three bouts, she has
faced a slugger, a slick boxer, and a counter puncher. It is
refreshing to see a boxing manager building a fighter instead of
Crowd favorite Jackie (The Force) Trivilino, Plattsburgh NY,
improved to 6-2-2 (1) with a 6 round unanimous win over Karen
Dulin, Providence RI, 2-7 (1). Trivilino, normally a fast
starter, toned down her attack in the first round to grasp her
opponent’s style still wining the round on all three cards.
After the first round, each proceeding stanza saw Karen Dulin,
who appeared in excellent shape, struggle with her range
initiating her jab from too far away allowing Trivilino to
easily counter with lead hooks and uppercuts. Once inside,
Jackie, to the excitement of the crowd, landed a considerable
number of punches causing her opponent to clinch. Dulin had no
answer for Trivilino’s swarming style and was forced to clinch
and move away mounting little in the way of offense.
In the end, each judge scored the bout in Trivilino’s favor
60-54. Karen Dulin dropped to a deceiving 2-7, but received
applause from the sold out venue for her efforts.
Jackie Trivilino, always a crowd favorite wherever she fights,
continued to impress with her effort coming of a draw with the
talented Nydia Feliciano for the New York State Featherweight
Title back in November.
