Garbatt and Trivilino Battle to a Draw
by Mark A. Jones
July 27, 2013

(JULY 27)  Last night (June 26) at the Saratoga City Center in Saratoga Springs, NY, “Lethal” Lindsay Garbatt, 125, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, battled fan-favorite, Jackie “The Force” Trivilino, 126, Plattsburgh, NY, over eight hotly contested rounds at Ares Promotions Fight Night XI.

Dispensing with her usual swarming style, Trivilino opened the show boxing from long range keeping her physically stronger opponent at a comfortable distance while initiating the exchanges by firing off punches in volume. Trivilino was successful with this tactic in the first stanza while Garbatt mostly concentrated on keeping her defense tight while finding her timing after nearly a year hiatus from the ring.

In the second round, Garbatt, who holds victories over Melissa Hernandez, Jelena Mrdjenovich, and Maureen Shea, was warmed up and firing on all cylinders landing mostly single hard punches as Trivilino advanced forward from long range. Garbatt blocked most of Trivilino’s follow-up punches on her gloves and forearms. Garbatt ended most exchanges with an exclamation point landing an accurately placed hard shot to the head of Trivilino that often visibly affected her.

The third and fourth rounds were similar to the third witnessing Garbatt control the middle of the ring forcing Trivilino to maneuver on or near the ropes. She continued to land the more telling blows ending most of the exchanges with a landed punch.

Trivilino rediscovered her groove in the fifth round landing in combination to the body and head while evading Garratt’s bombs.
In boxing when you add new software to a fighter, it is often a very temporary fix; particularly when the fighter is advanced in years, they tend revert back to their comfort zone when stressed. Trivilino aged 31, in the sixth round left the niceties of boxing from the outside in the corner and exchanged with the heavier punching Garbatt at close-quarters. Taking no backwards step, Garbatt gave better than she received stealing the round in the later moments landing accurately with thunderous right hands.

Both boxers did good work in the seventh round with Trivilino landing in combination to the body and Garbatt landing the more accurate and meaningful punches.

In the final round, an already standing crowed cheered both fighters as they repeated the fist-flying action of the sixth round; each wishing to end the fight on a positive note. Leading on each score card, Trivilino kept her foot on the accelerator before a well-placed right to the head knocked her to the canvas with only moments left in the fight. Trivilino was shaken making it to her feet at the count of four. Fighting on instinct, Trivilino refrained from clinching absorbing two hard right hands before the bell saved her from further punishment.

After a longer than the usual time allotment in tabulating the score cards, the assigned judges verdict was a split-draw (76-75/75-76/76-76). This reporter scored 78-73 for Garbatt liking her punch quality and accuracy to Trivilino’s punch volume awarding the later fighter only the first and fifth rounds.

With the draw, Garbatt moves to (7-6-2, 3 KOs) and Trivilino moves to (9-5-3, 1 KO). Though she is (0-3-1) in the last four fights, Garbatt proved that she is still an A-Level opponent capable of battling the best at featherweight. Trivilino, with the draw, keeps her hopes of a title shot alive and is a capable opponent.

This fight was executed on the highest possible level by two fan-friendly female boxers and was received well by those in attendance. A special thanks to Ares Promotions, who usually schedule at least one female boxing match on their cards.
