(NOV 3) PROVIDENCE, R.I.
Last night on the "The Connecticut Classic," card presented by
Jimmy Burchfield's Classic Entertainment & Sports, at the
Foxwoods Resort, in Mashantucket, Connecticut, Shelito Vincent, of New
London fought Canadian Alisah McPhee in a six-round bout.
In what was one of the most
exciting bouts of the evening, Vincent, 123 lbs., 10-0 (1KO) won
by a fourth round TKO [0:52] over McPhee, 118, now 2-1.
Vincent remains undefeated with a 10-0 record adding a first
time KO to that record.
The NewEngland.Net reported that Vincent was able to get over
her hump and score her first KO on her professional boxing
record. They said, "McPhee showed some decent heart herself, but
she was not ready for the heavy volume of punches to the body
and head that Vincent was able to connect throughout the short
WBAN spoke to Vincent after
her fight with McPhee and asked Vincent where she goes from here
after this win last night:
Vincent told WBAN, "I'm actually sitting down with team this
week to discuss what's next... I'm ready to go whenever they
pull the trigger..."
We asked about her opponent McPhee: Vincent said, "She
is a strong girl... She kept throwing... I didn't know much on
her... Just she was undefeated as a am an pro... An she was
coming to fight... An that she just beat the national champ over
there... Heard she was tough... "
Lastly, WBAN HAD to ask Vincent who was on her "Hit" list!
Vincent responded, "Man, I'll fight whoever if the
price is right... But EVERYONE knows I want HARDY!!!!! Her
"0" can be the next to go.... She knows I would DESTROY her
though... I would duck me too...Me an her could sell out an
arena together... GREAT fight for women's boxing. Paz vs.
Haugen, a female boxing one, as one reporter said it!" .
