Clampitt Wins by a Majority Decision
By Ken Castro, Sports Writer
Narragansett, Rhode Island
posted on January 12, 2003
PROVIDENCE- Apparently the road to a world title fight for Jamie Clampitt won’t be paved with any easy nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way.

"Tough fights like this will just make me a better fighter," said Clampitt after a roller coaster ride of a brawl, Saturday night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.

Her opponent, Cynthia "Sunshine" Jones, of Miami, possessor of just five professional bouts and a late find for the card proved to be anything but fodder for the hard hitting Calgary native in the super lightweight romp.

Clampitt, rated 3rd in the latest WIBF rankings captured the judges’ scorecards to the tune of 59-56, 59-55 and 57-57 in gaining the hard-earned triumph.

Clampitt, weighing in at 144 ½ pounds, was coming off a tough bought with Summer DeLeon last October at Foxwoods Casino.  Jones at 146 lbs., provided similar resistance for the Narrgansett resident this time out as well.

Jones, changed Clampitt’s fight plan abruptly after being the aggressor in a high charged-punch filled second round.

I didn’t expect this. She was a lot bigger and I felt her strength right away," said Clampitt after the bout which was part of a eight fight card. "I didn’t really see her during the weigh in but when she got out there you could notice the size difference. I didn’t really feel that I could do anything and then the strength on top of that kind of took my fight plan away."

Clampitt attired in powder blue and white scored early in the fight, sticking a straight right into the face of Jones and backing her up into the ropes.Clampitt finished off the round by capping a combination with a strong right cross that landed cleanly.

But Jones fashioned her best round in the second, keeping Clampitt close, availing a number of opportunities to score with short-tight punches.

"She was rangy, she was tall and she was bigger than us and Jamie had to adapt," said Clampitt trainer Chuck Sullivan. "She had a little trouble early adapting to it but she caught on later. I think in our situation, this time it was Jamie’s conditioning that won it for her."

Clampitt echoed her trainers sentiments, offering, "I felt in the first round that I tried to box but I couldn’t get in after her jab or her right hand. Second round she came on really strong. I knew that in the third and fourth rounds it was a close fight and I had to give it my all. It wasn’t a pretty fight at all but I knew that with my conditioning and my heart, that I just did what I had to do to win the fight."

The third round proved to be the hardest to score of the evening and featured the largest portion of sustained action of the bout.

Both fighters were more than willing to scrap from the outset. Clampitt hung a strong right at the end of an early round flurry and Jones answered with a crisp right of her own while Clampitt was leaning on the ropes in the blue corner.

"I knew that after the second round, what I was doing wasn’t working," said Clampitt. "I carried through the fight, things that I shouldn’t have been doing but I listened to my corner. After the second round they said to stay close and she made it hard for me to stay close too. Even though it was working it wasn’t easy for me to do what I had to do to win the fight.

At the urging of her corner before the start of the fourth round, Jones began to piece together a string of combinations. Clampitt continued to move well however and kept the final two rounds on an even keel.

"Her (Jones) record is very deceiving because she lost to a world champion," Sullivan said of his fighters opponent.

Deceiving indeed. The 27 year old Jones last fought in late September of last year in West Palm Beach, Florida against Karla Redo.

In a four-round welterweight bout, WIBF Intercontinental Welterweight champion, Redo (8-1-0) won an unanimous decision over the scrappy Jones.

"I’m not happy at all, " said a disappointed Jones after the verdict was read. "In the third I was letting her hit me to wear her down. But she never really hurt me at all."

Jones’ career appears to have gotten a boost from former light heavyweight contender "Killer" Joe Golphin. The Miami native has worked with Jones for less than two months but Saturday’s performance appears to be a major step forward for both parties.

"He’s made me more aggressive," Jones said of her new trainer. "In my last two fights, I lost by decision and wasn’t as aggressive as I was tonight. I really gave it all I had. I guess it’s back to the drawing board.

Similarly, Clampitt will focus on what it will take to keep her ascending the ladder, according to Sullivan.

"Jamie’s coming along. It’s a learning process. She made a few mistakes which she immediately recognized after the fight. She had her head down at some points when she shouldn’t have but the Jones hits hard. Jamie came on strong at the end. I think that she wore her down. Hopefully her next opponent will be her size. She (Jones) weighed in a little heavy but we took the fight anyway and the result is there. A win is a win."
