Elk River Boxing competed in Boxing and MMA this past weekend

Elk River Boxing Club and Elk River MMA were back in action last night, October 8, 2016. While Elk River MMA traveled to Beckley to participate in Ruckus in the Cage, Elk River Boxing Club sponsored an event in Clendenin, West Virginia, Judgement Day. Judgement Day contained 11 action packed bouts including two of the Elk River Boxing Club athletes, Alex Nidy, of Clendenin and Chris Stephens, of Clay. Alex Nidy competed in his debut fight against Ramil Islmov, of Pittsburgh, PA, which resulted in a stoppage in the third round. Chris Stephens competed for the 178 lb. ERBC Novice title against Ladre Stallsworth, of Welch and won by unanimous decision. The event was a wonderful success and included a welcome speech from Clendenin’s Mayor Gary Bledsoe.
Elk River MMA was also successful in Beckley featuring fighters, Eric “Logan” Jackson, William “Blake” Whittington, and Tyler Harper, all of whom reside in Clendenin. Blake Whittington was caught in a submission move in the third round and was forced to tap. Tyler Harper competed all three rounds and lost by decision. Logan Jackson won his fight bringing his record to 4-0. Elk River Boxing Club and Elk River MMA is extremely proud of all the hard work that all of our competitors have put in and look forward to getting in the ring and cage again very soon.
