(AUG 27) On Saturday night, at the
Blackham Coliseum, in Lafayette, Louisiana, on the "Collision at the
Coliseum" card, Kasha “The Fighting Marine” Chamblin won an
eight-round unanimous decision over Donna Biggers. The judges scores
were 80-72 on all cards.
J & P Photography who covered the fight for WBAN, said, “Biggers
looked to be a heavy hitter and she withstood the initial onslaught
of Chamblin with a good return of her own. At times, Chamblin was
able to land some accurate jabs to Biggers. Kasha looked like she
played a "rope-a-dope" with her opponent, staying in a shell stance
and letting Biggers wail away with some clubbing shots. Biggers, at
times, taunted Chamblin trying to make her mad...trying to make her
open up to leave herself open.”
In a post fight interview, Chamblin said, ““Because she[Biggers] had
so many first and second-round knockouts (16 of Biggers’ 19 wins had
come by KO, 14 of them in the first two rounds), I wanted to set a
tone and show I wasn’t backing down. I went in wanting to throw
every punch hard in every round.”
Biggers said after the fight, ““I was trying to get my
counterpunching down. she (Chamblin) caught me with some good shots.
She had a good jab and she has heart because I know I caught her a
couple of times. She’s a little better than I anticipated.”
