(JUNE 7) Border City Boxing
Club's Jeannine "Heartless" Garside, 126, returned to her
hometown of Duncan, BC on June 6th to fight for the WBC
International Featherweight Championship. Garside became the new WBC
Featherweight Champion by defeating Blooklyn's Dominga Olivo, 125,
by unanimous decision.
Jeannine suffered a second round
headbutt that opened a cut over her left eye that later required
stitches. Quick thinking and experience on the part of her
countermen J.R. Larkin and Josh Canty made the ten round bout
continue without any interference from the gash over her eye.
This was the first time a boxing event of this status has been
held on Vancouver Island and the crowd loved the fact that the
main event was one of their own. Way to go "Heartless".
