Mass Destruction 6 Results

Mass Destruction 6 Results
By Keith Mills

Closed fist exhibition match
Springfield, MA–Mass Destruction VI made headway or should I say handway in MA this weekend when they held 15 fight bouts plus 2 grappling and 1 closed fist exhibition matches [pictured at right]. The event was sanctioned by the MA Boxing Commission including the judges and refs. Promoter Kipp Kollar has been trying hard lately to get closed fist matches legalized in the state so tonight’s closed fist exhibition by Jeremy Libiszewski and Christian Stickney was a leap forward.

UFC fighter Keith Rockell [pictured below] made his debut as a ref sanctioned by the state of MA.
