This past Saturday evening, CSC held it’s fourth San Francisco event at the historic Kezar auditorium.Two Fairtex fighters, Jenna Castillo who trained under Phicheat Arunleung (aka Ganyao “Dr. Knee” Fairtex) and Lindsey Marino under Armondet Ranjanthuek (aka Ahn Fairtex), competed on the card.Lindsey was the 9th bout on the card, while Jenna was the night’s Main Event.Both fought extremely well, with Jenna taking home the CSC women’s title, and Lindsey dropping a very close and controversial decision loss.
Lindsey’s bout was a big step forward in her young fighting career.She faced a fighter with considerably more experience.However, Lindsey made it her fight.She pushed the pace throughout, and won over the crowd.The fight was close, but when the decision was awarded to the other fighter, the crowd voiced their displeasure, and cheered when Lindsey’s corner raised her hand.Fairtex is ery proud of Lindsey Marino.We know she will learn from the experience, and we look forward to some great fights ahead in her future.
In the night’s Main Event, Fairtex’s Jenna Castillo defeated Arizona’s Beth Cook by TKO in the 3rd round.Jenna brought in a reputation as the Bay Area’s best female fighter, and as a result one who has had trouble finding fights over the last two years.In Cook, Jenna found a game opponent, but one who would be overwhelmed by Jenna Castillo’s aggressive and technical style.Jenna pushed the pace throughout the entire fight, literally bullying her opponent around the ring.Beth Cook showed a tremendous amount of heart, and managed to dish out some good shots of her own.However, Jenna’s constant pressure would be too much.After sustaining two and a half rounds of punishment from Castillo, Cook could no longer fight.The referee stepped in and awarded the victory, and the women’s title to Jenna Castillo.From everyone at Fairtex, congratulations Jenna!
