“The Silverback” Reigns over Ribeiro on Strikeforce-Challengers: 12

strikeforce_challengers_12This past Friday night from the Jackson Convention Center in Jackson, Miss. Televised live on Showtime’s Strikeforce-Challengers: 12, American Kickboxing Academy’s Justin “The Silverback” Wilcox (10-3) pounded out a unanimous decision victory over the tough Brazilian born Jiu-Jitsu artist Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro (20-5) in securing his place as a top prospect in the lightweight division.

The California based fighter (Wilcox) took the fight to his opponent (Ribeiro) utilizing strong jabs and heavy hands while fending off any take downs that Ribeiro offered up. Wilcox handed down Ribeiro’s third consecutive defeat, while Wilcox garners his fifth straight victory, and setting his sights on bigger and better days in the 155-pound division.

Preux Prevails over Britt

The co-main event featured two tough light heavyweights as the power punching Antwain Britt (11-5) fell to defeat from the hands of Ovince St. Preux (8-4) in a less than spectacular throw down.

All though an accidental thumb in the eye of Britt nearly caused a halt to the bout, Antwain stayed in the fight. Both are known for their punching power, but the fight was fought mainly on the ground with the bout going back and forth. When the final bell rang to end the bout the judges gave the nod to Ovince via unanimous decision, giving Preux his fifth consecutive victory, Britt drops his second bout in a row.

“The Whiteman” vs. Spiritwolf a No Contest

In a fight that could of very well of been a fight of the night candidate didn’t get very far as a finger in the eye ended the contestant in just six seconds of the first round as Marius Zaromskis (13-5) tried to catch Waachiim Spiritwolf with a flying knee but instead caught his opponent with a finger. After much debate on the rules, the bout was ruled a “No Contest” in the dismay of the fans.
