Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville Connecticut. August 1
The only women’s bout on the card, a super featherweight fight between Maureen Shea and Lindsay Garbatt, saw Garbatt dominate Shea on her way to an impressive 6th round TKO. From the onset, Garbatt was simply the stronger, busier fighter. Her offense was centered heavily on a crisp right hand which regularly found the chin of Shea. Shea, over the course of several rounds, tried to implement a two fisted body attack but simply wasn’t strong enough to keep Garbatt off. By round 5, Shea’s face was swollen and red from numerous right hand and left hooks; the latter of which Garbatt had begun to use as a follow up to the right hand. The end came in round 6 when Shea, exhausted and pinned to the ropes, ate a left hook followed by a thudding right hand. Stunned, Shea began to drop and ate a right hand from Garbatt on the way down. There was no need for a count as Shea was clearly out and the bout was halted at 1:52 of round 6. Garbatt improves to 3-2 with 3Kos while Shea drops her second in a row to fall to 13-2 1NC with 7Kos.

I don't Know why you guys are suprised Maureen Shea is probably a nice person and probably attractive but she needs to restart and take boxing a whole lot seriously she needs more training and needs to ask her self what does she want to be in this sport a joke or the real deal. If she thought fighting Lindsay would be easy that was her first big mistake. I wonder why she did this fight from her own words and team. Lindsay Garbatt was a professional bodybuilder...and was in alot of sports. She knocked out most of her opponents. I bet with enough experience boxing and a change in weight class she could knock out Susi K.
