Bryn Gets Big Win in Eau Claire “Rumble in the Valley”


Bryn Ollerman has been working hard since moving to The Cellar Gym 6 months ago.  Bryn started at The Cellar with a record of 0-2 against very tough competitors.  Although things didn’t go his way on the scorecards, Bryn kept his intensity in the gym and continued pushing himself to new levels.  That hard work payed off!  On Friday May 7th at the “Rumble in the Valley” event in Eau Claire, WI Bryn got that first mark in his win column, and was it ever a big win.  Bryn defeated Eau Claire’s Zack Flikkeshaug by TKO at the end of the first round.  The two young fighters put on a busy show for the great fans in attendance, but Bryn landed the better punches in combination.  About halfway through the opening round Bryn dropped Zack with a flurry of punches.  Zack beat the count and returned to his feet, but a little while later Bryn landed another combination of successful strikes.  Zack got back to his feet once again, but referee Jim Peterson called an end to the bout just after bell for the first round rung.  Congratulations Bryn!

Also fighting from The Cellar was Elijah Thibodeaux against Eau Claire’s Dave Wright.  Elijah started off the first round very patiently, but landed some effective strikes.  Elijah also lost a point in the round for a knockdown that probably should have been ruled a slip.  Elijah came back a little stronger in the 2nd round but spent most of the time with his back to the ropes.  Although he may have landed more shots during the round Wright appeared the aggressor and controlled the ring very well.  Elijah came out much more aggressive in the third round and looked to have Wright on shaky legs on a few occasions, but it was too little, too late.  All three judges scored the bout unanimously in favor of Dave Wright, 29-27.  It was Elijah’s first loss, he falls to 3-1.

Also fighting Friday evening was Dave “The Scorpion” Pakarek.  Dave started coming to The Cellar recently to improve his sparring training.  He looked sharp on Friday in his bout against Chris Schultz.  Dave showed his quickness and landed good combinations of punches to get the win by TKO in the 2nd round.  Congrats Dave!
