Destruction at the Dome
By: Benny Henderson, Jr.
Last Friday night at the Horseshoe Casino Riverdome in Bossier City, LA, Cage Kings brought down the house with their second installment of fistic festivities, this one being labeled as, “Destruction at the Dome”. And again it was bloody mayhem at its finest leaving the fight fans salivating for more of the all out war waged in the cage.
The main event featured fan favorite and former Ring Rulers amateur champion Will Campuzano (3-0), who was taking on the then undefeated jiu-jitsu freak Jason Horak (2-1), in what was a technical yet entertaining fight.
Campuzano, who is usually a laid back fighter jumped right on Horak in the opening seconds of the bout attempting as flying knee, though mounted by Campuzano and eating three solid shots, Horak was able to defend against Will’s attack going for a submission via leg lock, then later with an ankle lock.
All though the attempted submission did have an ill affect on Campuzano, the tough Texan was able to take Horak’s back, and the two went back and forth. When the round was all said and done both combatants had their moments.
The second round would not be as prosperous for Horak as the round and fight came to a sudden halt when Campuzano landed a sick right hand that dropped Horak. Campuzano finished up with an assault of punches handing down Horak’s first professional loss via (KO), earning Campuzano his third consecutive victory at the time of :38 in the second.
After the bout the victor gave props to Horak stating, “my hats off to Jason, it was a tough fight but I am not a quitter.”
A defeated Horak simply told the fans, “every fighter gets caught, Campuzano was the better man tonight.”
