The brawl between Dillon (Big Country) Carman and Eric (The Hammer) Martel-Bahoeli for the Canadian heavyweight boxing title on Saturday afternoon at the Mattamy Centre basically made your average gang fight look like a tea party.
It was a war from the opening bell until the explosive finish at 2:46 of the seventh round — and the crowd loved every second of it.
To say Carman and Martel-Bahoeli went toe-to-toe would be a major understatement. The two heavyweights threw so many bombs referee Mark Simmons needed a calculator to record the knockdowns.
Round after round, Carman and Martel-Bahoeli — who were criticized leading up to the fight for apparently not being worthy of being Canadian title contenders — hammered each other with vicious lefts and rights and uppercuts, though the bout was, at times, wild and out of control.
There’s no ceremony at the CFB Trenton, but people are welcome to pay their respects to the military man who was shot dead in Ottawa on Wednesday.
Corporal Nathan Cirillo will be re patriated to his hometown of Hamilton today.
OPP, military vehicles, and other organizations will be part of motorcade escorting Corporal Cirillo’s body down the highway of heroes today.
They are leaving Ottawa at 11 o clock.
You’re invited to line the overpasses of the 401 in this area in honor of the fallen soldier.
The motorcade should pass through Quinte anytime from 12:45 to 1:30 this afternoon.
Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, was shot while on honorary guard at the National War Memorial. Ottawa Police announced hours after the shooting that the soldier shot at the memorial had died.
He would later be identified as Cirillo, a reservist from Hamilton serving with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment. Cirillo died a short time after the attack despite frantic efforts to revive him at the base of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Cirillo was a personal trainer, former Good Life fitness employee and bouncer at a downtown Hamilton bar, Club Absinthe.
His pictures posted on Facebook and Instagram show a man always smiling, who played guitar and loved his two large dogs. He posed for tourists shortly before he was attacked.
Cirillo’s friend, Marie Michele, has been trying to make sense of the news all day. She first realized Cirillo had been shot when pictures of paramedics trying to save his life was shown on television Wednesday morning.
Mix97 spoke to many people this morning including MP Darryl Kramp who was there at the time of the shooting. Morning Show Hosts Melanie Adams and Cub and Company in Ottawa as well as Norm Jack of CFRA.
