Joe Tizzano defends Feather Weight Title and Jim Fitzpatrick wins Pro debut at PA Cage Fight 30
Miller Brothers MMA’s strong showings at PA Cage Fight events continues at PA Cage Fight 30, as both Jim Fitzpatrick and Joe Tizzano were victorious in their bouts by TKO. Joe defended his PA Cage Fight Amateur Feather Weight Title against Marcus Crawford while Jim made his professional debut against Earnest Walls.
Tizzy got the night started on the right foot and took part in one of the best fights of the night. After two hard fought rounds, he made sure there would be no need for the uncertainty of a judges’ decision as he scored a clean KO for the win at 1:14 of the third round. After shucking off a takedown attempt by Crawford, Tizzy landed a counter left-hook as his opponent came back in firing. The hook landed cleanly and dropped Crawford, forcing the referee to step in and put an end to the bout.
Coach Fitz kept the ball rolling in his professional debut as he made short work of Earnest Walls. Fitz repeatedly put his grappling dominance on display in bringing Walls to the mat and progressing to the back. Although Walls managed to escape to the feet briefly, Fitz quickly brought the fight back to the ground, took the back and hammered away with strikes until the referee intervened at 3:38 of the opening frame.
Next up for the Miller Brothers MMA team is Brooke Fahey who will be taking on Rachael Penkower in a grappling superfight at Men of War in Freehold, NJ on February 17. Tickets are available at the gym for $40. We also are looking to announce some new bookings for the fight team shortly, so stay tuned!
