NAAFS Rock N Rumble Report






October 4th was a big night in Canton, Ohio as NAAFS presented Rock N Rumble, one of the most loaded cards to ever hit the state and possibly the biggest card of the year in the Midwest region. The only bad part was that one of the nights most anticipated bouts, the bantamweight title fight between champion Bryan Goldsby and challenger Antonio Castillo Jr. did not take place as the champion weighed in over thirteen pounds over the bantamweight limit. The main event did feature a title fight as champion Frank Caraballo was successful in his defense against Cody Stevens in a very good fight. Cody Garbrandt returned to an NAAFS cage and the Alpha Male product took another step closer to the big stage with an impressive quick finish of Charles Stanford. Here is the play by play of the event along with my scoring and guest scoring of former NAAFS amateur title challenger Rachel Dovidio and the Of The Night Awards at the end.
