Augustin, known as "Kid Creole" in the ring was in complete control of the fight from the sound of the first bell. Showing his skill as a fighter, Augustin showed no sign of the jitters for his first pro fight, landing some beautiful shots on Davis mainly with a heavy-handed left that proved to take it's toll on Davis.
The judges all scored the bout 40-36 in favor of the 26-year-old Augustine, who said after the fight, "It was a great experience to get my first fight out of the way, there were definitely a lot of emotions going through my mind in the fight and leading up to it since there was no headgear, and rounds were three minutes instead of two. Everybody in attendance said I fought well, but I think there's always room for improvement. I'm going to watch the film with my team and work on getting better the next time around." Augustin won the 2011 Pan American Game Qualifiers in his division.
For Augustin, his Haitian roots run deep and he fights for his heritage, he lost some family members, who had perished in the earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010.
