Citing no specific reason, several sources in the crowd said former world heavyweight champion, Shannon Briggs, was not allowed to fight on the Pain & Pleasure card in Atlanta this Sunday February 23, 2014 by the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission.
No problem, a little cash is all you need to fix the situation; Quatavious Cash that is.
In what turned out to be an action packed event, Cash finished the night with a spectacular 2nd round TKO over a game Leo “The Lion” Laudat. Cash, an Atlanta native and obvious fan favorite, entered the contest with an undefeated record of 7-0, with four victories by way of stoppage.
Although Laudat was not afraid to exchange with Cash on the inside, it became obvious, midway through the first round, how this contest would end. Cash's jab was working for him early on in the fight, snapping off Laudat's face at will.
Cash then followed up his jab with hard two and three punch combinations to Laudat's body and head. At one point during the round, Laudat was even warned by the referee to keep working as a Cash combination severely wobbled his legs.
Somehow, Laudat was able to make it out of the first round. However, his moral victory would be short lived. After wobbling Laudat again in the final minute of the second round, Cash unloaded several defenseless straight right and overhead right hands that left Laudat out cold on his feet. As the referee called an end to the action, the crowd went wild.
During a post fight rant, Laudat, claimed it was a bad stoppage. Obviously, Laudat was in the minority because I thought the stoppage was a few seconds too late.
Quatavious Cash moved to 8-0, with 5 KO's, and no one seemed to miss Shannon Briggs.
