Kaye falls to experienced fighter

Veteran savvy beat youthful enthusiasm as Vancouver's Jen Yaeger stopped Chilliwack boxer Darcie Kaye.

Chilliwack-trained boxer Darcie Kaye came up short in her latest match, losing on points to a battle-tested veteran.

Kaye took on Jen Yeager April 29 at the Cascade Casino in Langley.

Yeager, representing Action Boxing Vancouver, beat Kaye on points.

“Jen is definitely the toughest competition in BC,” said Keith Holdsworth, Kaye’s coach at Chilliwack’s Four Directions Boxing. “Jen told Darcie at end of the bout she was her toughest competition to date, and Jen has been around for a while.”

Kaye actually landed more punches, and many at ringside thought she’d won. But the bout was scored under pro standards, with points for ring control, aggression, significant punches and scoring punches.

“In past amateur bouts she’s fought, it was only scored on scoring punches,” Holdsworth elaborated. “Jen was more aggressive, scored some heavier shots and controlled the pace.”

The match was part of the WBC Western Canadian Championships, hosted by Combsports.
