“Cowboy” Looks to Ride Roughshod Over Fellow Canuck as Bodog Fight Re-Opens “The Vault”

For Immediate Release

December 31, 2007

Mixed martial arts powerhouse Bodog Fight ushers in the New Year with all-new never-before seen bouts this Tuesday and Saturday on its multi-award winning website,

Tuesday, January 1 don't miss a hard-hitting episode of Bodog Fight: The Vault featuring Canada's Garett Davis (5-6) and Myles “The Cowboy” Merola (6-1) in a welterweight fight filmed last year at a Bodog-sponsored Elite FC event in Vancouver, B.C.

Davis had an auspicious start to his pro career, losing his first six fights, once by knockout just 15 seconds into the first round. However, training under legendary Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor Marcus Soares, Davis persevered, and entered this fight with Merola having won his previous five bouts.

“Basically, Garett wasn't training the right way,” recalls Soares. “He was inexperienced and didn't know how to prepare himself properly. He moved from Newfoundland to train with me in Vancouver, and I could see he had talent. So, we worked on his cardio and practiced Jiu-Jitsu three times a week, while Tony Pep helped him improve his boxing skills. All that work has paid off. Garett has become a disciplined, more well-rounded fighter.”

Will it be enough to help him ride roughshod over a determined “Cowboy”?

The answer lies within The Vault.

Then, Saturday, January 5, don't miss a second episode of The Vault as South Korean Hyeon Son Fan takes on Minoru Kato of Japan in a battle of MMA newcomers.

Filmed in October 2006 at a Bodog Fight sponsored MARS event in Tokyo, this heavyweight bout was short and very sweet (for one of them).

Bodog Fight: The Vault offers streaming video of all-new never-before-seen fights each Tuesday and Saturday, commercial free. Each webisode is fully downloadable and iPod-ready, featuring a previously unaired bout from the Bodog Fight archives.
