Mary Ann Owen told WBAN, “The fight was highly competitive. Lamare trained with a new trainer Said Bennajem from Paris, France. Lamare had some different moves that caught Saccurato by surprise. Saccurato went toe to toe in heated two minute rounds for ten rounds. Lamare was a gracious winner pulling Saccurato into the center of the ring to pose for photos.”
