Morgantown Hosts Caged Power 4 Boxing and MMA Fights

MORGANTOWN -

Caged Power 4 was held at the Morgantown Event Center Friday night.

The event has different boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) fights.

Fighters from out of state, and even a few locals, showed their skills. Competing in bouts like this takes a lot of preparation.

"[It takes] a lot of running and a lot of sparring. I get hit by my best friends on a daily basis," said Tray Taylor, a mixed martial arts fighter from Ohio. "Besides that, weight lifting and cardio is very important. You got to make sure you don't get tired."

Eric Watkins was born and raised in Morgantown, he's a student at West Virginia University and was excited to be able to box in front of his hometown.

"This is a homecoming. I haven't gotten to fight here I fought in Vegas, Madison Square, Turnstone," said Watkins. "I'm glad to be back in front of the home crowd where all my friends and family can come out and support."

Both Watkins and Taylor were listed as the main events of the night in each of their areas of boxing and MMA fighting.
