LA Boxing’s very own, Thomas G. Webb, enters the cage once again Saturday December 8, 2012 as the headlined main event against Houston’s Mitchell Hale at the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino & Atrium Hotel. Doors open at 6:00PM with the first bell set to ring at 7:30PM.
“This fight is real important to me because I’ve had several fall through in the past year. I’m just ready to get back in there.” Sidelined by injury, military duty, and opponent no-shows, Webb has focused on putting the obstacles in his rearview and setting his sights on the task at hand.
With a laundry list of local standouts in his training camp at LA Boxing, including JC Pennington, Dustin Johnson, Michael Guidry, George Frangie, Josh Mancuso, and Doug Fournet, Thomas is confident his speed, strength, cardio, and timing will fall right in sync by fight week. “The training is vicious,” Thomas stated, “but I love every minute of it. I couldn’t ask for a better group of guys to train with.”
Seeking to extend his unblemished professional MMA record of 4-0, Webb happily accepted the challenge against Hale when presented the opportunity to take center stage before a hometown audience. “He’s a tough fighter. He doesn’t mind standing and trading but this is the MMA game. A fight can go anywhere.”
Webb, a member of the armed forces since 2001, has been involved with combat sports since the age of 5. Premiering in venues such as USAMMA and Gladiator Promotions, Thomas has risen through the local ranks and quickly catching the attention of national promotions. He’s also captured titles in Grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournaments including The Houston Open, Louisiana State Tournament, and Gladiator’s Open.
Today, Webb assumes the Head Instructor role at LA Boxing’s Sherwood/Coursey location in Baton Rouge and coordinates conditioning workouts, personal training, and the mixed martial arts program. Thomas’ outgoing personality and love of the sport forms the perfect mix for entertaining, energetic, and challenging classes. His experience as a coach and competitor lends a deep understanding of what it takes to motivate others and assist them in reaching specific goals.
To see Thomas in action, pick up your tickets to FFC’s Season’s Beating at The Belle by visiting LA Boxing at 4520 S. Sherwood Forest Blvd, Suite 110 or visit www.felixslabadboy.com.

The first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt from Louisiana, Tim Credeur has not only experienced incredible success in one of the most demanding sports today, but has also created a martial arts revolution in the southern state. Priding himself on a gritty yet methodical fighting style, Tim continues to reinvent himself everyday by learning from those both above and below his level of expertise.
Credeur, a US Navy Veteran, has claimed Championships in over 50 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo Tournaments, debuted in The Ultimate Fighter Season 7, owns an Amateur Mixed Martial Arts record of 18-0 and a Professional record of 16-6 with 3 wins in the UFC.
Tim continues to spread the knowledge and life lessons that were passed to him from Master Rodrigo Medeiros. Through the teachings in his own successful school, Gladiators Academy Lafayette, and schools all throughout South, Credeur believes in using martial arts to help build people into better people. His work is apparent by the enormous growth and strength of BJJ Revolution Team in Louisiana. Train with Tim every Friday at LA Boxing Baton Rouge.
Hailing from Houston, TX Andrew Sall carries over 15 years of martial arts training to the Team of Instructors. With an undefeated amateur MMA record of 3-0, amateur kickboxing record of 2-0, and champion of multiple Jiu-Jitsu and submission grappling tournaments including Carlson Gracie Open and Submission Sport Open, Sall not only has the experience but a true passion to share his knowledge.
A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Tim Credeur and the Rodrigo Medeiros lineage, Andrew continues to build the 5-Time National Championship team, Revolution BJJ, here at LA Boxing. Sall has trained and coached at select facilities such as Revolution Dojo in Houston, TX and Memphis Judo & Jiu-Jitsu in Memphis, TN. As the training partner and corner man for UFC/Pride veteran Yves Edwards, UFC veteran Tim Credeur, and the very talented and dangerous Jeff Messina, Sall has had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the skills, will, and work ethic necessary to be an elite competitor.
Sall is the Head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructor at LA Boxing Baton Rouge.
A man who has and continues to walk “The Path”, Doug Fournet proves day in and day out to be a revered competitor on the mat; locally and worldwide. Not only does he have more accolades than any other Sambo or Judo practitioner in Louisiana but, at 41, he continues to test himself against competitors half his age.
As a collegiate wrestler for Arizona, Doug made a seamless transition into Sambo and quickly caught the eye of the US Team. Capturing titles in Turkey, Spain, Ukraine, Panama, St. Petersburg, and Praque, Fournet continues to pursue more championships simply through his love of the sport.
Fournet dedicates much of his time to coaching and passing his knowledge of Russian Sambo to new students and seasoned competitors. He plays a vital role at LA Boxing Baton Rouge by preparing competitors in all styles including wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, Judo and Mixed Martial Arts.
A man who truly eats, breathes, and sleeps Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Josh Mancuso is regarded as one of the top competitors and Jiu Jitsu practitioners in Louisiana. An insatiable passion for the sport has led Josh to discover new levels of physical and mental achievement he’d never found in his life before Jiu Jitsu.
Beginning his training in 2006, Mancuso has since competed in over 25 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournaments claiming medals in 19. His most notable win came in 2011 when he captured the IBJJF Middle Weight National Championship as a Purple Belt. Recently stepping into the cage with a 1-0 record, Josh has also been instrumental in cornering many MMA fighters over the years.
As a Brown Belt under Tim Credeur, Mancuso continues to leave no rock unturned in his quest to discover and master the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Josh can often be found assisting students in technique and managing competition classes at LA Boxing Baton Rouge.
A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt and recognized as Louisiana’s highest ranking and most achieved female Jiu-Jitsu competitor, Cat Davidson has captured multiple local and national championships and continues to excel in the sport. Trained under Rigan Machado and Leka Vieria, the first female Black Belt, Davidson battled her way to become both the Machado Nationals Champion and Pan-American Champion.
After moving back to Louisiana to pursue a career as an attorney, Cat quickly learned that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was still in it’s infancy in Baton Rouge, leaving mostly amateur and professional MMA fighters to train with. Never conceding in the face of challenge, Davidson pushed herself to new limits and proved to be a valued and highly respected individual on the mats. With extensive experience in the fitness industry and as a coach in several major academies, Cat has been a leader in building Women’s Jiu Jitsu in Louisiana and now lends her expertise to LA Boxing Baton Rouge.
A devoted husband, father, and practitioner of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kevin is the Program Director and Instructor for LA Boxing’s Youth Jiu Jitsu. Originally from Lake Charles, LA, Bellard spent 4 years and countless hours on the mats learning and training under Carlos Sapao Ban, an elite Ralph Gracie blackbelt.
Kevin has competed and medaled in several major tournaments including Pan Am’s, Rio Brazil Master, U.S. Open, America’s Cup, and Golden Gate International Championships. Throughout the years, Kevin has not only sharpened his skills as a student but also taken a parent’s vested interest in teaching the art to children. Today, his 10-year-old daughter and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu yellow belt, McKennah, is among the best in Louisiana.
Kevin is dedicated to instilling the importance of discipline, character and perseverance in today’s youths. He believes Jiu Jitsu helps children face many of life’s difficulties with confidence and poise.
