Battle of Kent 18
Sunday 13th October 2013
7 Fighters from Kicks Brighton and Eastbourne went to Kent for another very smoothly run and well organised event by Colin Payne and his TKO Team.
Two of the Kicks fighters were on for the first time and both enjoyed the experience. Brightonian Adam Stubbs(15) had his first fight and first win today. Adam always puts 100% in training along with our other Junior Fighters, and so we were delighted with his ringcraft and composure on this first fight. Josh Warden (EB) was also in the ring for the first time against Sean Knight (Fearless). This was a non decision bout which was good experience for both these young men.
From Novice to the very experienced: Jamie Brown(12) had a tough fight against Aidan Thompson (TKO). Jamie didn't win, but as always he fought to his best; and no doubt further down the line when he’s a bit bigger and heavier will be looking for a rematch.

SATURDAY 5th OCTOBER
WATERSIDE THEATRE, AYLESBURY
This Fabulous IKF Sanctioned event was organised by promoter Stevie Cook.
This venue saw George " The Hammer" Kenly in his first evening show facing Brandon Cook over 3 x 1.30 Minute Rounds of Light Continuous Kickboxing.
Excellent fight between these two very skilful young men. Brandon Cook is a very forward aggressive fighter, and George is an excellent counter fighter who fighting out of a side southpaw stance is an awkward opponent. Two such different styles but resulting in a very strategic and skilful bout which was exciting to the last bell, and which though close Brandon won.
An excellent evening of Kickboxing in all respects. Stevie Cook and all the Pegasus Crew looked after everyone so well, and with Colin Payne as the Referee, Malcolm Martin as the MC and Richard Vince of MAaction.com filming everyone was in very experienced and knowledgeable hands. All the bouts were well matched, and it was great to be watching Kickboxing at such a good standard, whether it was 3 round amateur bouts or the excellent 10 round Pro Light Middle Weight British Title Fight between Aaudi Kinga and Dan Elgar.
Note date of the next one is 19.04.14
