BATTLE OF KENT 19

A sunny Sunday for this show. Well organised from start to finish as are all TKO Events, and a nice atmosphere among fighters and spectators and clubs.  I felt the level of contact was considerably heavier than in previous events.

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.

Wins

Adam Stubbs v Peta Sivak (TKO)

Chris Vella v Sam Squires (Fighting Tigers)

Martyn Beckley v Clive Rogers (1st Strike)

Non Decision Bout

Josh Warden v Sean Knight (Fearless)

Losses

Rob Kenly v Daniel Brothshed (Falcons)

Dave Chamberlain v Adam Chackfield (HKA)

Jamie Brown v Aidan Thompson (TKO)

   

STORM 5

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


 

RINGMASTERS 2013

SUNDAY 29th SEPTEMBER

SWALLOWS LEISURE CENTRE, SITTINGBOURNE

This well organised Light Continuous Event was organised by Chass Wingrove and Lee Whittington, and sanctioned by ICO. Each section being fought through from start to finish before the next category went on.

Seasoned Junior fighter Jamie Brown was in the Boys 12 & Under (45KG +) Category. Jamie convincingly won his first fight but was unlucky in the final.

Rob Kenly was in the Youth 13 – 17 yrs (Under 55Kgs) and was matched against Tylor Pearson from TKO. We felt Robert though fighting on his back foot was accurate and sharp and dominated each round. We were confused at this decision which saw Tylor’s hand been raised. His brother George was also in the Youths 13 – 17 (Under 60Kgs), and lost to Daniel Easton.

In the Men’s Seniors Lukasz Gromadzinski ringcraft skills and timing was commented on by chief referee Pete Dunnett as he won three fights taking him into the final with Ashley Hook(Paul Wiffen). This was a close fight between two experienced technicians with Lucasz winning and being crowned the Ringmasters Champion 2013 Male Under 75Kgs.

Tomas Kovaricek and Mark Mantell were both in the Male Under 70Kg Section. Tomas beat Leight Troubridge (Tko)to get through to the next round. Mark Mantell entered the ring for his bout but his opponent failed to turn up. The next bout saw both fighters out of the tournament.  One was knocked out with a head kick, and the other was disqualified for the head kick! This saw Tomas and Mark in the final together so moved around as a demonstration bout and share the title of Ringmasters Under 70Kg Champion 2013.


   

BATTLE OF KENT 17

SUNDAY JULY 7th 2013

It was good to have both Kicks Brighton and Kicks Eastbourne at this BLCC enjoyable event run by Colin Payne in Chatham, Kent.

It was a quieter event with some of the larger clubs missing so everyone had fought by 2pm, and we were back home in time to watch the end of the singles and a triumphant win to Murray!
On this occasion the Kenly brothers unfortunately weren’t matched, so Jamie Brown was our sole Junior fighter and put on a superb fight against Jay Huntley from TKO. Jamie’s growing skills were in evidence as well as his increasing confidence, and he comfortably won this bout having lost to J. Huntley on the previous two occasions.   Stitch Sayers (Eastbourne Kicks) brought his first two fighters Martyn B. and David C to this event, and Eastbourne came away with a win and a loss, and more importantly both of them having enjoyed the experience and keen to do it again.
Small mention re the decision around Tomas Kovaricek who we felt had pushed forward, and scored more and had this fight in the bag, but with all these events you take the wins with the draws and losses. Results as follows:

WKMA Southern Area Title Re-Match

James Caldecourt (Kicks) v Jordan Khon (Gym Xtreme)

CHARMADEAN CENTRE, WORTHING, JUNE 1ST 2013

Six weeks after their previous title bout which resulted in a draw, James Caldecourt (Kicks) and Jordan Khon (Gym Xtreme) were back in the ring. Deemed the “last of the trilogy”  this bout was the headlining fight of the night; and yet again James and Jordan gave the crowd a fight to remember.
The fight again showed a strong and aggressive start from James;and coming into the third round  the Kicks Camp had James ahead on points. It was the last three rounds that saw Jordan edge it with his range of kicks and ring movement. Both camps were aware that until the final bell went this fight could be turned around with a single shot. The verdict a unanimous win to Jordan Khon (Gym Xtreme).
