FIGHT NIGHT 4
HASTINGS CENTRE

KICKS JUNIOR K1 FIGHTERS GO FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH


This was a promotion sanctioned by ICO, and put on by Carl Denne of HKA. It was an excellent show in a superb venue with a great crowd and great atmosphere between the clubs and their supporters. There was a lot of Junior Fights on, and these highlighted the high standards being set now, and also how much the sport has evolved and progressed over the last decade. 

Kicks Fighter Jamie Brown (Age 13) was the only K1 Bout of the evening. This eagerly awaited re-match between Jamie Brown (Kicks) and Joe Shelton (SXF Gym), was requested after the previous fight last month in Chatham, Kent ended in a second round disqualification for Shelton and an automatic win for Jamie Brown. Neither fighters or camps wanted this to be the way a result was achieved, so Carl Denne who was at the Chatham Show agreed on the night to host the re-match.

The first round saw a much faster start from Jamie who very much kept on his front foot, and looked to dominate the ring with fast punch combinations and low kicks.

The second round was a close one to call with both fighters working hard, and with Shelton showing much greater defensive skills.

In the third round Jamie knew he had to finish strong to win the fight, and He worked hard to do this against a strong and worthy opponent.

A good and worthy win to Jamie Brown on a majority decision.

The previous week Kicks Fighter Adam Stubbs (16 Years) fought Rytis Vilons ( Age 31 - TKO Elite) at Battle of Kent 22. This is a Light Continuous and K1 Daytime Event which is held at Lordswood Leisure Centre, Chatham, Kent. An all out action bout which saw Adam Stubbs take the win, and now look forward to moving onto bigger evening shows.

IKF SANCTIONED EVENT “TOTAL COMBAT”

Night of Full Contact, K1 and White Collar Boxing

On Sat 21st Feb Kicks Fighter Jamie Brown was in action at the IKF Sanctioned “Total Combat” at Northwood Leisure Centre, Chatham, Kent.
These shows are put on by Promoter and IKF Representative Colin Payne of TKO Gym. The Centre was packed to capacity with a fantastic atmosphere and a great line up of fights. Jamie was fighting Joe Shelton (SFX Gym) over 3 x 1.5Min Rounds of Junior K1. This was a keenly anticipated fight between two aspiring Juniors with both national and international experience.

The first round was close with both fighters being slightly cautious and sounding the other one out. A warning was given to Jamie’s opponent by the referee for throwing Jamie as this is not allowed in K1 rules.

In the second round Jamie stepped his pace up and was starting to control the ring and get his combinations in. A strong knee to the body hurt his opponent. This was followed by a further warning to Shelton who threw Jamie again. Jamie continued to press forward and had got his opponent in the corner throwing strong leg kicks. As he went to use his knee, he was again illegally thrown by his opponent. Due to the nature of this last throw, and the potential damage that could have been inflicted Shelton was disqualified, and Jamie’s hand was raised as the winner.

Jamie was pleased with his performance but would have liked the fight to have gone the distance with Shelton. Shelton’s corner were also not happy with their fighter and his performance that evening. Both camps talked that evening and so we are delighted that promoter Carl Denne (HKA) is able to rematch this bout on March 21st at “Fight Night 4” at Hastings Centre. We feel sure that this will be a great re-match between two aspiring young fighters, and will be fought under proper K1 Rules.

K1 World Open Amateur Championships

On September 13th Kicks Fighter Jamie Brown took part in the K1 World Open Amateur Championships held as part of the Strength and Combat Show at the London Soccerdrome. This is the first event of it’s kind to be held in this country with K1 Legends Ernesto Hoost and Peter Aerts in attendance, and an estimated audience of over 2,000 people.  The fights were 3 x 1 Minute Rounds with 30 Second Break. Jamie fought Abdo Toma from Italy in the semi final, and Linus Klevenskogfrom Sweden in the final. Jamie dominated both fights. His timing and variation of techniques - going from strong leg kicks to accurate placement of punches and good use of the side kick made him stand apart from his opponents. The unified decisions of all three judges saw Jamie Brown receiving the accolade of K1 World Open Amateur Champion in the 13 – 14 Years (Under 54Kgs Section). Jamie is looking very strong and focused for his next step of World Domination at his weight in the Unified World Martial Arts Championships in Italy at the end of October.

Kicks George “The Hammer” Kenly V Mitch Neale (FCA)

26th July 2014

Promotion: FIGHTING TIGERS GYM

Sanctioned: IKF

Venue: Sussex Coast College, Hastings

This was Junior Full Contact Kickboxing over 3 x 1.5 Minute Rounds.

A well matched fight between these two young men with George up against a strong opponent in Mitch Neale from Freestyle Combat Academy.

George used his awkward side kick, quick hands and good movement to keep his opponent at range. The Kick was on target but Mitch Neale was happy to trade with George throughout the fight, and tried for a strong finish in the final round.  George had done enough throughout the fight to secure the win on the judges card. A good rematch for the future.
