FIGHT NIGHT 4
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.
