Well done to our team of Kicks Fighters from Brighton and Eastbourne who took part in the TKO Interclub run by Jenna Yates and Wayne Rodrigues. An enjoyable and well run smaller event with one ring in action .
Instructors Tiffany Williams, Stitch Sayers and Chriss Cook along with Junior and Senior Fighters Regan Maher; Ayesha Potts; Rio Sayers; Manuel Baltieri; Scott Ellis; Jordan Gardner and Fiona MacNeill.
All our fighters gave 100% , and decision or non decision worked to their best. Delighted to see techniques they’d been working on in the gym they were then able to add into their fights.
For Rio first time in the ring, for Jordan Gardner returning after a long lay off (and a current injury but determined to still fight), and for Regan tested against a more experienced opponent all showed big hearts and great skills.
Fiona MacNeill v Alice Fox (TKO). WIN to Fi who used her range , movement and great kicks against a game and strong opponent .
Scott Ellis v Aaron P ( Rampage) WIN to Scott in the 1st Round on what was turning into a very promising bout but was stopped after his opponent had to withdraw due to popping his shoulder.
Ayesha Potts v Phoenix Sage ( Falcons). DRAW. Two strong girls. Phoenix a forward fighter and undeterred. Ayesha working around the ring and showing a good variety of techniques, and good effect with her lead leg .
Manuel Baltieri v Chris Dyas. WIN to Chris. Another very well matched and enjoyable bout with both guys working but Chris working more combinations. Unfortunately Manuel got cut in the second round , but was undeterred and determined to finish the fight.
