TKO Light Contact 30/09/23

TKO Light Contact 9, Maidstone, Kent

A great morning at this well run and friendly light contact K1 and Boxing event in Maidstone, Kent. The event was run by Jenna Yates and Wayne Rodriguez of TKO Academy and featured twenty-three fights in one ring, each with three rounds of one and half minutes. The day included a series of really good bouts, providing an excellent foundation for those fighters who may be stepping towards full contact in the future, who need to increase their experience and ring craft.

Our Kicks fighter at this show was: 

  • ILARIA GALETTA V ALICE GRUNDY (TKO)

A fast paced action bout between these two flyweight women. Ilaria kept to the game plan we’d been working, and used her leg kick; fast hands; and having closed the distance worked the knee to very good effect. Her opponent was tough and game and used her hands effectively but found the leg kicks and Ilaria’s high work rate hard to combat. 

Well Deserved Win to Ilaria.
