Total Kaos Fight show & Battle of the Gloves
Last Saturday we had two fights show to attend, One at Brisbane on Total Kaos promotions Muay thai show with Luke “the Tomohawk” Thompson & Karina “K2” Cardneas Salazar and also had another show; Battle of the Gloves at Glebe PCYC for some amateur boxing with Dion Beattie & Anthony Keato. Coach Rowan got the plane trip and Coach Shane got the local road trip, both Luke and Karina put on very dominate performances in QLD with strong use of their boxing with low kicks against very experienced locals, hopefully we get asked back as it was a great show to be apart of. On the Boxing side of things Dion put in good use of a stiff jab and counter shots in the pocket, but in the end a close decision went to his opponent which was a fair call. Keato’s proper match fell through only a week out, but a replacement was found for a exhibition match which means the outcome will be a draw no matter what, Keato’s boxing with use of angles and movement was greatly improved for his last outing and we were happy about his overall performance.
