JNI fight night at Hurstville
last weekend we had two fighters fight in two different codes. First we had Dion “The Detonator” Beattie matched up in a Muaythai fight against SRG’s Edimar Teixeira with coaches Rowan, Hugh and Steve out there to get him ready. Both fellas had came into the fight with great records and also both know to bring the heat each time they hit the ring. The fight itself was thrilling right down to the wire, with Edimar using a strong switch kick game and Dion falling back on his handskills and power, at the end of the bout it was a split decision win to Edimar. We’ll more than likely see this boys get matched up again down the line and be treated to another fun fight.
ABA tournament at Albury
Luke ” The Tomohawk/T-money/T-Bone” Thompson and Coach Shane travelled down to Albury for an ABA boxing match against Owen for Riverina Boxing club. This would be Luke’s 7th boxing match and now he is fully dedicated to the sweet science putting Muaythai on the back burner. He went in with the game plan to be more composed in the ring, even though he has lots of Muaythai ring experience (which helps), but boxing is a completely different game with a lot less tools at your disposal compared to the art of 8 limbs. When the bell rang Luke came out and measured the distance well with his jab and his opponent answering back by coming over the top of it with the overhand right, Luke caught wind of this tactic after a couple times and started to change the game into finding the body rip to the Liver which started taking devastating affect, as Owen started to get away from that liver shot it opened up the chance for Luke to land the right hand taking Owen off his feet and his coach to smartly throwing in the towel. Luke wins by 2nd round TKO.
