On the 17th August we had Karina “Latina Heat” Cardenas Salazar fight for MASA NSW state title and Dion “The Detonator” Beattie make his Pro debut. Karina’s fight would be her first time doing 5 rounds and was a great experience to get her game going over the longer distance. She did great applying a devastating low kick game and clinch control, Karina becomes one of Double Dragon’s female champions in a long while and proves inspiration to other girls train to their full potential. Dion would make his pro debut on this show, getting rid of the pads from amateurs that suits his game better. He skilfully picked his shots finding success with kicks and strong elbow strikes, in the 2nd round he saw opportunity in a missed kick and spun in a back elbow that cleaned knocked out his opponent. It was a great night for the team and look forward to the rest of the year with more stellar fights coming up.
