Matt put on a superb display of Muay Thai technique against a much improved James Cahill. Cahill used his long front kick very well, but Matt was very measured, thinking his way through the fight, staying aggressive, and by the third round had figured Cahill out completely. He worked his attacks relentlessly, forcing him on to the back foot and leaving no doubt in the Judges minds - Unanimous decision for Inman.
Leon was very unlucky, in my opinion, to have the decision go against him. I was convinced he had done enough to take the win, having pressed the action and delivered some bombs that even made me wince. After slipping a couple of big, big right hands that sent his opponent crashing to the canvas with his own momentum, I had Leon up on style points as well as damage done. Unfortunately the Judges saw something that I missed and the decision went the other way.
Leon, to his credit, never uttered a word of complaint and just took it in his stride. Well done mate, a performance to be proud of.
