Once again, the home team cleaned up. Sor Thanikul's Thai Boxing squad went unbeaten with Mick Cortos scoring a 2nd round TKO, Mick Terrel a first round KO, and Gary Rowley winning via decision.
Unfortunately things didn't go right on the night for Big Sid, but we're all proud, well done for getting that first one out the way, next time you'll have it.
Mark Platts showed his technique and fitness again with a unanimous decision win over Shamsul 'Black Magic' Haque, with some excellent transitions, going for subs and sweeps right throughout the fight. Excellent technical match.
Rob Mills stormed to another 1st rd. KO, dropping Mac McCaughey of Shotai Kai with the first flurry, inviting him back to his feet only to knock him back to the canvas. The ref stepped in, to Rob's disappointment, once again giving his cornermen nothing to do. I might not even bother going next time.
Simon Gould took apart CCA's Martin Mckie with a combination of heavy handed boxing and aggressive Judo to land him an impressive knockout in the 2nd Round.
Well done guys, once again we showed the fact, we are the North-East's number 1 for Muay Thai and MMA.

Well done guys! The hard work of the past few weeks has eventually paid off. Congrats to everyone, especially to Simon and Sid who were fighting for the first time, very few people have what it takes to step in the ring or the cage and fight in front of a screaming crowd. It is a unique experience that I would be glad to have soon on another card.
Mark has proven that he is not only a striker but also a true MMA fighter with a brilliant ground game. Unfortunately, if Rob
keeps on smashing all his opponents within the first few seconds with his Vovchanchyn-like punching power, he will never be rewarded for his grappling skills.
Good job done for the Thaiboxers as well, the team is undefeated. As Barry says during his grueling stamina sessions: "Train hard, fight easy."
