4 Wins and the Lock-in British Title Belt
06 Jun 2015
Our fight team flew over to Guernsey to take part in the annual Lock-In Fighting Championships on 06 June 2015.
The event brings together talent from around the UK to take part in Boxing, Thai Boxing, K-1 Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) cage fighting.
What a brilliant show it was this year! The bouts were really well matched making for the most exciting back and forth fights we have seen in one card!
Smith vs Waterman
Our first fighter out was Danny ’Bomber’ Smith facing Lee Waterman in a boxing contest! Danny took the fight on just one weeks notice with an injured shoulder. The fight went the distance with Danny winning by decision, taking his record to an impressive 4 wins with no losses!
Nam vs Gibbins
Next out was Tony Nam fighting against Luke Gibbins in a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) bout. Tony showed some excellent striking skills and very nearly got the win by KO. Well done to his opponent Luke for having such a good chin, weathering the storm and having the heart to push through it, turning the fight around and winning in the second round. Hard luck Tony, you learnt a valuable lesson from this fight and have the potential to be an awesome fighter!
Dent vs Schmeiduber
Adam ’Stone Face’ Dent fought his heart out against a very tough opponent, Tom Schmeiduber, and showed some of the best defence to ground and pound. Unfortunately after three hard fought rounds Adam lost the fight on points.
Burton vs Mapley
Chris ’First Class’ Burton had a really tough match up facing a very physical and game opponent in James Mapley. Chris did a great job of sticking to the game plan and stayed in control for most of the fight. Chris was relentless with his attacks and won the bout in the second round by submission.
Reid vs Ozanne
Andrew ’Wrecker’ Reid was another one of our fighters with a really tough match up, so it was no surprise to see this turn into a total war as he faced the very skilled and aggressive Josh Ozanne! Josh tested his skills and toughness to the limit in a very close fight. Despite being caught in a very tight armbar and a rear naked choke, Andrew managed to stay calm and escape the submissions. Andrew has shown a lot of improvements in his wrestling, and it was this area that ultimately saw him get the decision victory.
Davies vs Clapham
Our last fighter Michael ’Mickey Blue Eyes’ Davies was headlining the show in what was the main event against Lewis Clapham. Michael put in a great performance showing off his striking skills, winning in the second round by KO to become the new Lock-In Lightweight Champion.
Well done to Josh Ozanne for coaching the guys from Black Rock as well as having to sort his own fight camp out. Josh did a fantastic job with his team who all showed excellent skills both in their stand up and on the ground.
We would like to thank the Lock-In team and all the guys from Full-Boar MC in Guernsey for their hospitality and for what was the best show yet!
