Six hundred fight fans packed out the Ocean Room at Gorleston for a night of ringsports.

Joint top of the bill event saw K9 Fight Team’s undefeated Dan Mitchell take on Thai Somprasert Haddow for the WKA British K1 welterweight title.

Mitchell, who is unbeaten in 26 fights, has beaten Essex’s Dave Gould for the ISKA Title, London’s KO Gym Micael Calunga for the WKU National Title and a host of Elite fighters for his total of six K1 nelts.

The bout started at a fast pace with Mitchell’s sharp boxing skills and crunching low kicks scoring consistently as he clearly won the first round. Round two started the same but Mitchell’s punches were having more effect, knocking the Thai fighter on to the back foot, Mitchell then landed a sharp right hand/left hook combination and switched to a spectacular head kick that ko’d Somprasert,

With 30 years of competing in the ring from the age of eight, and also Yarmouth’s most successful ever kickboxer, former world champion Bin Tyler jointly topped the bill taking on former area champion Ricky Berrisford, this was a great fast paced bout with Berrisford coming forward non-stop and Tyler countering with sharp stiff counter combinations, Tyler edged the first three rounds on the judges’ scorecards. The fourth round saw Berrisford’s best round, with Tyler still countering. Roared on by the chants of his big fan base, Tyler went on to win the bout on a unanimous decision.

Yarmouth’s Modestas Andriauskas had a great K1 battle with Londoner Radislav Pavlovic, Modestas’s boxing and low kicks and non-stop work rate saw him beat the Elite fighter by unanimous decision.

Norwich’s Jack Wright won the WKA English super-middleweight K1 title with a points victory over Leicester’s Lei Bridges.

K9’s Dan Sinclair beat Casey Smith in their tough bout while colleague Prince Gee took on Ipswich’s undefeated Ishe O’Connor and though losing a narrow points defeat he gave his all in the bout of the night.

K9’s William Davis won the area light contact title with a great display in a tough bout with outstanding junior Oliver Hawes from Ipswich, K9’s Ashton Neller, Travis Neller and Connor McAleese all won their bouts. Odin Jones and Hadley Neller both looked sharp in their skills bouts.
