GREAT Yarmouth super kicker Bin Tyler successfully defended his British Super featherweight kickboxing title for the fourth time with a unanimous points decision over tough experienced Norwich fighter Andy Godbold at the Ocean Room last weekend.

The Yarmouth fighter edged every round, out-boxing Godbold with his sharp jabs and left hooks and landing body and head kicks that had the Norwich fighter wincing several times. Tyler is now looking for a warm up bout in August and a crack at the World or European title within the next year.

Tyler would also like to fight Allstars fighter Shane Nicholls which Bin feels is a fight Yarmouth people would love to see.

Multi-titled England squad member Jade Munro (12) won the British schoolgirl 45kg Thai boxing title in a battle with Liverpool's double British champion Sasha Ryan (13). Jade's powerful low-kicks and kneeing clinching the points victory, Jade winning her 18th fight in the last 15 months.

Liam Plant (20), the 3 Lions exciting Welterweight prospect, beat Norwich's vastly more experienced Howard Stamper in an exciting battle. Plant's boxing was better and helped clinch the Eastern Counties Welterweight Thai boxing title from the Norwich fighter on points.

Lee Munro (welterweight) out boxed his Cambridgeshire opponent Craig Easy in their Thai Boxing bout, winning on points. England squad member Dan Dawson (15) won his exciting prestige five-round epic Thai boxing bout with fellow England squad member Troy Attewell from Leicester, the bout was awarded “fight of the night”.

Arron Monson (19) and Dylan Lopes (7) won their bouts, Tommy Bracken (7), Lowestoft's Luca McComb (7) and Conor Judge (13) drew their bouts Nicky McHugh, Folksey, Ben Cribb and Luke Self all making their Thai boxing debuts put in good performances. Cameron McGarrigle and Robbie Munro lost close semi contact bouts. Scott Gooch took his fight at only three hours notice and fought well losing to his Cambridge opponent on points.

Over 600 people attended the show and the 3 Lions coaches Bin Tyler, Dave Munro and Frank Crosswell were very proud of their team and thanked all the sponsors and spectators who make these events possible.
