Yarmouth kickboxer Bin Tyler was still on top of the world after the third successful defence of his world lightweight title in what could well be his last fight, beating tough undefeated challenger Vajaceslav Skreivers of Latvia.

After Tyler dominated the first round, Skreivers came back in the second with some sharp punches. The third and fourth were dominated by Tyler’s low-kicks landing repeatedly on his thighs causing the Latvian a lot of pain, in the fifth Tyler had Skreivers on the floor with a barrage of powerful kicks.

Then in the sixth a perfect right cross had the Latvian on the canvas for an eight count, Skreivers barely beating the count.

Tyler landed two head kicks in the final round which Skreivers took well showing amazing toughness,.

A unanimous points victory from the judges went to Yarmouth’s most successful ever kickboxer. It could well be the end of an era due to Bin’s work commitments.

There were great wins for Yarmouth’s, K9 Gym and Team Noguiera who took on opponents from Newark, Nottingham, Harleston, Norwich and Bury. There were eight victories for the K9 team (including Bin Tyler). Steve Witton (full contact win on points) v Reece Lloyd (Noguiera); Carlos Regini Moran (Thai win on points) v Travis Beaton (Bury); Chiara Spink (full contact win on points) v Lucy Callan (Newark); Nicky McHugh (full contact win on points) v Thomas Rawlinson (Newark); Luca McComb (light contact win on points) v Kyle Flowers (Harleston), Remy Sayer (light contact win on points) v Brett Flowers (Harleston), Katey Plummer (light contact win on points), Cam McGarrigle drew his K.1 rules bout. Hadley Neller and Chaney Docwra both had boxing skills bouts with Hadley (7) taking on Newarks very experienced Sam Hardy (6) and looking unlucky to only get a draw, and Chaney Docwra (6) took on the excellent Kai Smart (7) from the Great Yarmouth Motivation club, in a great little battle which had the crowd roaring with approval, a lovely technical bout which was awarded a draw.

Team Noguiera’s star fighter was South East Area K1 Champion Aurelijus who knocked out Midlands Champion Steve Salter in the first round. Aurelijus was also awarded senior fighter of the night award. Team Noguiera’s Vitali, having his first Thaiboxing bout, stopped Unit 1 Muay Thai Gym’s Mark Plunkett in a great fight.

Undefeated Sebastien Dryglewski took on tough Mikey Lindsey of Newark and was awarded a draw. Reece Lloyd put on a great performance for his first bout losing a close points decision. Jaroslav lost on points to Norwich’s Miguel Rodrigues in a good, tough bout. It was a great evening for both clubs with 10 wins and three draws between them. Both clubs train at Unit 10 Estcourt Road, Yarmouth, K9 in the evenings and Team Noguiera in the mornings.
