GFC Fighters Kieran Lee, Myk Estlick and Adam Haslam all fought on the latest Yokkao show at the Macron Stadium on October 13th.
On 13th October three GFC fighters featured on the biggest Thai Boxing show in Europe. Held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton, Yokkoa is widely regarded as the best show to fight on in the UK.
First up was Kieran Lee, who had been out of the ring for over two years. Kieran’s opponent had three times the amount of fights that Kieran has had and had picked up a couple of titles recently, so all in all, a big ask for Kieran. Kieran however was unfazed and consistently outscored his opponent throughout the fight and despite a late rally managed to hold out for a convincing points win.
Second up was Myk Estlick who had featured on all the previous UK Yokkoa shows bar one. His opponent, Niall McGreevy is widely tipped as the next big thing from Ireland and had just returned from six months training in Thailand. Myk is very tall for the weight but his opponent was a god three/four inches taller than him and the fight proved to be very awkward. Myk shipped a couple of low blows early on and this seemed to effect his composure. Myk lost the fights on points.
Last up for GFC was Adam Haslam. Most people were picking his opponent, the very talented Luke Hill from Lumpinee Crawley. Adam wasted no time in setting his stall out and went straight out on the attack, landing big blows straight from the off. Round two continued in the same way, with Adam pushing his opponent on to the back foot and scoring well throughout the round. Luke showed his class by coming back in round three taking the round, round four went backward and forwards with Adam just taking it. Then in the final round Adam landed a big elbow in the first minute which opened an horrendous cut over Luke’s left eye. Adam won the fight round to take a convincing and highly enjoyable victory.
Kieran and Adam are all ready booked to feature on the next Yokkoa show to be held in March 2019.
