GFC in Wigan, 8th June 2019
We had four fighters out competing at an international Muay Thai Boxing event in Wigan recently
Ella Thompstone & Lewis Bentley
First up undefeated St Gabrial’s student, Ella Thompstone moved to 14 fights 14 wins with a totally dominant second round stoppage of her older and heavier opponent from Middleton. Second up, another St Gab’s student and double European Champion, Lewis Bentley proved his class once again in his contest against the highly rated Razza from All Powers gym in Stockport. The fight was a very technical affair which started even but Lewis’ superior skills and strength took over from the halfway stage and ended up a onesided points victory. The fight was so good it received a standing ovation from everyone in the crowd at the end.
Next up, another undefeated fighter, Kieran Lee took a massive step up in class to fight another highly rated and very skill full fighter in Jason O’Hara from Imperial in Southport. The fight swung back and forth with Kieran taking an early lead, Jason coming back, but Kieran digging deep in the last round in a career best performance to take a career best win on points.
Finally for the gym, Adam Haslam faced the unknown Italian fighter Giosef Nassef. The Italian had a very unorthodox style, which meant a cautious start from Adam, who still was coming out on top in every exchange without taking to many chances whilst he got to grips with the Italians style. Then towards the end of the third round Adam unleashed one of the best timed head kicks you are likely to see, knocking his opponent clean out, referee not even bothering to count.
Four fights, four wins in dominant fashion once again underlining the gyms reputation as one of the very best in the country.
