So off I walked up that dreaded hill, last seen running up it as part of my pre fight training, to Mary Immaculate School, where Richard Shore works as their Nurture Manager, looking after vulnerable children with behavioural issues.
Dave Barnes and Karol Nazar met in an exciting-looking bout in the Lightweight division at Shinobi War 6 last Saturday. Both men, especially Nazar, came out all guns blazing from the off. The decisive moment of the fight, was a nasty clash of shins, which unfortunately caused Nazar to withdraw through injury at the end of the first round. Watch the fight below:
Liverpool Vale Tudo Lightweight Aaron Talent made his Amateur MMA debut at Shinobi War 6 last weekend against Wes Williams. Talent made use of a strong wrestling base to keep Williams on the ground and take the judges’ nod after nine hard-fought minutes in the cage at the Liverpool Olympia.
The Fast and Furious combat promotion returned to the Oceana nightclub in Southampton last weekend with one of arguably the most well matched events of the year.
