Chris Boughey’s NWCKB Final Countdown
To be a World Champion you have to be tested so just before
the North West Chinese Kickboxing squad head out to Portugal for the World Kickboxing
Council’s Championships it was time to give the best of NWCKB a run out.
Chris Boughey, Chief Instructor of NWCKB always maintains to be the best you have to
fight the best....
After a full action packed undercard of up and coming fighters it was time for current
World Champion Elliot Moore to take to the mat against Alex Barrowman’s BCKA fighter Lee
Murray. The fight would consist of one round of light contact and one round of points semi
contact. To make things interesting, if in the event of a draw a coin would be fipped to
determine what the third round would be.
Round one saw Elliot excel in the light contact round, no surprise there as we all knew
Elliot had won his World title in light continuous last year in Dublin. Round one went to
Elliot but he was just beaten in round two by Lee. The coin was tossed and a third round
went on with semi contact, Elliot battled right up to the last moment where he lost , you
guessed it, by one point! But what a warm up for the Worlds.
Mike Eade is a very experienced competitor with several World Championships under his belt.
Last year he took a silver in Dublin so this year he is after the gold and the title. Mike’s
opponent was Kevin Williams, a seasoned fighter. Round one saw Mike take the light contact
round the second round of semi contact was very close but the good news was ...no coin was
needed Mike took both rounds and the fight !
Chris Boughey would like to thank all the fighters, coaching staff, referees, Ken Dunn for
his medical assistance and our sponsor Dave Riley of A&B Insurance Brokers.
Good luck to all NWCKB fighters in Portugal.
