Three more days to go until Jack Purdy steps into the ring to fight for the title of IKF British Junior lightweight champion. The Casino Rooms in Rochester, Kent, ME1 1PD on Sunday 25th November. Tickets available from Mamba Martial Arts Ipswich.
Four fighters from Mamba Martial Arts were in action this Sunday 14th October at the Battle of Kent and all four did us proud once again. Liam Keeble, Dawn keeble, Tommy Purdy and Kiera Devereux were representing Mamba this time and what a great job they did.
Up first and making her kickboxing debut for Mamba was Dawn (mum to Liam). She had a good opponent from “Kicks” who didn’t make it easy for her but she did very well getting over the first fight nerves to get the win. Liam was up next fighting a lad “PMA”. Both boys threw a lot of kicks and this was a very close fight which could have gone either way but this time it went to the other lad.
Tommy faced TKO’S Chayden Carpenter and this bout was a crowd pleaser. It was non-stop action from the bell with good combinations and such a variety of kicks, it made it very hard to call so this bout ended up being a draw.
Last to fight for Mamba was Kiera. Her opponent from “Falcon” was certainly up for a fight as was Kiera. A lot of kicks were exchanged again in this bout and as with her last fight at Ringmasters, it was quite close but this time Kiera got the win. Well done to all of you not just for the way you fought but for your conduct throughout the day.
