  Championship action at the Hilton

The Hilton hotel in Strathclyde
was the venue for a double world title header last weekend, staged by Scotland’s top kickboxing promoter Gary Langford. A capacity crowd witnessed an excellent evening of top class fight action. Two Northern Irish fighters took centre stage in world title challenges.

AMAZING Gary Noade won a THIRD world crown at the age of 39. Downpatrick’s dynamo shook world champion Douglas Morrison in front of a home crowd to secure the welterweight crown in a dramatic points win. Noade's achievement came despite a scare in the third when the veteran fighter found himself on the seat of his pants, (even though the ref said ‘no knockdown’) in the third and in round five he was also stunned by a kick to the head, Noade had to go before the ringside doctor with a deep cut, but was allowed to continue. Knowing time was against him, Noade stepped up his work-rate to overdrive - and with a blistering combination Morrison found himself on the floor in round six. Morrison bravely held out for the final bell before handing his belt over to Noade.

Wilson Snoddy from Larne was in world title action but lost out narrowly on points after seven rounds of an intense battle with defending WKN champion Chris Carslow. A performance to be proud of though, having stepped in as a late replacement with just two days notice. Chris Carslow of Paisley is sure to be a big star for the future.

Dundela football star Brian Boyd is the new British super-welterweight champion. Boyd, got off to a shaky start in the first round for his challenge against champion Stephen Kitchner at the Hilton Hotel, but regrouped well to win with a second round stoppage after a thunderous kick to the body - the Champion from Aberdeen was counted out by the referee.

Craigavon’s Super-heavyweight James Gillen stopped Barry Lang in round third of a scheduled four round contest. The Irish champion looked good from the off landing punishing blows from both feet and hands. James now wants to campaign at heavyweight, if he makes the lighter division he should be a force to be reckon with.

Undisputed Super middleweight world champion Lex Easdon also took part in the event, in a prestige bout over five rounds. He squared up against Dubliner Jonathan Lewins, a new kid on the block with over 20 fights under his belt. The bout went the distance with Easdon taking a close points decision – well done to the Irish man for giving a good performance of himself. This is only the champions second bout after a long lay-off with a medical problem which he has the all clear now. Lex is hoping to find the form he had when he won titles in all the major sanction bodies before he defends his WKN world title at the end of August.

The next dinner show at the Hilton will be on October 24th – Prokick will run a Pre-Christmas shopping and dinner trip - hotel night, fight night ticket to support a N, Ireland select Vs a Scottish select. More detail on request.
