NEW WKN promoter Chris Christodoulou had great success promoting
his first WKN show in Paphos Cyprus last week.
He had four top class bouts on the card along with a conventional
boxing bout. Christodoulou has now made a big impact with the WKN
President Stephane Cabrera who was at ringside for the first WKN
meeting in Cyprus.
Here is a
WKN Amateur EUROPEAN title LOWKICK KICKBOXING RULES -72,600 kg
Andrew GRIMASON ( NORTHERN IRELAND ) vs Dima WEIMER ( GERMANY )
of Germany won the WKN low-leg kickboxing title in the second round
over Belfast's Andrew Griamson, WEIMER was in great form as he dropped
the Belfast man in the first round with a left hook. Grimason was
on his feet right away but the kicking power from the Hamburg Man
was too much for Grimason.
Up and coming former football star Ian Young must have thought he
was back in the game of two halves at the weekend, instead of kicking
his way up the European kickboxing ladder.
who won two Irish Premier League titles with Linfield and enjoyed
stints at Crusaders and Carrick Rangers before quitting football
for a career between the ropes, he achieved a unique and remarkable
feat in Cyprus on Monday – fighting twice on the same bill
as one of his team mate was forced out with a leg injury just minutes
before the fight!.
First bout: Vasilis Krikelas pushed the Northern Irish fighter to
the end, Young took the fight on the judges cards. Young stepped
in to fill a void left by injured Prokick team-mate Bill Morrow,
and volunteered to meet another Greek, Chris Giorgy an up-comoing
star in Cyprus.
Hennessy was up against tough German Marcel TRATNIK in a low leg
kickboxing bout. It was a very close fight for the whole four rounds
but Marcel did just enough to take the nod from the judges.
Well done to Mr Chris Christodoulou and all who helped to make this
first WKN event a susscuss at the 5-star Venus Resort in Paphos.
Mr Chris Christodoulou be in Belfast with one of his fighters at
the KICKmas event on the 19 December.
