Co Down man Stuart Jess lands a good kick
Co Down man Stuart Jess was beaten not broken by his defeat to the more experienced Sammi Fathallah of Switzerland last month. This time it was a different Jess that came to the ring, The Dromore man is back to his best after beating the Celtic champion Mickey Shields of Motherwell on a clear points victory.

Derry's Darren Dougan hits home with a good jab
Derry's Darren Dougan had his Scottish opponent on the canvas no less then six times over a scheduled three rounder against Shan Wanless. This win now rewarded Darren with a chance to fight for the Celtic super-middleweight kickboxing title after an impressive transition to the sport from Kung Fu.

"Overall the trip to Scotland was a great success bringing back two major titles and five wins out of six the only down side is the poor decision of the judges with Ian Young which I'm really gutted with. Hopefully we'll have something rectified soon. It's onward and upwards for the sport of kickboxing, we have something really worth shouting about now as we can boast 3 world champions from Northern Ireland, and there's more to come!" Said a delighted Murray.

Big special thanks to Albert Ross, Gary Langford and all the team for a great show and superb hospitality as usual...
