Wow what a show yesterday some cracking fights all throughout the night. As you know I fought Joe Turner in a full thai rules bout and what a fight it was. 😂 It was non stop action and pace from start to finish. Hats of to Joe he showed massive heart the whole way through and I can't wait to see where his career goes from here. I'd just like to say a massive thank you to Steve Pender, Christi Brereton and everyone at team chaos for preparing me for this fight. 🙏🙏 My little brother jamie also fought on the show in an awesome scrap winning by unanimous decision. Oscar who has recently joined the team showing massive improvement in such a short space of time. Also winning by unanimous decision. 👊👌
After the bout, both fighters took to social media and showed the utmost respect for each other, a true symbol of what the sport of Muay Thai is all about.
With both fighters still very young and showing great in-ring technical ability, the future looks very bright for both these athletes.
