Bracknell 6 June 2004
Wood (Ronin 1-0 76kg) def Aivaras Tumperis (Lithuania 3-4 72kg) by verbal submission R1
(1.27). Another good outing for the aggressive Wood who stalked Trumperis round
the Cage and got an early win through strikes.
Cellerier (French Top Team 68.5kg ) def Kamron Rana (Ronin 64.4kg) by Keylock. R1
(2.50). First fight for 25 yr old Cellerier and 36yr Rana.
Ellis (Bristol, Team Savage 2-1 76.6kg?) def Ronnie Pexton (Farnborough, Ronin1-1
69.5kg) by verbal Submission R1 after being GnP'd in the mouth.
Cage Kickboing Lenny Lamport (one of Smiler's gym, ) won by Default. His opponent
Paul Currie didn't show up! Shame. Lamport was fun to watch in his previous outing.
Doski ( Cambridge, CFF? 3-3-1 79kg) beat Dan Hardy (Nottingham, Roughouse 0-0)
def Rear naked Choke. R2 4.59 Considering this was his debut, Hardy did brilliantly
against the wiley veteran Doski, and took the fight to the EB vet all the way.
Doski with his experience, soaked it up & always hit back on the counter attack.
Charlie 'Secret Weapon' Francis (Ronin 0-0 92kg?) def Vismantas Dudlauskas (Lithuania,
2-2 95kg?) by Ref stoppage. R1 38 seconds. So this is the 'Secret Weapon' that
they've been whispering about at Ronin! A huge debut by the Ronin powerhouse.
He picks up Vismantas, dumps him and hits him till the ref stops the fight. Vismantas
never got a look in. - Also notable is that about half the hall gave Francis a
standing ovation BEFORE he stepped into the cage.
K1 Kickboxing Paul 'Semtex' Daley (Nottingham, Team KO 4-0 82kg) def Zydrunas
Jasiunas (Lithuania 4-1 77kg) 1m27 secs R1 KO. (Ref stopped fight after big knockdown).
The Semtex v Dex fight looks like it will be a cracker.
Frederick Fernandes (French Top Team 2-0 65.5kg) drew with Paul Sutherland (Gloucester
Roughouse 9-4 69kg) after all 3, 5 minute rounds. The bigger, hugely more experienced
Sutherland played the game we have seen him do time and again - Dominate from
the top and getting in heavy body shots. Fernandes did brilliantly considering
the experience and weight difference of the excellent Sutherland, and had periods
of dominance himself.
Shilkinis (Lithuania 2-2-1 82.1kg) def Alex Evans (Ronin, London Shootfighters
13-2 82kg) by KO. R1. 41 seconds. Bloody hell, who would have predicted this
looked at the fight records? This was shaping up to be a Weir-v-Reid style slugfest
when Nickolaus planted a heavy (left cross?) onto Evans' jaw. The gallant Evans
was the first to congratulate his tough opponent. Evans broke his knuckle hitting
Kickboxing James McSweeney (Ronin 1-0-2) def last minute replacement, Ritis Yashinash
(Lithuania 2-1) by unanimous JD after 3x3 minute rounds. Ritis, who had been lounging
in the bar, was drafted in at the last minute to replace McSweeney's opponent.
And what a great opponent he was - he took McSweeney all the way, giving back
the punishment, when you thought maybe he'd had enough. McSweeney will have done
his mentor Chris Ballard proud, with a tough yet showy performance.
