‘Irish’ Barry Hickey wins bout
Sunday July 30, 2012 saw Champions Gym MMA coach 30 year old ‘Irish’ Barry Hickey taking on Rockingham Fitness’ Anthony Mader in a three round Muay Thai rules bout at PAMT 2 (Pure Adrenaline Muay Thai 2).
The bout was exciting from the opening bell with neither taking a step backward trading heavily with punches and kicks. Round two saw Hickey settle taking more control of the bout landing some clean knees and punches whilst in the clinch. Round three Hickey again came out guns ablaze landing several unanswered punches; Mader seemed overwhelmed by the onslaught but never giving in.
At the final bell it was Hickey awarded the unanimous winner by judges’ decision. Congratulations to Barry Hickey and a big thank you to all the members, friends and supporters of Champions Gym – Without you this would not be possible!
