Jakawan wins at Ignition

November 16, 2012

Sunday November 11, 2012 saw Champions Gym Fight Team’s Jakawan Hill-Martdee taking on Arachnid Muay Thai’s Craig Bovill at Ignition Muay Thai. The bout was to be Jakawan’s second, whilst it was Bovill’s fourth with both fighters weighing in at 72.5 kilograms even on weigh-in day.

The bout started well with both landing some nice kicks and punches, Jakawan evading some high kicks of Bovill and using some nice knees in the grapple. Round two saw Jakawan pull ahead with some well timed kicks and dumps in the grapple; Bovill using his ring skill and experience in an attempt to try and over power Jakawan. In round three it was down to the wire as both again went hammer and tong with it going right down to the judges score cards. At the decision it was Jakawan who was awarded the win by points majority.

A big thank you to all the members, family, friends & supporters of Champions Gym – Without such a strong support network, victories such as this would not be possible. Congratulations to Jakawan Hill-Martdee for a great win against a tough, more experienced opponent who was rock solid in his performance on the day. Keep an eye out for Jakawan in the near future.
