All friends - Adam Peel secured a win with against the more experienced Deyanse in what some ringsiders said was the fight of the night.
Middleweight Darren McMullan was the only Prokick fighters to experience defeat – McMullen narrowly lost on a close points decision after a controversial knockdown in the second which seen the Dundonald man take a standing count which cost him the fight in a hard fought fight by both fighters.
McMullen's Coach, Billy Murray said: " A knock-down is classed when a fighter is put to the canvas with a result of a strike and that's what happened to Darren even if he was off balance which Darren was from the result of a kick he made - we had no dispute, it was the call of the Referee to count him to on the chin and more on. Marcus made a good fight, well done TEAM Redragonz."
Kickboxing dad Stuart Jess known by his gym members as 'gloves will travel' because, he never refuses a fight no matter against whom, where or even at a heavier weight class than his own. Stuart didn’t get a chance to break sweat after the long journey from Belfast to the London venue – The building worker Jess, was informed just as he stepped off the plane that his original opponent Ben Baah had a sudden death in his family and was unable to compete with him. Condolences to Ben and his entire family from us all at ProKick – After numerous phone calls, Mr Marty Cox organised a fighter for Jess. Sam Ward agreed to take the fight at 3 hours notice before the event was to start. Well done Sam, however promoters were trying to slot Sam and Stuart in on the first half of the show - unfortunately it didn't happen and Jess V Ward II will have to wait to share the ring again. Ward needed to leave to get back to work, thanks for coming down Sam.
Two opponents failed to go between the ropes the the Saintfield kicker so the Belfast boxer was handed a facile walkover win.
Prokick head coach Billy Murray said: “It was a great experience for our kickboxers to be invited by another promoter. " He added, " My team showed they knew their way around the ring and even though they are all amateurs they can mix it up and hold their own with the best fighters out there. I'm pleased what the team accomplished under the circumstances, long travel, long spells of waiting around, it was one of the longest shows I've been to in nearly 30 years.
