Kickboxing London Cox Event
Friday 17th May 2013
Holiday Inn, in Manor lane, Maidenhead London
ProKick's female powerhouse Samantha Robb is now the New British ISKA amateur Full-Contact champion - the tattooed dragon Robb, took the title in a bruising FIVE round non-stop contest which went to the final bell.
It was not all one way traffic for the Co.Down girl Robb. It was a toe-to-toe war with both girls fighting to be best in Britain. At the end of the contest the judges awarded it one way but it was close, a majority points verdict decision in favour of the girl from Tyrella beach, Samanth Robb.
It was blood sweat but no tears for ProKick's Alex Ciocoi - Alex Ciocoi is the new British champion, Alex stopped Londoner Jake Wells in the 5th round of his British 80kg title fight at London's Holiday Inn, in Manor lane, Maidenhead London.
It was a war of attrition for the ProKick fighter Ciocoi who ended up stopping Lee Wells in the 5th round – but not before looking shaky after some scary moments in the third round for Alex.
It the fourth round, Wells took a number of head shots and forced the referee Mick Fowls to administer a standing 8 count. The old saying is very true - Wells, was saved by the bell in the forth.
In the fifth round Alex started fast landing some good punches to Wells head and was clearly in trouble again - the team Cox corner, stopped the fight in 1;35 of the final round.
Credit to both fighters as some said it was a toss-up to what was fight of the night - Samantha Robb Vs Samantha Ryan or Alex Ciocoi Vs Lee Wells.
Whichever fight ticked your box, there is one thing for sure that the four fighters give it their all and both were excellent matches for the championships of Britain.
Big thanks to Marty Cox team for the opportunity to compete on their shows and to all the officials and team for the hospitality we received.
