Grieswald, Germany 2014
ProKick Belfast Fighters Alex Ciocoi and Darren McMullen competed in Germany for WKN World and European amateur titles:
Romanian born Alex Ciocoi now based and fighting out of Belfast, lost his bid for the WKN K1 style World crown. Ciocoi's World crown challenge was at 79.4kg but lost on points. The Belfast fighter gained valuable experience facing the stronger and more experience Sasha Alexander of the Ukraine. The fight was tit-of-tat for for the first 2 opening rounds, and at times the two counter fighters had a battle of wits with Sasha coming out on top. At the end Sasha Alexander was the more effective fighter and took an unanimous points win on all three judges cards retaining his WKN world crown. The champion done a brilliant job and so did Alex in just his 15th fight as a kickboxing. Credit to Alex for going to the end in the full 5 rounds, a nice technical fight that done him and ProKick proud.
Darren McMullen is never in a dull fight. The Ballygoawn joiner had the tools to force the fight from round 1 to especially the last round, No.4 - that's were he pushing the tough Wachs from pillar to post, looking as if he could force a stoppage at anytime. But it didn't happen and the champion Wachs fought back on the retreat, hanging-on to hear the final bell.
It took what seemed forever for the judges to collate their score cards and read out the decision. The ProKick team along with many ringsiders thought - this time, McMullan would take his WKN European title back off the German. But no, it was a sense of Deja Vu, it was a split decision in favour for David Wachs. McMullen was in another show-stopper and again was split with the judges. McMullen finished the stronger in the last round but Wachs got the nod from the judges and held on to his title yet again.
Could there be a trilogy - McMullan Vs Wachs III…and this time in Belfast?
