WKN Corsica Cup Tournament Winner - July 2012
WKN tournament winner 'Saida' from Belgium he won the K1 style Oriental rules tournament he faced De Wulf of (France)
De Wulf started quick throwing his trademark low kicks; Saida was well aware and countered the Frenchman’s attacks. The first couple of rounds looked even with both men showing good technique but Saida being that bit sharper, even though he had already finished 4 rounds with Darren McMullan. The last couple of rounds De Wulf started to tire relying on his low-kick and his good right hand; however Saida had more variety in his technique and looked stronger and fitter at the final bell.
It was down to the judges but I don't think it was a hard job as they could only see it one way - Saida from Osman's gym in Belgium.
After the decision the French team did not take the verdict well thinking they should have won. Part of victory is about being as magnanimous in defeat as you are in victory. Take it on the chin, move on, get better and come back and win.
