Two of the nations top female high kicking teenage champions will go head-head on June 23rd at the Clayton hotel at #BillyMurray s International #ProKickEvent.
Recently crowned Jnr world champion, Molly Concannon who fights out of Kombat in Derry / LondonDerry will face a Jnr Irish title holder Grace Goody from #ProKickGym over three rounds in a K1-Style kickboxing match.
'The battle of the teens' has the making of a show-stopper as both camps believe in their young protege’.
One of Molly Concannon’s coach’s Carian McFadden form Kombat in Derry / Londonderry said:
“ This kid is something special! I’ve coached professional fighters in full contact and K1 and I’ve never seen anyone with the power and determination as this girl”
Carian added, Molly came to Kombat with a fantastic record of 8-2, credit to her previous coaches, but with some fine tuning from her striking coach Kevin Anderson, he truly believes she is the best 58kgs junior in Ireland."
Kevin finish off by telling us “This kid is something special! I’ve coached professional fighters in full contact and K1 and I’ve never seen anyone with the power and determination as this girl”
Molly took part in the WKU Junior World Cup in May, despite her Danish and English opponents pulling out she fought her fist low kick bout. Molly adapted well and claimed the coveted WKU World Title.
This will be an interesting match-up said Billy Murray the promoter and coach to the #ProKickTeam:
"I’d like to thank the Kombat team for excepting the match between Molly & Grace. The girls have similar records with Grace 7-0.
I know how hard Grace trains and would have no hesitation in pitching her up there with any teenage, not just in Ireland but anywhere in the world."
The entire #ProKickteam will act as the supporting programme to the main event at the Clayton Hotel. That's when top of the bill match, Johnny ‘Swift' Smith (Bangor) will challenge Korean fighter Jihoon Lee for the WKN Intercontinental professional title.
