#RowenaBolt was the first ProKick fighter to step into the ring, at the weigh-in Rowena made the 55kg limit. The fight took no time to get started and with no feeling out process as the two fighters went for gold. The fight was an all-action match-up with the Spaniard, Eleny González walking forward and pushing Rowena on the back foot for the entire fight. Rowena landed some heavy shots but wasn't enough when the judges deliberated - the win went to the home girl, Eleny González - well done both girls.
A massive congratulations to Rafa Del-Toro for ten great fights on the card. With a special thanks for the hospitality given to the whole ProKick team.
#CharleneBest was the second ProKick fighter to go through the ropes at the #NightOftheBravesIII - the Belfast fighter faced, Vivian Martínez Hernández, in a non-stop action filled 3 rounder. Both fighters give their all and this time the judges give the Belfast fighter Best the nod. Nice work from the two young fighters.
