Ancient Battle - Fight Review

23mayKunKhmer_380A first time Kun Khmer event was held at Cabravale Diggers and once again we were in your corner to give you a full review. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this event so the best I could offer it is an open mind and a willingness to learn from this new experience. Before we get to the review, you may be asking yourself: what is Kun Khmer? I sought out the promoter to explain this to me as I myself wasn’t sure. He sat me down and in a very brief explanation pointed out that the Kun Khmer originated from Cambodia that was used in warfare many years ago and is the origin of muay thai as we know it today. To further explain, while The Thai Kingdom was under Cambodian rule, the Thai people adopted this martial art as their own and labeled it as Muay Thai. This has now evolved to the modern day muay thai as the world know it at this present time. So, now with the history lesson out of the way we can continue with our review. The night was and international affair with our national pride on the line.

Fight Review- Ryan Waters Fight Night

Views: 21800ADD COMMENT 9 years ago


RW02You can always bet for a capacity crowd at Sharks Leagues Club. The venue was packed to the rafters early in the night. If your plan was to have a boys night out and sink a couple of tinnies then this was the place to be. Only problem is that you might've waited in the queue a little longer than usual, as it seemed to be a thirsty night for the punters.
The night started out with 4 amateur fights, an impressive display of young talent which re-assures us boxing fans that amateur boxing is alive and well. The highlight of the amateurs would have been the fight between 2 lads from the local footy clubs – Tony (Sugar) Ray Vs Hayden Garn. These boys almost brought the house down. A fight worthy of a main event. As the boys slugged it out for bragging rights the crowd was thoroughly entertained with some big blows and a show of great endurance. It was a hard fight to judge and it could have only gone one way… and that of course is a draw.
