 When she first took up kickboxing eight years ago, Newcastle girl Serin Murray never thought she would be fighting a second fight, let alone her fifth world title fight which she will do on Saturday night at Newcastle Panthers.
The 30-year old first got into the sport when a friend suggested they try some kickboxing classes at local gym. Enjoying the sport but realising they wouldn’t be tested in their current classes, they went looking for Rob Murdoch Senior, a well-known kickboxing and thai-boxing trainer in Newcastle.
At that stage she thought she might only have one kickboxing bout – to try it out, so to speak.
But Murray well and truly caught the fighting bug and has been training to fight under Murdoch for the past eight years.
“We’re not a money-making martial arts gym,” she says of her fighting home. “Rob produces fighters there.”

Mundine vs Alvarez Speed vs Power by Tomas Vysokai

Views: 31020ADD COMMENT 7 years ago

 Anthony Mundine showed that he is still the man after rather an easy victory over hard-hitting Rigoberto Alvarez Wednes­day night at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre.
 
It was obvious straight from the start that Alvarez (27–3–0 20KO) came to hurt Mundine, (42–4–0 25KO) attacking the body with straight lefts (southpaw) and right loopy punches. Mundine’s defensive style mixed with lightning fast jabs and right hooks was frustrating the Mexican as he looked too slow.

Views: 46820ADD COMMENT 7 years ago

Cronulla fighter/promoter Ryan Waters found it difficult to beat the count after the explosive right overhand from NZ Lee Oti last night.
The few hundred spectators were stunned and remained very quiet after seeing Waters (now 21W 4L 2D) down and out who had previously fought Oti (now 15W 11L 1D) over three years ago.
Waters was very aware of his power as he admitted just before the fight that he has never been punched harder when the two first met.
