Impakt boys put on a good show at Libogen Fight Night
Last Sunday saw another of the ever-popular Libogen Fight Nights take place at Southorn Stadium in Wanchai and, as usual, Impakt was well represented...
Two of our trainers, Alvin and Rein, were joined by Chris Scott - one of our members seen on a regular basis at the gym! For those who missed the fights here's a quick rundown of all the action from our boys:
Chris fought very well, executing some vicious elbows and knees which prompted the referee to end the fight due to a bloody cut on his opponent's face. Winner by TKO, Round 1.
Rein's fight started with a bang, dazing and knocking down his opponent with a left hook at the beginning of Round 1. His opponent, Bee Cho, did not stay down and back after taking the eight count. The fight proceeded with Rein landing high kicks and left punches to the face. On the second round, Bee fought back fiercely, landing an elbow to Rein's face, which left him with a small cut. He fought back with leg, body and sweeps which ultimately won him the round. Having won two rounds his corner were cautious to take care of his cut and make sure Bee couldn't take advantage and cause a stoppage, so he kept his distance with push kicks and lateral movements. Rein was declared winner by unanimous decision.
Alvin fought a very tall Japanese fighter and had a hard time finding his range, whilst his opponent took advantage of his obviously longer reach. Alvin fought bravely and kept up the pressure and in the second round we see him starting to find his rhythm, landing some strong left hooks. His opponent clearly didn't like this and started to clinch, gaining some valuable points against the shorter Alvin. The third round opened with Alvin again landing some nice left hooks followed by right low kicks which were countered by yet more clinching. Unfortunately, even after a valiant attempt by The Blade in the third round, it would prove to be too late and his opponent was awarded the fight by split decision.
