STORM UK FIGHTS AT LOCAL PRIDE 4!
4 Fighters from STORM UK fought at an amazing boxing and kickboxing show over the weekend, coached eagerly from the corner by our Chief Instructor Sensei Wayne Pearl and Junior Instructor Paul Lawrence. Weigh ins began at 4.30pm with two fighters making the weight required after a short notice weight drop. There was a quick face off for the IMPACT Photographer, before being able to tuck into some healthy snacks to fuel up ready for the evening. The evening kicked off at 7pm with Ethan Lawrence first out. Ethan fought well, but came runner up after stoppage. Our next fighter up was Morgan Holland who went the full 3 rounds to have a close decision in the scoring, and came runner up after losing out by one point. Jack Middleton was out straight after and again went the full three rounds, only for it to be declared a draw and having to fight a fourth decider, where Jack just lost out by one point again to become runner up. The Storm crew were able to watch some of the fights, before the boxing bouts began. Our man Joe Mitchell stepped up at short notice for a boxing match, and after taking a sharp blow, had his fight stopped by the ref, despite Joe wanting to carry on! The fighters soaked up the atmosphere and we received some very good feedback and hopefully we shall be there at PRIDE 5!
