We are now into the 3 weeks of preparation for our first show under the new and improved Feud Promotion, run by Shawn Burton and Alex Byland, will be showcasing the best full contact and K1 talent in the UK and as always the team have attempted to go one better than the previous promotion and so far we have always managed to do so and we are extremely pleased with the lineup once again – 11 November at the Lincoln Fight Factory.
This time the show is called First Feud (the first show under the feud Promotions brand) and is a show the whole family to enjoy with fighters travelling from Barnsley, Middlesborough, Wigan, Boston, Peterborough, Stanley, Leicester, Crowborough, Tamworth, Bloxwich, Lichfield, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Sleaford to fight on what is now one of England’s leading promotions and a must to date for all coaches diaries.
Priding his shows on very even 50/50 bouts Burton has once again pulled out all of the stops to ensure that this event tops any of the previous shows he has put on with some great title fights on the card and giving a lot of gyms a chance to take a belt home with them even if the fights do not involve a Lincoln Fight Factory fighter. If two fighters are in form then there is a good chance that they will meet each other for a title at the George Street based gym.
Once again we have split the promotion into two shows with the juniors showing their skills on an afternoon show, before the adults lace up their gloves for some brutal fights in the evening.
Headlining the junior show is a rematch between Lincoln Fight Factory’s Lukas Nanartavicius who is looking to add the ISKA -33kg British title to his ISKA British K1 title at -30kg, the WKA English K1 title at -33kg and the ICO World Gold Medal when he meets Contender Gyms Stevie weldrake in a rematch from Andy Melton’s show in Boston last week.. These two young lads put it all on the line in the quest for title glory with Lukas winning the WKA crown, he wants to fight the best and we made an open offer for all challengers, but it was the Weldrake’s camp at Contender Gym who offered a rematch and if it is anything like their first fight the crowd are in for a real treat.
Another rematch on the card and our second title of the afternoon see’s Wigan’s Kye Van Zeist battle it out with Fight Shacks Havey Gavin for the English FC title. Harvey has been on a great run of late, beating Kye in Septmeber, but the Wigan team feel they should have won, so this makes perfect sense to fight for the prestigious ISKA title.
Other eye catching bouts on the afternoon show see’s Combat Academy’s Owen Deakin fight Sam Bevan, this could potentially be the fight of the day between these two very stylish fighters, Adrenalines Alex Baker fighting Combat’s Sonny Greaves and Keegan Roberts old foe Luke Oades from Scunthorpe fighting Combat’s Seth Housey.
Other kids from the Lincoln Fight Factory appearing on the afternoon show see’s undefeated stars Lukas Venkus, Charlie Hodgson, Jacob Cody and Ruslan Gerasimovic.
Doors for the junior show open at 1:30pm with the first bout at 2:00pm.
If if junior show does’t already get your mouths watering then what we have in the evening really will. The evening see’s a mix of kickboxing, K1 and boxing all on the same card with a great bout between Hasting’s George French and Tamworth’s teenage sensation Jack Dilloway fighting over 5 rounds of full contact kickboxing, with the winner being put right in the frame to meet Craig Young for his British title on our super show in March.
The first title bout of the evening show see’s Combat Academy’s Gasan Gindra have his 4th fight with Assassins Tommy West Jr for the Junior British K1 title. The current score stands at 2-1 to Gindra but the Assassin’s camp are confident they can even the score on the 11th.
Coming off silver and gold medals at last weekends ICO World Championships, the inform Kraig Green will be looking to add the ISKA 5 Nations title to his collection when he challenges Ireland’s Morgan McEnroe for the -60kg crown. This could be a defining point in Kraig’s career as he really has been on a mission to turn things around losing his first 6 full contact fights before switching to K1 rules, a switch that his seen become one of the most popular, crowd pleasing and technically gifted fighters in the UK, with a record that stands at 8-2 under the K1 rule set.
The final title fight on the evening show see’s Keegan Roberts make his first defence of his European K1 title against Northern superstar Kyle Chester. Keegan currently holds titles from Midland right up to European level and won 3 silver medals last weekend, so is currently on a high. Chester really could be the one to rip Keegan’s belt away, boasting a 15-1 record, he will be full of confidence and looking to spoil the Roberts party.
Battles between Lincoln and Scunthorpe see’s some cracking K1 fights between Damian Nakwaski and Michael Hudak, Michał Grzegorczyk and Chris Loughin and Phil Robbins against Dave Carter.
Lewis Etoria looks to make is 2-0 in his K1 bout with Jacob Warrington from Cleveland, Jason Barnes returns to the ring in a boxing bout with Peterborough’s Brent Frith, Family and Friends Marcin Bednarz makes his boxing debut against Scunthorpe’s Lee Oldfield and DJ Tollerton will also feature on the card.
Another fight to watch out for is between Assassin Gyms Locran Matthews and Aivaras Oskikas from Musashi Gym in Peterborough. This really could be the fight of the evening.
