All the lastest KO Gym news
A fantastic night of Muay Thai at York Hall brought thrills and spills in equal measure. Good performances were on show from our K1 specialists with Alfie producing some stunning non-orthodox kicks and winning by a mile and Roberto showing great technique and shape to win his match comfortably.
Big Mo and Leon excelled at the recent Ringmasters show winning the Super Heavyweight and Heavyweight titles with some explosive technique. Leon won by two knockouts and Big Mo produced some stunning low kicks to bring home the title.
Ringmasters showed the strength in depth we have at KO Muay Thai, where we were able to send two novice fighters to an event where seasoned professionals were fighting.....and we still brought home the titles.
Well done chaps, you did KO proud.
