Last month, Kombat Arts hosted a live boxing event to raise funds to support Muay Thai coach Kru Edgar de Nobrega who is battling with a rare form of cancer called Ependymoma.
It was an action-packed event which was made possible by the many sponsors and volunteers that helped out.
In case you missed it, here were the results of the night:
In the Female Elite Novice category, Jessica Ancheta of Kombat Arts gave her opponent – Jenna Karon of Ajax Bocing Club – a standing 8 count twice.
McKenzie Wright of Kombat Arts and Jessica Burgess of Top Glove Boxing won Fight Of The Night honours for their performance in the Female Elite Open category.
Masood Masad and Manny Pasos – both from Kombat Arts – put on a great exhibition match representing the Male Elite Novice division.
Other fights included:
Savvy Gill (Kombat Arts) v. Tania Walters (Kombat Arts)
