Fight night in Weston
PUBLISHED: 16:23 05 May 2011 | UPDATED: 16:23 05 May 2011
HIGH voltage fight action is set to raise the roof at Weston’s Winter Gardens this month when Combat Gym proudly presents the Muay Thai Fight Showcase – High Voltage!
Following on from the success of previous sell-out events, the third Muay Thai spectacular is promised to be the biggest yet.
Audiences are guaranteed another action packed, octane fuelled spectacular featuring several local fighters including Nick Daglish, Mat Allsworth, Vicky Wood and Brent Chambers all challenging some of the top fighters from Britain for titles.
Top of the bill will be Combat Gyms very own Kade Sherlock who is the current WKA British Champion defending his title.
Muay Thai originates from Thailand and means ‘fight free’. It is the fighting art of eight limbs and is usually regarded as a very hard, external style involving boxing techniques, hard kicking, knee and elbow strikes.
Muay Thai fighters develop a very high level of physical conditioning and strength, and because of its roots in heavily Buddhist Thailand, some consider it also to have a very spiritual aspect as well.
The showcase takes place at the Winter Gardens on May 14 at 5pm, with doors opening at 4pm.
Tickets, priced £20 in advance or £25 on the night, are available from the box office on 01934 417117 or online at www.thewintergardens.com
