St. Helens 25th July


Mehdi Firoozi vs Kev Ward (Commonwealth Title)

This promised to be a difficult fight for Mehdi against Kev who is 6′ 5″ having a reach  and height advantage under Full Muaythai Rules(FTR). Mehdi was really nervous having not fought for nearly 10 months but had trained really hard and needed to win this fight to him back on track. The first round started off pretty even with both fighters feeling each other out, Mehdi scored with some strong punch and leg kick combinations and Kev caught Mehdi with a glancing elbow. Mehdi came out stronger and more confident in the 2nd catching Kev with more kicks to the legs and started scoring to his body. Kev always looked dangerous caught Mehdi with some strong knees to the body. 2 minutes in the 2nd round Mehdi caught Kev with a left uppercut and right hook which dropped Kev who took an 8 count. He continued but Mehdi seeing the end in sight unleashed a barrage of ferocious punches on Kev who looked in trouble and was not defending himself or fighting back. The referee stopped the fight and Mehdi won the title by TKO.

Mehdi is back and you will be able to see him fight again at the end of November in Doncaster.
