Massive fight ! Liam Harrison arguably pound for pound the UKs best fighter, if not one of the world’s best pound for pounds, takes on Andrei Kotsur the devastating Eastern European champion.

Andrei Kotsur

3 time WKN World Professional Champion 2004, 2005, 2006

WAKO European Champion 2004
Kings of the Ring European Grand Prix Champion – 2003

WPKA World Champion 2009

WKN European Champion – 2003

Fights – 123 Wins- 115 win By KO- 43

UK homeboy Liam is coming of a decisive win over Thai legend Anuwat at the MEN recently.

This has the potential of a real grudge match as Andrei  knocked out Harrison’s teammate Richard Cadden when they last met.

I was one of the judges when Kotsur knocked out Richard Cadden and I remember at the time looking at Liam and thinking “I know what’s going through his mind” well finally it’s time – Darren Phillips, Muay Thai judge, referee and owner of GFC Muay Thai, Buy Lancashire.

Liam Harrison : “cant wait for this …gonna train superhard and give everyone a great fight”

Following on from the success of the Rumble At The Reebok shows, the promoters FightInc  will be staging a Muay Thai show at the Olympia in Liverpool on the 20th June. The Olympia is a fantastic venue. Its been the home to North West MMA for ages and its great to see a quality Muay Thai promotion establishing itself at the venue.

The show will be a mix of A,B and C class fights.

The main event will hopefully see the return of a big Liverpool Muay Thai favourite but we cant say much as this stage.  FightInc also promise to have some interesting matches in the pipe line.  Stay tuned for more on this show as we get news.

Andy Thrasher vs Frankie Hudders.

The contracts have been signed. ITS ON !

Frankie Hudders has signed the contract to fight Andy Thrasher at Rumble At The Reebok 2, Sat 15th May at the DeVerre Whites , this will be a defense of Andy’s WKA World title at 67kgs.

Darren Phillips, owner of GFC Muay Thai in Bury, Lancashire and Andy Thrashers trainer/coach said of Andy’s next opponent;

Frankie Hudders for me has been the light welter and welter weight operator in this country for what seems like for ever. He’s not been beaten by a British fighter for over 15 years and has fought all over the world against the best out there, being two times world champion already! People have actually asked me why have I taken this fight against such a clever and dangerous fighter, to which I have said why would we not?? Why would you not want to test yourself against one the best fighters this country has ever seen!!!!!! There is a poster being produced with both Andy and Frank on it and I saw a sneak preview of it yesterday and got a little excited at the prospect it has to be said. I can’t wait!

Andy Thrasher is coming off a spectacular victory over late stand in Hakim Bazoumbou of Holland at the MEN Arena recently . Andy Thrasher won by TKO fef stoppage 2min into round 2 with a devastating uppercut elbow that broke the jaw of the tough Dutchman and knocked out two of his teeth.

Fankie Hudders is currently training in Thailand.

Rumble At at the Reebok 2 on the 15th May. Its going to be an awesome show !

Following on from the spectacular success of the inaugural Rumble At The Reebok, Double Vision’s Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads’ Night has gone from strength to strength.

The Ultimate Lads’ Night was initially planned as a small scale low key affair in one of the venue’s secondary function rooms. However, the outstanding success of Double Vision’s first event meant that promoter Darren Morris has now moved his second Rumble At The Reebok outing to the main event suite at the Reebok Stadium’s four star DeVerre Whites Hotel, vastly increasing capacity in order to cope with the upsurge in demand.

Interest in Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads Night hasn’t stopped there however. Double Vision’s partnership with the UK’s leading combat sports importer, wholesaler and retailer FIGHTSHOP.com and their specialist e-marketing division FIGHTPICS and combat sports blog FIGHTNUB has seen Rumble At The Reebok promotional material reach over 20,000 combat sports consumers in the UK alone.

The effect of this intense and co-ordinated marketing campaign and partnership between FIGHTSHOP.com and Double Vision has now seen the Rumble At The Reebok brand being picked up on European fight forums. Once such forum, the Dutch site FIGHTTALK.NL, saw a Rumble At The Reebok post made by a Dutch resident receive over 150 views in little over 20 minutes and it isn’t stopping there either.

One thing is for certain, the Rumble At The Reebok brand is going places that no other UK promotion has been and fighters who appear on any of their future shows are going be appearing on a platform that will do wonders for their profile and fight careers not to mention the sport of Muay Thai in general.
Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads Night takes place this Friday 14th August at the 4 star DeVerre Whites Hotel at the Reebok Stadium Bolton.
