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.

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.

Just six weeks after her decision loss against top ranked UK muay thai fighter Sheree Halliday, Bad Company’s Sarah McCarthy takes the fight to the USA where she takes on experienced American female fighter Roxy “Balboa”Richardson at the Anaheim Convention Centre, Los Angeles, California on the 18th July.

Last week Bad Company’s Richard Smith told Fightnub.com:

“Sarah is looking great in the gym and really looking forward to the fight. Roxy has a lot of amateur experience and has won the  IAMTF US Women’s Lightweight Champion 2008 & 2009. She also does MMA and has her own site – http://roxyfit.com. She’s experience and obviously a local favourite but I think she has bitten off more than she can chew taking on Sarah and against Bad Company!”

Leeds lady McCarthy who looked impressive at Rumble at the Reebok at the end of May, is hoping for a good showing against her American opponent who despite her amateur experience is fighting for the first time under full Thai rules, and has had to look to Europe to take her Muay Thai to the next level.  Speaking to fightnub.com Roxy said:

“I think Sarah is a tough competitor. From what I can tell, she is active, high in the British rankings, serious about training hard and I know she comes to throw down – those are the type of fighters i look forward to competing against. So… game on! I feel strong mentally and physically. My training is challenging and varied as usual. I love training hard, so that’s never been a problem. My fight trainer is Jimmie Romero and my strength coach is Kris Germain. Between the two of them I never question my preparation.

I was able to find many fights as an amateur in California. I have been fighting now for about 6 years and including “smokers” I have almost 20 fights, but there are few female pro Muay Thai fighters in the US, so when I felt it was time for me to fight full rules Muay Thai the promoters had to look to Europe. The system is different here than it is in Europe we don’t’ have A, B and C class fighters, it’s just sanctioned amateur (non-padded) or pro. “Smokers”, unsanctioned bouts with padding are now illegal.

Whatever the outcome we wish both girls good luck, and hope that Sarah can elevate UK Mauy Thai in the states.
