    Closed Combat Arena once again held female fights on it’s event.

    Boxing

    Danielle Kemp def Sarah Booth by judges decision over 3 rounds.

    Both girls were making their fighting debuts and put on a good show. Sarah had the harder punch but Danielle worked the cage better and used her movement to fire in a long series of punches that dropped Sarah in the first. Sarah kept fighting on but Danielle seemed to have a lot more speed in the 2nd and 3rd and took the judges decision.

    Kickboxing

    Claire Brannan (2-0-0) def Kerry Foster (0-0-0) by decision over 5 rounds
    Elimination bout for the Women’s Kickboxing Title

    This was a tough fight for both ladies. Kerry had a lot of speed and moved around to fire in plenty of hard shots, but for every flurry that she landed Claire powered forward and outstruck her. The pace was frantic for the full 5 rounds. Kerry tried to slow Claire with leg kicks but Claire replied with some big push kicks that drove her opponent back across the cage. This bout was an excellent elimination fight for the CCA Women’s Kickboxing Title that will take place on the next show in July.

    Unfortunately CCA’s two other female fighters weren’t on the show. Nicki Cronin (kickboxing) had to withdraw due to an injury and Lisa Newton’s (MMA) fight didn’t come to fruition. Both are planning on appearing on the next show.

    Just out of interest, i noticed that the two girls in the elimination bout for the women’s kickboxing world title had two fights and zero fights respectively. So how does this work? Is this record for their professional careers and they have had a number of amateur fights? Or are they just both really good even though they haven’t had any fights? Or are there so few people in their weight division that they’re considered to be up the top?

    I know there’s probably a reasonable explanation for this (which is why i’m asking- i’m just curious, not taking a dig at their skill levels or anything), it just seems a bit weird to me that they can be in the running for world titles after so few fights….? 😕

    and do you have kickboxing fights in cages?

    The kickboxing fight was a British Title fight not a World title.

    Claire is now 3-0, including a victory over a male opponent. She has also a lot of experience with full contact competitions and interclub fights (which aren’t included on her record).

    Kerry is from a club from a local city and was originally scheduled to fight another lady from our club. However due to her opponent being injured and Claire’s then withdrawing she was offered the chance of taking this title elimination fight.

    Yes we hold kickboxing fights in our cage. It works really well. Our show includes MMA, kickboxing, Muay Thai and Boxing rule fights. We aim to promote martial artists of all disciplines.

    Wasn’t this an exhibition match? if so, how can it count as her record?

    No Claire’s match against a male opponent was full contact and classed as a pro match up.

    Why when a woman fights a man must it be classed as an exhibition?? She mullied him and deserved the win.

    It became a full contact fight rather than an exhibition. It suited people.
