    Hi here’s some more info on the 2 fights

    Lisa v Gemma
    Lisa was originally supposed to fight MMA but her opponent dropped out with an injury and Lisa accepted a kickboxing fight. Then the opponent for that pulled out on the morning of the show with a ‘I’m not coming’ phonecall. Gemma was supposed to be boxing and had a similar situation with a very late pullout. So Lisa said fine I’ll fight boxing, for the first time, and took the fight.
    The two ladies went toe to toe for the first minute but better cardio and footwork gave Lisa the advantage and she began to pick Gemma off, driving her into the cage and forcing her to cover up in the first round. The second round was more of the same, Lisa opened up and Gemma received 2 warnings for dropping her head low. Lisa then came flying back in and Gemma had no option but to cover up as Lisa through straight and hook combinations to force the ref to step in and end the fight.

    Claire v Steve
    So we held a male v female fight. People on the boards in the UK were giving it the old males have better cardio and more power etc speak but Claire soon proved the old adage wrong. She had a solid first round catching Steve with her powerful right hooks and took the first round. The second was a lot closer as Steve upped his work rate and caught Claire with a couple of uppercuts and a round house kick to the head. Into the final round it was looking equal. Both fighters looked tired but it came down to the sheer number of punches that Claire was connecting with. Claire threw everything at Steve and did enough to take the fight on a judges decision.

    Hope this gives people a better picture of what the fights were like

    Sounds interesting. The first fight sounds very exciting considering all the ones that dropped on her at the last minute then she comes in and decides that she will fight a boxer and beat her at her own game. I find that amazing.

    Then we have man vs woman. I bet that the crowd jusat loved that. How did they react when it came back to a descion? Did they agree with the judges? I know that sometimes the crowd can be pretty rough.

    Are you guys going to have this on DVD or anything?

    Claire was the home town girl and is very well supported at our events. There was no dispute that she took the fight and no dispute about the result from the crowd.

    We do not tolerate booing at our event no matter where a fighter comes from – if you step in the cage you deserve everyones respect.

    Lisa is getting ready to break into semi pro rules MMA in the UK and has been working a lot of stand up with our coach to get ready for it. She decided a boxing match would be a good way to test herself, and also she didn’t want to let the promoters down.

    From the description, it sounds like this Steve was not conditioned enough. It was a three round fight, right? So what was he doing in the first round?

    Also, what were the relative ages/weights, and records/experience of the two fighters?

    The stats for the 2 fighters was identical, possibly Steve was a little heavier than Claire.

    In the first round Claire unloaded on him and didn’t let him get started.

    Steve’s conditioning didn’t come into it, he was simply worn down by a stronger opponent, who just happened to be female.
