An excellent inaugural promotion for the debut of full rules muay thai in New Jersey! From up and coming local talent, established fighters, through elite international fighters -- this was a well-run, exciting event. And the FIVE POINTS FIGHT TEAM definitely brought their A-game to the show:
Bill Chiu v. Mike Gianone (Impact Partial Arts)
This was a non-step battle from the opening bell. The young and
aggressive Gianone threw repeated heavy punch combinations, while Bill opted to mix his punches and low kicks. Gianone seemed the stronger fighter, but already appeared winded by the end of round 1. Round 2 started the same way, until Gianone started mixing in knees and kicks of his own. A hard knee to the rib brought Bill's hands down and took his breath away and a high kick stunned him, drawing the referee's count. Unable to shake off the body blow, the fight was stopped by referee in round 2.
Youyung Cho v. Ricardo Silvario (Gold Team Fighters)
An undefeated muay thai record and a strong, awkward style made Silvario confident through round 1. But Youyung stayed focused and intent on closing the distance Silvario wanted for his style, gradually setting into a rhythm and landing harder, cleaner combinations throughout the 2nd and 3rd rounds. By the end of the bout, Youyung's left cross and left roundhouse and forward movement effectively neutralized Silvario as a threat, resulting in a unanimous decision for Youyung.
Vincent Hui v. Spencer Grekoski (Weapons 9/Strategic Combat)
WKA US Nationals winner Grekoski is young, strong and aggressive and he used all of that to win the 1st round of this bout. Vincent remained unflappable as always, worked into his pace, and turned the fight around with dominant front kicks and left hooks. A very fine technical display by both fighters, but a very clear win by decision for Vincent.
The next Warriors Cup event will be December 13th. FIVE POINTS has already promised fighters for the event; check back for event details as they become available.
