Tear Up at the Tower 3

Posted by  | Categories: News

We are are just a few days away until the Tear Up at the Tower 3 event which is on the 1st December at the Tower Ballroom in Edgbaston.

Here is a quick write up about a few of the headline fights courtesy of the K-Star Blog written by Adam Boyce.

Adrian Maguire vs Reece Thompson

Reece who had an outstanding junior career, has just taken former World Champion Dan McGowan the distance. After the fight Dan said that Reece ‘is by far the toughest lad I’ve ever fought and took it to me up until the final bell’. Which is an amazing statement from a former World champion who has been competing regularly in the stadiums in Thailand!

Reece himself is just back from an extended stay in Thailand where he also had a couple of fights, this really will be a tough challenge for Adrian.

Adrian from K-Star has been plagued by pullouts over the years had a good start to the second half of the year with 2 wins in a row, but was once again left without an opponent for Tear Up 2 when his planned opponent Gurpreet Swali had to pull out due to injury, hopefully this will be 3 wins in a row on 1st December at the Tower Ballroom in Birmingham.

Mark Timms vs Phil Burke 

Mark Timms from K-star will be having his first A class bout against Phil from Leeds. Burke is a very experienced fighter that has fought in many different weight divisions and also took on the talented K-star fighter Dan Edwards when not many others would. His skills acquired through entering the ring numerous times should be a massive challenge for Mark Timms.

Mark last fought in October pulling off a draw with Juan Cervantes at Tear up at the Tower 2. It was a tough match that went five solid rounds and one the crowd overly enjoyed.

Corey Phillips vs Danny Hendle

Corey Phillips from K-star and Danny Hendle will go head to head once again in Birmingham almost one year to the day. The last time they fought it was a close fight with Hendle getting the nod. Both lads put in such a good performance people were talking about a rematch before the fight had even ended.
Hendle is a dangerous and experienced boxer, having fought and trained in Thailand on several occasions. He’s strong fast and knows his way around the ring.
Since they met Corey has been racking up some good wins, stopping George Jarvis in the final of the Super League to pick up the title and also taking Ben Campbell’s British Celtic title in fantastic fashion.
Two young, hungry lads and stars of the future!

Tickets are still available for this event at any K-Star branch.

Posted by  | Categories: News

K-Star/K-Star Legacy fighter Dan Edwards scored a first round knock victory over the ISKA European champion Diago Calado in Leeds. Unfortunately the belt was not put on the line but this was a massive win for Dan’s career and will definitely put him forward for bigger and better things.

K-Star promotions next event Tear up at the Tower 3 will be on the 1st Decemeber at the Tower Ballroom in Edgebaston, Birmingham. We will have tickets at the gym with in the next few weeks.
