Posted by  | Categories: News

K-Star Legacy’s Dan Edwards, who was already the S-3 world Muay Thai champion, went up in weight and challenged the hard hitting Adrian Garlonta of Romania for his second world title in April 2018.

Dan secured a convincing points victory and claimed the MTGP light heavyweight world title. Just a few months later Dan defended his title against Andrea Rizzi of Italy.

Again Dan schooled his opponent for the full five round and successfully defended his belt.

Now on the 6th April Dan will come back down to his natural weight and challenge UK Muay Thai legend Michael Wakeling for the MTGP Super Middleweight world title.

Tickets are available in the gym.

Reality TV star Aaron Chalmers from the very popular show Geordie Shore came to train at K-Star Legacy. For those who didn’t know Aaron is a big fan of MMA and has already fought on the UK’s leading mixed martial arts promotion BAMMA.

Aaron is due to fight again on BAMMA on the 15th Sept at Wembley Arena. With that in mind and the fact that K-Star Legacy’s chief instructor Damien Trainor has been working with a mixture of top UFC and BAMMA fighters. Aaron had contacted Damien to help tighten up his striking in preparation for his contest.

Victory at the WRSA championships

Posted by  | Categories: News

K-Star Legacy had a great day the WRSA amateur British championships. We had four fighters enter and by the end of the day we came away with three new amateur British champions.

Originally we had 5 fighters due to compete but Jordan Matthews opponent didn’t show up. We were really upset about this as Jordan had been looking sensational in training.

First up for us was little Callum Walsh. Callum Obviously set a trend for us by winning the first of the belts for K-Star Legacy.

Next up was Ewelina Gorka, Ewelina had a slow start but came alive in the last round. She lost on points due to the early rounds but had apparently broken her opponents ribs in the last round.

Sharn Shelley had two thunderous fights which where action packed from start to finish. He stopped his first opponent and won on points in his second fight to win the WRSA British open title.

Then we just had 17yr old Ben Gordon move up to the adult division to also win the WRSA British open title in his weight category.

Myself and Simon Whitehead are extremely proud of everyone who competed today…well done everyone
