MARTIAL ARTS: Quinn wins for promoter Giles

Dorset Echo: DEBUT DELIGHT: Giles Richards, left, with student Anthony Guinn DEBUT DELIGHT: Giles Richards, left, with student Anthony Guinn

WEYMOUTH kickboxing inst-ructor Giles Richards got his career as a promoter off to a great start at Club Neo in Yeovil.

The full contact show proved to be a huge success with Richards managing to make the event a complete sell out.

Fighters from up and down the country, including some of Richards’ own, took part with Alex Reid acting as the host and MC.

One of Richards’ students from the Matt Fiddes Martial Arts School in Weymouth, 38-year-old Anthony Quinn, made his debut on the night, and won.

Fighting a full contact K1 contest, he won every round against his much younger opponent.

“Me, his friends, and all the students at our Weymouth club are so proud of him,” said Richards, who will be running a similar show, also in Yeovil, in July.

Meanwhile, following his Southern Area title win at the end of last year, Richards has accepted the offer of an English title fight at the end of April.

There are classes for all ages and abilities at Richards’ club in Weymouth, and for information, telephone 07852148735

Weymouthtruth says...

Went to this show and have to say the genral standard
Was very poor with all the Yeovil fighters losing there
Bouts, the only winner from mr Richards club was the Weymouth
Lad who again seemed very lucky to be given the win?
These lads are very poorly trained and most are nowhere near ready
To compete.
