KICKBOXING: Richards dominates to land crown

Dorset Echo: CHAMPION: Kickboxer Giles Richards CHAMPION: Kickboxer Giles Richards

GILES Richards is the new Southern Area Full Contact Kickboxing champion following a dominant performance against Rafal Kaminski.

Richards, who runs kickboxing classes in Weymouth, was on top throughout and his opponent, fighting out of Adrenaline Fight Club in Bristol, had no answer.

The contest at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre in Weston-super-Mare went the distance but Richards won every round to claim the title.

“I stuck to my game plan and as a result I won clearly,” said Richards. “Had I brawled with the lad I could have had a much harder night’s work.

“I had around 100 mates there supporting me which made the day much more enjoyable.

“Now this fight is out of the way I think I will work a little more on really sitting down into the shots to create a little more power.

“I just want to say a massive thanks to my sponsor,, for supplying all the Adidas gear and an even bigger thanks to Lee Peaty for his help with training.”

Richards could be back in the ring in March but before that he is organising a fight show for February 22.

Anyone who wants information on the show or his classes for children and adults should telephone 07852148734.
