Firstly, what a great event!

The guys at Fight Factory really did a good job putting this event together. The event was hosted at The Ring boxing gym in Cape Town to a full house.

The evening started off with some Amateur White Collar boxing which was very entertaining. Both males and females competed with the females putting up a great fight just like the males.

The MMA bouts started thereafter and did’t last that long because when you’re getting hit with MMA gloves instead of boxing gloves, it makes all the difference. Timothy Steenkamp made his debut and dominated most of the fight over his opponent. JP Rousseau showed a lot of heart but in the end the judges gave the W to Timothy via Split Decision.

The next fight was Corne Blom vs Jayde Mitchell. Blom won in spectacular fashion when mounted and put a beating down on Jayde Mitchell in the second round. The ref had to jump in and called the fight giving Blom the win via TKO.

The fight between Jaco Smit and Juan Bezuidenhout ended very quickly when Bezuidenhout took the back of Smith and began to rain punches down. The fight was stopped with Bezuidenhout winning via TKO in round one.

There were some serious knockouts that happened that night and one of them was when Faeez Jacobs fought Edwin Manhando. When Faeez connected that shot on Edwin I swear I felt it from the crowed. This happened in the second round after Manhando dominated the ground in the first round.

The next knockout happened when Chester Kruger defeated Brendon Abrahams in devastating fashion after landing a knee to the jaw in under 30 seconds!
The last fight was between Rafel Wozniak and Alain Kulenfuka. After a five round war, Wozniak won via Unanimous Decision. Well done to all the fighters that participated and again, well done to Fight Factory!
