It was a big weekend for Hastings kickboxer Dan Brown who scored a knockout win in his first full-contact fight.
Hastings Kickboxing Academy instructor Carl Denne says: “Dan has been training very hard over the last few months and this showed in his performance.”
After winning a few light contact fights over the last year, Dan has now moved up into the Full contact world.
He made a a nervous start to his bout but Carl says it didn’t take Dan long to find his feet and range against his opponent Callan Wales from Worthing.
He said: “After a great little exchange from both men, keen to set an early pace and dominate in the first round, Dan landed a perfectly timed round house kick slowing Callan down. He followed this up with some fast hands dropping his man to the canvas for an eight count.
“Callan got back up but Dan was hungry for a strong finish. He was nice and composed and Dan went straight back in and as Callan went down for the second time the referee moved in and put and end to the bout.”
It all meant that Dan had won his first every full-contact bout in 45 seconds of round one, “It was a perfect,” says Carl
“This was a great first fight for Dan and I know we will see big things from him this year,” he added.
