Johan WESTERVELD new South African Champion

WESTERVELD Johan_RSAWKF AFRICA continental director and WKF SOUTH AFRICA president Mr. Mark HEY report about the last title fight event in Randfortein.

The Weigh in was held the evening before with Pretoria’s Johan Westerveld fighting out of All Styles Kickboxing weighing in at a fit looking 103 kgs and his opponent from Mile High Kickboxing in Randfontein, Robbie Streak weighing in slightly higher at 108kgs.

The fight was the main bout of a great nights entertainment with a South African Shidokan title going to Durban’s Ceeh Khubone over Nolan Bush from Randfontein after NINE rounds of all action Kyokushin, K-1 and MMA all in one wild fight. Both are great pros and put on a well conditioned all action show for the Kickboxing crowd and Khubone will definitely be seen in K-1 pro action shortly.

Another highlight was Mamelodi Kickboxing’s youngster Tshepo Thladi beating the vastly more experienced Shane Moorcroft for a SAKA South African pro-am title in K-1 which will lead to his turning professional for 2015 as a team mate to Tiger Ximba, Thabo Chauke and Given Majuba under the HeySports world Championship team banner.

A real talent and entertainer for the future.

The third pro fight saw the return after 8 years of ex SA K-1 Champion and TV personality Paul Rothman to the ring as he comfortably overwhelmed a rather disappointing Herman Oberholzer in what was expected to be a much tougher contest.
Anyway, title time with Westerveld taking a clear 10 – 9 first round before Robbie Streak caused huge problems for him in round 2 with a series of low kicks that had Westrveld struggling to stand and conceding the round to Streak.

 

HEY Marc_RSA
Mr. Mark HEY, WKF AFRICA continental director

To everyones amazement they were pretty much the last meaningful kicks he threw as for some reason he concentrated almost solely on his hands thereafter where Westerveld was clearly the more accomplished performer.

WKF AFRICA logoIt was without doubt the deciding factor in the fight as despite a bad cut to his already bleeding nose Streak never again really looked like retaking the upper hand and Westerveld ran out a unanimous points winner and new SA Superheavyweight Champion.

It was a courageous performance from Streak and suggests that both guys can carve out good futures for themselves with more experience and better conditioning.
Any Challengers out there for the big man ???

This was the first SAKA (South African Kickboxing Association) Superfight League event and was a great success despite the late enforced withdrawl of World, African and South African pro Champion Nkosinathi “Tiger” Ximba only four days before after being let down on the promised outside sponsorship moneys for the fight.
He will now headline the November event and bring real international standing and quality to the South African ring as top flight K-1 and Kickboxing is relaunched with a full 2015 schedule to follow and promoters from around the country already looking to climb on board.

YAMO Rickson_PNG_2

Port Moresby is the capital City in Papua New Guinea.

On September 7th was not just an amazing event but also a meeting of the board of directors of WKF Australia & Oceania.

Host of this important meeting was our director Mr. Robert WILESMITH.

Mangers from PNG, Australia and Indonesia attend this meeting. Venue was “Hotel Lamana” , the best Hotel in Port MORESBY.

Among the World Championships in Prague in November WKF appointed new WKF PNG president Mr. Rickson YAMO.

 

RICKSON “Powerhouse” YAMO (PNG), ANTHONY FORD (Canada) Crowned the “WKF World Kickboxing Champs”!

Powerhouse Promotions & Tru Warrior Gym promoted the “BIGGEST” show in Papua New Guinea’s history on Sunday 7th September 2014, featuring 2 Pro WKF World Titles, plus an “Action Packed” under card displaying the finest PNG fighters has to show. Check out the video of our visit to the Port Moresby Village to meet the many fans: PNG Video of Village visit Sept 2014

Many photos already in the gallery !!!

MAIN EVENT – Jarkko “Turbo Diesel” Jussila (Team Thunderlegs, Finland) Vs Rickson “Powerhouse” Yamo (PNG) for the WKF Pro World K1 Kickboxing Light Welterweight Title.

This is the “REVENGE MATCH” everybody in PNG all wanted to see. After Jussila beat Yamo back on June 1st 2013, Yamo was devastated by the close decision for the WKF World Full-Contact Rules Title. So, no stone was unturned, with Yamo coming out from the corner with lots of vigour and determination as soon as the bell sounded for the 1st Round. It was punch for punch, blow for blow, but Yamo’s leg-kicks were far too devastating for Jussila’s legs to take, with the fight lasting only 40 seconds of the 1st round. Rickson Yamo (PNG) is crowned the “NEW” WKF Pro World K1 64.5kg Light Welterweight Champion. See photos:

FORD Anthony_CAN_2Second “MAIN EVENT” – Anthony Ford (Team Thunderlegs, Canada) Vs Lee “Flash” Garap (PNG) for the WKF Pro World Muaythai Light Middleweight Title

The fight started of as predicted, with Lee Garap showing strong glimpses of strength & power, with fast kicks – thus earning the name “Flash”. But Ford proved to be a Muay thai Technical fighter, striking with knees and elbows with precision and “Take-Downs”. In round 2, Ford lifted up the tempo, striking Garap with vigorous Elbows, eventually dropping Garap with a “Brutal” elbow, breaking Garap’s nose.
