LAST NIGHT’S BOUT WILL BE FOLLOWED BY IMPI FC 2 THIS FRIDAY.
Reece McAllister was last night declared the Top King World Series 154 lb Champion, after an explosive night of Muay Thai action.
McAllister, a bright young prospect from the North-East of England, secured the belt in Hong Kong last night when Khayal Dzhanieve was forced to withdraw due to injuries sustained in his semi-final bout.
Dzhanieve had previously scored a controversial decision victory over Thai kickboxer Buakaw Banchamek, but was unable to fight in the finals.
Banchamek was widely expected to win the tournament but suffered a deep cut on his head and bled throughout much of his fight.
Both men delivered powerful strikes throughout the bout, using their entire arsenal. When it was all over the judges awarded Dzhaniev the decision victory to advance to the finals.
In the night’s super fights Rungravee Sasiprapa scored a decision victory over Wei Ning Hui.
Canadian Matt Embree dropped Sittisak Petchphayathai in the first round of their bout to secure a TKO victory, while Thongchai Sitsongpeenong defeated Colin Law via TKO.
Top King World Series 4 was held in conjunction with China’s growing fight organisation Kunlun and had major backing from Hong Kong’s Fight Factory.
The event kick starts a big week for Hong Kong fight fans, who will get a second taste of IMPI Fighting Championship World series this Friday night at Queen Elizabeth Stadium.
