Incredible event in Boracay gym last night . I arrived at 7m just when it was about to start . Sat in front of the training area and just absorbed the surrounding !
Everyone was training and getting ready for the fight , some were standing on the side of the ring supporting their friends, some just having a beer on the side of the cage . Place was full with people … Foreigners and locals .. Even children squeezing in front of other against the cage to get a glimpse on first fight …
FIGHT NUMBER 5 !! MY FAVOURITE ..
It was ON . I got an amazing seat in front of the cage and opened a can of beer .. Everyone was anxious to see what will go on ..
First few fight went fast , as everyone just could not get enough of this ..The fight number 4 arrived where a foreigner (Who is not a regular member of Legacy gym , just passing by ) went in for the fight .. No one really knew what to expect … And damn .. This fight was really fast .. Foreigner won match in couple of minutes and done .. In the first round . WOW !
I did not see that coming …
Then was a little break with 3 guys having a drinking game . Winner – English man !
Fight number 5 !! My favourite .. First Female fight in Legacy gym . Oh Man … This was tough . “Joanna” from Legacy VS ” Ice ” a visitor . As soon as the fight started Joanna was all over Ice .. Within few minute she had her cornerred and .. Of course after 3 rounds she was pronounced a winner !! Crowd was pleased ..
Then from there to more shocking fight that lasted 7 seconds ! Yap .. That`s it .. It took 1 kick and poor guy was on the ground blacked out for a second and then just not able to continue , not his best night , i guess ..Medical services came in the cage . After few minutes of check-ups he stood up and faced the loosing side .
CHILDREN SQUEEZING IN FRONT OF OTHER AGAINST THE CAGE TO GET A GLIMSE ON FIRST FIGHT …
From there a fight number 7 was going on for a while (opposite of the previous ). Im still not sure who was the winner , ” Visitor” or ” Legacy ” .. Missed this part .
And the best for last .. This fight was amazing . 2 tiny guys walked out in the cage .. And started to fight .. They just kept rolling and punching all the time .. No time wasting .. Legacy took the last Win ..And the “Visitor ” was left in the cage on the ground , surrounded by medical services .( Think something was wrong with his shoulder )
I enjoyed this event and at first few minutes was scared all those people fighting .. Felt so sad for those who lost , and proud for those who got winning titles .
At the end of the day – Great Job Legacy gym and hands down for ” Visitors ” . Incredible entertainment !
