Shane Wiggand vs All TarehShane Wiggand (Won TKO) vs. Ali Tareh

Shane Wiggand and Ali Tareh brought a very unique fight to Shin Do Kumaté because Ali comes from a more Martial Arts background with the last few years competing in professional boxing matches.

Shane has a Muay Thai background and although he originally fought MMA, his passion went towards Muay Thai and he spent some time training in Thailand.

Round one started out with Ali leading using his boxing skills throughout the round and he took Shane down with a spinning back hand followed by a strong right punch, but Shane beat the count. In the second round Shane managed to close the gap and came in strong delivering a lot of hard and flying knees to the head. The referee stopped the fight due to a big gash above Ali’s eye giving Shane the win by TKO.

Clifton Brown vs Stephen RichardsClifton Brown (Won by TKO) vs. Stephen Richards

This main event featured Clifton Brown, a world champion from Toronto, Canada against Stephen Richards from Atlanta, Georgia. Clifton was originally matched to fight Tofan Pirani of Sweden, but Tofan contacted MKM 7 days before the fight stating he injured his shin during training. In a scramble to find Clifton a new opponent, Stephen Richards stepped up to the plate. Stephen is a very good Boxer and Muay Thai fighter and beat Sean Yarbrough of Las Vegas in a prior match.

Both Clifton and Stephen came in strong and fought well against each other, but Clifton through his famous elbow strike that landed on the side of Stephen’s head causing a big cut on his ear, which ended the fight giving Clifton the win by first round TKO. Clifton Brown is a true Champion and Stephen Richards is a true warrior for taking this fight last minute and we look forward to seeing both fighters again in 2009.

    Set up your low kicks using strategy, cobinnatioms and tactics. This will save you a lot of pain and wasted movements. Don’t just go wailing away, unless your opponent is clueless and doesn’t know how to defend low kicks. Remember the entire body is a target, not just his legs. Learn to fake low and aim high when his arm drops or vice versa. A good boxer will attack every spot when the opportunity arises. If a kick comes your way on the mid to high line, learn to smother it by catching it and punching back or using your gloves to catch the kick. Think of your gloves as a pair of Thai pads. Remember during pad training how you held the Thai pads and responded to your partner’s attacks by catching his techniques. Only difference now is you have gloves on.
