THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE JABOUT CHRISTMAS PARTY - A RIPPER NIGHT WAS HAD BY ALL!
~ CONGRATULATIONS TO GLEN PURVIS FOR WINNING FIGHTER OF THE YEAR ~
Our friends from Thailand, Yud Rawai and Harlee Avison both put on an amazing show at Evolution on the Gold Coast on 27 November with Yud beating Tomohawk on points and Harlee getting stopped in the 4th due to a cut from Eli Madigan.
December's S Cup trip turned into an emotional rollercoaster for all concerned, when Greg Foley was unable to enter Japan due to Visa issues. Rhyse Saliba stepped up to the plate and took on Henri Van Opstal but lost on points.
The legendary Buakaw went on to win the S-Cup Tournament.

WHAT AN AMAZING THAILAND TRIP...
The training was great, Kev and Dean's fights were AWESOME, some of us met Yodsankai and Buakaw, we shopped and partied probably a little too hard and we formed lifelong friendships... here are some pics, but check out the "Thailand Trip" page for more.
