30-09-23 - 3 out of 3 for USKA Trio on Battle of Knights Fight Gala!

We had three fighters competing this evening at the prestigious Battle of Knights event at the H Suite in Birmingham.

The Aero-Kick hosted monster event had over 30 bouts of Kickboxing, Boxing and K-1 featuring fighters from all over the country.

First up for USKA we had 12 year old Zain Amer in an International Kickboxing Contest over 3 rounds against Hassen Beltoufa from FKR Kickboxing Gym in France.
Zain's reputation is well known but Beltoufa himself came with a great record and good credentials having held titles in both Kickboxing, K-1 and Boxing disciplines in his home country.
Zain once again proved that he is up there as one of the best fighters in the World at his age and weight with a dominating performance showcasing skills way beyond his years to win a Unanimous Points Decision.

Next up we had another 3 Round International Kickboxing Contest between USKA's 14 year old Muzaker Rehman against Jean Martel again from the FKR Kickboxing gym in France.
On paper this was a very well matched contest with both fighters being touted as being good prospects and fighters to watch out for.
In a back and forth battle over three rounds with neither fighter taking a backward step Muzaker was named the victor by Unanimous Points Decision for the cleaner and more consistent work over the three round distance.

Finally for USKA we had Ateeq Al Rehman challenge for the WKU Super Lightweight K-1 Title against Tom Hill from the MMA Den in Battersea, London.
Ateeq would be going in to this one the Underdog with Tom being the more experienced of the two and with a very strong reputation.
In a great well matched contest it was all even and anyone's title to win going into the last round.
Ateeq listened well to his corner and finished the stronger of the two in the fifth to win a close but well deserved Split Points Decision to lift the belt.

So all in all a good nights work for team USKA and some valuable lessons learned and experience gained.
Well done to all three of our lads and their corner teams for another three great wins, we are so proud of you all.

A big thank you to show promoters Rudy Robinson and Richard Todd for the opportunity to have our fighters feature on the show and to all the spectators who purchased a ticket to come and support our lads.
