Harry Hardwick (Wicker) vs Reis Sliver (K Star)
This was an important fight for Harry, having retired himself after the first round in his last fight, struggling with confidence.
This fight was well matched, and Reis proved to be a worthy, strong and resilient opponent. This time round, Harry had his head in the game and took control from the first bell using his reach to his advantage, landing teeps to the face and body, well timed body kicks and ultimately what won him the fight his piercing knees in the clinch.
Reis stood strong for 3 rounds fighting back using his leg kick well and landing some good uppercuts in the clinch. Reis took a count at the end of the 3rd round. Harry continued to land strong knees in the 4th and the referee stopped the contest.
It was a fantastic win and result for Harry against a tough opponent, we are looking forward to seeing the new improved Harry again in 2024.
