What a great year for Golden Glory's Nieky HOLZKEN ! Two wins in the Muaythai Premier League over Ky HOLLENBECK and Marco PIQUE, the WFCA K1 Rules World Title, the Ultimate Glory finals (lost against Artur KYSHENKO). And last Saturday, this victory over Cyrus WASHINGTON in Suriname. "The Natural" wins by TKO in the second round, with a jumping knee which cut the American.
Nieky HOLZKEN: "The first round began and I went forward straight away, because I knew he is a kicker. I started with boxing combos and a few kicks: a big pressure !
In the last seconds of the round I gave a series of punches and knocked Cyrus down with a liver punch. The referee gave him a standing 8 count. He was saved by the bell...
When the second round began, I put the pressure again and felt I was the boss here. I threw punching combos. With a jumping knee, I cut his face very badly...TKO, the referee stopped the bout !"
Cyrus WASHINGTON (on facebook): "Fought his rules and I didn't keep sticking and moving, no elbows is a different game. Nieky is in the top 3 K-1 fighters in the world . I am disappointed to have the fight stopped for cut (there was not a KO) but I learn what is important from the loss. I WILL WIN WBC BELT IN FEBRUARY. DON'T FORGET I DID JUST WIN WMF TITLE. To be continued."
The co-main event pitted Marco PIQUE against Michael "Chase" CORLEY. PIQUE won on points in front of his home crowd.
Michael CORLEY: "Round 1 was back and forth action. Round 2 he caught me with his #1 weapon his overhand right and landed some power kicks into my arms that started to take there toll. Round 3 He caught me again with a strong overhand right. It was a good Muay Thai fight and I am glad I got be a part in the first Muay Thai fight in Suriname."
