Renzo Gracie Tilburg successfully participated in the boxing gala 'Go Hard or Go Home' at Team Smits in Tilburg last Saturday. For most it was their first time in a boxing ring, so we had a good afternoon with three wins and two losses.
Gijs Huiskamp vs Jeremy vd Broek (Zadero training)
For Gijs it was his first boxing match and he managed to win it with clear force majeure on TKO with beautiful boxing.
Niels van der Zee
Niels van der Zee vs Kostja Constatinus (MW team)
Niels had been in bed all week with the flu but decided to participate for the experience. However, in the first round, the referee intervened because he clearly could not defend himself well. So hopefully next time a better start.
Pawel Szkiladz vs Narek Harantunyan (Team Smits)
Pawel had never had a fight, but with his wrestling and MMA background he does have competition experience. With his 'Polish Power' he quickly made short work of his opponent, ending in a TKO in the first round.
Giel Rutten vs Hidde Fokker (Team Smits)
A very dynamic fight between Giel and tall Hidde where Giel had to move a lot to get within Hidde's range. The match was ultimately decided in favor of Giel by the judges.
Justin de Mey
Justin de Mey vs Luca Sanger (Team Smits)
Again, quite a difference in length. Quite a job for the debuting Justin to come close. In the first part Luca had the upper hand but as the match progressed Justin's pressure increased. Luca had to go to great lengths to keep him away. Unfortunately, that was not enough for Justin to win the match, much to his disappointment.
With a group of which Giel was actually the only one with previous boxing experience, our boxing team has delivered a fantastic performance for which a lot of admiration!
