Last Sunday, two Assassin Muay Thai boxers travelled to Corby for the Fight Kings show.

First on was Shaydon Burt (10) who is quickly making a name for himself in the junior ranks. He fought an opponent from the Storm Gym, in Luton in what was a well-matched bout.

Both lads showed great Muay Thai skills with Shaydon using his slight strength advantage to outscore his opponent, but both will have learned much for the contest.

The next Assassin on was Peter Whitehead (17) who took on a lad from Bedford.

Both fighters came out fast, but Peter showed how much he has learned from sparring with fellow assassins Thai Barlow, Tyree Stevens and George Griffiths by scoring well with kicks and showing great potential.

After three hard-fought rounds, Peter was awarded the bout on points.
