Big wins in Muay Thai and Boxing for Absolute!

It was a busy weekend for the Absolute Fight Team and our fighters brought home some great results!

First up we had Erhan ‘The Victorious’ Gungor​ and Albert ‘Timorese Assassin’ Xavier​ fighting Muay Thai at Powerplay 30​. Massive fights for both guys against very tough, experienced opponents but Erhan and Albert put on the performances we know they are capable of, winning unanimous decisions in both fights!

Unfortunately Jaskirat Singh’s opponent pulled out due to a fever but Antonia Konstantopoulou did the boxing team proud, dropping her opponent twice in the opening round en route to a second round TKO!

We were also proud to host the first MA1​ Challenge in the CBD with some of Australia’s best grapplers fighting for $1000. An awesome day and great to see so many people get behind a new competition! Some great photos of the action over at Shebeast BJJ​.
