TaKeOn Productions' Third Installment!

New York, NY

On Saturday February 13th, New York City was witness to another installment of The New York ShowDown series brought to you by TaKe On Promotions-an action-packed night of professional & amateur Muay Thai. Fans were treated to 10 high-paced bouts from varying skill levels. TaKe On's mission is to give every fighter their chance at glory, and this show was testimony to that mission. The card started off with novice fighters showcasing their skills, followed by B class fighters duking it out for 5 rounds, and ending with pros battling it out for the WKA Men's Lightweight North American Title.

Fighters represented local and international gyms, including 5 Points Academy, The Wat, Sitan Gym NY, Sitan Gym PA, CT Combat, M-1 Thai Boxing (Canada), Ottawa Academy of Martial arts/Renzo Gracie (Canada), Mohawk Muay Thai (USA) and Lotus Gym (Holland).
Every fight had the spectators on the edge of their seats and delivered what fight fans came to see...Muay Thai at its best! Matchmaker and VP of TaKe On Aziz Nabih did a spectacular job at matching all of the combatants. Promoters Eddie Cuello & Mike Gasparski have their jobs cut out for them: topping this mega fight card for the next installment of the New York ShowDown series (April 17th) will not be easy, but with the amount of rising talent these days the task shouldn't be too difficult.

Of note was Eddie Martinez's (5 Points) head kick KO of Chris Minor (Mohawk Muay Thai, California) at 1:49 of round 2. Fighter of the Night honors went to Sitan Philly's Rami "The Arabian Nightmare" Ibrahim as he TKO'd Dave van Duyn (Lotus Gym, Holland) at 1:47 of round 5 for the Pro WKA 132 lb. belt. Rami has TKO'd his last 3 opponents and looks to keep that streak going for 2010.
