The Westin Hotel, Richmond, VA

This weekend’s Combat Sports Challenge (CSC 37), which is Virginia longest running fight show, was host for the first GLORY Rules Amateur Kickboxing bouts. The card featured 15 bouts and three highly contested GLORY Rules Amateur Title Bouts. In the main event, the 2012 WKA North American Tournament Champion, Axel Mendez, IL (22-2) was matched up against Adam Edgerton, KY (15-9), the 2013 WKA North American Tournament Champion for the newly established WKA GLORY Rules Amateur US Light Middleweight (-71kgs/-156.2lbs) Title. These two had fought in the finals of this year’s WKA NA Tournament which had Edgerton winning by decision. Both fighters brought their “A” game and the early rounds seemed too close to call. However, in the later rounds of this 5 round bout, Edgerton seems to shift from single attacks to combos. Edgerton continued to mix punches and kicks to take the title by unanimous decision.

In the co-main event, Shawn Steen, VA (9-1) faced off against Stan Macebo, CA (10-5) for the GLORY Rules Amateur US Lightweight (-60kgs/-132lbs) Title. Both fighters came out throws constant combos at one another. This fight was a total offensive battle and became a test of attrition for both. Macebo’s heavy body kicks seemed to aid him in the later rounds to fatigue Steen and lead to a unanimous decision by Mancebo.

The third title match was a real crowd pleaser, the ladies set up to vie for the GLORY Rules Eastern Regional Amateur (-57kgs/-125.4lbs) Title. Hard hitting Aracely Valenzuela,NC (4-0) squared off against the very crafty Christy Tyquiengco, VA (7-3). Aracley came out with the anticipated power shots, but Tyquiengco managed to score a knockdown with a jump spin back kick and then a finish with a head kick KO to take the title.
