Looking forward to this little show. I only have one junior fighter on now but thats ok cos I will be the referee for the event.

It looks like I have to ref in front of Tony M but hopefully he will be able to offer me some constructive criticism after the event and I will be a better ref for it.....

..However, I do have a little surprise for the Bad Co. boys that I am sure Mr Myers will be forced to copy when he referees at the main shows in Leeds :)
Posted: 2006-03-28 20:05:36
By any chance are you forcing yourself into a little PINK number mate???lol.
Posted: 2006-03-29 07:40:56
there goes andy upsetting the ref/judges again. Why would you suggest that Dave would have to "force" himself into anything?

Above is most of the results. Some are missing as I was busy in the back and didnt see all the fights.

Well done to all the Bad Company fighters who did themselves and the gym proud. Everyone has trained hard and really excelled with soem very tough matches all round. Fight of the night for me was Robin v Gareth Higgs (Jai Freestyle) - Robin gave away 4.5kg (yes 4.5kg!!!) and took a lot of punishment in round 1 but pulled it back with a knockdown in round 2 and a toe to toe war all the way through.

Dean James was really impressive and took poor Alessio apart. Alessio is a good figher and was very game but Dean is very strong and talented and looked really good.

Thanks to all the fighters, gyms and trainers. Its great to work withsuch friendly professional gyms - everyone turned up on time, all teh fighters were fit and on weight, there was no messing about or complaining and no last minute pull outs.

We got off bang on time with the fight order exactly as published and this is as much down to the professionalism and reliability of the gyms as anything.

Special thanks to Tony Myers and Steve Logan for coming from Birmingham and Guy Ramsay and Crew (some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to meet) and John Craigs SMTC who all travelled so far to support us.
Posted: 2006-04-01 15:53:58
Cheers Richard for putting on your show, boys really enjoyed the day. Well I'm lying they didn't much like the trip back up the road. Have to say I was impressed with Charlotte Webster, very composed of what I saw and landed a few crackin low kicks. It was also nice to meet some of the faces in Thai boxing as well.

Cheers from Daniel and the guys from SMTC

Dont forget the poor sheep that accidently got onto the bus with the Scottish crew. That sheep had the hardest day of all taking all that abuse from the Scottish lads!!

True very True, I'm really amazed they even got on the bus.

Special thanks also to Andy Howson for all his hard work with our fighters over the last few weeks. His dedication and commitment have been unbelievable.
Dave Jackson

Andy is washing my new shirt for me...thats dedication!
Posted: 2006-04-01 16:41:42
Great show. Well done to everyone who took part. I too was impressed by Charlotte but also Kirsty Mack who I thought did exceptionally well on her first fight against a far more experienced opponent. Both girls showed a lot of potential. It was great there were so many female matches, it makes a nice change.
I thought that the Alessio/Dean fight was a stormer too. Dean definetly looks like another one to watch out for.
Well done to Bad Co for another great show.

Posted: 2006-04-02 17:30:06
Cheers Richard. Dave your shirt looks as good as new. lol. Everyone was ace well proud of you all, but Danny Purdy was a star for me, his 1st fight against a lad who had a couple and just returned from a month in Thailand, Danny took a bit of a beating first half of first round but pulled it back and kept pushing on and really gave it his all, very very proud if my 2 kids Danny and George. Charlotte looked class and Gregg is the man. Well done everyone your all belting.

I agree, was a great show, very efficiently ran, well done Rich and the bad co crew. Some excellent fights, I really enjoyed the George (Badco) vs Kyle (Gary McCallister) fight, some great technique and great show of heart from Kyle. Danny Purdy from badco did really well too, it looked like he was going to struggle to get through the fight but he kept going and you could see he had been taught well, excellent kicking off his left - Andy nearly got him to kick with his right :) But he looks to be a good prospect for Badco in the future.

Robin's fight was ace too, giving away weight shows really nerve - I didnt realise it was as much as 4.5kg so he did excellent to keep that hidden - good fight.

Dean James was really good, great fight for the main event. He looked so calm throughout, his fitness was superb and his technique was very 'thai style' - he stalked Alessio around the ring. Very impressed, never seen him fight before, how many fights has he had Tony?

As I've said, excellent show, well done to all fighters.

Posted: 2006-04-03 13:56:42
Sounds like it was a great show, well done to all the fighters especially Kirsty, Michelle, Grant and Paula.
Dave Jackson
Posted: 2006-04-03 17:36:27
I refereed all the fights and I would like to say a big thanx to all the fighters on the day for making my job easier.

When you have 15 or 16 bouts and no real problems it means that all the fighters fought with good spirit and dicipline which is a credit to themselves and all their trainers.

Outstanding fighters of the night for me were Dean James and Somar Kumar. Dean was very strong with beautiful balance and accuracy and Sumar was fast and relentless and reminded me of a younger version of Yogenda Paresh (sp?)

That said it is not meant to take anything away from everyone else as they all put in 110% and fought novice fights at a really high standard.
Alix James
Posted: 2006-04-04 03:18:23
I thought you did really well Dave, you looked really relaxed and composed in there, will we be seeing you more frequently refereeing shows then?

5 fights Dean? Same as me, next to you I look a pile of trash! Didnt realise you came on this site, keep me informed when you're fighting next, would really like to watch again, I can learn alot no doubt.

Somar I agree was impressive, very quick and showed alot of variety, I fought him about a year ago and he has come on alot, I dont think my clumsy style allowed him to show what he had, but on Saturday he showed alot of talent.

he even got in the way of my shot! the pink had gone to his head!
Dave Jackson
Posted: 2006-04-05 15:42:15

At least I didn`t get in the way of any knockout shots this time!

At the last show at this venue one of the fighters was falling to the ropes after a big hit and his opponent started to throw a massive kick at him. I (stupidly) threw myself between them and took the kick across my back!

It cost me a fortune in physio treatment :)

I wont name names ;)
