If all these matches come off.........Predictions please!
Posted: 2006-09-08 04:00:39
I thought Dicks v Pacquette was off?
Posted: 2006-09-08 04:33:07
I don't think this will be live on Sky
Joe D
Posted: 2006-09-08 04:55:59
Dicks/Paquette is definately off, replaced by Jay Woodham Vs Jordan Watson (at the moment)
Posted: 2006-09-08 05:13:11
Shame about Dicks Paquette as that would have been interesting, I think Watson will be too strong for Woodham although although I hope Jay proves me wrong!
Posted: 2006-09-08 05:28:47
JD are you going ?

also, is this live on sky ? heard it was to be the 1st live show ?
Posted: 2006-09-08 05:41:10
Not sure yet mate, I'm pretty sure it's not going to be live
liam badco
Posted: 2006-09-08 07:28:34
maybe jord wont be too strong as he hasnt fought at 68 before and jay has been fighting at 68-70 all the time i belive. i think he will be too clever people think he is all power but there isnt anything futher from the truth he is a very clever boxer too.

Good luck everyone...hope Dale puts in another masterclass am sure he will.
Sean Toomey
Posted: 2006-09-08 08:43:13
Is the Andre Mcintyre fight still on, I heard that he was now fighting Amir Subasic from Luton. Can anyone clarify this?
Joe D
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:14:09
that would b a shame, i've seen magnum sakai fight a couple of times he's quality, was looking forward 2 that one.
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:29:20
I feel if Kieran Keddle does not gain the World title on this attempt that he should fight some u.k based fighters to prove his number one status that he has(obviously to fight for world titles over and over again.)
This isnt a knock realy before i get jumped on i just feel that Kieran has had a fair crack for now and it would bw good for younger or less experienced fighters to have a crack at fighting him.
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:38:14
who do you think he should fight rdouble?in uk i mean
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:42:54
does anyone know how many fights are on?
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:48:29
I thing it would be good to see Kieran fight Rich Cadden or maby Michael Diks(if a weight could be sorted) Id like to see the Hudders rematch again but these are all top established fighters i would also like to take a look at the top ten ranked fighters in this country and put some of them into the mix.
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:54:05
oh ok mate but if youre getting opportunitites of world title matches and being succesful why not take them hes doing really well i dont think he needs to fight dyet does he?
also do you still fight rdouble?
Posted: 2006-09-08 09:56:23
Whats a dyet?
Why if i still fight.
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:02:04
I think Kiearn should be fighting whoever is best for his career, in recent years he has fought some top internationls home and abroad and he's got these opportunitys by fighting the top uk fighters first, working hard and being a dedicated proffessional. I can pretty much garantee that if Kieran is beaten in this World title shot it won't be by a big margin and this is against a fighter who has recently beaten Noppadet Chensimiw who has twice beaten Yodsanklai. Danthai Singhmanasak is also top 10 ranked at Lumpini, Rajadamnern and no 1 at TV7 so a big test for Kieran but I don't see how a defeat by him should mean stepping back to UK level, when some of the fighters mentioned are fighting at the same level as Kieran and competing then maybe they should get that shot I think the only fight for him in the uk at the moment is with Liam Harrison, a fight I'd love to see.
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:03:34
Do you mean diet? I ment that Diks and Kieran would have to meet in the middle with weight as they fight at slightly different weights.
I totaly agree if people offer you high profile fights against world champions you would be foolish not to take them.
I would just like to see it happen thats all.
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:04:11
Who in the top 10 should be in the mix Rdouble? Who else in there has been fighting at anywhere near the same level?
liam badco
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:09:01
dicks and hudders both fight higher than kieran now that he has moved down weight to 63.
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:09:54
meant to put domestically and deleted it some how
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:20:50
Im not talking about fighters who have fought at the highest level but i like to see less experienced fighters getting the chance to step up
Posted: 2006-09-08 10:22:01
Just realised a good way to put it..................In the same way Kieran had the chance to fight more experienced fighters when he was comming up through the ranks.Get me?
Posted: 2006-09-08 11:21:03
jordans quick and good timing, think thats where the power comes from, certainly not a slugger will be best fight along with dale whites
Posted: 2006-09-08 12:39:05
At Keddle's we want what is best for Kieran and his career, as would any coach. He currently holds 2 world titles at different weights. We will continue to try and push him upwards and onwards.

Personally I think it is flattering that so many people would like to see him fight more on the UK circuit, however, we would still like him to do most of his fighting abroad and especially in Thailand. I would also love to see a rematch with Frankie Hudders, who is desrvedly respected for the world class competitor he is.

Best of luck to all the English fighters on the show on sunday. Apart from the Keddle's Gym fighters, I am really looking forward to the Dale White fight as think he is an excellent technician with a big heart.

Posted: 2006-09-11 10:43:47
good luck to Howard Stamper, i trained with him a few times when i was working down in Norwich, he s a good fighter and a tough guy.
Posted: 2006-09-11 10:52:26
And a nice bloke too, although when I fought him he head butted me!!! (was accidental though!) :)

Posted: 2006-09-11 10:57:02
he sure is, a real hard worker and very determined. its a shame the club doesnt have many fighters as he doesnt have that many people to push him.
Posted: 2006-09-11 17:03:02
good luck Jord lad, soz i cant be there (gutted) but i will be thinking of ya while im sat at the pool getting drunk as shit, lol.
Posted: 2006-09-12 06:26:19
who's going?

who's judging?
Hope there isnt a fall out of judging criteria like the last great show (almost a month ago now)

Good luck Jordan

Good luck to all fighters.

You are right Richard, it is not good for the game at all!

WBC Muaythai Scoring criteria....

15.2 Scoring systems for the contest:

15.2.1 Full ten (10) points are given to the winner of the round and his
opponent may be given 9 – 8 - 7 points in proportion. However, the point is not given
in fraction (10:9 – 8 – 7).

15.2.2 For an even round, both boxers score full ten (10) points (10 : 10).

15.2.3 The winner scores ten (10) points and the lose scores nine (9) points (10 :9).

15.2.4 The clear winner of a round scores ten (10) points and the loser scores
eight (8) points (10 :8)

15.2.5 The winner of a round with his opponent having been counted once
in that round scores ten (10) points and the scores eight (8) points (10:8)

15.2.6 The clear winner of a round with his opponent having been counted
once in that round scores ten (10) points and the loser scores seven (7) points (10:7).

15.2.7 The winner of a round with his opponent having been counted twice
in that round scores ten (10) points an the loser scores seven (7) points (10:7).

15.2.8 The boxer who has been cautioned must not get full ten points in that round.

The referee’s caution can cost one (1) point each.

As taken from

eh so if you knock the guy down its 10-8 but if you ki nock him down and stay on top its 10-7 thats utter bollox
Posted: 2006-09-12 07:23:39
pasting wads of text from websites doent help understanding the scoring much at all, those who know ... know. its as simple as that. no need for over complication its common sense really.
Neil Holden
Posted: 2006-09-12 07:42:14
Why not?

For example, some people maybe scoring using 5 points etc...

There was a sensible suggestion made recently that the official rules and scoring being used at a particular show be made public for the audience and officials, maybe in the event program.

Plus the WBC website is that of the official sanctioning body for the World Title that is top billing.

Posted: 2006-09-12 07:56:51
i mean that alone isnt enough, it would be better if someone made those statements a little clearer, i havent seen anyone using 5 points in MT, saying that it doesnt matter if you use 100 points per round as long as a 10 9 is a 100 to 99 or 100 to 90 and people understand whats what, its not the recording of the results where the confusion is but what is a scoring technique and why is the main issue at the moment as far as i can see.
Posted: 2006-09-12 08:04:54
I dont think its the case or even matters wot numbers you use , points are points i think the confusion is on wot gained the fighters the points in the first place ...... might sound a bit gobble de gook but i know wot i mean ...

Posted: 2006-09-12 08:06:15
yeah thats what i was trying to say aswell russ.
Posted: 2006-09-12 08:20:26
wot time duz this show start its an afternoon show isnt it?
Posted: 2006-09-12 08:28:43
2pm according to this ...

nice thai for main event, should be a good fight.

Some people use a system ...

10 - 10* when a round is close, but one just edges it


09 - 10 when a round has one side in dominance

The WBC system is

09 - 10 when a round is close, but one just edges it.


08 - 10 when a round has one side in dominance

star or no star or dot or whatever they are putting next to the close round as long as it is in your head and youre confident in remembering the previous round was very slightly edged by boxer A or B you should still come out with the correct final decision.

Posted: 2006-09-17 15:58:17
Howard Stamper lost to a guy from Epsom (he did a great Ram Muay from "beautiful boxer" though!!!!), dont know his name. sorry

Great show, I felt Kieran did very well against a quality opponent, and the scoring seemed very one sided in a fight I dont think was as distant.
Dale was awesome, finishing his guy with some very good knees to the head.

Andre McIntyre lost on points to Amir Subasic.

Also though Richard Edmunds had a great fight against Mike Lezama, winning on points.

Well done to Nash and Danny for putting on the show
Posted: 2006-09-17 16:22:21
Well done Nash and Danny for putting on another very good show.
I thought this one ran more smoothly than the last.

I thought Dale's fight was excellent(or rather his performance was excellent). For me this was an even better performance than his win against Paulo on the last WBC show. Dale put on a brilliant performance winning in the end with a knee to the head (I think he dropped his Belarussian opponent three times in all). He used some sharp punches to move imto the clinch. Well done Dale and Dean.

Kieran's opponent DanThai was very, very good (number one channel 7). I thought Kieran should be proud of his performance, he fought bravely and showed good spirit by trying to take the fight to DanThai. At no time did Kieran look to be in trouble. He did catch DanThai with some good punches and one or two elbows but was constantly scored on by DanThai's strong body kicks. DanThai was also strong in the clinch. However, while Kieran did get outscored with knees, actually he held his own reasonably well and didn't get thrown around (I think he only got thrown once). The WBC judges correctly had DanThai winning most of the rounds. I personally gave Kieran a share of round one but had him losing the other four rounds. One judge agreed with me, with one judge gave every round to DanThai and the other gave one round to Kieran and four to DanThai. I was personally very pleased to see MuayThai scoring criteria used by WBC officials on this show and not 'Superleague style' scoring.

DavyMac, Howard lost on points. He did keep attacking with punches and had some success but was scored on by body kicks and knees.

Although I didn't take too much notice of the very early fights, I thought the judging on the undercard I saw was spot on. Well done Jess and co.

agreed jesse. scoring was a bit out to say the least. At least two rounds were even and one of the rounds Kierans. The WBC clearly states in its prefight meeting that they will not be using the 'stadium gamblers' scoring and that every round would be scored (no asterixs) in their own words! and if you think one fighter scored greater than another you would give that round to that fighter not wait till the next to do so. All techniques would score the same no matter what and if the technique used was more effective and more damaging or off balancing then it would score higher. There is no favouritism toward any of the weopons and power would be taken into consideration.

The thai didnt bother ki one bit and apart from the occasional teeb he received the greater punishment in the fight in terms of landed damaging punches and elbows. He was rocked a good few times but did produce the greater work rate and use his leg and knee more giving him the victory but not with the landlside suggested. He was unable to really off balance Kieran in the clinch and was pretty much negated.His scoring came from the kicks and side knees thrown. I am glad to see that the WBC are using this more sensible style of scoring although I feel it will take time for its implementation worldwide and within the WBC. It will give rise to a bigger more widespread audience that will appeal to the masses not just the stadium gamblers and get our sport the coverage it needs.

I was pretty pleased with Kierans fight really considering he fought 4 weeks before against another good thai(not in the same league though) travelling to and from thailand 4 times and is still nursing a horrific training cut. Dan thai is thailand ranked no 8, lumpinee ranked number 9, raja ranked number 8, channel 7 ranked number one and omnoi number 8. He has recently beaten the Lumpini ranked number one and is WMC ranked 7 and WBC RANKED number 1. This has got to be the most decorated thai of current to ever fight in the UK and was in tip top shape! This guy is a current star!!! to be ranked in every stadium, both the two main organisations and Thailand ranked this makes him the hottest property we have had here in terms of current stadium thai fighters. On this basis we are pleased that Kieran can get in there and give the guy all the trouble in the world. A rematch is inevitable for such a good fight and Kieran has prooved he can mix with the stadiums best.

I was very pleased with Saab and Richards title performances taking back two more titles to the gym and hopefully next time Kieran will take that title from Danthai. over and out.

Alan, I agree with you Kieran put up a really good performance (as I said in my earlier post). He deserves credit for taking the fight to Danthai and making a fight of it. You should be proud of your brother; which I am sure you are. Danthai is certainly a highly ranked Thai, better than many and on a level with some of the best Thais we have had fighting in the UK in recent years. I am not sure it was close enough for the WBC to offer a rematch in the near future but if they do then that would be brilliant. As I have stated before on many occasions, I really like Kieran and really want him to do well on the international stage. I hope he learns from this fight and if he gets a rematch uses the knowledge gained to win next time.

Given what I have stated above, I hope you see the following statement for what it is, purely an observation on scoring and not a reflection on Kieran or his performance.

Alan, I agree with all you said about what the WBC state their policies are on scoring (very similar to what the Thai Boxing Board of Sport also state). However, I am interested in your opinion on what criteria you think was applied by the three WBC judges in scoring this fight. I personally think they were all very good MuayThai judges and applied appropriate criteria in keeping with the spirit of MuayThai. However, surely if it had been scored as you suggest it should have beeen, the judge’s scoring would also have been as close as you suggest it was. The three judges were very consistent in their decision (one boxer won by a very large margin). Surely for judges to give the margin of victory they did they would have to have been scoring it by Muay Thai (Thailand) scoring criteria (although perhaps not weighting rounds). Had that fight happened on a temple show in one of Thailand’s provinces or in any of Thailand’s stadiums, that fight would have been scored exactly the same way; a big win to Danthai. This doesn’t mean Kieran got battered or badly hurt, it just means the fighting style Danthai used was appropriate for the scoring criteria applied; predominately teeping Kieran off balance, kicking the body, kneeing the body and trying to maintain physical and mental composure when Kieran punched and elbowed.

I said in my earlier post that I was pleased that the fight was scored using MuayThai criteria. I didn’t say this because it meant that Kieran lost the fight, but rather because I believe that type of scoring ensures the skill development of international fighters and because I know it is far superior in obtaining consistent decisions than the alternatives available. I am not just basing this consistency argument on anecdotal evidence (of which there is plenty) but I do have research evidence to support the consistency of MuayThai scoring (as used in Thailand) when compared to the type of scoring that is generally used in the UK. This research has not been published yet and when it is I will present it on ax. However, I can provide a brief overview of the results. The results suggest across 135 judgement decisions that there was a 75% level of agreement (mean difference between scores 2.38) between UK judges. Compared to a 91% level of agreement (mean difference between scores 0.31) between judges using Thai stadium style scoring. The only differences in judgement decisions by judges using MuayThai scoring (Thailand style) was in drawn bouts (then only one pint difference). I would suggest that this level of consistency in a subjectively judged sport is unique. I would also suggest this means we should be very careful before we discard a system that offers this level of agreement; particularly for a system that is far inferior in terms of the reliability of decisions and also the variety of skills required to win.

PS. I though your other lads fighting on the show fought well; particularly the shorter fighter who stopped the tall lad with punches (I didn't have a programme so am not sure of his name).

Out of interest is Kieran going to fight Tijarti again? That was a v close one.
