Sawatdee Khrup!
For a mostly 'C' class show the production & atmosphere plus the quality of the fights was excellent.
It is always a pleasure to referee on Steve's shows and I must say that it's equally a pleasure to referee such professional, humble & dedicated fighters. A big well done to everybody. A mention has to go to all the K Star team behind the scenes for such a professional job on what was a marathon day with the junior bouts followed by the professional fights at least 60 fights all told and all over 12 hours plus! Also to Paul Crossley who refereed all the junior bouts (38-40?) highly recommend him as a referee.

It was a long day but a pleasure to watch everyone from the gym perform the way they did.

I was proud of everyone but the performance of the night for me was young Dillon Elsemore. Dillon fought Macauley Coyle from TMA. it was a close fought bout going one way then the other. Dillon came strong in third with some powerful hands followd by body kicks. Macauley edged the fourth with well timed kicks as Dillon punched. The fifth saw the fit strong Dillon press forwards with solid punches then out work Macauley in the clinch. It was an awesome fight.
Both I believe will have a great future. Dillon took the decision.

Adrian Maguire was awesome against Ali from Shin kick. Ali was stopped by the referee in the fifth round as he'd just taken too much from the first round.

Ali tried to apply pressure on ade from the word go, but this is all I've done to ade in sparring for months now so he's more than capable of coping with it as last night proved.

A liitle too much show boating Ade mate but that's you I guess.

Another great show last night, thanks to all the clubs, instructors and fighters who helped make it such a great success.
As Shaun has said above a big shout has to go out to paul Crossley, who refereed the CCC during the day, a solid 6 hours!and then was one of the judges on my show on the evening.
I always try to have 2 referees and 4 judges, so the officials can have a break and keep alert without having to have a break in the show, so hopefully, he had a bit of a break! But he was still there at the end as was the very hardworking 'pitbulls' who did all the running on both shows!!
Jesse helped out by organising Kyle to MC and Rich to judge, as well as bringing along his fighters.
I am very lucky to have a very good, hardworking team behind me, who do a great job of running the shows, so thsnks VJ, Wayne, Ravi, Simon and Tom for running the evening show. Damien and Nathan also had a very long day doing the corners and looking after the fighters all day and night. As always helping with the fighters was Alan and Gaz. Everyone did a brilliant job.

Some really good fights last night, I didnt get to see them all, but I was very pleased with all the K-Star fighters, they all had good clinch and were scoring well with good muay thai.

I will get the Free DVD's done and sent out to all the gyms ASAP.

Time to start working on the next one on sat 26th Nov.

Thank you very much Kru Shaun Bowland, I am humbled by your kind words & recommendation. Its very nice to have encouragement from someone I hold in such high regard & it was good to see you again.

Thank you to Steve for inviting me to judge on the show.
It was a long day and yes I think I sat out 2 fights ;-) but its always made a little easier when shows run so smoothly (even if the fights are so closely matched!).

I've always heard good things about this show but it was my first time at the Ballroom & its a great venue, which last night held a great show with some real battles in the ring.

This was a great fight, I got to give MASSIVE respect to Ali who took some big clean knees but
refused to stop giving some back. Great stoppage by Refreee Kru Shaun Bowland as I pretty sure Ali would of never stopped.

Sorry I dont have the times of the stoppages as I dont have my result sheet.
I have checked but please feel free to correct any mistakes in the above post.

Great show , just want to congradulate Mr Boland on great refereeing , Jack from Shinkick had a tough break , really techincal style. THe lad from K star that fought our chris was good too , strong lowkick and good hands , want to give Chris his due too , i love that guy lol a house couldnt stop him from fighting ,and he loved it , great show steve
Posted: 2011-09-26 05:33:44
Thanks for having us on steve,

Was a great show and was very pleased with my guys.

Cathal dominated his guy with good strong knees, but thanks so much to Jeet as he took the fight on 2 days notice, and is only 16yrs.

Jack just didnt perform as he can, but credit to Chris, just over powered him. Thanks Jono for your kind words to him, it meant a lot :)

I am so proud of Ali. He has only had 3 fights and we knew that this was a massive step up for him. We know Adrian well, having had two of my other fighters fight him, so we had a few game plans. Have to say that Adrian fought fantasticaly, and his knees were sick. Ali is a tough kid and just would not give up. I nearly pulled him out after the 4th round, but he wanted to go the distance.
Well done to adrian, such a great bloke, and his entrance was brilliant ;)

The show was well run and had a good atmosphere.

Steve Logan
Posted: 2011-09-26 08:07:43
Paul,Thanks for putting up the results, I am sure Sandy will also be happy. You worked hard all day.
Thanks Jonno and Jesse.
Ali has the heart of a Lion. Funny you say that you almost never let him out for the 5th, I looked over and said to Adrian that I dont think they are going to let him out for the next round. I was suprised when he came out, soooooo strong.
Ali really set the pace from round 1 and is a really talented and tough fighter, I am sure they will meet again when he has had some mor e experience.
Adrian Maguire has had a bit of a hit or miss record and never really consistant in his performances, but his last 2 fights have been reaaly good and I am hoping that he has got his head together and fight like that all the time.
Thanks to everyone who supported the show.

Sawatdee Khrup!
I heard Ali pleading with Jesse for just one more round so he still had some heart & fight left. My job was to keep a close eye on him to ensure he didn't get too hurt. The last kick to the head was enough and I echo the sentiment that Ali would have gone out on his shield if I hadnt intervened.

you did a great job shaun, your concern for ali's safety was shown in your professional approach to the stoppage.

great show steve.

WHO was that MC?? he was good.... ;)lol
Posted: 2011-09-26 13:17:01
Great show as always Steve, feel lucky to train at K-Star and get to see this excellent show at such an enjoyable venue.

It can only me made though with all of the other gyms bringing their fighters on the night, and we were lucky enough to have some great performances, with lads showing fantastic heart and spirit.

As always of late, the youngsters are showing some awsome technique and are often the best fights to watch.

The futures bright.......

P.S Great reffing also

Dear Steve...

While I have no ability to prevent you from doing so, I would ask that you please stop using the Muay Thai ebook as an incentive for people to purchase seats at your event. I was one of the contributing authors of that ebook, and none of us were paid for our work. The ebook is available in numerous location for free download, and it doesn't seem fair that you use it in a way to gain potential profit.

Thank you.

-Kru Brooks "Khun Kao Charuad" Miller

Your introduction video on the webpage you setup for the ebook download is very flattering! I really appreciate that since a number of the contributions in the training section of the book were mine.

Kru Brooks, with great respect sir, it is not my intention to become involved in any business you and Steve have. However, as this is a public forum I do wish to put my opinion forward for your edification.
I was wondering why you have chosen such a public forum to message Steve? He is easily reached by several more private forms such as; E-Mail, Facebook messenger, telephone or even good old pen and paper.
I am sure I must be wrong in reading into this but it almost seems that you are trying to discredit Steve and promote yourself on a topic that is regarding his show.
You don't need to reply to this on here just drop me a line i
My concern is genuine as I regard Steve as a good friend and am writing this in defence for him

Posted: 2011-09-28 05:16:46
Good show on saturday, an interesting mix of fighters and some very entertaining bouts. I thought James Young got a raw deal getting a draw, but it was a fun tear up! My only gripe was the lack of respect shown by a couple of the K-Star fighters to their opponents, particularly Adrian Maguire, there's no need for it and it reflects badly on the whole camp. Otherwise it was a well conducted night, I'll be at the next one for certain!
Posted: 2011-09-28 06:22:57
Nice call Shaun Boland:)
Kru Shaun

Sawatdee Khrup!
Thanks Carl.
Spiky, I don't think it is intentional lack of respect, most times fighters get caught up with the adrenaline and the heat of the moment. While I don't condone bad attitude or lack of respect, those that I have 'had a word with' when refereeing are more than often apologetic after the fight.
At the end of a Muay Thai fight it is very rare that I don't see mutual respect from both fighters no matter the result.

I get more indiscipline from the spectators and sometimes the cornermen! :-)

Kru Shaun...

No worries. I have to admit that I posted here in "heat of the moment" just as you and 'spikey' were discussing in regards to the event. I did attempt to contact Steve privately as well.

One of my reasons for posting on this subject publically is that I wish to discourage others from following this same route. I honestly do not believe that Steve meant to take advantage of anyone. It seems obvious to me that he was impressed with the ebook and simply wanted to share.

However, I wanted to make sure that he understands that none of the contributing authors received any form of payment for our contributions, and it really struck a raw nerve with me to receive an email with a link to the ebook offered as an incentive to make a purchase.

Its all game man ship in the ring, and I know that Adrian is not a malicious guy, and in fact was very repsectful indeed to Ali. He was very concerened for him after the fight as Ali went to hospital (just to get checked out, a bit of concussion, but otherwise OK)
Adrian then contacted me to ask how Ali was, and I believe they have spoken to each other.

As Shaun said, fighters get caught up in the heat of the moment, but that is fighting. Thats why I love this sport. Can be great friends before, batter each other, and then be friends again straight afterwards. :)

Kru Brooks
Firstly, thank you for your Email (my reply has been forwarded) and the fact that you are humble enough to explain that this was in 'the heat of the moment' (coincidently another discussion going on regarding heat of the moment in this topic).
I respect you for this. As my email reply explained, no personal slight was intended towards you and I was just making an observation and constructive criticism. I totally understand your frustration regarding your Ebook. As you said Steve is not profiting from this (unlike some on EBay) and has done this with the very best of intentions.

I wish you every success sir

Yours in Muay Thai

Kru Shaun

Jesse, don't let our Scottish friends read your comments about our fighters battering each other, you know what they are like, they batter Mars Bars and smarties etc, you will give them ideas!! ;-)
