Enfusion Live Ladies Worldtitle
Enfusion Live report for the 3rd November 2013.
Thr Hague, Holland.
By Enfusion MC Peter Lowe
Ilona Wijmans of Holland retained her 57kg Ladies Enfusion World title against Belgium’s Nathalie Visschers.
Wijmans struggled to find her range in the 1st round as Visschers moved cutely around the ring firing off straight punches and kicks to keep the Dutch champ at bay. Ominously for the Belgium challenger Ilona was able to close the distance better in the 2nd round and landed some meaty looking low kicks before forcing Visschers’ to trade punches at the end of the round. Wijmans picked up where she had left off in the third and despite taking a spinning back fist was able to land with much more frequency. Then with about 30 seconds left in the round a left hook to the body seemed to badly hurt the visitor. Sensing this Wijmans unleashed a volley of blows, mainly hooks to the body, in an attempt to bring an early end to the contest. Nathalie recovered well though and still had enough spring in her step to land some decent single shots at the beginning of the fourth session, but then a two punch combo followed by a low kick forced Visschers to the canvas to receive an 8 count. With the finish now in sight Ilona set about overwhelming her opponent with another two fisted body attack. Visschers sunk to the canvas again. Up at the count of eight she bravely tried to continue but a final vicious assault from Wijmans dropped Nathalie for the last time forcing the referee to wave the fight over at 2.35 of the fourth round.
Hafid El Boustati (Morocco) earned a unanimous point’s decision win over Holland’s Robbie Hagemon in a close, competitive contest.
The contrasting styles blended well and there was little to separate both men in the 1st round. El Boustati showed some nice head movement in the second round slipping the Hagemon jab and countering with some naughty looking uppercuts as he looked to get close and unload knees in the clinch. In the 2nd round Robbie picked up a cut over the left eye and responded with some sharp kicks to keep Hafid off balance and out of range. Hagemon took an accidental elbow in the 3rd and after a short rest tore into El Boustati, landing a head kick that initiated some entertaining exchanges. At this point the judges were unable to split the pair and demanded a fourth round to settle the argument. El Boustati seemed to have more in the tank and probably won the round by making his strength tell in the clinches. An excellent sweep in the dying seconds put an exclamation mark on a dominant round for Hafid as he picked up a unanimous points decision win.
Surinam’s Darryl Sigtman won a tight majority points win over China’s Duoli Chen.
Sigtman has obviously picked up some tricks from legendary Dutch fighter Remmy Bonjasky, who was on hand in the corner, and won the 1st round with his classier work. Chen though sets a fast pace and with his high pressure style was able to out work the Dutch man in the second round as he feinted his way onto the inside before throwing kicks punches and knees at his adversary. The 3rd round was a nip and tuck affair with both fighters working hard for the win but it was Sigtmans work that caught the judge’s eyes and saw his hand raised after the final bell.
Fred Sikking (Holland) picked up a unanimous points decision win over unbeaten Romanian Razvan Benche.
The compact, thickset Benche kept Sikking on the back foot as he patiently stalked his man while looking for openings. In contrast the Dutch man circled the ring smartly, picking off the Romanian with sharp counters when he stepped into range and in doing so took the opening session. Benche was able to get closer in the 2nd round and had some success with his heavy looking punch combinations. He even seemed to shake Sikking up with a hard left hand to the head towards the end of the round. Benche threw no kicks or knees whatsoever, although he did manage to check a few low kicks. The pure boxing tactics continued in round three as the stocky Romanian continued to rumble forward. The judges demanded a fourth deciding and at its conclusion all agreed that Sikking’s better leg work and counter punches had won him the contest.
Zakaria Sebar (Morocco) picked up a unanimous decision points win over compatriot Redouan Koubini.
Koubini started positively, making good use of his height and reach advantages, and probably took the first session with his work rate and ring craft. In round two Sebar finally found his way inside and struck with a counter left from the southpaw stance that put Koubini on the deck. Redouan showed good recovery powers and was up quickly and back into the fray. Round three was an extremely tough round to score with both men having success but it was Sebar’s solid work that earned him the judge’s approval and the points win.
Regian Earsel (Surinam) won a unanimous points decision win over the brave but outgunned Juan Bol (Spain)
Earsel looked dominant in the 1st round. Hurting the Spaniard with knees and forcing him to receive a standing count, Earsel then set about dismantling his foe with left hooks to the body, knees, low kicks and fast punch combinations. Bol rebounded well in round two and should take some comfort from the heart he showed to stay with Earsel. Normal service resumed in the third as the bruised and bloodied Bol found himself on the wrong end of some eye catching combinations that included some jumping knees and flashy uppercuts. Regian now improves to 24 fights 22 wins and 2 losses.
