Jordan Waring Pro European K1 Rules Champion

Waring has not only added the WFKKO Pro K1 rules Welterweight title to his own trophy cabinet but he has completed the Falcon success story and goal for 2012.
Janson-Piers, head man at FFA DINNINGTON Sheffield ( said "After the last three years of massive success stories the team and I really set our sights high, I wanted all my top K1 fighters to take the next level title up and also worked so hard to achieve several high level World Golds at the 2012 World Games. Kerry-Louise added another World title to her K1 achievements, Taggart a Pro English and this latest one by the man of the moment!

Warings fight was hosted by Dan Healys Tri Style Martial Arts of Saffron Walden at the Forum in Hatfield and was held under the sanctioning of the WFKKO one of the countries leading organisations who are part of the World Governing Body for kickboxing.

It was to be a 5 x 3 minute Pro K1 Rules European title fight against 3 times French champion and Thailand stadium winner Mattheiu Floch of France, certainly Warings toughest opponent ever to date. Waring still only 20 years old is always looking to better himself and next year will be no exception. He and coach have already got eyes on young blood who are trying to climb the welterweight ranks at the moment and when that's sorted he is prepared to be tested against some of the household names before either defending or moving up to the next level.

The fight was all it was hyped up to be and it went all 5 rounds. The team were well aware of the Frenchmans power and staying power and at no time in the fight underestimated him. Taking the first two rounds comfortably on every judges card Waring was put to test in the third when Floch registered two 10-10 scores out of the 3, however, with a change to the fight strategy Waring went on to secure the last two with a full house of 50 points on every judges card giving him a unanimous and clear points win over a prime athlete in Mattheiu Floch. The French team were notably very professional at all times and gracefully accepted the defeat as sportsmen to be proud of!

The action hasn't finished yet for the BFKKO and WFKKO as they still have to host some of the UK's top fights at the Octagon, Sheffield and Beachcomber Club Cleethorpes both in December.
The Octagon will witness, probably the fight of the year in Christian Di Paolo v Joe Magovan in a 5 round pro prestige K1 Rules fight, tickets still available do not miss out!!!
