WAKO Pro Title for Leif Taggart and the Black Falcon Crew!

Saturday 10th November saw Leif Taggart endure a 5 x 3 minute rounds of K1 action in his WAKO Pro English title fight on the IMPACT 1V show at Middlesbrough promoted by Alan Chapman.
Fighting Andrew Lofthouse from the Siam Camp in Oldham he was pushed all the way!

Going into round three the boyz were 1 a piece and Taggart was told by his corner..."You're fit enough, now up the pace!"

He systematically threw high scoring combinations and started to tot the score up. It has to be said Lofthouse threw several big landing haymakers but Taggarts conditioning and desire to win stood him firm and hard til the final bell.

The respect shown by the two fighters and both camps at the end of the fight was fantastic and a pleasure to see for the witnessing crowd.

A well deserved win and a title that Leif will never forget attaining!!
