The Hammer, does it yet again!!!!

 The Hammer!!
-66.8 WAKO PRO British title defence 7x2 minute rounds
Challenger James Cornick (Bulldog Gym) V Holder Ryan “The Hammer” Hamer (Falcon Fight Academy)

Ryan Hamer one of Falcon Fight Academys long time students and top instructors was out to defend his WAKO Pro title last weekend on the 2nd October in Basildon Essex at a show promoted by Tony Willis of 5 Elements Martial Arts.
Ryan has struggled to get fights this year as miraculously opponents who believe they are top draw or ranked No1 had a string of excuses when it come to being challenged by Hamer!

Ryan and management had to have second thoughts and finally decided it was best if he had was at least kept busy. So tough and keen opponents were found. This weeks fight was against the tough James Cornick from the credible Bulldog Gym in Bournemouth.

This fight started off with a typical “pros” start, both fighters cautious and trying to search out the faults and weaknesses of their opponent. Both fighters also showing early on the fantastic power from both hands and feet. Towards the end of the first round both Hamer and Cornick stepped it up, James pushing forward and Ryan moving and striking on the counter with very clever and powerful boxing.

The mid rounds saw James continuing to work, but Ryan just kept pushing forward using his ring craft well which forced James to miss with his attacks on several occasions. James looked strong throughout but couldn’t land that big shot on an ever moving Ryan. Hamer threw some of his big “Bombs” to the body of James and he absorbed them well even as the sound of the punches echoed through the building.

The final round came and Ryan had done enough to take the win and James now needed the KO. Knowing this his corner (John Orchard) had told him to tuck up and go for it and he really pushed for it but Ryan played careful, just as coached for the last and  he hit and moved to stay out of trouble. A very technical fight with James Cornick coming away from the fight he took at a heavier weight with so much valuable experience. This man is certainly one to watch and one you may see as a champion very soon himself!
Winner and still WAKO Pro British champion Ryan Hamer.

Ryan is due out again in a couple of weeks where he will be changing his fight style completely as his next opponent was sat in the crowd at Essex. This will be for the ISKA Pro British title, again Ryan showing willingness as he is World class through and through as we all know!
