|Written by IK on 22 August 2012|
Epic Fight Promotions delivered their second show for the year in front of a packed out crowd at the Craigie Leisure Centre in Perth.
The main event of the evening was Australian Champion Kim Olsen taking on the 100 fight veteran Daniel Kerr from New Zealand for the WMC Oceania Title. This fight (pictured) proved to be a good close seesawing battle, like all title fights should be. Kim controlled the early rounds of the fight using long range techniques and managed to bail Daniel into the corner several times where he unloaded big shots.
In round four, Daniel rallied back strong and picked up his work rate throwing lots of kicks and managing to land a spinning back kick. Fifth round saw both fighter’s exchange kicks and punches, trying to ensure they got the title, which went to Kim Olsen via unanimous decision.
Semi main event
The semi main event was two of Perth’s toughest boys, Ruan DuPlessis in his first professional bout against Marco Tentori. This fight was also close, with Marco landing combinations and Ruan landing hard blowing shots throughout the fight. Marco’s unorthodox but effective movement saw Ruan having to corner him and chase him for most of the fight, landing hard kicks and step up knees while Marco tended to land punches and move off.
Caley Reece (pictured right) took on a girl from Bangkok, Thailand with 80 fights under her belt. Caley used her speed throughout the fight, out grappling her with knees and elbows and landing solid leg kicks from round one, which finally broke down the Thai in round five, giving her the win by TKO.
Other fights results on the night were Mitchell Seth winning by KO over Clayton Cook, Tim Morrison winning via points over Brett Crainewhite, Roy Wills winning via points over Jacob Breen, Brady Paull winning via points over Alex Job, Matt Evans winning via points over Jordon Weir, Matt King winning via TKO over Arthur Chamberlain, Kim Townsend winning on points over Thailand, Malaysia winning on points over David Truong, Daniel Pisani winning on points over Cale Henderson and Lloyd Dean winning on points over Cameron Clifton.
