The popularity of combat sport in the Maltese Islands is undeniable. Week after week, boxing and kickboxing athletes are in action on the international platform, admittedly & true more abroad than in Malta itself – Our Maltese Brave-hearts battle on and have not let the lack of local, regular competition deter them from their moment of glory in the ring. Over the past few years results have been consistent, in the various combat sport disciplines; in the amateur, semi pro or professional ranks.
The 27th and 28th of January saw a number of Maltese boxers & kickboxers competing both in Malta and in Belfast Ireland.
On Friday, in Malta, the local popular boxer Billy “The Hitman” Corito, took on and beat Ian Toby at the Sky Club in Paceville, in the second round by TKO, in a semi pro fight. This was the eight straight win for the undefeated local hero.
On Saturday, in Belfast Ireland, the Ying Yang Kickboxing club of Fgura, Malta, up against Ireland’s Prokick Club. This time around our locals did not fare so well, and none of the Maltese on the fight card got positive results.
