Wall kicks fight career off in style
SUFFOLK Thai boxer Charlotte Wall is celebrating a winning start to her fight career after beating an experienced foe in Devon at the weekend.
Wall, who fights out of the Unit One Combat Sports and Fitness Gym in Bury St Edmunds, faced Lyndsey Jones, of the Saints Gym in Plymouth, at the North vs South III promotion in Honiton on Saturday.
Fighting at 79kg, the 22-year-old easily took the opening round, making superb use of her long range kicking skills to score well.
The second was tighter, with the more experienced Jones finding her way in to land some good punch combinations.
But in the final round the Bury fighter picked up the pace, successfully landing several strong punch and kick combinations to win the round and the judges decision.
