It was a win double for the TS Kickboxing Club at the Excel in London on Saturday.

Nick Gill and Sukhy Shoria were fighting against opposition from Germany at the Pain and Glory event at the Seni 08 martial arts exhibition.

Shoria won his contest by way of Tko in the third round.

He dropped his opponent early in the third with a well-timed left hook, and the German fighter made the count only to be floored again by a powerful roundhouse kick to the head.

From round one, both fighters exchanged some powerful shots, Gill throwing some nice kick punch combinations with the German fighter countering with his over hand right and the occasional body shot.

But from round four, the class of Gill began to show as some nice footwork had the German falling through the ropes more than once and a well-timed front kick to the face had his head snapping backwards throughout rounds four and five.

Gill caught his opponent with hard uppercuts in round five but Bachir was still there at the end of the fight.

The decision was a unanimous win for Gill.

Coach Trevor Spencer said: "Both Sukhy and Nick did themselves and the club proud as we knew they would.

"It was a great experience for them to fight on the big stage at a Pain and Glory event against international opponents.

"Now we can look forward to some big fights for them this year."
