View Full Version : Big Thanks to Freddy @ Clash of Warriors
06-09-2009, 07:53 AM
Just got home from Clash of Warriors and wanted to extend a big thanks to Freddy for not only inviting myself, Tony Mac and the head of our USA division Tommy Gleeson (and his family) to the show.
But also for matching-up Jimmy Wallhead and Martin Stapleton (who the Warrior Promotions team manage)
I know the last few days have been really tough for Freddy with pull outs and other problems but he carried on and had some good fights on show and he is also a fantastic and generous host.
Hopefully we will get some more guys there in the future

I would also like to thank Freddy, for trying to match my MW on a days notice, and very nearly did. not only that, he very kindly let myself and Ashleigh Grimshaw up to the show, and it was good of him to do that.
The show was a good night out, the crowd were very livelee, and some very good fights.
Good to see Ian, Tony, Tommy, Wad, David J, Paul Daley..

Just to add harmony to the chorus - impressed, it was a great show and very professionally run.
Well done Freddy and good having a brief chat with you even though you were insanely busy and on the verge of the show kicking off.
Great night of action and a very well put together show, I had a great night and it was good to catch up with people. Thanks to the Clash of Warriors team for the invite and I look forward to the next show

Congrats guys. I've only seen these events on DVD, but they seem well put together. Seems the show has grown considerably and is filling the gap other Midlands-based promotions have left

Nice one Freddy, really enjoyed the show. It had everything; good fights, top British fighters, bizarre fights, crazy KO's, about 5 UFC fighters in attendance........was a great event to be at! Cheers again Freddy and congratulations as i know you had a lot to contend with in the 3 days leading up to the show.
Great to see everyone there and catch up with guys like James, the guys from WP, Matt. See you all again soon.

I took a couple of friends along who had never been to any kind of fight night before (boxing or MMA) they both loved it and commented that it was not as brutal as they had expected!
There were some excellent fights and I think that those few that did require the judges were well called.
The standard of the refereeing was good too.
Half the cast of TUF USA v UK were present - Dean A, Nick O, Stapes & Andre W (3 of whom are pretty local) so it was nice to see them supporting a smaller event, now they have hit the big time.
The match ups were all pretty good (with the possible exception of Jimmy Wallhead's late replacement opponent).
I have to give a special mention to a friend of mine Pep Padovano who, in amongst organising things back stage, did a great job of interviewing the fighters after each fight.
I'll be back next time (so will my 2 mates)
The atmosphere during some of the fights was brilliant - especially the Cohoon bout.
