Thread: Are there any Straw weights out there?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default Are there any Straw weights out there?

    I`ve been working with flyweights for about 3 years now on Shock n Awe and lately some of the fighters I have been matching have told me they would actually be able to fight at U115lbs.
    So far it`s only a couple which is why I`ve not matched anyone at that weight.
    I`m just wondering if there are any flyweights competing that would fight at the weight?
    My email is brian@gym01.com if you think you can fight at that weight let me know as I may be able to help you out.
    Shock n Awe is the home of the midget scraps FACT, we don`t even match fight`s any heavier than Middleweight on the show but if there were a decent number of possible competitors I`d look at getting some fights hooked up.
    If you love fighting you can never really lose!!!!!

    mark handley started a thread about fighting straw weight a while back, I think he got matched up, I'm not sure if the fight went ahead or not

    Handley failed to make weight for that fight, his opponent Ian Possilthwaite was on course to make weight I believe, you might want to ask Rob McCrum (posts on here as Staffie) about Ian's availability
    Scotlands No. 1 Timekeeper also available as a BJJ/No Gi referee

    Yeah, Iain can make that weight, Handley never will, missed it by miles. The wee fucker.

    Drop me a message Bri and we could get something hooked up.

    I remember having a conversation with someone at a show not too long ago and we were chatting about midgets and the straw weight division came up and he said he only knew of 3 guys in the UK but I can't for the life think of the names he said.

    Glasgow to Southampton, Flybe, pretty cheap.

    Always a solution to a problem.

    Couple of the Newcastle midgets are looking to make the drop.

    Sham Haque and Ian Malone I think. Still pretty far away though.
