Friday Night Fights Muay Thai “All-Stars” took place this past Friday (July 20th) in New York. The night’s main event featured the return of “The Polish Punisher” Chris Kwiatkowski after taking a few months off due to a shoulder injury. Daniel Rodriguez was looking to spoil Kwiatkowski’s return to the ring, but “The Polish Punisher” made sure that wouldn’t happen. From the beginning it was clear that Kwiatkowski was the more technical fighter, he low kicks steadily started to pile up and in the second round they became too much to handle for Rodriguez. Kwiatkowski scored the (T)KO victory after some vicious leg kicks in the second round.
In the night’s co-main event Liam Tarrant and Turan Hasanov came to put on an entertaining bout for the fans. Hasanov came out gunning, but Tarrant remained calm and collected scoring with some strong kicks. In the second round Tarrant dropped with a head kick, but Hasanov recovered. In the third round it was evident that Hasanov’s leg was taken some serious damage due to Tarrant’s leg kicks, but he kept pushing. In the fourth round it a head kick again dropped Hasanov, who once again was able to get back to his feet. Despite Hasanov’s heart, Tarrant was clearly in control and after landing a few more kicks to Hasanov’s legs, Tarrant switched it up and went high to score a fight ending head kick. With the (T)KO win Tarrant now 2-0 as a pro.
Rounding out the pro portion of the card, Mohammed Lemjerdine and Mike Erosa went to battle for five rounds. The fight started of fairly close, but as each round passed Lemjerdine began to pull away. In the end Lemjerdine earned a unanimous decision victory over Erosa.
