RESULTS FROM
Friday Night, March 9th, 2018 / Super Show 1
Crown Reef Conference Center
2nd Annual IKF Spring Classic

Congratulations to all the fighters who fought their hearts out on Friday, March 9th at the Crown Reef Conference Center! All of them showed tremendous heart and great sportsmanship! We at AK Promotions and the IKF are thankful for their attendance and showmanship!
The Main Event of the evening would be for the IKF Junior Amateur United States Featherweight Title at 127lbs! Three of the top juniors in the United States including Puerto, Arizona and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA, trained hard and did not let anyone down as all of them gave a great effort to show why our sport of Muay Thai / Kickboxing has a bright future!
Names of the aforementioned three contenders were pulled on Thursday Night at the Early weigh in… between 7:PM- 8:PM for the Junior Featherweight Title to determine who would fight first.
Hines and Rossi fought in the preliminary fight with Hines of Arizona winning a tough Unanimous Decision over Rossi! Hines would later return to fight the undefeated Angel A Carranza who would win a Unanimous Decision but Hines gave a valiant attempt to take the tile back to Arizona.
Carranza has the poise of a true champion! He has everything it takes to go to the top of his division! This young man was impressive in every way and we look forward to anyone in the United States at the 127lbs weight class with a proven record challenging him for his IKF United States Title in October (5th and 6th) of this year back in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the 6th Annual IKF Fall Muay Thai / Kickboxing Classic!
Here are the results for the rest of the action that took place on Friday March 9th!

RESULTS FROM
Saturday Night, March 10th / Super Show 2
Crown Reef Conference Center
2nd Annual IKF Spring Classic

Saturday Night, March 10th, 2018 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, IKF Top Contender Luis Morales of West Palm Beach, Florida did his talking in the ring by defeating the rather bodacious, talented but respectful Brandon Waters for the Certified IKF United Welterweight Championship in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the Crown Reef Conference Center.

The fight was the main event of 80+ amateur fights over the weekend for the 2nd Annual IKF Spring Eastern Classic hosted by AK Promotions and the International Kickboxing Federation ( IKF ). AK Promotions and the IKF were thankful for all of the fighters and fans that made it to the event and gave great representation for our sport of Muay Thai / Kickboxing!

After Morales gave Waters a standing eight count earlier in the fight, he would go on to ultimately win by Unanimous Decision. Luis thanked everyone for assisting him in reaching one of his goals including his trainer Asa Ten Pow but what stood out was him thanking his wife for putting up with the crap and emotional roller coaster one goes through while in training. Thanking his wife makes it clear that Morales is not only the man to beat in the Welterweight division but that he also has a big heart and great respect for this special woman in his life!

We’re looking forward to having him defend his title in October for the IKF Fall Classic and perhaps by the Spring Classic in 2019, step him up to a World title fight, if he is able to hold on to his current IKF United States Title or if he’s still available as we know other promoters are watching. 🙂 We will see but trust us…we promote our champions hard and try to give them what they deserve…enough said there…:)

We will start looking for contenders for in the coming weeks for USA Title Defense but you better be ready as Luis does his talking in the ring and he is VERY LOUD! J
Congrats again Champ…Forward March!
Here are the results for the rest of the action that took place on Friday March 9th!
