Kickboxing is here to stay! Legacy held it’s third kickboxing event Friday (all this year) and it was another night full of dynamic striking.
The main event featured a pair of European imports as “The Bullet” Valentina Shevchenko (56-1) took on Belgian Anke Van Gestel (31-8-3). There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Shevchenko lately and she showed why that is. “The Bullet” dispatched Van Gestel via unanimous decision and it never really looked like Shevchenko unleashed her entire arsenal. She improves to an amazing 57-1.
LK3 also saw the final two spots for their one-night light heavyweight tournament filled. In the first quarterfinal matchup of the night, the Dutchman Andres Van Engelen made quick work of Danny Mitchell landing a hard shot to his temple that dropped him and stopped the fight less than a minute in. The second fight featured a crazy fight between Manny Mancha and Fernando Almeida. Both fighters came out swinging and there were about 5 total knockdowns before Mancha came out on top in Round 2.
Also on the card, Richard Abraham defeated fellow Lion Fight vet Daniel Kim and UFC-vet Sean Soriano earned an impressive win in his pro kickboxing debut.
Here are the highlights:
