Badior kicks up a storm

BEAU “Red Dog” Badior continues to impress kickboxing trainer Billy Degoumois following a gritty victory in Brisbane last weekend.

Stepping into the ring at the Corporate Gym in Lutwyche, Badior drew on every ounce of fitness and resolve to topple his Gold Coast rival by way of a split points decision.

The win was Badior’s second after notching is maiden victory last month.

Degoumois was impressed with Badior’s performance in the fierce bout lasting a full three rounds.

“It was a tough fight for Beau but he really stood up,” Degoumois said.

Degoumois credited Badior’s win on his superior conditioning and his sound technique.

“It was a strong fight but Beau had the conditioning because he trains like I train – professionally,” Degoumois said.

“He powered up in the final stages of the fight to take the win.”

During the first round, both kickboxers were evenly matched and spent the initial stages of the bout getting a sense of the other.

Badior, however, began to break away slightly in the second round to slowly earn the upper hand.

Come the third and final round, the emerging kickboxing talent began to find his reserves to push his rival onto the ropes, attacking strongly with his step up knees offensive.

Kickboxing action this weekend moves to Hervey Bay an in action are Elliott Reen and Tyronne Spencer. Both kickboxers are keen to add a win to their record and Degoumois is confident of more Gympie success.

Badior, meanwhile, is back in the gym to continue his gruelling training regime before lining up his next rival.
