Ten world titles were on the line Friday night at “Champion of Champions 2,” in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The best Muay Thai fighters from around the world were gathered together in one place for one night only to lay it all on the line, and PRO MMA (promma.info) has the official results.
In possibly the highest profile fight of the night, Nathan “Carnage” Corbett knocked out Tyrone “King of the Ring” Spong in the third round. Spong could not get up to make the ten count, however, Corbett thought the referee waived the fight to go on and began to attack Spong with strikes. Because of this, the fight was ruled a “no contest.” It seemed quite unfair to Corbett who had already technically won the fight.
It was announced during the event that Ray Sefo and Nathan Corbett will be the coaches on the Contender Asia Muay Thai Series 2 which will be filmed in Malaysia. It was also announced Duane “Bang” Ludwig will appear on the show.
It does not always happen that main events are the most exciting fights of the night but it is always a pleasure when it works out that way. The main event of “Champion of Champions 2″ had the 6’6” maniac Patrice Quarteron out of France taking on Poland’s Paul Slowinski for the World Muay Thai Championship Heavyweight Title.
In round 1 Quarteron came out of the gates like a wild man, fast and furious. His strikes were a bit wild while Slowinski looked more composed. Quarteron ate a shot that put him down early. He received a standing eight count and was allowed to continue.
Quarteron jumped up and came down with an elbow to the top of Slowinski’s head that cut him and started the blood to trickle down his the back of his shaved head. However, Quarteron got caught with a punch and went down again.
Quarteron continued to fight with everything he had until the end of the round. He survived but clearly Slowinski was tearing him apart.
As round 2 began, Slowinski landed a smashing leg kick that dropped Quarteron to the ground; he then received a standing eight count. The fight continued and Slowinski landed a huge right hand but Quarteron stood strong.
Then boom! Slowinski connected with a huge straight punch directly on the chin of Quarteron. The Frenchman fell flat to his back, out cold. Coincidentally, not only did it end the fight by cutting out Quarteron’s lights, but my online stream went out at the same time — perfect timing! And just like that, Paul Slowinski is the new World Muay Thai Championship Heavyweight Champion.
