BRIDGWATER professional fighter Milan Tomes from the KJ2 martial arts team narrowly lost out to Cornish fighter Lee Caers.
Milan started with an immediate high kick going straight into clinching and then onto a throw to the ground. Milan landed many strikes and kicks whilst defending from his opponents strikes dominating the round. The second round started with a flurry of kicks and punches before Milan moved in to grab his opponent's legs to throw him to the mat.

The referee stopped the fight awarding the win to Lee. Both fighters showed a great deal of professionalism in applying martial arts techniques.
