Derek Panzacaptures Vacantiska World Championship Title
ISKA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE
Friday night in Long Island, NY, famed kickboxer and FCF columnist Derek Panza of the USA took on #1 ranked world contender Simon Dore of the UK for the prestigious ISKA World Super Heavyweight Title (don’t let the belt fool ya). Panza, who has been absent from the ring for almost 2 years, is known for his devastating punch combinations that usually leave his opponents KO’d. However, in order to win the belt and defeat the experienced Dore, Panza would have to go the full 12 rounds.
Panza is the owner of Panza Kickboxing (516.656.5775), one the most successful fight gyms on the East Coast. With an undefeated professional boxing record (7-0, 4 KO’s) to go along with his equally impressive kickboxing record (17-1, 12 KO’s) Panza is not only great in the ring, he is also an impressive teacher as well — Congrats from the staff of Full Contact Fighter
From the event’s promoter:
UCC 7: BAD BOYS
OUELLET & PAIN ready to go TOE to TOE!
UCC 7: BAD BOYS
FRIDAY, JANUARY 25th 2002
MONTREAL , QUEBEC
The Universal Combat Challenge will be returning to Montreal with a BANG as the most electrifying UCC warriors will once again light up the RING OF FURYTM.
At UCC 6, top ten ranked pro boxer Stephane Ouellet made his MMA debut by easily punching his opponent into submission. This was an explosive way for the boxer to enter the world of MMA and many feel that he is ready to step up against a greater challenge. By setting a new record for the fastest win in the UCC (7 seconds) he told the fight world that he is indeed ready for a tougher opponent.
UCC 6 also saw the return of UCC "Bad Guy" PAIN Peters in what is being described as a horror show of a bout. PAIN was all intensity as he entered the ring to face Belgium Muay Thai fighter Dirk Waardenburg. There was no chance for Dirk as he was grounded and pounded like never before seen in the UCC’s RING OF FURYTM. After countless punches to the face and head, PAIN ended the bout with an impressive arm bar submission. The crowd roared for more PAIN while future opponents thought of changing weight classes.
It is only fitting that the two most devastating fighters at UCC 6 will meet as the Main Event of UCC 7 and it’s more than fitting that the event be titled after these aggressive BAD BOYS! PAIN has fought some of the best in the MMA game and feels that he will also be able to rumble with a top 10 ranked pro boxer like Stephane Ouellet. With 24 KO’s in the boxing ring, Ouellet undoubtedly has the tools to go to war and be the last man standing. On January 25th the fight world will find out if Stephane Ouellet is ready to battle a ranked UCC warrior or if he will feel the PAIN like so many have in the past.
Also on the UCC 7 card… see the return of the UCC World Lightweight Champion Sean "Pimp Daddy" Pierson, David "The Crow" Loiseau, Jason "The Jedi" St-Louis, Joel Leblanc, Stephan Potvin and much much more!!!
