The BANG!
Was Heard at WARRIORS CUP OF AMERICA

Culver City, California

Veteran Muay Thai and Mixed Martial Arts fighter Duane BANG! Ludwig added another "W" to his professional fight record as he won a unanimous decison against a very game George Humbert of L.A.

The bout was five round Muay Thai defense of his IMTC Muay Thai Title.

From his manager/cornerman Sven "BOOGIE" Bean:

"George was tough, he pushed Duane, but Duane showed his biggest weapon was his heart and earned a unanimous decision after 5 rounds.Duane was holding the edge in 3 of 4 rounds and then in the fifth he swept George 3 times and had him on the verge of k.o. when the bell rang for the end of the fight!!! GREAT FIGHT!!! "

Look for Duane to stay busy with bouts scheduled for November and December.


From the event’s promoter:


IHC MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION PREPARES FOR WAR!

IHC posterHAMMOND, IN — The Ironheart Crown brings an exciting Middleweight Title Bout to Hammond, Indiana! Keith Hackney student, Jay Buck is a rising star who has multiple victories to his name and is now starting a career in Japan’s Shooto organization. Brett Al-Azzawi, now training under Dan Severn, has years of experience and has fought the best world-class athletes that the sport has to offer. Both of these aggressive fighters are known for coming out of the corner swinging…

…and swinging, and swinging, and swinging!

"My record may not be the greatest," Al-Azzawi says, "but look at who I’ve fought! I’ll fight anyone. That’s what makes me different from a lot of other fighters. I don’t pick my fights." At first, this may sound like a lot of hot air, but a quick review of his resume confirms his bold statements. Al-Azzawi has faced the best names in the sport, many of them outweighing him by as much as 25 pounds. Jermaine Andre, Matt Hughes, Joe Doerksen, Egan Inoue, Adrian Serrano, and Dave Strasser are all former opponents that Brett has faced. He has competed in all of the big-name shows, including Extreme Challenge, HooknShoot, Dangerzone, SuperBrawl, and many others. Al-Azzawi won the FFC title in an 8-man, single-elimination tournament, and he recently won the Michigan State Non-Gi middleweight grappling championship.

But who is Jay Buck? For those who don’t follow the sport closely, the name may not ring a bell, but Jay Buck is definitely one of the Midwest’s finest up-and-comers. He has fought several times in the HooknShoot, and while he maintains a 3-2-0 record, Jeff Osborne, HooknShoot promoter and UFC commentator, has great things to say about him. "Every match Buck has had for HnS has been a ‘fight of the night.’ His two HnS losses were medical stoppages. He is a definite crowd pleaser. Buck vs. Al-Azzawi will be a great fight!"

Their backgrounds and fight records aside, what makes this a great match-up is these two fighters’ aggressive styles. "They both come out banging," says Mike Castellano, promoter of the Chicago Challenge. "They both know how to hit, and they both set out to prove it at the sound of the bell."

Eric Moon, the Ironheart Crown’s former promoter, has this to add: "Brett’s one of the only guys out there who will throw high kicks to the head, repeatedly, without any reservation. While this technique is making a comeback in the modern era of well-rounded fighters, Brett has been doing it from day one."

But don’t expect Buck to go down from a couple of head kicks. This is a guy who can take as much as he can dish out. According to Osborne, "He definitely likes to trade blows, and the more you hit Jay Buck, the better he fights!"

Don’t miss this exciting bout for the IHC Middleweight title! This is a fight that will approximate the Matamoros-Higuerros bout in technique, and likely surpass it in its intensity! Tickets are on sale now. A limited number of ringside seats and tables are available. For more information, call 773-793-6555 in the Chicago area or 219-844-8504 in Northwest Indiana. Tickets & information are also available on the website at www.ironheartcrown.com.
