On Saturday night George French made his second appearance in the Queensberry Boxing League (QBL) in a stunning venue at the Epsom racecourse.
This time he was matched against a much fairer opponent John Barnard at light middleweight. After just 30 seconds of the first round George found his range and quickly took control of the fight.
Although George won all three rounds we still had to tread carefully, writes George’s coach Carl Denne of Hastings Kickboxing Academy, not dropping our guard for one second, not giving Barnard a seconds breath, as we knew his opponent had a strong right hand.
This was only George’s second outing in the QBL and he’s already starting to make a name for himself with the promoters and building a dedicated group of supporters to follow his progress and who are already looking forward to seeing him again very soon and his next outing at the QBL.
Although George has a strong kickboxing background, over the last year he has wanted to try his hand at boxing and has very quickly adapted to his new and improved hand speed very well.
This, however, doesn’t mean that he has stopped his kickboxing. george trains in both disciplines every week at Hasting Kickboxing Academy (HKA) where we teach kickboxing and boxing and the two sports are very closely linked which George showed off to great success this weekend.
