This event was created by Ring of fire promotions due
to the fact that Peter Keljavic and Michael Corleone Both wanted to rematch Tommy "BEE" Bottone from previous fights
under different rules and Tommy was under negotiations to fight other fights. Tommy agreed that they would fight each other
and he would fight David Cummings and if Tommy won he would fight the winner of kelajavic and Corleone to prove
who the best in the divission was.There was to be A 3 round final with no even rounds in any fight and 1 winner of this
tournament to be decided in 2 / 3 rd fights.all low kicks where to be legal as well as knees with no clinched which was all
discussed at the pre fight meeting as well as in the fighter agreemants and written in the fight program for the public
We at Ring of fire productions and the Ulimate Kickboxing challenge regret that the tournament was
not judged on the guidlines that where explained to the athletes and the judges at the pre fight meetting as well as written
in the program for all to see.
We hope to learn from this error in judgement be better preparred for such incidents on future fights.
We regret taking so much time to come to this decision but we feel that it was very important to carefully
review all aspects of this decission.We also felt that this was the best decission which could be made without affecting the
records of the athletes which put on a great show for the sport of kickboxing .
Our goal is to promote the sport for the athletes and the fans in an unbiased manner for all to enjoy
the sport at its best.
