** REVIEW " The decission of the final fight of the 4 man tournament is under review as there was A conflict
on the rules agreed upon by the Promoter,fighters ,judges,and referee for this match !
All factors along with the agreed upon rules as well as a video tape will be sent to A review borad for A
winner to be determined .
These rules where agreed upon by all fighters before they signed to fight as well as in the fighter,referee,judges,rules
The rules where also printed in the program of the fight and publicly discussed in the fighter meeting as
well as on Video tape for the Internet in demand PPV broadcast.
The 3 main factors which are under review :
1) There was to be no even rounds called as well as no draws in the tournament so there would be a clear
winner of the tournament in 3rds of all tournament fights .
2) All Low kicks where to be allowed " Including catch kicks " with the exception of intentional
direct knees joint attacks.
3) A fighter is knocked down by A Low kick while standing on 2 feet it is to be called a
knockdown by the referee.
***Review Decission ***:
A review board has decided clearly according to the UKC rules agreed upon by the athletes ,the promoter,and
the judges in the prefight meeting that the fight should have been scored differntly than was the decission of the judges
The review board decission: If the fight was judged according to the rules agreed on before the
UKC tournament the 3 judge pannel would have scored the match uninaimous 30-26 for Bottone
After careful review of the clear missunderstanding of the rules and guidlines of which to judge the
Ultimate kickboxing challenge from the judges and the organization in charge of the judges for this event the UKC borad and
sponsors have agreed to respect the decission of the judges and keep the fight A draw on the fighters records and the

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 metting as well as written

We regret taking so much time to come to this decission but we feel that it was very important to carefully
review all aspects of this decission.

the sport at its best.

This was A Don King Promotion
Kickboxing Champion has great boxing fight at Madison square garden !
Tarek Rached which is A USKBA low kick Champion Formely Of lebanon now training in Middle Ialsd,Ny with TOMMY
"BEE" BOTTONE fought his 3 rd pro Boxing match on april 17 th 2004 at madison square garden on the Undercard of the Golata
vs Bird heavyweight title fight.
Tarek Rached fought A very game undefeated fighter from Peurto Rico Juan Limberti. These two fighters came
as A warm up fight for the big heavyweight title fights that followed but no one told them that. They put on what many said
was the fight of the night with 4 knockdowns in 4 rds .They really got the crowd on there feet for the first fight of the
Tarek Rached is a strong stand up right handed fighter with alot of Kickboxing experience and no amateur boxing
backround and Limberti is A left handed fighter with very good boxing skill.
In the first 2 rds it was obvious that rached was trying to close the gap on Limberti
which was using his left hand stance to keep Rached at bay landing some good body shots both rds where close with
the judges giving the edge to Limberti. Rached was cut in rd 2 over his eye from A head butt and the blood was stopped in
his corner before the next round so the fight went on without incident.
In rd 3 the fight really got going with tarek getting into his range and taking control with strong left hooks
and staright right hands . This is when it really got interesteing with tarek droping limberti with A left hook and after
getting up Rached was overconfident and got caught with A straight left and got dropped himslef .The round
finished with tarek taking control again.It was obvious that rached was remembering his training on how to fight A southpaw
now.The judges gave the edge to mr Limberti in this round.
As I was working the corner for tarek rached I told him in the final round that he absolutley needed to
win this round and win it big as I believed that whoever won this round would win the fight.
He took my advice and took it well as he came out on fire taking control as the bell rang being the clear
agressor and droping Limberti 2 times before the end of the round and when the final bell rang Limberti looked
as he was very happy to see the end of this great battle. The crowd BOOED loudly at the decission of a draw.It was as great
fight and A great experience for tarek rached. We hope to have A rematch inthe future as I am sure it will be another great
The judges gave the final rd to rached by A 10-7 margain making the fight A draw.
I would like to thank the NYSACB for giving us the scorecards on request after the match.Mr Ron Stevens "the
commissioner"contacted me personnaly to make sure that I recieved the score cards as requested for this article. I would
also like to thank the Ny matchmaker for helping us to get this fight Jim Borzel and also thank Don king for giving this opportunity
to tarek rached.
This was a great chance for a Kickboxer to showcase his boxing ability on A major Don King promotion at MSG
the worlds most famous arena.

Carlos Lamberti (4-0-1, 3 KOs) and Tarek Rached (1-1-1) fought to a very exciting draw that produced four knockdowns
in a middleweight contest. Lamberti started the fight strong as he effectively countered Racheds attack with right hooks to
the body and head. In the second, Lamberti got caught with a strong left hook to the head. Lamberti came back to finish the
round strong with good right hooks. Rached dropped Lamberti with a hard left-right combination in the beginning of the third.
Lamberti easily beat the count and came back to drop Rached with a straight left in the closing seconds of the round. Rached
came back strong and dropped Lamberti twice with straight rights in the final round that had the crowd cheering. All judges
scored the fight exactly the same, 97-97 for a draw. -- David Rodriguez

LANE SCORES ANOTHER KO TO CAPTURE WKA TITLE ON "SUPERFIGHTS"
It took 28 seconds into Round 3 for TIM "Bring the Pain" LANE to win the
WKA USA Championship Title. For his opponent, DIEGO MANNINO, it must have seemed longer. Mannino, a kickboxing champion from Argentina, took
this fight after it was learned that Lane's original opponent, Edelmiro Montero, was delayed entry into the United States
as a result of new stricter entry procedures. It was not know if Montero would make the fight in time, so Mannino (already in the United States) was brought in to fight Lane. Lane, the current USKBA Full Contact Kickboxing
Super Lightweight World Champion, continued his dominance in our sport with an impressive TKO over Mannino. In other Pro
WKA bouts; Antoine McCrae defeated Mike Ryan by Referee Stoppage, Bobby Campbell defeated Devon Cormack
by majority decision and Chris Algieri won a unanimous decision over Guerino Pavone. The WKA sanctioned the pro bouts and the complete results can be found at their website at www.wkausa.com.
