Island Inferno II

Sat. Apr. 7, 2007 Super Middleweight Professional World Title Match

Charlettetown, Canada, promoter: Barry Ogg

 

 

“King” Ken Hewski from Long Island, NY and Muzammal Nawaz of Toronto, Canada squared off in a 12 round Full Contact Rules ISKA Super Middleweight Professional World Title Match.

 

1,000 fans braved the snow and ice of the season’s worst blizzard to fill the Grand Ballroom of the Delta Hotel in Charlettetown, Canada for the show named Island Inferno II.  The promoter, Barry Ogg did a great job setting the tone of the venue, giving the night a real “Vegas” style feel.

 

Both fighters entered the ring very focused, fully aware of what they had to do to claim the ISKA World Title Belt. After the introductions were made and the center-ring stare down was over, Hewski and Nawaz were ready for battle.

 

Round 1 started slow as both fighters tried to feel each other out. Neither fighter landed anything effective, but Hewski kept busier using side kicks and a jabbing front leg roundkick to keep Nawaz away from him.

 

In round 2 both fighters picked up the pace with Nawaz throwing his trademark axe kick, but Hewski was able to land counter with his own sidekick and a couple left crosses to earn the round.

 

Nawaz started round 3 trying to get inside, but Hewski used an array of sidekicks and some spin kicks to control the distance and keep Nawaz off balance. When Nawaz did get inside, Hewski would tie him up effectively.

  

In round 4 Nawaz’s tried his best, to reverse the fight’s momentum, which to that point was clearly in Hewski’s favor.  By the end of the round Nawaz looked spent as the proud Canadian warrior returned to his corner.   

 

Before the bell sounded for round 5 Nawaz’s corner regrettably called a halt to the match indicating that their fighter could not continue due to a knee injury.

 

“King” Ken Hewski, ahead on all three scorecards was awarded the stoppage and TKO victory.  After more than 40 “ring wars,” the 30 year old veteran from Port Jefferson, NY proudly accepted his first World Title Belt. “I had the best training camp ever, and am very proud of this accomplishment.”  The ISKA is equally proud of “King” Ken’s efforts and hope to see him defend his title either in front of his many home-town fans in New York or perhaps in England where the full contact style of kickboxing is most popular.

 

Nawaz later said that he had injured the knee several weeks earlier, but thought it would be all right for the fight.

 

All in all the night saw some exciting undercard fights with knockdowns and knockouts and capped off with “King” Ken Hewski living up to his nickname. Hopefully Nawaz’s knee will be all right and the stage can be set for Hewski/Nawaz II, I’m sure the fans would not want to miss that one.

The Delta Prince Edward hotel set the stage for a Las Vegas-style kickboxing event Saturday night in Charlottetown.

Complete with a catwalk and light show, fighters made their way to the ring as music blared across the speakers and cheers came from the crowd of nearly 500 at the Island Inferno 2.

The headline fight in the 12-bout kickboxing card was between Canadian fighter Muzammal Nawaz from Burlington, Ont., and American Ken (King) Hewski from New York.

Hewski won the bout by a technical knockout in the fourth round.

The 31-year-old Hewski has been fighting for 10 years. He said his three months of intense training in preparation for the fight paid off.

“It felt great tonight, never better,” he said following the ISKA super middleweight title fight. “It was my biggest goal. I knew I was coming up against a four-time world champion, so I trained harder than I knew he was going to train.”

Hewski’s coach, Tommy Bottone, said his athlete was a hard worker and was ready for the bout.

“We’ve been preparing for this fight for 10 years. The opponent didn’t really matter to us.”

Hewski had a karate background and wasn’t sure he would make it

this far in kickboxing, Bottone said.

“I trained him for boxing and

kicking. He did everything right,’’ the coach said. “He couldn’t have done anything better.”

Three Islanders also fought Saturday night, all winning by technical knockouts.

Danny Stewart of Team P.E.I. started the night off, winning the first bout one minute into the first round against Keith Rudolph, of Dartmouth, N.S.

“That’s not what I expected,” the 21-year-old said, adding it was his first fight ever.

“A lot of training and a lot of people helped me out. Everyone from P.E.I. that’s in Barry Ogg’s kickboxing class helped me out.”

He said he worked hard on his boxing skills, which helped him win the fight.

Mike Trainor, 33, was the second Islander to take the ring, triumphing over his opponent, Mike Foley of Newfoundland.

Trainor said he also worked a lot on his boxing skills.

“That’s mainly what I was trying to go with, my boxing,” he said. “I felt really good, really good. It’s great to be with your hometown crowd.”

In his eight years of fighting, this was only his eighth time in the ring.

Trainor said there is a lot of honour and respect between fighters.

“It’s a team effort getting ready for a fight, but it’s a personal one-on-one challenge with your opponent when you’re in the ring. So it’s the best of both worlds, I guess you could say.”

The third and final Islander to fight was 16-year-old Charlie McKinnon.

Being involved with the sport only seven months, McKinnon won his fourth fight Saturday against Mitchell Greenburg from Ontario.

Backstage, McKinnon dropped to the floor, happy and exhausted from his fight, saying he felt “awesome.”

“I felt really confident. I just felt like I had the best of this fighter all fight.”

He said he wasn’t too nervous prior to getting in the ring, but that it was “definitely the hardest thing” he’d ever done.

“It’s just the most amazing feeling you can imagine. Like, no one has an idea until you’re in the ring.”

This was the second time the Inferno kickboxing event took place in Charlottetown.
