June 11 th 2004 Kickboxing returned to NYC with 2 fights which pitted veterans against new stars of the
sport of Kickboxing.
Both Fights where under Full contact ( Above the waiste ) Kickboxing rules and where sanctioned by the WKA www.wkausa.com
.The promoter was Luis Neglia and the USKBA www.uskba.com
co sanctioned the event.
The fights where held at the beutiful new Captale on Bowery street in downtown Manhatten which is in walking
distance from Little Iatly and Chinatown. This is an awsome venue with A great location.
In A 7 rd US WKA Full contact rules ( Above the waiste) kickboxing match was the young Bobby Campbell against
long time veteran and ISKA/USKBA/KICK World Champion Devon " The Energizer " Cormack.
This fight showed that Bobby is ready to play with the big boys and that there last match was no fluke as
this was the second time that Bobby has won A decission against the veteran .
Bobby controlled most of the rounds with A variety of techniqes and seemed to frustrate the experienced Champ
and gaining more confidence as the fight went on. Bobby Campbell won a unanimous decission.
John Kenny which I fought 2 times in the past has decided to make a comeback and showed he still has
what it takes .
John Kenny fought against the less experienced James Onikean in A 5 rd full contact rules fight.
John took control early and was the effective agressor in most of the fight with James landing some
good counters on occasion.
James Onikean showed alot of heart by even fighting John Kenny and he came to fight.I think that the judges
missed the boat on this fight and gave A split decission to Onikean.
It was good to see John Kenny back in the ring and I look foward to see him continue his comeback.
Winner by split decission James Onikean !
