by: Tommy "BEE" Bottone
Mina Sarihasan 17 years old from Middle Island, NY USA fought a 3rd amateur full contact rules kickboxing bout against Vicky
Ransom 27 years old of England.
This was an entertaining bout, as Vicky started out with a strong attack in round 1 with Mina keeping her composure and
landing some good combinations.
Round 2 was when Mina found that her front Kick was a very effective weapon for this fight and began landing it at will,
gaining control with it using it to set up some great hand and leg combinations.
Round 3 Mina was in control and showcased some strong boxing and kicking combinations being the aggressor for the entire
round. Mina also landed a very strong roundhouse kick to the neck showing how tough Vicky was as she continued fighting strong
to the final bell.
This was the first time Mina Sarihasan has fought outside of the U.S. and was thrilled to fight in England. She hopes
to return to Europe to fight again.

an Amateur World champion at 124 lbs in the near future.

experience, only 2 years in training
Tommy said that in all of his years of training and fighting he has never seen anyone learn as quickly as Mina has and
is really happy to see her success in fighting at only 17 years old.
