A spokesperson said, “Jay Astwood led Team Fight City Bermuda to their first win of the day defeating Dalton Brandell of Savage Muay Thai by unanimous decision. Jay performed well dropping Dalton with a knee to the body in the first round and a vicious left elbow in the second round.

“Jay cruised to victory in the third round and advanced to the Class B Middleweight finals against a significantly more experienced Marc Mrozinski of Fight Prime.

“In the finals Jay performed well but was eventually out scored on points in a very competitive match where the Bermudian was unlucky to close out his day with a title belt.

“Nathan Amaral, competing in his first Muay Thai event, continued his undefeated career inside the ring with a dominate victory over fighter Saw Dah from the famed Rofusport gym.

“Nathan gave his opponent multiple standing eight counts with hard knees to the body with the Rofusport fighter not answering his third eight count in the closing seconds of the second round. Nathan advanced to the finals against a very game Joshua Brooks of Dragon Leg Gym.

“The match was a very close affair with the judges seeing the match tied heading into the third and final round. Nathan dug deep landing a flurry of low kicks to his opponents leg and constantly backing him into the corners of the ring.

“Nathan landed flurries of shots in the final minute to eventually be awarded the victory and crowned as the Revgear Lightweight C Class Champion.
