Look at this video, this is for a British Title, although the judging done by WAKO GB in my opinion seems like it should have been more of a school yard scrap than British Title. I mean a bat working off of sonar alone could have called this one correctly. An inquiry was made by WAKO (by themselves) after this bout, they have come back and said that their decision was correct. In my opinion this makes a mockery of the kickboxing profession, a profession that is trying to be built up by many people’s blood and sweat. I mean what is the point of competing if the looser gets handed the trophy. Unless WAKO has decided that blocking punches and kicks with your head and body is a new defensive tactic I don’t see how this call was made. I mean look at Mike Nudds trainer (Blue Corner) just prior to the decision it says it all (point, point).
WAKO GB stands for, World Association of Kickboxing Organisations in Great Britan. In my opinion WAKO GB should stand for, We Accept Kickbacks Or Gracious Bribes because it was either corruption or incompetence that made this call. Decide for yourselves and if you have any opinions please voice them to WAKO and let them know what a joke they are making of a great sport.
