Guernsey's first Lock-in Cage Fighting...... it was MASSIVE!

08th July 2012

The Guernsey Full Boar Motorcycle Club should be given great praise for organising such a big event so well - no small feat!
This was the first Lock-in Cage Fighting evening in Guernsey. When the idea was first hatched it was going to be quite a small affair. As time passed the plans grew bigger and the end result was a sell-out with a very satisfied crowd of over 800 at Beau Sejour.
The planning had been immaculate and this paid off with a night that the many visiting fighters and officials rated as one of the best they had ever attended! Truly great praise.

I was ring-side and photographed all the Bouts and am now a convert to this sport:-)
I was left in no doubt (whilst standing at the top of a fifteen foot high ladder hanging my camera over the top of the cage) that this is one of the toughest arenas that you can step into.
Well done to all the fighters. Winner or loser... you all put on a brave and entertaining show.
I have started to add pictures to my Galleries. All Bouts will follow....
