July 6th 2013 - York


The Combat Academies Jamie Clarke made his bare shin K1 rules debut this past weekend on Tony Dias's Ring Series 3 promotion in York. Clarke was up against home town favourite Bom Pierre and produced a dominant display to win every round on his way to a unanimous points decision.

The bout took place at the Energise Sports Complex on what was the biggest Ring Series promotion to date. Clarke impressed experts and fans alike as he showed off his sublime skills hitting Pierre with everything but the kitchen sink throughout the three round bout. Pierre showed his metal however, absorbing the heavy fire and applying constant pressure.

Despite Pierres pressure he rarely managed to penetrate Clarkes defenses and ate a steady stream of clean punches, kicks and knees giving Clarke his fourth win from 5 contests and moving him further towards a northern area title shot later this year. 

With Clarkes punch perfect performance also came the news that he has been chosen to once again represent England in this Years Unified World Championships which is taking place in Tuscany, Italy in October.
