Luke Greenshields (Black Widow) V Steve Johns (Chao Phraya)
Steve said: “So as much as I’d like to say that after a hard fought bout yesterday I came away with a win, unfortunately this wasn’t to be the case. I was caught with heavy leg kicks in the first round taking it out of action and was unable to continue. I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that wished me luck and especially those that traveled to support me.
With a hostile local crowd it meant the world to me. After seven weeks of hard training I’d also like to thank Kru Leigh Edlin, Kru Brian Pawsey, Fight Specifix and Max Skidmore for all their help in my training. Most importantly the never wavering support of my amazing wife Lisa… Much love to all”.
