Last weekend saw a North East ‘Fighting Chance’ Fighter pack his bags, along with former two times Northern Area Champion, Paul Charters, and head off to fight at the Rittal Arena in Germany.
Travelling for this heavyweight clash and taking on an unbeaten 11-0 fighter , some said that that this heavyweight was simply sent over toDeutschland ‘to take a beating!
Heavyweight Prospect, Fijian born serving British Solider, Jone Valau TK had other idea’s as did his gateshead based camp at Fighting Chance.
TK boarded the plane with a respectable record of four wins and one loss, and a game up his sleeve the came from from relentless training with Fighting Chance trainer manager Ron Rowe MBE, and boy did it go to plan!
The German Burak Sahin, was about to loose his zero at the hands of ‘The Brown Bomber’ rather than coasting to a 12-0 record as maybe he expected,.
From the off TK showing his pedigree, skill and training as the taller German with the longer reach just couldn’t cut it with TK who stopped Sahin in the third round with a perfectly placed left hook which not only ended the fight but shot TK up the professional rankings.
Now ranked at a very respectful 15th in the Heavyweight British rankings provided by ‘Boxrec’, and 169 out of 1280 in the World which surely will only rise with the 33 year old fighter in fine form, as he looks towards his next bout coming up soon at MTK Scotland.
TK Jone Volau is without doubt one to watch, TK always comes to fight and never to make up the numbers, and doesn’t come to take part, he comes to win!
