Johnny Smith(ProKick NI) Vs Bryan Merrigan (Black Dragon Galway) - This bout really got the Hilton Hotel audience rocking right from the off. Two different stylists, Smith with a more conventional kickboxing style and a more Thai oriented 'Tong-Po' style kickboxer in the shape of Bryan Merrigan. Some nice action in the first round with nice exchanges of kicks and knee strikes with Smith forcing a standing count with a fast harp punch combination. In the second round it was much of the same, both fighters going for it and showing a good variety of technique. At the end of the second round, right on the bell it looked like Smith was caught with a punch that took him to the canvas (we are currently in the process of reviewing the video evidence) however there was no count given as the referee Gary Langofrd thought that is was after the bell. Lucky Smith? In the third round Merrigan started fast but Smith matched him for power and speed and again a great variety of technique from both fighters. At the end of the match the judges gave it towards the Belfast fighter. Merrigan showed true sportsmanship by lifting Johnny's hand to acknowledge he was a worthy winner. Check the fight card out -
