More Information
This was one the Belfast fight fans were waiting on as they have heard a lot about teenager Charlie Ward. He is a holder of Irish and 5 nations belts amongst others. Bird also no stranger, a popular fighter at ProKick events. First round saw Ward throw some nice, fast expected hand techniques and Bird placing his low kick less frequently but more effectively. An even round if not shaded slightly by Ward. The second round there was a little more urgency from Bird's technique placing hand foot combinations and countering that bit faster but still looked as if he wasn't out of second gear. Ward at this point was a little more on the back foot unoficially on our card we would say that the second round went to Bird. Ward scoring well again with some fast hand technique countered by Bird's low kick with a switch to high and mid kicks. It was a tit for tat battle with both fighters showing a good array of technique but still looked as if both could go up a gear. Judges couldn't split them and scored the contest a draw. Ringsiders thought that this was a bad call and Bird was placing the better shots but they would say that as most of them were ProKickers. It was a nice technical fight and one that would warrant a re-match. The team would gladly travel to Galway for a 4 or 5 rounder. This is one that will thrill the Galway fight fans.
