Coach Ron wins with a TKO stoppage in Round 1

Yamasaki Academy Woodbridge Head Muay Thai Coach Ron King III won his fight against Mikey Sadlowski from Chok Dee Athletics via a TKO in Round 1.  An attempted head kick from Ron unfortunately caught his opponent in the eye and he was unable to continue.  Despite the fact that in the ring we are fighting, we never want to see our opponent get hurt like that and we hope he is okay and with him a speedy recovery.  Coach Ron will be fighting in the Warriors Cup 4 man tournament in NYC July 13th, 2019.  Event details can be found at:
