Well Andy Young (8-7) is truly back to winning ways. The flyweight travelled to Colchester, England to face a dangerous and previously undefeated fighter in Luis Gonzalez (4-1) for the BCMMA flyweight title.
Like all of Young’s fights the action was non-stop. The Next Gen NI fight was diverse with his strikes even landing a jumping knee. Gonzalez brought it as well landing some well timed strikes. But in the end Young would win the fight with a barrage of punches on the ground which forced the referee to stop it and award him his very first TKO finish as a professional.
This win just comes less than a month after he defeated UK veteran Spencer Hewitt for the UCMMA flyweight title.
He is now 7-3 in his past ten fights but could easily be 8-2 after a dubious decision loss against James McErlean from UXC 2, a result he rectified by beating McErlean two fights later. His other two losses were a fight of the year candidate loss against Paul Marin in Cage Warriors and then a TKO loss to Sergey Morozov in M-1.
A well deserved break is now on the cards for Young and possibly one more fight before the end of the year.
