Main fight was for the WKF lowkick World Championship in Crusierweight – 88,2 Kg / 194 lbsThe very experienced and older Chris “the Sniper”  JOHNSON original from New Zealand, challenged the much younger Matt STAPLEFORD. 

After a tough battle in the ring, Stapleford was able to assert himself unexpectedly and was ahead of points in all rounds. A good body hit by Australian Matt in the third round ended the good fight of two big champions.
