Charlie wins second Australian title

Charlie Thompson has claimed his second Australian kick boxing title with a first round win by knockout.

Thompson, of Chakola, took on Phil Tyquin from Orange on December 7 to contest the Australian Title in the super welter weight division.

At the Burns Club in Canberra, Thompson defeated Tyquin in the first round with a knockout.

Thompson previously took out the Australian title against Tyqin in Orange winning by knockout in the third round in June.

Thomspon said he was nervous the second time around knowing his opponent had undertaken a lot more training in the lead up to the fight and had just came back from overseas fighting for Australia kickboxing.
