Mixed Martial Arts fighter David Ryan did both himself and his coach, Dave Cunliffe proud at the weekend during his debut battle, winning by a KO in the first round!
David took up the sport as a hobby and the chance came for him to fight which he was more than happy to have a shot at. He worked extremely hard to achieve his personal goals, lose weight, get fit, and learn a new sport.
This all paid off for him on the night when he landed a fantastic combo to end the fight in the first 2 minutes of the bout held at the Willington Last Man Standing event.
Dave Cunliffe said: “David has done very well for himself and the team. We set targets and he achieved them, I’m over the moon and it’s the beginning of a real team. Watch this space!
