Great Competitive Kickboxing Fights in Savage, MN

Lajly Yang kickboxing

The Cellar Gym traveled south to Savage, MN on Saturday to compete in another exciting night of kickboxing action. Three fighters from The Cellar participated in the event: Lajly Yang, Di Lin, and Caleb Merth. Lajly started the show off as he challenged a very tough Serhiy Suckov from Canada. The two 125lb fighters battled back and forth for 3 rounds, but Lajly’s aggressive pressure and strong boxing got him the judges decision win!

Next up was Di Lin as he challenged Kristian Hewitt who was also from Canada. Di started the bout off brilliantly, throwing great combinations and backing Kristian to the ropes. In the second round Di played a bit to patient and made the bout even on the scorecards. The third round went back-and-forth with several changes in momentum, but in the end Kristian got the win the split decision.

As a featured bout of the evening, Caleb Merth challenged Terrance Marquardt for the vacant 145lb featherweight title. Marquardt was a Tae Kwon Do fighter using flashy kicks and explosive techniques but Caleb was able to defend nearly all of Marquardt’s attacks and land punishing punches in the process. We thought Caleb won the bout 4 rounds to 1, but the judges had a split decision going to Terrance. It was a close bout and Caleb will learn a lot from his first loss, but we saw some horrible judging throughout the night and this fight was no exception.
