Richard Abraham Wins at Legacy Kickboxing 3
If you don’t know him, Richard Abraham is one of the adopted members of The Cellar family. Living and training out of Chicago, IL, Richard doesn’t train full time at The Cellar Gym, but he comes to train/visit when he can. Richard and Coach Chris have trained together several times and quickly formed a bond. Coaches Chris and Justin also traveled with Richard when he was offered a fight in Uganda, Africa last September. When Richard was offered a fight as part of the televised card for Legacy Kickboxing 3, Richard immediately called Chris and asked for his help. His fight against Daniel Kim was nationally televised on AXS Television.
The event took place in Houston, Texas at the Bayou Music Center. Richard was the shorter fighter, but his relentless pressure actually controlled the distance. He basically chased Daniel Kim around the ring landing powerful punches and leg kicks. As the scores were announced, the judges gave all three rounds to Richard as he won by unanimous decision.
Richard is jumping back into camp right away as he has just been announced as the main event of Lion Fight 24. He will be taking on the very tough Ky Hollenbeck at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, CT. This is a very big fight for Richards’s career and you can expect to see him doing 1-2 mini camps at The Cellar Gym as he prepares for this fight.
