Stephanie Stafford vs Erica Taylor – Welterweight – Low Kick rules kickboxing
This is hard. There is so much happening right now I’m barely able to describe it. The ref actually separates them from continuous ineffectual striking. No clinch or hug, they just aren’t doing anything on the inside and need to get separated. It just happened again. The ladies are both landing strikes of every kind, both hands and low kicks with both legs as per the rules. Stafford is favoring a 1-2 punch combo and following up with leg kicks while Taylor throws a lot of body kicks. Looks like a pretty even round.
Second round, Stafford seems to be weathering the blows better and landing some good leg kicks as before. Stafford also appears to have the superior cardio definitely the more resilient fighter. Taylor lands a few quick jabs but is still losing the fight.
Last round, Stafford goes back to her formula of straight lefts and rights with leg kicks. She is an unstoppable barrage of strikes and Taylor not only loses in the exchanges but can’t keep up with the pace.
This fight was ruled a draw.
