The “Legends Muay Thai Championships” in cooperation with the World Muaythai Council (WMC) were held in San Francisco, California on 4/28/12. The Event was held in conjunction with the 4th International Lao New Year Festival and the fights took place in front of the San Francisco City Hall. This ground breaking event was headlined by Two Fantatstic WMC Title Fights, the main event featuring Ky Hollenbeck vs. Cyrus Washington for the WMC Super Middle Weight Intercontinental Title (76.2 Kilos) and the co-main event featuring Miriam Nakamoto vs. Sandra Bastian for the Womens WMC Light Weight World Title (61.24 Kilos).
In the main event, Hollenbeck wasted absolutely no time showing Muay Thai fans worldwide that his first and only professional loss against Nieky Holzken in November was well behind him. Hollenbeck took under a minute to take out the always gritty Cyrus Washington in devastating fashion. Roughly 50 seconds into the bout Hollenbeck unleashed a spinning back fist that floored Washington immediately and prompted referee Vichai “Rex” Supkitpol to call an end to the bout. Hollenbeck thus earned himself the WMC Intercontinental Title with the quick win and now turns his sights to competing at the Glory World Series Tournament in Sweden on May 26th.
