Ultimate Bare Knuckle Boxing

Update: Footage from UBKB Manchester all done

Just wading through the video from the UBKB show we attended at the weekend. The show was excellent and well worth the distance we drove to get there. Keep an eye out here for the videos of the show. At last the video and stuff from Manchester are done.

Well I pretty much survived a weekend of extreme alcohol and managed to grab my self a photo with The Anti Nowhere League, two in fact, and one with Stranglers Keyboard player Dave Greenfield. I was somewhat pleased it has to be said.

Anyway back to this weekend. It is time for Ultimate Bare Knuckle Boxing or UBKB for their third show this time in Manchester. It is fucking miles away from here and will prob take a good five hours of travelling each way. Am I looking forward I hear you cry and I reply yes indeed I am. If you are at the show give me a wave if not then there is probably no point waving.

Music Weekend

Not really very combat sport kind of subject but Friday to Monday My Brother, My friend and I are heading to Butlins in Skegness for a music weekend. Looking especially forward to seeing The Anti Nowhere League and Stiff Little Fingers. Can't wait and the week after it is off to Manchester For UBKB. Happy Days.

Ultimate BKB

Only three weeks to go until Ultimate BKB hold their third show. This time we head off to Manchester on 14th October to the Bowlers Exhibition Centre Old Trafford for an evening of great Bare Knuckle Boxing action by promoters Shaun and Amanda Smith. Head over to Ultimate BKB 3 by

Andrew Juby

My old mate Andy Juby is now the boxing scribe for The Ringside Report. All the best with it mate I look forward to reading your contributions. Another Stu Armstrong in the making the Combat Sport World has just got smaller.

There are a few nice shows coming up in the next few month including some local to the Medway Towns. Kicking things off this weekend on Sunday at the Casino Rooms in Rochester we have Cage Fighting action from Leo Alderman's Show. It is a good afternoon out so if you fancy tickets you can find out any info you need as usual on the Show Dates page.
This has nothing to do with Combat Sport but I have to mention it. I was recently charged by Facebook for some adverts I had not asked to be placed. As the payments had been taken via Paypal I contacted them and explained the situation. Within a couple of hours they replied that as I had Facebook's details on record as I had purchased from them before it was not considered unauthorised. NO Paypal just because I have bought something off of someone before this does not mean they can help themselves you fucking morons. On the other hand the very nice lady from Facebook took time to look into the situation and refunded me. Thank you lady from Facebook, fucking useless piece of shit Paypal what a fucking joke. Beware anyone who uses Paypal all the customer guarantees are not worth a toss this is not the first time I have had this with you but it will be the last. Oh yes Paypal were kind enough to let me know that Facebook had refunded me. Thanks for FUCK ALL!!!!

Looks like things may well pick up again over here at Cage Amateurs UK Towers. Lou Lou is back with us scribing some stuff so we can look forward to some real good interviews in the near future. Never has a more motley looking crew been together in the world of combat sport in such a long time. Happy Days. 

You may have had some problems getting either the cageamateursuk.com or striketapandgrapple.com websites for a while now. Hopefully and I say hopefully it should be ok as after getting another website with the idea of moving everything there I have realised it was a massive fuck up and now have reactivated this one. Only problem being it is now costing me double, but there you go. I am also going to be going through the site and hope to standardise it a bit and sort out any links that have died over time. We will have to see how that one goes.

Update On Tim Hague

Since the piece I wrote below there has been a sad turn in Tim's situation with the Canadian fighter passing away at 34 years of age. Thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time. Andrew Juby who Tim and Manager Wayne stayed with during their time in the England has written a few words about Tim and Wayne's time with him and his wife. Read Andy's thoughts.

Ultimate BKB

If you can see this then things have gone to plan but somehow I think your not reading this. Click Here for Ultimate BKB at Colwick Hall

Tim Hague

Was kind of sad to hear about Tim Hague this morning. According to various News outlets Tim is in a coma after being knocked out in a boxing bout and I quote " Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague has been declared brain dead after suffering a knockout loss during a boxing match last night (Fri., June 16, 2017)."

Some of you may remember Tim came over to the UK two years to arrange a fight with BBAD fighter Michael Ferry. That never happened with Canadian Hague preferring to fight in an MMA bout in Russia, which he lost. This didn't go down well with the UK Bare Knuckle Boxing community and he left having less fans than when he arrived.

That aside no one likes to see this kind of thing happen but if nothing else it brings back into focus how dangerous these kind of sports are.

Site Stuff

As you can see there is nothing on this page. Fear not there is plenty too look around on the site while I get my shit together and sort the site out. As you may know, may not know or couldn't give a shite I was going to let Cage Amateurs UK go but after some thought I realised I enjoy doing it and wanted to keep something I have spent the last five years on and carry on with things.

My biggest fear is I don't want to make more come backs than Status Quo so this is it whatever happens. I digress what I really need to say is that Saturday I was at Shaun and Amanda Smith's show in Nottingham so I will be launching with their show very soon.

Thanks for keeping the faith

p.s. Anyone who writes about any Combat Sport who wouldn't mind me putting their stuff on this site give me a shout I will be very greatfull.
