NAAFS Combat Challenge 19 Report





On March 24th NAAFS put on Combat Challenge 19. A really solid amateur card with some potential stars. Some really exciting finishes Highlighted by a brutal knock out by Shane Holbert. Also impressive performances by Josh Lasich who not only won, but defeated an undefeated amateur champion in under a minute, as well as once again Fadi Shuman putting on a great performance. Keep an eye on Shuman, he has star written all over him. On a night with several female bouts, Ashley Hawkins was the stand-out for me, as she showed she is one of the top female prospects in the area. Roya Darvishian also impressed me and I felt she was robbed in a decision she should have won. This was a card that really displayed why the NAAFS is one of the top organizations in the sort when it comes to amateur fighters.
