Jul. 31, 2017 – Square Circle New York athlete Jonathan Crespo competed at Ring Battles at the Elmcor Rec Center in Corona Queens over the weekend. It was a good promotion, put together by Willie Rivera and Luis Ruiz and the PKF sanctioning body president Jonas Nunez. All in all, there were 20 scheduled Muay Thai and Glory/K1 rules amateur bouts that were exciting and face paced.
Jonathan did as well as he could in the opening round but got caught with a well placed, well timed knee strike resulting in a TKO for the other athlete and his team. After a quick examination, Jonathan was doing fine and will be back in training in no time.
