Bubb enjoys first title

NOT satisfied with just the sole title belt hanging around his light welterweight frame, High Impact muay thai gun Charlie Bubb is aiming to unify all three state titles.

Fresh off claiming a points decision in his International Sport Karate Association state muay thai title bout in Wyong last Saturday night, the 15-year-old is now eyeing off both the World Kickboxing Association and World Muaythai Council belts.

If and when he does earn them, Bubb isn’t done there either.

“There’s three of them that I hope to get, then move on to the Australian,” the confident Bubb said.

On his knees early on, Bubb was forced to dig deep his 64.5 kilogram division title bout.

Under the watchful eye of trainer Anthony Wharton throughout the five two-minute rounds, Bubb eventually came out on top thanks to a knee in the second round.

From that point, he didn’t look back.

“The first round was really difficult,” he said. 

“He almost knocked me out a couple of times. The second round I just game out, grit my teeth and cut him with a knee and just controlled the fight from there on.”

The points win was Bubb’s first title victory.

“It didn’t feel real,” he added. 

“After the fight I was too tired. It really hit on the Sunday. “I’ve been fighting for a little over a year... ever since I first started I wanted the state title.”
