Riccardo won at Invictus Kickboxing Arena and is the new WAKO PRO Intercontinental champion!

Great victory for Riccardo Lecca against a very tough fighter as Mustapha Haida. Some of his impression about the match:

0067-Riccardo-Lecca-Vs-Mustapha-Haida

<<I would like to thank all my fans, my staff and all the people supported me. This fight has been special because before my match I was also at the corner of my young fighter Mattia Faraoni as coach. So after his match – Mattia won by KO – I felt a little tired and mentally exausted. This is why I started my match against Haida without the right concentration. I went down twice on the canvas in the first half of the match, as everybody have seen.

But after the second count I was able to felt the real power I still had inside me…and I started use it. I tought about all the hard training I have done and all the people who were all around me…I said to myself << now or never! Go there and kick him till the end!>>
And so it was.
Haida is a real champion with great fighting skills and a big heart. I really must thank him for the great match he did.

Once again I would like to thank everyone on my corner, especially Massimo Farina, Khalid Mazhoum, Federico Catizone and Mousid Akhamrane, they gave me all their support in this beautiful challenge!

This match is the exact expression of the phrase that I tattooed on my back:  “PER ASPERA AD HONOREM”…that means: Through the difficulties to the honor! Thank you!>>

Riccardo wins the prestige fight in Glory World Series

Great victory  by knockout in the first round for Riccardo in a location that could not be more exciting: the prestige fight that preceded Glory World Series Final 8 (Palalottomatica, Rome).

Some considerations from Riccardo the day after the match:

<< I’m really happy about the match, I knew that my boxing skills and my power punches were  stronger compared to my opponent so I immediately started hitting hard and move around, trying to stay out from my opponent’s middle kicks.

In the past week I actually had a knee injury, and until a few days before the match I still was not sure I could fight…I went forward with the right determination and decided to close the match as soon as possible in the first round, and I did it!

My strong point is boxing, but it was a kickboxing match so I paid attention to both of his knees and that kicks. D’Amuri was an uncomfortable fighter because his long arms and legs… so I could not be static. I am very happy because I finished this match flawless and without injuries…and the just started season is so full of important events!

Next meeting in K1 style will be the INVICTUS KICKBOXING ARENA (http://www.invictusarena.com/) on February 9 in Rome, I will fight for the intercontinental WAKO PRO title belt against Mustapha Haida. A special thanks goes to my staff up Farina Khalid Mazhoum, Federico Catizone (Cutman) and Gabriele Giacomino (physiotherapist-physical therapy), big thanks to them all! >>
