Almighty FC 24 was a spectacular event this past weekend in Liverpool from top to bottom. From Raphael Uchegbu and Tom Mullen lighting it up in the Main and Co-Main events to the amateur prelims. A night full of fun fights and vicious stoppages, so now we’ve got the performance bonuses.
If you missed the event, you can catch the fights uploaded on the Almighty YouTube channel in a short time. Thank you to Ray Thompson, the promoter of Almighty, for revealing the bonuses to us.
Almighty FC 24 Fight of the Night: Jack Dunleavy vs Charlie Balmer
The Creature and Jack Dunny went to war in a bout that more than earned its merit as the fight of the night. Both men had their fair share of success, but it was Dunleavy who’d emerge victoriously. After a back and forth affair, Dunleavy landed three vicious straights, one after the other. Down went Charlie Balmer, and the finish ensued. Jack Dunleavy walks away victorious, and Charlie walks away with a fantastic performance of his own. One of many special fights from this past Almighty event.
Almighty FC 24 Team of the Night: Aspire Combat Sports Academy
Who else? Going a staggering 6-0 on the night, Aspire cleaned the sheets and went home with every win possible. If anybody doubted the level of the fighters at Aspire, then they were proved wrong this past weekend. Tom Mullen, Marlon Jones, Scott Johnson, Jack Dunleavy, Ellie Davies, and Charlie Boulton all walked out with their hands raised in their fights. Coach Dean Garnett was quick to point the praise in the direction of Coach Phil Turner. The fighters did so as well, which to us at CSUK proves the level of coach that Phil truly is. Going 6-0 at any event would be incredible, and to do it at a show like Almighty FC 24 really shows the form that Aspire fighters and coaches are currently in.
Almighty FC 24 Finishes of the Night: Teddy Stringer and Kurtis Campbell
No surprise here as Teddy Stringer nabs one of the finishes of the night for his spectacular submission of Tiarnan Loughran. Tiarnan walked into this one undefeated and, within a matter of seconds, was put out. Stringer reclaims his 70KG Championship with Almighty and does so looking in the best form he ever has. Could a fight with George Staines or Kurtis Campbell be next?
Kurtis Campbell had a dazzling performance, with his suffocating yet relaxed top game smothering Kyle Jones before The Pink Panther found his finish. Now holding four Championships across three weight classes and three promotions, Kurtis has the world at his hands. We believe he’s going to take it and then deliver on the various promises he’s made throughout his career. There are fantastic days to come for Kurtis Campbell.
A Special Night
If this weekend didn’t show you the level at which Almighty operates, then you may not have a pulse. From the beginning to the end, not a single fight disappointed, with the vast majority OVER delivering. Ray Thompson and company have something special on their hands with Almighty, and when they’re back in Barnsley, you can bet the house that Combat Sports UK will have all the coverage.
