Elijah Everill takes Golden Glove crowns

Elijah Everill lead the way for Great Britain with a clean sweep of victories at the WAKO Golden Glove European Cup in Venice, Italy.

The opening event of the 2019 competition season was as busy and successful as can be expected for the ever growing World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO).

Moving into 2019, Allstar Elijah Everill has found himself becoming the man to beat, having taken gold after gold last year.

He's started the season in familiar fashion, blitzing his way through a gruelling schedule to take a whopping total of four gold medals.

Italian Matteo Pasqualetto was the first defeated finalist in the -74kg points fighting. Everill then moved up a weight to the -79kg section, once again taking the top step after bearing Mark McDermott from Ireland.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Elijah also tasted victory in the illustrious open weight 'Grand Champion' division. Taking on and defeating Anatoli Kuschnir of Top Ten Team Germany.

Further highlighting his all round skill, Elijah added his final title by claiming victory over Italian fighter Octavian Ogrezeanu in the Light Contact (Continuous) -74kg.

Team Bristol's Cory Cook added a fifth home nations title in the Points Fighting -69kg, winning through over Gabriele Lanzilao in the final.

In the Heavyweight sections, Ryan Nicholson from Bolton Dragons added a Bronze in the Points Fighting -94kg.
