The first A1 World Combat Cup event of the year took place on Friday in Melbourne, Australia, and atop the card was an A1 middleweight title fight between Yohan Lidon and Steve Moxon.
Moxon fights Jordan Watson at 70kg at GLORY 5 London on March 23, but this fight was against the much bigger Lidon at 73kg. The fight went the full five round distance and Lidon won a split decision in what has been described as a close fight.
Lidon rebounds from a loss in another close fight to Karim Ghajji on February 2. Next for him is a rematch against Yodsanklai Fairtex on March 2 in France. Moxon had his four fight winning streak snapped, and as aforementioned, steps into the ring again on March 23 at GLORY 5 London against Jordan Watson.
