Andy Howson defends his ISKA World 55 MAX championship at the Leeds Town Hall, Saturday 7th May, against friend and foe Dean James, who holds the #1 rank in Britain. Here is video footage of the likeable Howson preparing for his bout, coached by Bad Company's Richard Smith.



Also featured in the co-main event, Howson's teammate and fellow ISKA world champion Jordan Watson. The youngster - who made headlines last year with his close bout against superstar Buakaw Por.Pramuk, and his subsequent world title win - defended his ISKA strap last month in France, and as such this bout is a non-title affair. He will face the #2 ranked 70kg fighter in Britain in a rematch, Craig Jose, in a fight to determine the top ranked super-welterweight in the country.

As I reported earlier this year, Watson was offered a shot at p4p #1 kickboxer Giorgio Petrosyan, and coupled with his world title win and fight with Buakaw, there is no doubt that should K-1 survive, their MAX division of the 70kg elite will likely be the destination for Jordan's talents.
