Yesterday in Melbourne, Australia, Powerplay Promotions held another event, this time headlined by one of the top unsigned 70kg fighters Steve Moxon taking on Maseh Nuristani.

Moxon has dabbled at higher weights in the past to keep active, like he did in his win over Expedito Valin in May, which was at 75kg. This fight was more of the same, with Nuristani being much bigger and usually fighting much higher in weight than Moxon.

The weight didn't matter though, as Moxon picked up another win, stopping Nuristani in the second round after dropping him at the end of the first round. It's another win for Moxon this year, who's only recent blemish on his record is a split decision loss to Frank Giorgi in April under modified Thai rules.

Moxon definitely deserves a shot on the big stage of kickboxing and hopefully sooner or later he'll get his chance in a big organization like K-1 or Glory. With their 70kg tournaments both already started, it might take a while though. As for what's next for Moxon, he's scheduled to face Fadi Merza on October 20 in Australia.
